 SAN DIEGO, CA – HFF announced that it has secured a $41.25 million construction-to-permanent loan for The Hoag Health Center  –  Irvine, a to-be-built 150,000-square-foot medical office development in Irvine, California.

HFF worked exclusively on behalf of San Diego-based Pacific Medical Buildings (PMB) to secure the 12-year, fixed-rate loan through a correspondent life insurance company.

 The loan is interest-only during the two-year construction period, and the fixed rate was locked over eight months in advance of the loan closing.  HFF is servicing the loan.

                Scheduled for completion in early 2016, The Hoag Health Center – Irvine will consist of three two-story, Class A, 50,000-square-foot ambulatory care centers designed and constructed using sustainable principles and flexible floor plans.

Aldon Cole
 Located at the intersection of Alton Parkway and Sand Canyon Avenue, the property is directly across from Hoag Hospital Irvine, a 154-bed private hospital with inpatient, outpatient and emergency room services, and walking distance to Kaiser Permanente Hospital.  

The Hoag Health Center – Irvine is 100 percent leased to Hoag Hospital. 

Less than one mile from Interstate 405 (San Diego Parkway), the southern Orange County location places the asset less than 2.5 miles from the convergence of Interstate 5 (Santa Ana Freeway) and Interstate 405.

The HFF team was led by director Zach Koucos and senior managing directors Aldon Cole and Tim Wright.  Jake Rohe and Ben Ryan led the transaction for PMB.

”We were targeting a very specific financing product with a long forward-commitment component,” Rohe said.  “HFF was able to deliver exactly what we were looking for to meet our business objectives for this unique project.”

Port 95 Business Center, Dania Beach, FL

Christopher Metzger

 DANIA BEACH, FL - Cushman & Wakefield announced today that is has inked the first lease at the newly-constructed Port 95 Business Center in Dania Beach, Florida.

Executive Director Christopher Metzger, Executive Director Richard Etner, Jr., and Senior Director Christopher Thomson represented Saul Gilinski’s MSG Port 95, LLC in securing a 37,205-square-foot lease with Premier Produce.

Premier Produce is a Pembroke Pines-based food service distributor with a 42-truck fleet servicing retail and institutional clients throughout South Florida. Premier’s occupancy will begin in June 2015.

Port 95 Business Center, located at 2650 SW 36th Street, is a Class A, 229,643-square-foot, state-of-the-art distribution facility.

Richard Etner
The center’s location in the Southeast Broward industrial market provides excellent access to Interstate 95, Interstate 595, Florida’s Turnpike, Interstate 75, and the Sawgrass Expressway.

The building offers abundant loading doors, ESFR fire sprinkler system, energy efficient T–5 warehouse lighting, 32’ ceiling clear height, and and offices built to suit.

In November 2014, Metzger, Etner and Thomson represented developer Bridge Development in the $27 million sale of Port 95 Business Center to MSG Port 95, LLC.

“Premier Produce is the first of what we expect to be many tenants filling the balance of the space at the Port 95 Business Center," said Metzger.

According to Cushman & Wakefield’s Q4 2014 Broward County Marketbeat report, “demand for Broward industrial product continues to outpace supply, compressing cap rates and pushing pricing on what little product becomes available.”

Christopher Thomson
The Southeast Broward submarket has an average warehouse and distribution center rental rate which exceeds the market average by 13 percent, illustrating the allure.

“This submarket remains one of the most desirable in South Florida,” added Metzger. "We believe the demand for new product will remain high.”

Florida Corporate Realty represented Premier Produce.
