FCP Enters Phoenix Market With $71.5 Million Multifamily Acquisition

Real Estate Partner Bryson Filbert, Counsel Jeff Mitchell, and Associate Angela Fuccillo represented FCP in a joint venture to acquire the Tides at South Tempe, a 422-unit apartment complex in Tempe, Arizona. The $71.5 million acquisition is the company’s first investment in the Arizona market.
