Twenty-Nine Medical Office Building Portfolio Trades
Healthcare Real Estate Capital (“HRE Capital”) acted as a financial advisor to Hammes Partners (“Hammes”) in its disposition of a 29-building portfolio of medical office buildings (the “Portfolio”).
The 1,226,312 square foot Portfolio features modern, well occupied assets with significant remaining average lease term and is geographically diverse, spanning Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington D.C., Arizona, Texas, Mississippi, and Georgia.
The Portfolio includes on-campus, off-campus, and adjacent-to-campus locations and was transacted subject to assumption of existing debt.
HRE Capital’s Role
On behalf of Hammes, HRE Capital undertook a tailored effort to identify a well-capitalized investor (“Investor”) seeking a substantial and geographically diverse medical office building portfolio and who was positioned to (i) acquire the Portfolio, (ii) take full responsibility for assumption or prepayment of significant existing debt and (iii) close this sizeable transaction on a truncated timeline in the face of a national pandemic complicating diligence.
Leveraging its unmatched relationships in the sector, HRE Capital approached a pool of credible Investors that would allow Hammes to achieve its previously identified goals. With multiple offers in-hand from different types of Investors, Hammes ultimately selected a private equity real estate Investor with extensive experience in the healthcare real estate sector who provided the most attractive offer.
HRE Capital assisted Hammes in navigating the simultaneous completion of buyer diligence, negotiation of purchase and sale agreement, and assumption of existing debt across multiple lenders to successfully achieve a year end closing.
