S2 Capital acquired The Hangar in May 2017. The Hangar is a 268-unit community in Cedar Hill, TX.
Business Plan & Execution
Previously known as High Point Village, this two-story garden multifamily community was originally constructed in 1978.
The thesis for this investment was an opportunity to purchase a well-located, poorly managed, underperforming property at an attractive price per unit.
With help from S2’s affiliate, S2 Construction, S2 spent about $17k per unit renovating the property and converting it from a Class “C” to Class “B” asset.
Interior renovations included all new flooring, countertops, appliances, paint, and fixtures.
Exterior renovations were focused on existing amenities, adding an outdoor living area, dog park, and rebranding the property.
S2 originally acquired the project at only 40% occupancy but believed with help from its vertically integrated management company, they could quickly stabilize and increase NOI.
By time of sale, The Hangar was at 97% occupancy and S2 had successfully increased rents 44% from $705 to $1,018 while renovating 87% of units at the property.
