Canyon Partners Closes Largest U.S. CRE Debt Vehicle to Date

Canyon Partners Real Estate LLC has reached the final close of Canyon Laurel Fund II (CLF II), a US real estate debt vehicle with more than $650 million of assets across the fund and related co-investments. This marks Los Angeles-based Canyon’s largest U.S. real estate debt vehicle to date.

“The growth of our debt platform can be attributed to a combination of ongoing support and confidence from our existing partners as well as a growing market appreciation for our strategy and capabilities,” said Robin Potts, Canyon’s co-head of real estate. 

Potts added, “The COVID-19 pandemic has created an even more compelling environment for real estate debt as lenders, owners, and developers have been faced with increasing liquidity needs, while Canyon’s positioning coming into the crisis allowed us to move quickly.”

Canyon has already deployed more than 60% of CLF II across a combination of primary originations and secondary market purchases.
