White Plains, N.Y., investment firm and Denver-based FSB close on $41.25 million purchase of Colorado medical office buildings totaling 317,026 square feet.

                 

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., and DENVER, Jan. 5, 2012 – Seavest Healthcare Properties, a White Plains-based healthcare real estate investment firm, and Fleisher Smyth Brokaw, a Denver-based real estate owner and property manager, have acquired a portfolio of five on-campus medical office buildings (MOBs) in Denver and Littleton, Colo., for $41.25 million. All of the properties are on campuses operated by Centura Health, Colorado’s largest hospital network.

 

 

The portfolio includes three MOBs on Centura’s 368-bed Porter Adventist Hospital campus at 2525 S. Downing St. in Denver and two medical office buildings at its 231-bed Littleton Adventist Hospital campus at 7700 S. Broadway in Littleton for a total of 317,026 square feet.

 

“The Centura portfolio is an excellent opportunity for Seavest to build on its strategy of owning medical office properties on well-performing hospital campuses for leading healthcare systems,” says Jonathan L. Winer, Executive Vice President of Seavest Healthcare Properties. “We plan to implement significant capital improvements in both the aesthetics and building systems that will enhance the value of the properties and provide for a better tenant and patient experience.”

 

The transaction, which closed Dec. 21, includes these multi-tenant properties:

 

Building                                        Address                                     Square Feet

Porter Medical Plaza                      2535 S. Downing St., Denver       76,098

Harvard Park East MOB                  950 E. Harvard Ave., Denver        80,543

Harvard Park West MOB                 850 E. Harvard Ave., Denver        70,394

Arapahoe Medical Park Plaza          7720 S. Broadway, Littleton        63,331

Arapahoe Medical Park Plaza II       7750 S. Broadway, Littleton         26,660

 

The MOBs were acquired by a partnership of Seavest’s investment fund, Seavest Properties III, and an affiliate of FSB. FSB will also serve as the property manager and leasing agent.

 

“This acquisition is an ideal fit for FSB’s long-term medical office investment strategy,” says Michelle Brokaw, CEO of FSB. “We expect to improve operations and ensure that these facilities continue to serve the residents of Denver and Littleton and the surrounding communities at the highest level.”

 

“We believe this is the perfect time to transfer these important assets to an organization with proven capabilities in the ownership of on-campus medical office buildings,” says Randy Haffner, CEO of Centura Health’s Porter Hospital. “The sale enables Centura to dedicate further resources to deliver on our mission of providing quality, accessible and affordable care for the people in our communities.”

 

More than 100 tenants, including hospital clinical services and independent physician groups, are housed in the five buildings, which have a current total occupancy of 88 percent. The two hospitals occupy a total of 28 percent. Porter Adventist Hospital was established in 1930 and Littleton Adventist Hospital has been serving Denver’s south metropolitan market since 1989.

 

Chris Bodnar and Lee Asher with the CBRE Healthcare Capital Markets Group represented Centura Health in the transaction.
