June 23, 2020

Equity and debt financing will fund the development of the first phase of Stillwater Crystal Springs

DALLAS, June 23, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged equity and financing for the development of Stillwater Crystal Springs, a 386-unit, Class A+ apartment community in Fort Worth, Texas.

The JLL team worked on behalf of Stillwater Capital (“Stillwater”) to arrange an equity investment from CrossHarbor Capital Partners. In addition, the team also assisted Stillwater by placing a 40-month, floating-rate construction loan that was provided by Texas Capital Bank.

Stillwater Crystal Springs will be situated on an approximately 7.5-acre site at 5336 White Settlement Rd. along the Trinity River in Fort Worth’s River District, which is approximately three miles west of downtown. Due for completion in 2022, the project has broken ground and will consist of studio, one- and two-bedroom units totaling 308,250 square feet. Planned community amenities include an elevated amenity deck, resort-style pool, courtyard with outdoor lounge area and fire pit, expansive coworking space, dog park, bike storage, fitness center, controlled building access and garage parking.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Senior Director De’On Collins.

“We are excited to bring a high-quality project to the River District area of Fort Worth,” said Stillwater Partner Clay Roby. “The unique topography of the site provides an opportunity for elevated amenity decks and incredible views. With direct access to the Trinity Trail, the project will also address increasing demand for developments that promote density and walkability in a thoughtful and community-focused way.”
