RCG Acquisitions Team
RCG’s most dominant platform involves the acquisition of existing properties that are undervalued, underperforming, or need to be repositioned. These assets have significant upside, and are commonly referred to as “value-add” projects. Our strong tenant relationships, combined with our capital strength, allow us to reposition assets quickly and efficiently. In addition, our typical transaction involves a motivated seller with issues ranging from expiring debt, partnership dissolutions, divesture of non-core assets, an anchor tenant vacating, or liquidity issues. RCG’s advantage includes the ability to close all cash, assume a loan, or creatively structure the transaction to meet the seller’s needs.
Ground-up Development: RCG’s ground-up development program focuses on single-tenant and multi-tenant shopping centers. This process involves entitlement of land, development, design, construction, and ultimately the leasing and management of the property. Oftentimes this process is facilitated through existing tenant relationships in which RCG receives market directives and is able to develop projects with a specific tenant in mind, further enhancing relationships.
Redevelopment: RCG’s redevelopment initiative focuses on repositioning existing shopping centers in order to accommodate today’s tenant’s needs. Through the modification and reconfiguration of existing centers, RCG is able to revitalize distressed assets, attract quality tenants, and create synergy in a previously distressed area. As a result, the community surrounding the center thrives and the municipality benefits from the increased tax base.
On a selective basis, RCG is willing to enter into a joint venture partnership whereby RCG contributes equity to a qualified sponsor for new acquisitions, new developments, or a recapitalization. These transactions can be structured as a joint venture, mezzanine debt, or other method to facilitate the transaction.
