Alamo Creek

In early July, 2010, McKinley entered into a partnership agreement with Alamo Glenn Partners (land owner/developer), whereby McKinley has agreed to fund certain land carry costs (mainly debt service) over a limited number of years. The property consists of 43.3 acres, and is located in southeast Vacaville, within the Southtown master planned community. Roughly three quarters of the site is entitled for 141 single-family lots which was sold in 2014, while the balance of the property is approved for 200 apartment units. The business plan is to re-entitle the apartment site for 68 single family units, then sell the subdivisions.

The Vineyard

In March, 2010, McKinley entered into a joint venture with Argosy Capital (the Investment Team) to acquire a 59.8 acre site in Ontario, Riverside County, at a distressed price from California Bank & Trust.

The property is entitled with a Tentative Map, a Development Agreement, and improvement plans read for Final Map submittal. The entitlements provide for 229 residential lots, and a 10.2-acre school site. If the School District elects not to purchase the 10.2-acre site, the site could be rezoned for an additional 47 residential lots.

McKinley has been tracking this property as it went through the foreclosure process, bank failure, and FDIC asset transfer to the current bank. Distinguished Homes, the original project developer, became the asset manager/operator of the project, and a co-investor.

The project business plan envisions two disposition strategies: sell the project without improving the 59.8 acre site, or install the infrastructure improvements on a phased basis then sell finished lots to a single or multiple home builders.

The Mosaic property, comprised of approximately 18.7 acres of a larger 80 acre subdivision, is in a prominent location on the Southern side of Menifee, in Riverside County. It is located in one of the fastest growing employment corridors in the country, between Ontario (30 minutes) to the north and Temecula (15 minutes) to the South. The property sits in a highly visible location off the Highway 215 corridor, greatly increasing sales traffic, yet distant enough to avoid sound impacts from the freeway. McKinley acquired the property under distressed circumstances from Key Bank in April , 2008. The acquisition price included prepaid fees and graded pads making the acquisition cost below the lot’s replacement value.
