Marcus & Millichap Arranges $3 million sale of Indian River Medical Office & Apartments in Vero Beach, FL

Krone Weidler
VERO BEACH, FL  – Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), a leading commercial real estate investment services firm with offices throughout the United States and Canada, has announced the sale of Indian River Medical Office & Apartments, a 23,577-square foot mixed-use property located in Vero Beach, Fla., according to Grant Fitzgerald, sales manager of the firm’s Tampa office. The asset sold for $3,075,000.

Grant Fitzgerald
Jason Hague, Krone Weidler, L.J. Tsunis, Adam Podbelski and Ned Roberts, CCIM, investment specialists in Marcus & Millichap’s Tampa office, had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a limited partnership out of Ohio.  
The buyer, a private investor, was also secured and represented by the same brokers.
“This is one of the most unique assets our team has marketed in some time,” said L.J. Tsunis. “It’s rare you see a mixed-use type property outside of a major MSA or CBD (Central Business District). 

Jason Hague

"Through our multi-phased and collaborative approach to marketing this property, which included potential investors in medical office as well as apartments nationwide, we were able to generate multiple-offers and significant proceeds to the seller in a short period of ownership. 
 “This deal was a true testament to the collaboration that Marcus & Millichap is able to offer to their clients,” said Hague.  
“Despite the fact that Krone and L.J. specialize in Medical Office and Assisted Living while my team focuses on Multifamily, we were both able to bring a unique aspect of cross-platform marketing to the table which ultimately enabled us to procure the perfect buyer for such a unique deal.” 

L.J. Tsunis
Indian River Medical Office & Apartments is located at 1485 37th Street in Vero Beach, Fla., and consists of a two-story medical office and apartment building. 
The building was completed in 1984 and contains first floor medical office space and 14 second floor apartments, with a total rentable square footage of 23,580. 
The first floor is designed with up to 13 individual office suites, with four tenants currently occupying these spaces, occupancy is presently 100%.  

Adam Podbelski
“The property sits adjacent to Indian River Hospital, which was just taken over by The Cleveland Clinic. Due to this property’s location, and the significant investment expected by the hospital in the years to come, this property will continue to enjoy stable returns for the buyer,” said Tsunis.

There are 14 residential apartments on the second floor totaling 11,792 square feet of rentable building area in size. There is one, one-bedroom apartment and one, three-bedroom apartment, with the other 12 units all containing two-bedrooms and 1.5-bathrooms. They are currently 100% occupied. 

Ned Roberts
“The seller was able to implement a value-add strategy with the apartments by inputting partial upgrades to the units. The buyer will be able to continue these upgrades and continue to raise rents,” added Tsunis.

Lee & Associates Selects Josh Simon as President of New Washington, DC/Northern Virgina Regiona Office

Josh Simon
WASHINGTON, DC – Lee & Associates, the largest broker-owned commercial real estate firm in North America with more than 60 full-time offices, has named Josh Simon, SIOR, as President of its new Washington, D.C./Northern Virginia regional office. 

Simon, formerly Partner at NAI KLNB and based in Tysons Corner, Virginia, brings more than twelve years of diversified commercial real estate brokerage experience to this new position. 

Last December, Lee & Associates announced its intentions to establish a presence in the Nation’s Capital “within two years, timed with the ability to identify appropriate leadership to oversee operations and recruit talent.” 

Teaming with Simon to open the new office will be Pierce Kruetzer, also formerly with NAI KLNB, as a Principal.
“This is a career-defining opportunity to leverage my knowledge of the regional real estate marketplace and extensive business relationships with the resources of an international brokerage platform,” stated  Simon. 

“A constant refrain expressed by owners and investors is the lack of personalized service received from brokerage firms that have experienced continual consolidation and growth. A negative byproduct of this expansion is a disconnection on the local level where personal relationships and trust mean everything to achieve success. 

Pierce Kruetzer
"This has translated to a lack of passion and enthusiasm as new ownership, and the decision-making and protocols that come with it, move farther away from the individual offices. 

"Lee & Associates employs a collaborative and empowering business model and we fully intend to compete with every national player in the Washington, D.C. area, particularly in the middle market space.”                   
The new Washington, D.C./Northern Virginia office plans to execute an aggressive growth strategy targeting business opportunities and seasoned brokerage professionals experienced in office landlord representation, office tenant representation, retail Leasing, industrial leasing, debt services and investment sales. 

According to Simon, he is currently engaged in discussions to recruit additional talent and expects to “grow by eight to ten brokers in a relatively short timeframe.”


