Caruso-TPG Partners plans to invest up to $750 million of debt and equity in investments in underperforming properties.
Though Caruso-TPG Partners will not reveal specific O.C. properties at this point, a spokesperson did say the firm is "looking at several possibilities" in the region.
"We believe there will be opportunities in retail real estate in the near term for Caruso-TPG Partners as we bring a combination of capital and experience to acquiring and repositioning underperforming properties," says Rick Caruso, president and CEO of Caruso Affiliated. Caruso will serve as CEO of the new entity.
In addition to The Grove, Caruso Affiliated owns The Americana at Brand, Village at Moorpark and The Promenade at Westlake, among others.
