Case Study

Frenchman’s Reef

Deep value-add redevelopment of an iconic Caribbean Resort
  • Fortress acquired the 486-key Frenchman’s Reef Resort in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands
  • The property was built in 1973 and operated until heavily damaged by two hurricanes in 2017
  • We acquired the resort for just $35 million, from a prior owner undergoing corporate liquidity challenges
  • Post-acquisition, we invested $264 million to complete a comprehensive renovation, building upon our prior experience in the Caribbean at the Westin Grand Cayman
  • The resort held its grand opening in January 2024, officially restoring an iconic property back to its place of prominence in the Caribbean

Investment Strategies

Global Opportunistic Real Estate

We acquire turnaround assets across our target verticals. Prior to acquisition, these assets are typically in need of renovation and/or have broken capital structures. After acquisition, we seek to make substantial improvements to generate durable income and attempt to maximize value

US & European Core+ Real Estate

We manage strategies focused on similar product types and themes as our opportunistic strategies, but with a longer-term investment horizon that has the potential to capture more income growth alongside capital appreciation

Japanese Income-Oriented Real Estate

We focus on acquiring long-term leased assets via corporate sale-leaseback transactions, senior housing properties and selective credit investments

Perpetual Public Capital

Fortress owns Consonant Investment Management, which acts as the external manager of Invincible Investment Corporation, the largest hospitality-focused J-REIT
