JLL Reports Phoenix, AZ Industrial Market Ready for Rebound

Mark Hertzberg
PHOENIX, AZ – After a long summer lull, the Phoenix industrial market is ready for a rebound that will not only fill its large blocks of available space but also continue the momentum generated by small- and mid-size users alike, says JLL’s Q3 Phoenix Industrial Report.

According to JLL, the Valley absorbed 680,434 square feet of industrial space during the third quarter, bringing year-to-date absorption up to 5.6 million square feet.

“We’ve filled in a lot of our vacancies with users in the 40,000 to 80,000-square-foot range who are either relocating or expanding,” said JLL Managing Director Marc Hertzberg.

“These transactions don’t make the kind of splash that a big deal might, but collectively they’ve brought us out of one of the worst vacancy scenarios in the country and they’re teeing Phoenix up for a much more balanced recovery.

“ Our next benchmark needs to be the attraction of large corporate users who can take down Phoenix’s 200,000-, 300,000- and 500,000-square-foot blocks that are built and waiting.”

South Loop Luxury by Related Enters Final Phase of Sales as Related Midwest continues to lead rebirth of Chicago’s condo market

Curt Bailey
CHICAGO, IL – A year and a half after relaunching sales at South Loop Luxury by Related, a collection of 500 condominiums across three towers in the South Loop, Related Midwest announced it has sold 400 units in just over 18 months, with only 100 of the original 500 residences remaining.

South Loop Luxury by Related represents three previously-stalled condo buildings that Related Midwest reimagined in 2013, when Chicago’s condo market was showing few signs of recovery.

As a result of the overwhelmingly positive response from buyers, Related Midwest has released an assortment of previously reserved units across the collection, which comprises The Grant, Adler Place and Harbor View – all immediately west of Chicago’s famed Museum Campus.

The newly released residences include a mix of standard units, as well as townhomes, penthouses, and two 4,000-square-foot “white box” units.

“When we launched South Loop Luxury by Related in 2013, we saw a unique opportunity to lead the charge in rejuvenating Chicago’s condo market,” said Curt Bailey, president of Related Midwest.

“Since starting sales last year, when the units accounted for nearly half of downtown Chicago’s unsold condo inventory, we’ve been able to significantly boost values in the South Loop.”

Avison Young completes $7.8-million sale of Mission Health Center in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Dan Vittone

 Irvine, CA – Avison Young, the world’s fastest-growing commercial real estate services firm, announced it has completed the $7.8-million sale of Mission Health Center, a 23,289-square-foot (sf) medical office building in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.

Avison Young Principals Dan Vittone and Alan Pekarcik, based in the company’s Irvine office, represented the buyer, Cypress West Realty Partners, LLC as well as the undisclosed seller.

The two-story building was 77% leased to six medical and dental clients at close of escrow. The largest tenant, Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center, occupies 34% of the building.

 Built in 2001 and situated on 1.57 acres, Mission Health Center is located at 22032 El Paseo in the affluent submarket of Rancho Santa Margarita in south Orange County.

The property is within the heart of the Rancho Santa Margarita Town Center, an approximate 29-acre power retail center, located at the intersection of the 241 Toll Road and Santa Margarita Parkway. The center offers a diversity of restaurants, stores, banks and other retail amenities.

Alan Pekarcik

“The Affordable Care Act, along with policy changes and demographic shifts, stand to boost demand for medical office space,” comments Vittone.

“The push into communities has given way to development of ambulatory surgery centers, stand-alone emergency departments and multi-tenant properties housing physician offices like Mission Health Center.”

Vittone also noted that the Mission Health Center provided the buyer with the security of investing in a well-located building with a strong, long-term tenant base as well as the ability to add value through the lease-up of vacant space.

“As the healthcare segment grows, medical office sales accelerated by roughly 10% in 2013 on a national basis,” adds Pekarcik.

Voit Selected to Manage and Reposition Two Million-SF Industrial Portfolio in Reno, NV

Rob Cord
RENO, NV – The Reno office of Voit Real Estate Services has been selected by  Northwestern Mutual to provide property management and repositioning services for two portfolios totaling more than two million square feet in Reno, Nev. 

Voit was awarded the contract after a competitive search conducted by the property owner, according to Rob Cord, Managing Director of Voit Real Estate Services.

“It is simple, today’s owners are seeking a lot more than complex analysis, reporting, in-house IT services, systems integration and banking relationships,” explains Cord. 

“They need managers to perform; managers who are able to do what they commit to do and deliver the vision for the future.”

 Cord continues, “At Voit, we act as a surrogate owner in our approach to third-party management and combine a full spectrum of services that allow us to make adjustments and advise ownership on what needs to take place to maximize an investment’s performance.”

Carole Brill
The Reno portfolio is comprised of the 1.3 million square-foot Sparks Industrial Portfolio, which encompasses 13 buildings and is currently 89 percent occupied; as well as the 719,419 square-foot South Center Industrial Park, made up of two buildings that are currently 98 percent occupied.

According to Voit, the portfolio is being repositioned to create a sense-of-place and managed to build a community with in the park’s tenants with exterior and vacant suite improvements, which will make the properties more competitive within their various submarkets. 

The improvements, which are well underway, include paving, a full redesign of the exterior of each building, including new paint, signage, and new landscaping throughout.

Voit’s Reno Real Estate Management Services team will be led by Carole Brill, Senior Real Estate Manager, and Ross Tolbert, Director of Operations. Voit will be working closely in partnership with Mike Nevis of NAI Alliance, who is managing the leasing of the portfolio.

“In the first 30 days we met with each tenant in order to ensure their individual needs were being met,” notes Cord.  “As we communicate with each tenant, we work toward the primary goal of creating the most beneficial place for their business looking into the next decade.”

Ross Tolbert
Cord notes that the portfolio repositioning is already underway.  The project work-out facility is being renovated, the park areas are being revived, and drive-by security has commenced, ensuring the safety of tenants and their equipment, which together begin to build the sense-of-place for our tenants, according to Cord.

According to Cord, Voit’s new assignment is well-aligned with an increasing trend of tenant demand in Reno.

“Reno continues to position itself as a growing regional industrial and warehouse market with excellent potential for future development,” says Cord. 

“For example, Nevada recently beat out a five state bidding to bring Tesla Motor’s gigafactory business to this market.”

Tesla will be building a five million square-foot factory to produce its vehicle batteries and charging stations, all of which will be used throughout the U.S. and various international locations, according to Cord.
For more information on these properties, call Voit’s Reno office at (775) 356-5300.
