JLL Income Property Trust Acquires Newly Constructed North Tampa Surgery Center

JLL Income Property Trust | December 15, 2021

JLL_Income_Property
JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX) with more than $5.5 billion in portfolio assets, today announced the acquisition of North Tampa Surgery Center, a 13,000-square-foot, newly constructed medical office building in Odessa, Florida. The property is 100 percent leased on a long-term basis to Comprehensive Outpatient Joint and Spine Institute Center. The purchase price was approximately $8.5 million.

"Within the office sector, our priority investments are healthcare-oriented, focusing on medical office and life science properties, In an uncertain environment for traditional multi-tenant office properties, these two healthcare-oriented sectors stand out for their lower vacancy rates, healthy net absorption and balanced new supply due to significant barriers to entry. These factors also lead to higher tenant retention, even during periods of weakness within traditional office market environments."

-Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust.

This acquisition increases JLL Income Property Trust's healthcare allocation to nine properties totaling more than 925,000 square feet, valued close to $360 million and representing approximately 7 percent of its overall portfolio.

Swaringen added: "The shift towards outpatient, standalone surgery centers as an alternative to undergoing procedures in traditional hospital settings combined with the continued aging of our population positions medical office buildings as attractive portfolio additions to our stable value, income-oriented portfolio. It also positions the portfolio well to capture current and future demand, ultimately resulting in what we anticipate to be stable occupancy and long term cashflow."

The build-to-suit property, newly constructed this year, comprises three surgery centers and new and innovative technology. The lease term is for 20 years and provides for an average of 2 percent annual rent increases. Located in the northern suburbs of Tampa, Odessa is a low-density but quickly growing community that is within 10 miles of nine hospitals, creating a strong base of potential referrals for North Tampa Surgery Center. LaSalle's Research & Strategy team forecasts the area should continue to see strong population growth and increased healthcare spending.

Titan Development Announces First Speculative Industrial Building at Westpointe40 Business Park in Albuquerque

Titan Development | March 26, 2022

Titan Development is moving forward with its first speculative building at Westpointe40, a business park located at I-40 and 98th Street in Albuquerque. Building 1 is a Class A, institutional-grade facility with 150,574 square feet of space targeted for completion in the second quarter of 2023. Westpointe40 will be ideally located within a one-minute drive of Interstate 40, a major thoroughfare for warehousing and distribution users, and Titan will target these users in addition to light manufacturing companies. Many major cities – including Phoenix, Denver, Las Vegas and Oklahoma City – are within an eight-hour drive of Albuquerque, making the city and Westpointe40 an important hub for commerce. The park is also in close proximity to Interstate 25, Albuquerque International Airport and within close driving distance to most of the city's labor force. Building 1 at Westpointe40 has been designed to accommodate a wide variety of warehousing, distribution, light manufacturing and services users, with a rear-load configuration, 32' clear height, dock-high and grade-level doors and ample trailer parking. The building is designed for users between 40,000 and 150,000 square feet. Wilger Enterprises is the general contractor for the project, GBA is the architect, Tierra West is the civil engineer, and Consensus Planning serves as an entitlement consultant. NAI SunVista's Riley McKee, Alex Pulliam, Jim Wible and Jim Hakeem are currently marketing the property for lease. This building is part of Westpointe40, a master plan business park containing 100 acres of shovel-ready sites. Titan's efforts at Westpointe40 follow its strong successes over the last several years in the Texas markets of Austin and San Antonio where demand is surging. Titan has received strong support and interest from the Albuquerque Regional Economic Alliance (AREA) in exploring options and opportunities to create new jobs for the community. We believe – and our data shows – that Albuquerque is ready for speculative industrial development, and we're already seeing strong interest in the Westpointe40 project from prospective tenants and buyers. Paired with the city's booming residential market and its renewed focus on recruiting non-local businesses and growing local businesses, we anticipate that our industrial park will attract new jobs and employment opportunities for both current residents and newcomers to our great state." Brian Patterson, PE and Senior Vice President at Titan "Titan and our local land partners are excited to bring industrial development to Albuquerque, especially along the critical I-40 corridor," said Sal Perdomo, Director of Acquisitions and Development. "Several major companies already have distribution centers in this area, and as national demand for ecommerce continues to grow – and as private developers as well as the city and state continue to recruit and retain economic base employers – we expect that Westpointe40 will serve as a key southwestern hub for other manufacturers and logistics warehouses looking to expand or relocate their operations." About Titan Development Titan Development is a leading Southwest full-service development and real estate investment firm. Titan has developed 13 million square feet of real estate totaling more than $2.5 billion in project cost since the firm was formed in 1999.
