135,000 SF office and flex property marks the Miami-based Adler Real Estate Fundâ€™s second Nashville-area acquisition.
Online PR News – 28-September-2012 – Miami, FL – A joint venture between the Adler Real Estate Fund and Kawa Capital Management has purchased the Greenbriar Business Park in Nashville, Tennessee. The institutional-quality property includes 135,653 square feet of office and flex space located at 2525 Perimeter Place Drive in Nashvilleâ€™s Airport North submarket. With an 88 percent occupancy rate and a host of strong credit tenants, the asset offers strong cash flow and has outperformed the greater Nashville office market for the past five years. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The joint venture acquired Greenbriar Business Park from KBS REIT I, a public non-listed REIT. CBRE brokers Steve Preston and Douglass Johnson represented KBS REIT I in the transaction. HFFâ€™s Miami office helped the Adler Real Estate Fund secure a primary mortgage with favorable terms from SunTrust Bank.
â€śWith a strong cap rate, favorable financing, stable cash flow in-place, and a diverse tenant mix, sound investment fundamentals prompted our decision to add Greenbriar Business Park to the Adler Real Estate Fundâ€™s portfolio,â€ť said Matthew L. Adler, the Adler Real Estate Fundâ€™s Chief Investment Officer. â€śWe plan to maximize the assetâ€™s value over the coming years through growth in occupancy and by maintaining a satisfied tenant base resulting from our property management capabilities.â€ť
The Adler Real Estate Fund is a closed-end discretionary fund managed by Adler Group, one of Floridaâ€™s largest commercial real estate firms. The Fund encompasses more than 4.5 million square feet of office, industrial and flex space and accounting for more than $460 million in transactions. The Greenbriar Business Park acquisition follows the Fundâ€™s first Nashville-area investment: the January 2011 purchase of the Parklane Building, a 110,000 square foot office building. The Fund primarily targets multi-tenant, management-intensive office and industrial properties in growing U.S. markets. Greenbriar Business Park becomes the Fundâ€™s eighth asset.
â€śOur purchase of the Parklane Building last year has been one of the Fundâ€™s best performing investments to date, and we are optimistic that Greenbriar Business Park will follow that trajectory,â€ť added Mr. Adler. â€śWe will maintain our focus on multi-tenant properties in U.S. markets that are experiencing economic growth as we conclude the deployment of capital through Fund one and launch our next capital raise. These acquisitions are consistent with that investment philosophy, with Nashville being among the countryâ€™s fastest-growing metropolitan areas and the regionâ€™s unemployment rate outperforming the nation.â€ť
Current tenants at Greenbriar Business Park include Honeywell International (NYSE: HON), Diebold (NYSE: DBD), Dataium, which provides analysis and data collection for the automotive industry, and Neopost USA, one of the worldâ€™s largest producers of mailing and shipping products. Originally built in 1986, the building is located near the intersection of Interstate 40 and Briley Parkway, offering convenient access to Nashville International Airport, downtown Nashville, Interstate 65, and large residential communities to the east and north.
