This quarter we reached several milestones at the site. In November, concrete foundations started and in December the mat foundation was poured, and mass excavation and retention were completed. Looking forward, the upcoming project milestones include finishing the slab-on-grade foundation and constructing the podium to grade (ground level). At the end of Q4, we had completed approximately 19% of the total project. The project remains on budget. However, the asset will not be making a distribution this quarter as it remains under construction.
The Waller Creek Development is an opportunity to invest in a curated asset sourced through the Cadre network that is underwritten and co-managed by our repeat, institutional sponsor Kairoi. Waller Creek Development is a ground-up development of a core urban mixed-use property comprising 686k square feet of office space, 352 luxury apartments, 251 hotel guestrooms in Austin, TX.
