CrowdStreet Celebrates Crowdfunding Success and 14 Percent Return for Investors with Mainstreet

Mainstreet's Bloomington property was the first senior health care property to leverage crowdfunding for fundraising and investor management.

PORTLAND, OR–(Marketwired – Aug 26, 2015) –  CrowdStreet, an online platform enabling commercial real estate developers and operators to efficiently and effectively acquire, convert and manage investors for their projects, today announced the sale of Stonecroft Health Campus, a senior health care property crowdfunded through CrowdStreet’s marketplace and developed by Mainstreet®, the nation’s largest developer of transitional care properties. Stonecroft Health Campus, located in Bloomington, Ind., generated a 14 percent annualized return on investment to investors.

“Mainstreet’s Bloomington project was the first use of crowdfunding to raise capital for a senior health care property,” said Tore Steen, CEO of CrowdStreet. “Now it’s the first to be sold and deliver the projected returns to its investors. The success of the project underscores the value gained by both investors and sponsors when institutional-quality commercial real estate opportunities are made accessible online to accredited investors nationwide.”

Using CrowdStreet’s marketplace, Mainstreet was able to raise more than $1.6 million from U.S. accredited investors within a four-week period in mid-2014. The project attracted dozens of investors from across the country who contributed between $10,000 to more than $250,000.

“Mainstreet’s success to date has been driven, in large part, by our continuous pursuit of new and innovative opportunities,” said Zeke Turner, founder and CEO of Mainstreet. “We found the perfect partner in CrowdStreet to test the crowdfunded real estate model. We fulfilled our mission to transform lives through state-of-the-art health care in southern Indiana. And in turn, Mainstreet was able to offer a new, exciting and ultimately rewarding investment opportunity to CrowdStreet members.”

Stonecroft Health Campus is a 66,197-square-foot, Next Generation® property, providing post-acute care (short-stay rehabilitation and therapy) and assisted living in a service-rich environment. Construction started on Stonecroft Health Campus in June 2014 and the campus opened in mid-July 2015.

“The Bloomington project was my very first investment through the CrowdStreet marketplace,” said Mike Holland, a semiconductor sales executive. “The process was understandable, transparent and easy to complete through CrowdStreet’s platform. I’m very happy to be a part of this full-cycle investment.”

“I was one of the initial investors in the first posting on the CrowdStreet marketplace,” said Gardner Williams, principle broker at Compass Commercial Real Estate. “Everything was seamless, communications from the sponsor were timely and my principal was returned early. I fully intend to reinvest this money in other commercial real estate projects posted on CrowdStreet.”
