Folsom Treehouse Update (Out of Bankruptcy)

Hello Neighbors,

Another sign that things are stabilizing a bit. You've heard about this in the local news... some of the larger foreclosures / failures are getting bought up, like the Folsom Treehouse project.

This just in from the Sac Business Journal - thank you SBJ!

Folsom Project Bought out of Foreclosure

Aug 17, 2009 - The Sacramento Business Journal

A real estate investment firm said Monday it has acquired a 25-acre residential development in Folsom through foreclosure proceedings and plans to develop the property with new homes.

PCCP LLC, which has an office in Sacramento, will resume construction at the Folsom Treehouse master-planned community, located at Prairie City and Iron Point roads, in a partnership with Signature Properties. The company acquired the project last week. The property had been in possession of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and United Commercial Bank, after the original loan of $22.5 million went into default last year. PCCP acquired a discounted note from the FDIC and United Commercial in March.

The development is made up of 291 finished lots, with 99 single-family lots, 164 condominium lots and 28 constructed or partially constructed homes.
The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Company vice president Jim Galovan said PCCP, which focuses on recapitalizing distressed real estate, has targeted Folsom for investment in the past due to its strong job base anchored by the 7,000-employee Intel campus. The area currently has a low inventory of new homes, he said.
