Last year, the partnership acquired three apartment communities with a total of 850 units in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The fund would also acquire distressed commercial assets.
In February, 13th Floor Investments, led by Arnaud Karsenti, initiated a $300 million fund focused on growing markets nationwide, as well as distressed properties in South Florida and elsewhere. 13th Floor plans to use proceeds from the fund to purchase a 2.4-acre development site in Ojus that the firm has under contract. The developer plans to build a multifamily project with up to 350 units.
