Dear Mr. Killoy:
 
This letter is submitted on behalf of GK Investment Property Holdings II, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Issuer”), in response to comments received from the staff of the Division of Corporation Finance (the “Staff”) of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) in a letter (the “Comment Letter”) dated November 21, 2019 with respect to the Issuer’s Offering Statement on Form 1-A (File No. 024-11074) filed with the Commission on November 8, 2019 (the “Offering Statement”). This letter is being submitted contemporaneously with the filing of the second amendment of the Offering Statement (the “Second Amendment”) containing changes made in response to the Staff’s comments and for the purpose of updating and revising certain information in the Offering Statement. Certain capitalized terms set forth in this letter are used as defined in the Second Amendment to the Offering Statement.
 
For ease of reference, each Staff comment contained in the Comment Letter is reprinted below in bold, numbered to correspond with the paragraph numbers assigned in the Comment Letter, and is followed by the corresponding response of the Issuer.
 
For the Staff’s ease of review, we have also provided two clean copies of the Second Amendment to the Offering Statement, along with two redlines marked against the First Amendment of the Offering Statement.

1.            
We note Section 10.12 of your LLC Agreement contains provisions shifting the costs of fees to the non-prevailing party. Please expand your disclosure in the Offering Circular to describe the types of actions subject to fee-shifting, the level of recovery required by the plaintiff to avoid payment, who is subject to the provision and who would be allowed to recover. Additionally, please add risk factor disclosure regarding how the provision could discourage shareholder lawsuits that might otherwise benefit the company and its shareholders. Please also clarify if you intend to apply the fee-shifting provision to potential federal securities law claims in the current offering.
 
Issuer’s Response: In response to the Staff’s comment, the investors of the Offering pursuant to this Offering Statement will be Bondholders of the Issuer instead of members of the Issuer, thus they will not be bound by the LLC Agreement and will not be subject to the fee-shifting provisions of Section 10.12 thereof. Therefore, the Issuer respectfully believes that the expansion of disclosure on Section 10.12 of the LLC Agreement regarding provisions shifting the costs of fees to the non-prevailing party and the addition of an additional risk factor regarding such provisions would not be material information to investors in this Offering.
 
2.            
We also note Section 10.12 of the LLC Agreement waives a trial by jury. Please describe this provision in the Offering Circular and disclose if this applies to actions arising under the federal securities laws. Please include risk factor disclosure regarding waiver of jury trial.
 
Issuer’s Response: In response to the Staff’s comment, the investors of the Offering pursuant to this Offering Statement will be Bondholders of the Issuer instead of members of the Issuer, thus they will have not be bound by the LLC Agreement and will not be subject to the waiver of trial by jury contained in Section 10.12 thereof. Therefore, the Issuer respectfully believes that the expansion of disclosure on Section 10.12 of the LLC Agreement regarding provisions waiving a trial by jury and the addition of an additional risk factor regarding such provisions would not be material information to investors in this Offering.
