HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

A partnership between Nitya Capital (“Nitya”), Silverpeak and the Olayan Group was formed with the completion of a $150 million recapitalization of a portfolio of five Class B multifamily assets located in Houston, Texas. Nitya ultimately delivered a solid net return to its investors in the transaction and fully realized the investment. In conjunction with the recapitalization, Nitya will remain in its role as an owner-operator of the assets and will continue to focus on quality property management and execution of value-add improvements across the properties.

Totaling over 1,500 units, the portfolio is comprised of five separate workforce housing assets that are well-located in attractive Houston submarkets with easy access to the city’s major employment hubs.

Founder, Swapnil Agarwal, “Nitya Capital was created to reposition real estate assets and unlock significant value for its investors. This is possible due to the meticulous execution of each property’s detailed investment strategy. This transaction is yet another example proving our strategy works well, and we are proud to continue our involvement with Olayan and Silverpeak to unlock additional value.”

“Houston is a market with strong demographics that support the need for quality workforce housing, and we look forward to working with Nitya’s team given their local experience and deep knowledge of this sector,” said Masood Bhatti, Managing Director at Silverpeak.
