Morgan Johnson Commerce Park Bradenton

Xenia Management Corporation, a Clearwater-based real estate management services firm operating throughout the Southeast, has purchased an 11.45-acre mixed-use property at 5520-5540 State Road 64 E in Bradenton for $11.1 million.

The property, Morgan Johnson Commerce Park, is a two-building Class A business park with 40,184 square feet and excess land approved for up to 37,000 square feet of additional mixed-use development. Based on existing square footage, the sales price translated to approximately $276 per square foot.

Paul Carr, Todd Tolbert and Lori Hellstrom of Colliers represented the seller, Morgan Johnson Commerce Park, LLC, a privately held investment group affiliated with New Market Strategies, LLC of Stuart, Fla., in the transaction. The buyer was self-represented.

Built in 2009 and expanded in 2012, Morgan Johnson Commerce Park features a single-story medical office building and a two-story office building, which are 100% leased to four tenants. Two departments of the U.S. government (Veteran’s Affairs and Social Security Administration) comprise 72% of the property’s existing square footage.

“Given the dynamics of the location, stabilized income stream and development upside potential, the property generated significant interest and multiple competitive offers,” said Paul Carr, Executive Managing Director, Investment Services for Colliers. “It was a great fit for this buyer because it further grows their portfolio of U.S. government-occupied properties while satisfying a 1031-exchange requirement.”

Xenia Management Corporation owns and manages over 1 million square feet of commercial space throughout the Southeast. The firm is a preferred developer for the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) and specializes in working with government agencies, as well as private office, retail, industrial and healthcare entities.

The property sits along S.R. 64, less than a mile from Interstate 75, offering easy accessibility for employees and consumers in the surrounding MSA. It also features a notably high surface parking ratio of approximately 7.2 spaces per 1,000 square feet.

“In addition to the strength of the long-term tenants already in place, the park’s undeveloped parcels offer a competitive advantage to meet almost all tenant demand in the market for well-located office, medical and/or high-traffic retail space,” Carr said.

2828 S. Seacrest Boulevard

Easton & Associates advised ShareMD, a healthcare real estate and physician practice solution company, on the value-add acquisition of a 31,747-square-foot medical office building in Boynton Beach, Florida. ShareMD paid $6.45 million in the off-market deal that closed May 21. The seller was Redfearn Capital.

The two-story building, located at 2828 S. Seacrest Boulevard, across the street from Bethesda Hospital East, is approximately 84% occupied. It is anchored by Orthopaedic Surgery Associates. Other key tenants include an imaging center, rehab center and an OBGYN clinic.

“Boynton Beach’s robust population growth and the building’s proximity to a major hospital owned by Baptist Health, fits perfectly with ShareMD’s investment strategy to acquire on-campus medical office assets in South Florida,” said LaBreche, who represents ShareMD throughout Florida. “By investing capital to modernize the building, my client hopes to improve occupancy and drive rent growth over time.”

Alpharetta, Georgia-based ShareMD has been making a big push into Florida to roll out its co-working medical suite concept which is already up and running in five Southern California locations. The company builds out clinical space for doctors and other medical professionals and then leases it by the half-day, day, week or month—allowing physicians to expand their geographic reach and save money by not being tied into long-term rents.

The Boynton Beach transaction represents the seventh medical building acquired by ShareMD in the past 20 months and increases its portfolio to 13 properties and over a million square feet of owned healthcare assets in Florida and California.

JLL Capital Markets closed the $64 million sale of a five-property seniors housing portfolio with properties located throughout Southeast Florida.

JLL represented an undisclosed seller to complete the sale to the buyer, an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group LLC. JLL is also working on the buyer’s behalf to secure the acquisition financing. All properties are managed by Florida-based Sonata Senior Living, who has operated the communities for more than three years and will continue to manage the properties going forward.

Pete Stone, Managing Director at Fortress Investment Group, says, “We are excited about working with Stuart Beebe and the talented management team at Sonata on the Southeast Florida portfolio. We believe the portfolio is well positioned to benefit from the strong demographic trends in South Florida particularly from the accelerating trend of migration of seniors to Palm Beach county.”

The portfolio includes five Sonata properties totaling 444 units in Delray Beach (80 units), Boynton Beach (92 units), Boca Raton (74 units), Coconut Creek (94 units) and Vero Beach (104 units).

All properties were well-maintained by the previous owner, undergoing over $13 million in capital expenditures over the past four years, including exterior building improvements, furnishing upgrades, new flooring, roof repair, conversions from assisted living to memory care and new generators to comply with Florida regulations.
