A Deeper Look at Leitbox, Sixty West, and Triton Pacific
October 16, 2019 | James Sprow | Blue Vault
On October 8, Blue Vault presented a Webinar introducing three companies that sponsor alternative investment programs.
Leitbox Portfolio Partners– a real estate investment company that develops and acquires self-storage (often with mixed-use & retail integration) in primary and secondary markets.
Sixty West– one of America’s most experienced developers of the tax-advantaged real estate industry. The firm focuses on various areas of real estate tax-deferred investing, including low-income housing credits, alternative energy tax credits including solar, and Opportunity Zones.
Triton Pacific– provides unique access to high net worth investors with a focus on income-oriented private equity investments. The firm generally acquires controlling interests in small and mid-size companies where its expertise can enhance value for shareholders.
Leitbox Portfolio Partners
Somewhat unique to the self-storage sector, Leitbox often integrates a Mixed-Use/Retail component to help improve financial outcomes, such as lowering the property’s break-even threshold, while allowing projects to be launched in more desirable, high-barrier to entry neighborhoods.
Leitbox uses a “sharpshooter” approach to developing self-storage projects in locations with high barriers to entry that meet their stringent SiteFinder requirements. They utilize a self-storage prototype, repeatable designs that reduce execution risk and capitalize on their 25-year experience in the retail space.
Leitbox Portfolio Partners Self Storage Fund I, LLC is a Reg. D Private Placement, with a targeted offering amount of $25 million, available to accredited investors with a minimum investment of $50,000. The Company intends to maximize exit valuations, with a targeted average hold period of two to three years after completion but does not have a firm liquidation date.
Since 2008, Sixty West has raised in excess of $2.6 billion of investment capital. These funds have been invested in real estate projects valued at over $3.5 billion located in 42 states. Sixty West is a leader in the use of real estate tax-advantaged strategies across a range of programs, including:
• Renewable Energy
• Low Income Housing Tax Credits
• Historic, Film and State Tax Credits
• Historic Preservation
• Conservation Utilization
• Opportunity Zones
Sixty West has completed over 80 Renewable Energy projects and raised over $180 million of investor equity for those projects since 2012. The Company has participated in more than $1 billion in tax credit equity in over $2 billion of low-income housing projects in 26 states, resulting in over 3,000 multi-family units.
Sixty West is raising funds for Opportunity Zone projects that the firm has identified, enabling tax benefits and providing potentially superior investment returns. One example is a multi-use project in the Old Fourth Ward of Atlanta, an offering of up to $35 million, to develop office, hotel and retail space, currently under construction.
Triton Pacific Capital Partners, LLC
Triton Pacific is a middle market focused private equity firm headquartered in Los Angeles, CA. Founded in 2001, Triton Pacific brings demonstrated expertise in areas including operations, capital markets, mergers & acquisitions, strategic planning, intellectual property, and technology.
The firm generally acquires controlling interests in small and mid-size companies where its expertise can enhance value for shareholders.

TP Flexible Income Fund (“FLEX”) is a publicly registered non-traded business development company (“BDC”) and is the surviving entity of a merger between Pathway Capital Opportunity Fund, Inc. and Triton Pacific Investment Corporation, Inc., which was completed on March 31, 2019.
