Huntington Meadows is both companies’ first Austin acquisition and FCP’s 18th in Texas in the past four years. It was sourced through an off-market opportunity based on an existing relationship, according to a press release. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The investment is Maryland-based FCP’s third with VaultCap, headquartered in Dallas.

Huntington Meadows will operate as a “mixed affordable asset,” said FCP’s Cole Kellogg. That designation required approval from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, a state agency that oversees and administers funding for local housing and community-based opportunities and assistance.

“Mark (Christ) and I are incredibly excited to continue our FCP relationship with the Huntington Meadows acquisition. To be able to enter the Austin market with an asset of this quality and attractive basis is a real boon for our firm,” said VaultCap Partners’ Ryan Heddleston.

Marcus & Millichap’s Wes Racht, Bard Hoover and Nick Fluellen represented the seller on the deal.
