Greystone Housing Impact Investors LP Announces Sale of
Suites on Paseo
OMAHA, Nebraska -- Greystone Housing Impact Investors LP (NYSE: GHI) (the “Partnership”) announced today that on December 6, 2023, it sold Suites on Paseo (also known as The Essential), a 384-bed student housing property in San Diego, CA, to an affiliate of San Diego State University. The gross sales price was approximately $40.7 million when including the contract purchase price and accelerated master lease payments. The Partnership originally acquired a tax-exempt mortgage revenue bond secured by Suites on Paseo in December 2013 and obtained outright ownership of the property via a deed in lieu of foreclosure in September 2015.
“We are pleased to announce the sale of Suites on Paseo and to be in a position to redeploy the Partnership’s investment capital into our core multifamily investment strategies,” said Kenneth C. Rogozinski, Chief Executive Officer of the Partnership. “We are very appreciative of the work of Capstone On-Campus Management, their on-site staff, and the cooperation of San Diego State University and their advisors in bringing this transaction to a successful conclusion.”
The Partnership estimates it will recognize a gross gain on sale of approximately $9.9 million within net income for the fourth quarter of 2023, before settlement of final proceeds and expenses. The Partnership does not expect that the sale will materially impact its reported Cash Available for Distribution (“CAD”) as the gain on sale represents a recovery of prior depreciation expense that was not reflected in the Partnership’s previously reported CAD. The Partnership expects to report a taxable gain on sale of approximately $5.9 million, which will be allocated to investors on Schedule K-1 for tax year 2023 in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Internal Revenue Service.
