Fundrise Launches Second Investment Opportunity on H Street: Figure 1
906 H Street NE

Fundrise, the crowdsourced real estate development site, has launched their second public offering at 906 H Street NE (map).

906 H Street NE is a 6,510 square foot, two-story building owned since 2012 by WestMill Capitol Partners (WCP), the development arm of the group behind the Rise companies. WCP plans to find a restaurant or retail tenant for the space, which needs a good bit of renovation. They hope to be finished with construction in the fall of 2014.

Like the last Fundrise project at 1351 H Street NE, DC and Virginia residents can buy into this property for $100 a share; the total offering for Fundrise investors is $350,000, so 3,500 shares are on offer. The remainder of the investment is coming from private sources.

This time around, however, Fundrise is giving investors a hint at the return: they project gaining $180,000 in net income every year, and hope to offer investors a 7 percent annual yield. The costs and full financials are laid out in detail here.

With yesterday’s announcement that the streetcars will be traveling on H Street by the end of the year, it seems like a good time for the Fundrise folks to move forward with their second H Street Corridor project. The site is also across the street from the H Street Connection shopping center, which is slated to be turned into a sizable mixed-use project.

    The development costs for 906 H St look suspect. They've only budgeted $8,500 for permitting? These guys have done work with DCRA before - they must know that's a serious lowball. Also, $25,000 for architecture fees, even if it's just a rehab, seems low. I wouldn't trust these numbers, even if the "Financials" page looks clean.

    So, with the projected ROI would that be $180,000 net income per share invested-along with the 7%? Or would that be the total amount projected in ROI overall-regardless of the amount of shares invested?
