Leading developer acquires 1.26-acre property with plans to develop
67-unit luxury condominium property


HOUSTON (Jan. 3, 2019) — Mission Capital Advisors announced that its Debt and Equity Finance Group has arranged a $7.3-million non-recourse land loan for the acquisition of 5656 San Felipe Street, a 1.26-acre development site in Houston. The borrower, Houston-based Pelican Builders, is working to finalize plans for an as-of-right, 17-story condominium project, which will include 67 luxury residences and 191 parking spaces. The Mission Capital team of Jason Parker, Steven Buchwald and Alex Draganiuk arranged the financing from a national real estate finance company.

Located at the nexus of the highly desirable Galleria/Uptown and Tanglewood neighborhoods, the 322,708-square-foot property will provide the area with much-needed luxury residential product. Current plans for the development call for 67 well-appointed residences with on-site amenities that include a pool deck, resident lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center and a dog park. The project is expected to break ground in October 2019.

“Pelican is one of most seasoned condo developers in the region, and we received a lot of interest from capital providers interested in providing them with the land loan that will pave the way for the condo development,” said Parker. “With the property’s strong location and the unmet demand for luxury condos in this prime area of Houston, we were able to structure favorable financing with a national real estate finance company.”

With its central location near leading commercial and residential neighborhoods, the development will offer residents easy access to a wide range of shopping and cultural / entertainment options, including Whole Foods, iPic Theater and the Houston Country Club. It is within 1.5 miles of The Galleria, the fourth largest retail complex in the country, with high-end tenants including Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

Houston-based Pelican Builders has been active in residential development for more than 40 years. Led by Robert F. Bland, Robert F. Bland, Jr. and Derek Darnell, the company’s portfolio includes more than 2,000 residences, spread across high-rise and mid-rise buildings, townhomes and apartment projects.
