Newmark announces the sale, equity placement and financing of a 12-property, 352,981-square-foot multi-state medical office building portfolio. Senior Managing Director Jay Miele, Executive Managing Director Ben Appel and Senior Managing Directors Michael Greeley and John Nero of Newmark’s Healthcare Capital Markets group, in cooperation with local licensees, represented the seller in the transaction. Newmark Associates Adam Goss and Ron Ott provided financial analysis.
“We were thrilled to have advised our client on the sale of the portfolio, procurement of the institutional joint venture and structuring of the debt facility for this acquisition,” said Miele. “The assets combine to offer income durability from long-term leases for nearly half of the portfolio, coupled with near-term growth opportunities stemming from accretive leasing to existing and new tenants in markets with strong underlying and long-term fundamentals.”
The 12-building portfolio was acquired by Rendina Healthcare Real Estate, in joint venture with Artemis Real Estate Partners. Newmark advised on the formation of the joint venture in 2021 which was seeded with a portfolio of six medical office buildings that were developed and acquired by Rendina. “We were excited to work with Rendina and Artemis as they continue to aggregate strategic assets for their joint venture,” said Appel. “In a turbulent capital markets environment, we applaud the steadfast diligence and commitment of Rendina, Artemis and its lender to achieve this successful closing.”
Utilized for high acuity services, the collection of best-in-class assets spans eight states – Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Virginia – and is 96% occupied. The portfolio boasts attractive investment fundamentals including ten of the 12 assets located in Certificate of Need states, a weighted average remaining lease term of 6.6 years and average annual rental rate increases of 2.20%. At net operating income per occupied square foot of approximately $21 NNN, average rents across the portfolio are approximately 10% below national portfolio averages traded over the last five years. More than half of leased space is occupied by leading health systems, credit tenants and dominant physician networks.
In October, Newmark also facilitated the sale of a five-property medical office portfolio on behalf of the seller.
