Land Fund I was formed in 2004 for the purpose of providing off balance sheet financing for publicly traded homebuilders in the southwest United States, more commonly known as "land banking". Land banking was a commonly used financial vehicle for large builders to control land and lots through third parties that relieved them of the burden of ownership. Land Fund I included nine separate land bank transactions from 2004-2006 for the acquisition and development of 890 residential lots. The transactions were located in Arizona (5) and Colorado (3) with Nevada (1).
The last Fund I investment was made in 2006, and Fund I was closed out in 2010. The total amount invested was $90 million including project level financing.
