Safehold Closes Four Ground Leases for Affordable Multifamily Assets

NEW YORK, July 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Safehold Inc. (NYSE: SAFE), the creator and leader of the modern ground lease industry, has closed on ground leases to facilitate the ground-up development of four affordable housing communities in Northern California. The low-income tax credit developments total 781 units across four locations: three in San Jose and one in Concord, California. The projects will be built by The Pacific Companies, a prolific and highly experienced developer of affordable housing throughout the Western United States.

“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with The Pacific Companies, and to play a role in meeting the significant unmet demand for affordable housing,” said Safehold’s EVP, Head of Investments Steve Wylder. “We have quickly expanded our presence in the affordable housing space, and are finding that our long-term, low-cost ground lease capital can help to fill gaps, drive a lower cost of capital, and help high-quality projects like these move forward.”

Safehold closed a total of six ground lease transactions during the second quarter of 2024.

“We have closed $6.5 billion of ground lease investments to date and are encouraged by recent dialogue with the market,” added Safehold’s Chief Investment Officer Tim Doherty. “We will continue to use our strong balance sheet to scale our platform across the country, with the ability to innovate and meet market and client needs.”
