ASREF PROVIDES FINANCING TO ACQUIRE AND REDEVELOP A LONG-DORMANT FORMER COMMUNITY HUB

South Dallas, TX – The American South Real Estate Fund has provided a $1.75 million to E Smith Communities to finance the acquisition and renovation of a long-dormant former community hub in South Dallas’ Lancaster Corridor. The 30,000 square-foot, 2.9-acre building has been vacant for nearly 3 years and is located in a low-income census tract with over 39% poverty. The project, which is near the VA Medical Center, will add much-needed office space to the area and connects downtown Dallas to the growing International Inland Port of Dallas. The project has already garnered strong interest from potential anchor tenants that are on track to create more than 200 permanent, full-time jobs for the area’s mostly low- and moderate-income job seekers. Many of the prospective tenants also plan to bring needed services to the community.

ASREF PROVIDES FINANCING TO ACQUIRE AND REDEVELOP HISTORIC ST. JAMES HOTEL

Selma, AL – The American South Real Estate Fund has provided $3.4 million to Rhaglan Hospitality to finance the acquisition and redevelopment of a shuttered historic hotel. The St. James Hotel is situated along the Alabama River near the landmark Edmund Pettus Bridge — site of the 1965 Civil Rights march that became known as Bloody Sunday. Built in 1837, it is the only surviving riverfront antebellum hotel in the Southeast. The St. James will be one of only nine hotels in the Southeast to be part of the coveted Tapestry Collection by Hilton brand. Reopening the St. James Hotel is a top priority for the Selma Redevelopment Authority, the Mayor and City Council, as the property is viewed as a cornerstone of downtown redevelopment. Upon completion, it is projected to bring more than 40 new jobs to an area with 31.7% unemployment and nearly 54% poverty.
