Tides Equities Continues DFW Expansion

The three-community portfolio acquisition encompasses a total of 966 units.

Tides at Whispering Hills


Tides Equities has completed a three-community multifamily portfolio acquisition totaling 966 units in Dallas-Fort Worth. Institutional Property Advisors, a division of Marcus & Millichap, brokered the deal on behalf of the seller, The ValCap Group, also procuring the buyer.

The deal encompassed the 314-unit Belterra and the 220-unit Estancia, both located in Richardson, Texas, together with the 423-unit Solaris community, in Dallas’ Lake Highlands neighborhood. Tides Equities acquired the Dallas asset—to be rebranded as Tides on Leisure—back in September and recently closed on the other two transactions, according to Dallas County records. Both Richardson communities were subjects to $34.6 million acquisition loans, funded by MassMutual, the same source shows.

The purchase of the Richardson assets marks Tides’ 47th acquisition in the greater Dallas area. Belterra will be rebranded as Tides at Whispering Hills, while Estancia will be known as Tides on Lawler East. The new owner plans to invest a combined $12.3 million in renovations and upgrades at the two properties.

IPA’s brokerage team included Senior Vice Presidents Taylor Hill, Joey Tumminello and Michael Ware, along with Executive Managing Directors Drew Kile and Will Balthrope.
