EB-5 Investors have a wide range of projects to choose from in different industries and locations; however, poor projects could jeopardize your family's investment and application. CARC's principals have drawn on their wealth of experience and successful track records to select projects which combine proven market strategies, government agencies' support, and the safety and security that investors demand from EB-5 projects. With CARC, investors and their families can feel confident in their investment.
Our projects have been designed down to the smallest details with our market in mind. Drawing on our vast and successful experience in Louisiana real estate, our projects invite sophisticated residents and exceptional tenants who want to be in the center of the action, while having a peaceful retreat to call home.
In the heart of downtown New Orleans, the largest and most vibrant city in Louisiana, the Belmont Residences will be an expansion of our affiliate's a highly-successful residential project known as "925 Common", which was developed by and is owned by the principals of CARC. Steps away from New Orleans' most exciting attractions, and just one block outside of the famous "French Quarter", the 108 fully-leased apartments currently built are already among the most exclusive and desirable residential addresses in the city. Adding 91 new apartments, as well as new amenities such as a rooftop pool and deck, and in-building dining options, will make it a residential experience like no other in New Orleans.
Located in the center of Baton Rouge, the capital and second-largest city in Louisiana, River House will be a new mixed-use development including residences, as well as office and retail space. Anchored by Baton Rouge's two primary employment centers – Louisiana State University and the Central Business District (CBD) – its unique work/live/play environment will bring home, office, and retail together in one central location. River House will welcome graduate students, professors, university staff, government workers, and professionals from throughout the city who seek convenience, simplicity, and comfort.
The best team, while important, is not enough to ensure the success of an EB-5 investment. Our two projects, The Belmont Residences, in New Orleans; and River House, in Baton Rouge have government and community support, risk-minimizing external financing mechanisms, and an experienced management team supporting them. These two projects will cost about USD $50 million and should create approximately 200 jobs. Both developments qualify for TEA status and therefore a reduced USD $500,000 investment, and have been designed for optimal compatibility with the EB-5 Program.
CARC's projects are:
Building on Fundamentals – CARC's developments are in the most desirable areas of their economically-vibrant cities, and will have the amenities that their refined clientele expect.
