$45.5M Off-Market Sale Highlights Demand For Medical Office Space

Colliers and Avison Young closed on the sale of Crossroads III, a suburban Class A medical office building located at 8100 SW 10th Street in Plantation.

Executive Managing Director Mark M. Rubin, Director Bastian Laggerbauer, and Financial Analyst Jake Stauber of the Colliers South Florida Investment Services Team collaborated with Justin Cope and Greg Martin of Avison Young in representing the buyer, Anchor Health Properties.

The off-market transaction totaled $45.5 million or $475 psf.

“The South Florida market continues to thrive and see high demand for medical office properties with strong tenancy,” said Rubin. “In this highly competitive market, we’re pleased to have assisted our client within a short timeframe in acquiring a high-quality asset that will complement their existing national portfolio.”

The medical office building is leased long-term to the University of Miami (UM) Hospital. The University of Miami Health System focuses on delivering leading-edge patient care by the region’s best doctors, powered by groundbreaking research and medical education. UM plans to expand to the entire property and add a state-of-the-art 15,000-square-foot radiotherapy center.

“This was a prime opportunity for the buyers to acquire a class A medical office asset leased by a credit long-term tenant, off-market, prior to the asset being widely marketed,” said Laggerbauer. “The buyer already owns another asset leased by UM.”

Anchor Health Properties is a national full-service healthcare real estate company focused exclusively on medical facilities. The Virginia-based company fosters strong programmatic relationships within healthcare, real estate, and finance with more than $1 billion of completed development projects, more than 7.5 million square feet under management, and more than $2 billion invested in stabilized healthcare facilities.

Plantation is home to some of the leading healthcare and medical office tenants in South Florida, including the University of Miami Health System, Sunshine State Health, Humana, Aetna, and Masa Global. Broward County, mainly Plantation, is an attractive investment market due to its proximity to dense residential neighborhoods, corporate campuses, and hospitals such as Plantation General Hospital, Mercy Hospital, Memorial Hospital, and HCA Florida University Hospital, all within an 8-mile radius of the city.

Limited medical office construction continues to keep the supply tight and rents competitive, currently at $32.28 per square foot gross. Demand for medical office space has been elevated since the pandemic’s start as the product type proved to be resilient, high-yielding, and recession-proof. The outlook for medical offices remains positive as the healthcare needs in South Florida continue to expand in line with population growth.
