Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a top national construction management firm and general contractor, and Acadia Healthcare Company Inc., a leading provider of behavioral healthcare services across the U.S., have broken ground on a new addition to Rio Vista Behavioral Health Hospital in El Paso, Texas.

Located at 1390 Northwestern Drive, the project will provide Rio Vista Behavioral Health with a new two-story, 40-bed unit and outdoor recreation space encompassing 38,000-SF, and a new one-story outpatient center with additional parking and flatwork encompassing 14,000-SF.

“We’re pleased to break ground on a project that will help Rio Vista build on the significant impact it’s made on the community.” said Bob Lemke, vice president of operations with AP Gulf States. “Mental illness and addiction rates have risen with population increases in major cities across Texas, causing a dire need for more access points for care. AP has a long and reputable history of managing health care projects across Texas, and we’re humbled to partner with Acadia and Rio Vista to expand the breadth of psychiatric and addiction treatment services to the people of El Paso.”

Rio Vista Behavioral Health is El Paso’s premier mental health hospital, offering comprehensive care for men, women, and children struggling with mental health and substance abuse concerns. The state-of-the-art facility provides inpatient services tailored to each patients’ individual needs on their path to recovery.

Recently, the treatment facility launched remote services to continue serving patients throughout the pandemic and opened a 20-bed S.T.A.R. Military and Veteran’s Unit to provide customized treatment programs tailored to the needs of active-duty service members, veterans and first responders.

Stengel Hill Architects designed the new addition. Construction on the expansion project will begin in January 2022 and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2023.

CALABASAS, Calif. Oct 8, 2021 – Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), a leading commercial real estate brokerage firm specializing in investment sales, financing, research and advisory services, announced today that its financing subsidiary, Marcus & Millichap Capital Corporation (MMCC) has entered into a strategic alliance with M&T Realty Capital Corporation (M&T Realty Capital). The strategic alliance will enable MMCC to provide clients with increased access to M&T Realty Capital’s affordable and conventional multifamily agency financing through a highly streamlined process with dedicated resources. M&T Realty Capital is a Fannie Mae DUS lender and an approved Freddie Mac multifamily lender for Freddie Mac’s Conventional and Targeted Affordable Housing loans.

As part of MMCC’s ongoing expansion, the alliance includes a preferred stock investment in M&T Realty Capital and the ability for MMCC to indemnify M&T Realty Capital for 50% of the credit risk losses for certain loans originated by MMCC through M&T Realty Capital’s Fannie Mae DUS platform. The strategic alliance will enable MMCC originators to access M&T Realty Capital’s streamlined underwriting and efficient transaction execution in this critical capital markets segment. Under the agreement, MMCC originators will continue to have the ability to clear the market on behalf of each client. Additionally, they will have access to M&T Realty Capital’s dedicated tools, resources, and expansive lending capacity, which are expected to significantly grow agency market share for MMCC’s sourcing business and M&T Realty Capital’s loan origination business.

In January 2021, MMCC named Evan Denner as Executive Vice President and Head of Business. Denner was instrumental in co-designing the partnership with Michael Berman, President and CEO of M&T Realty Capital, along with Beekman Advisors, who advised MMCC on the alliance.

Lewis is a Senior Vice President and Director of Agency Programs.

Hessam Nadji, President and CEO of Marcus & Millichap stated: “MMCC is well positioned to work seamlessly with M&T Realty Capital to expand agency financing for our multifamily clients with better tools and resources for our originators. Marcus & Millichap is the leader in multifamily brokerage and will better integrate agency financing with our client value proposition. The investment in this strategic alliance and willingness to indemnify M&T RCC for credit risk losses is driven by the agencies’ historically strong multifamily loan performance and very low losses, coupled with significant upside in growing our internal financing capture rate and M&T’s unique ability to enhance our client services.”

MMCC closed $2.73 billion of multifamily financing in the first half of 2021 and with this alliance will become M&T Realty Capital’s largest origination partner by loan volume. Marcus & Millichap and its Institutional Property Advisors (IPA) division closed $12.97 billion of multifamily sales in the first half of 2021. “Marcus & Millichap and IPA have a stellar reputation in the industry and specifically in the multifamily real estate segment,” stated Berman. “We are proud to have Marcus & Millichap Capital Corporation as our strategic alliance partner. The synergies across our brands will enable us to provide substantial opportunities for clients.”

The alliance will allow both firms to provide clients with the most competitive capital markets solutions secured by multifamily properties throughout the United States. MMCC originators will work directly with M&T Realty Capital’s origination and credit teams creating an efficient, transparent, and ultra-competitive process for clients. Lewis and M&T Realty Capital’s Mark Gould will co-manage the venture.

“Marcus & Millichap Capital Corporation is firmly committed to this partnership,” said Denner. “We are a market leader providing multifamily capital markets solutions and this alliance provides us with another tool to continue to best serve our clients.”
