CMB’s Group 25 Investor Receives Their First I-829 Petition Approval

DALLAS, Feb. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- We’re excited to announce that CMB Regional Centers’ (CMB) Group 25 just received its first I-829 approval! This is a life changing milestone for the CMB limited partner that was approved. It is also great news for other investors in this partnership, as it means the USCIS determined that the Group 25 investment generated the requisite number of jobs to satisfy the requirements of the EB-5 program for each of the investors.

The I-829 petition is the final step in the immigration process for EB-5 investors. An approval removes all EB-5 conditions and grants permanent U.S. residence to the petitioner and their immediate family. Once permanent residence is achieved, the investor can either choose to pursue American citizenship, or complete a simple green card renewal every 10 years.

Group 25 included 52 EB-5 investors from China, the Dominican Republic, Hong Kong, India, Russia, and South Korea. The partnership made a loan of $26 million to Stillwater Capital Partners (“Stillwater”) to partially finance the construction of three residential developments in Texas:

The Peak Street Townhomes is a 180 unit luxury townhome community located just north of downtown Dallas.

The Hyde Park Apartment Homes are located in Austin, TX. The complex includes 210 modern apartment units on a 2.4 acre site.

The Alamo Heights Apartment Homes include 107 units on a 4.28 acre site in San Antonio, TX.

Group 25 opened for subscription in 2014 and was the first collaboration between Stillwater and CMB Regional Centers. The loans Group 25 extended to finance these projects were fully repaid in 2020, and the partnership has since returned funds to eligible EB-5 investors.

Founded in 2006, Stillwater is a fully integrated, private real estate company with expertise in sourcing, underwriting, developing, acquiring and managing a vast spectrum of real estate products. Although Stillwater has experience across all real estate products, their primary focus is on residential developments, both single-family and multifamily projects.