JLL closes $35.5 million sale of 313,650-SF industrial facility in Charleston, NC

313,650-SF, newly delivered, state-of-the-art distribution and light assembly facility that is a build-to-suit for Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) in Charleston, SC

CHARLOTTE, NC – JLL announces the $35.5 million sale of a 313,650-square-foot, newly delivered, state-of-the-art distribution and light assembly facility that is a build-to-suit for Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) in Charleston, South Carolina.

Patrick Nally
JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, a joint venture between North Signal Capital and a fund managed by Westport Capital Partners LLC. Stockbridge purchased the asset.

The SAIC build-to-suit is 100% leased on a triple-net basis to SAIC, one of the U.S. government’s top defense contractors.

 Delivered in June 2019, the facility features a minimum 32-foot clear height, ESFR sprinkler system, a fully conditioned warehouse and tilt-up concrete construction with an attractive glass-lined facade. 

Located at 7413 Magi Road, the building is adjacent to the Naval Space and Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) campus, one of SAIC’s longstanding federal customers. 

Situated on 23.09 acres at 7413 Magi Road, the facility is in Hanahan, a northern Charleston suburb, and situated within North Pointe Commerce Park, a master-planned industrial park that is strategically positioned to house defense, manufacturing and logistics-oriented tenants. 

Chris Norvell

The building is equidistant to both Interstates 26 and 526 and proximate to the Port of Charleston, the CSX/Norfolk Southern Intermodal Yard and the Charleston International Airport.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller consisted of director Patrick Nally, senior managing director Chris Norvell and associate Mike Massardo.

“This transaction represented an opportunity to acquire a true trophy-quality, core industrial asset in the land constrained Hanahan/North Rhett submarket,” Nally said. 

“This submarket – and specifically North Pointe Commerce Park – has displayed incredible fundamentals over recent years and has established itself to be one of the preeminent defense- and port-related industrial locations in the region. 

"Charleston possesses a dynamic array of industrial demand drivers, and we continue to see institutional investors view the market favorably for its long-term growth potential.”

Integrated CBD bringing first U.S. manufacturing location and 100 jobs to Phoenix, AZ

Former Sam's Club site, now a new manufacturing facility
in Phoenix, AZ for Institutional CBD oil
 and isolate supplier Integrated CBD

Andrew Medley
PHOENIX, AZ, July 17, 2019 – Institutional CBD oil and isolate supplier Integrated CBD has announced it will open its first U.S. manufacturing location and hire approximately 100 employees at HUB 317, a 225,157-square-foot project that in 2018 was renovated from a former Sam’s Club into a state-of-the-art, Class A, freeway visible flex industrial campus.

 Integrated CBD will use its new space at HUB 317 for CBD oil extraction, processing, custom formulating and research and development.

The facility is intended to provide industrial hemp-derived CBD ingredients and bespoke formulations to Fortune 500 customers in the cosmetic, supplement, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries.

Steve Larsen
The new facility is expected to generate more than 100 new jobs including high-skilled and high-paid senior level management, sales and research and development positions.

 The company is scheduled to take occupancy at HUB 317 during the fourth quarter of 2019.

 JLL Managing Director Andrew Medley and Executive Vice President Steve Larsen represented Integrated CBD. 

Ken McQueen, Chris McClurg and Brian Payne represented the owner and developer, a joint venture between Denver-based DPC Companies and Confluent Development.

“This facility marks a major milestone in this new industry,” said Jeff Dreyer, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of Integrated CBD. “Our location at HUB 317 will be largest throughput and most efficient CBD oil extraction plant in the United States.”

Ken McQueen
HUB 317 is located on 12 acres at 317 S. 48th St. in Phoenix, minutes from the Loop 202 and 143 freeways and Sky Harbor International Airport. 

The project combines the renovation of a 115,286-square-foot former Sam’s Club building with 109,645 square feet of new tilt-up industrial construction to create a fully modernized flex industrial campus.

Features of the new development include renovated office, warehouse/distribution and mezzanine space with 24- to 32-foot clear height, truckwell, grade-level and dock high loading options, 290 parking stalls and a 3,000 Amps/277-480 volt power supply.

Chris McClurg

The property’s location just east of State Route 143 and just west of the Loop 202 will give Integrated CBD exceptional access to major transportation corridors as well as freeway visibility with building and freeway monument signage opportunities.

 “HUB 317 is an ideal property for Integrated CBD, giving them a centralized and efficient supply chain location and brand new, state-of-the-art industrial space that not only provides extensive power but is also scalable to accommodate the company’s strong projected growth,” said Medley.

Jeff Dreyer
 HUB 317 is the first development partnership in the Phoenix industrial market between Colorado-based DPC Companies and Confluent Development

Graycor Construction Company was the general contractor and Ware Malcomb was the project architect.
