PeakMade Real Estate (“Peak”) and Blue Vista Capital Management (“Blue Vista”) recently closed construction financing on Theory Gainesville located just blocks from the University of Florida and Theory Interlock located just west of Georgia Tech in the vibrant West Midtown sub-market.  These projects represent a continued expansion of Peak/Blue Vista’s Theory-branded development portfolio in major university markets. Construction financing for Theory Gainesville was provided by Squaremile/Pac-West.  Construction financing for Theory Interlock was provided by Truist.

Upon completion, Theory Gainesville will contain 298 units and 861 beds across 4 unique buildings and offer a variety of unit types from studio to five-bedroom and townhome units. The project is in a premier location just northeast of the University of Florida campus and minutes from downtown Gainesville.  The fully furnished units will include market leading features and finishes.  The project’s robust amenity package will include a rooftop pool and state-of-the art fitness center, large club rooms, numerous study/meeting spaces, and two parking garages with ample scooter and bike parking.

Theory Interlock will contain 240 units and 674 beds in a 7-story mid-rise building offering a variety of unit types from studio to five-bedroom and townhome units. The project is part of the Interlock mixed-use development which is a premier destination in Atlanta’s West Midtown submarket just blocks from Georgia Tech.  The project will sit above a new Publix grocery store and be adjacent to other brand name retail and restaurant tenants.  The project’s amenities include a rooftop pool and state-of-the-art fitness center, two outdoor courtyards, a spacious 2-story club room, and ample parking, study rooms and meeting spaces.

Both projects are scheduled to open for the Fall 2023 academic year.

“These are tremendous projects within walking distance of two thriving universities.  We are extremely excited to continue the growth of the Theory brand and to serve the growing student housing needs in these major university markets.” commented Jeff Githens, President of Development.

“Blue Vista is thrilled to partner with Peak on these two development projects that have been in planning for years.  The hard work, dedication and experience of Peak’s development team helped us overcome multiple challenges and complexities and we are now poised to deliver two Class A student housing projects at two of the most prestigious and dynamic universities in the country.” states Jason Schwartz, Managing Principal & Co-Head of Blue Vista Equity Group.

PeakMade Real Estate announced that they will be retiring the Peak Campus and PeakMade Communities brands and evolving their identity to operate under one voice and one company, PeakMade Real Estate. This brand strategy will allow Peak to continue to grow as a vertically integrated real estate services company, while retaining the legacy of their initial brands.

“When we established PeakMade Real Estate, it was always our goal to create a consistent approach to how we work in all aspects of our business, whether working under our student platform, Peak Campus or our multifamily platform, PeakMade Communities,” said Bob Clark, Chief Executive Officer. “We knew that this was just the beginning, and at a pivotal moment in our journey, we would move into phase 2 of our brand: bridging the gap between our platforms and creating a space where everyone under PeakMade could thrive, work together, and be a valuable partner in any aspect of our business.”

Alongside the brand strategy update, PeakMade Real Estate has also worked towards launching a new website, consolidated social media platforms, and will continue to meet the needs of their clients under a brand that aligns with their expansion into new verticals such as build-to-rent and technology services.

“We are very excited to unite our brands under the PeakMade name,” said Casey Petersen, Chief Operating Officer for PeakMade Real Estate. “We have big plans to continue to grow our platform in new verticals, and PeakMade provides us a springboard with which to do so.”
