Waypoint Real Estate Investments, a real estate investment firm, has closed its first preferred equity investment. While the amount was not disclosed, the investment will be used to develop vertical and horizontal infrastructure on the final 149 undeveloped acres within Trinity Lakes, a 1,600-acre master planned residential and mixed-use community in Fort Worth, Texas.
The company indicated that once the infrastructure is in place, the subdivided parcels are anticipated to be sold to various developers to construct a mix of commercial and residential projects.
