The Story Behind the Sale of CityView

May 14, 2015 at 1:04 pm Leave a comment

According to this piece on Triad Business Journal’s site, Signature Property Group’s sale of CityView to The Carroll Cos. was motivated by their need to free up capital for projects outside of the Triad:

The sale, a first for Signature in its 25 years of business, lifts constraints on cash resources, allowing the group to develop four more properties in the year ahead, said owner Frank Auman.

“The main reason we’re selling it is to fund expansion outside the Triad,” he said. “We currently have three properties under contract between Raleigh and Burlington, and we are in negotiations with a fourth in the Raleigh area. We plan to start two this fall and two next spring.”

He declined to provide further information about those plans.

The Carroll Cos motivation for the purchase seems to be deepening its presence downtown:

Carroll said the acquisition will help The Carroll Cos. take advantage of a “variety of synergies and operating efficiencies that come from owning three projects just blocks from each other in downtown.”

CityView joins Carroll’s other major downtown projects: Center Pointe, 98 luxury condominiums in a 17-story toweron North Elm Street; and Bellemeade Village, a large-scale mixed-use project planned near NewBridge Bank Park. Bellemeade Village, a $50 million project that will include a Hyatt Place hotel and 300 upscale apartments, could see site work begin “any moment,” Carroll said Wednesday.
