Berkadia’s JV Equity & Structured Capital Team Marks Record-Breaking 2021

Berkadia JV Equity & Structured Capital marked a record-breaking year in 2021, having capitalized more than $2 billion in property transactions. The team, led by Chinmay Bhatt, Noam Franklin and Cody Kirkpatrick, sourced institutional equity partners for 49 commercial real estate transactions across the country, including market rate multifamily acquisitions, ground-up multifamily projects, single-family-rental/build-to-rent communities, hotel-to-multifamily conversions, student housing assets and property recapitalizations.  

Since being acquired by Berkadia in 2019, the team has capitalized more than $3 billion in property transactions across 18 different states. 
“This has been one of the most active years ever for our team on account of the red-hot multifamily market,” said Bhatt. “There’s more capital than ever chasing multifamily deals, including a lot of foreign capital sources which previously focused on office and retail assets. Given these dynamics, we anticipate 2022 will be another strong year across the residential spectrum.”
