TPP Fund will capitalize on the wealth potential of real estate investments in a promising urban neighborhood

TPP Real Estate Development Fund, LP (TPP Fund) was formed to create investor wealth and positive impact by acquiring, developing, selling and managing market rate, transit-oriented multifamily housing and mixed-use properties in underserved urban markets.

TPP Fund's current focus neighborhood is Tioga, located adjacent to the Temple University Health Sciences Campus in North Philadelphia.

  • TPP Capital Management Group, LLC has site control over 127,980SF of vacant land in 41 parcels.
  • TPP Fund will raise $100M.
  • Construction work will begin when the Fund has $7.5M.
  • The planned term of the Fund is 8 years.
  • Minimum investment is $100K for accredited individuals; $250K for institutional investors.

The investment opportunity is structured to combine income, principal investment growth and elements of capital preservation. Investors will profit from the sale of condominiums and the leasing of residential, retail and office space.

A private offering of Limited Partnership Interests will begin in April 2018. Click the button below to visit the investor portal, where you can request access to the private placement memorandum.

Five major positive indicators point to attractive investment returns

TPP Capital's knowledge and research have identified significant wealth potential for investments in Tioga. Major positive indicators are 1) proximity to Temple University Health Sciences Campus, 2) expanding transit infrastructure, 3) increasing K-12 education options, 4) economic and demographic growth momentum, and 5) a politically favorable development environment.

Demand for housing near workplace: More than 5,500 people work on the Temple health campus, which spans 4 city blocks on Broad Street, between Allegheny and Venango. The campus includes Temple University Hospital, School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy, School of Dentistry, College of Public Health and a Shriners Hospital for Children. At present, the surrounding area offers no attractive options for moderate or higher income employees to live near their workplace.

Convenient public transportation: Existing transit options make it easy for residents to get to and from Center City without a car. The investment area is bookended by two Broad Street Line subway stations: Erie and Allegheny. The Erie station offers express service to Center City. SEPTA's bus routes 4 and 16 serve Broad Street. Two blocks south of the investment area are SEPTA's North Broad Regional Rail station and Amtrak's North Philadelphia station. A New York investment group has applied for a $20M grant to jump-start a $162M redevelopment project adjacent to North Philadelphia station.

Increasing K-12 education options: In addition to the public elementary school in Tioga (Kenderton K-8), Mastery Charter Schools operates two nearby elementary schools (Grover Cleveland K-8 and new for 2018-19, Mastery Prep K-2), a middle school (Gratz Prep) and a high school (Simon Gratz). Next Generation Ministries operates a private Christian school (Spring Garden Academy PreK-8). A new, $40M Cristo Rey High School is under construction in Tioga at 17th & Allegheny. This independent Catholic school follows a work-study model in which students earn money toward tuition through part-time employment at a partnering business.

  • 161 market rate rental units
