Civitas Capital Group ("Civitas"), a leading independent specialty asset management and financial services firm, and Atlantic Hotels Group ("Atlantic"), an experienced hotel developer, owner, and operator, have closed on the acquisition of the 93-room TownePlace Suites in Waco, Texas. Atlantic Hotels Group, with which Civitas has executed more than $100 million of hotel development transactions, becomes the hotel's management company.

The TownePlace Suites hotel is in Legends Crossing, one of the fastest-developing areas of Waco. Legends Crossing is a 150-acre mixed use development next to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Hillcrest, less than a 10-minute drive from Baylor University, downtown Waco, and the famous Magnolia Market.

The TownePlace Suites opened in 2016 with 822 feet square feet of meeting space, outdoor pool, fitness center, and business center.

"TownePlace Suites by Marriott was recently named one of the 120 most-trusted U.S. brands, so of course we're excited at the acquisition," said Caroline Perel, managing director for Civitas. "The Waco market is booming now. It's equidistant from Dallas and Austin, and this property is at I-35 and Highway 6 — perfectly situated to capitalize on the 20 percent increase in travel spending Waco has seen since 2010."

Civitas's Lodging team has developed and renovated projects totaling over $1.5 billion, with an expertise that spans the breadth of industry sub-specialties, including the acquisition, development, financing, strategic positioning and branding, asset management, and disposition of hotels. Atlantic Hotels Group is a hotel developer and operator with extensive experience in the Texas hotel market. It currently manages seven hotels and has eight hotels under development.

This is the second phase of Civitas and Atlantic's plan to acquire two existing select-service hotels in Waco: the 120-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites, and the adjacent property TownePlace Suites. The two hotels were managed by different operators, and both are now managed by Atlantic Hotels Group.

"Our ongoing partnership with Civitas Capital has yielded excellent results for investors and travelers alike," says Perry Molubhoy, CEO of Atlantic Hotels Group. "We are delighted to expand our association with Civitas in a burgeoning Texas market like Waco, and we look forward to growing that partnership in the future."
