Berger Commercial Realty/Corfac International Senior Vice President Stephen Hyatt and Vice President Brian Batchelder represented the Seller, Federal Tower, Inc., in the sale of Federal Tower, located at 1600 South Federal Highway in Pompano Beach.
Buyer Vera Fund, LLC paid $12,750,000 for the 68,711-square-foot office building, equating to nearly $186 per square foot. The buyer was represented by Nick Polyushkin, CEO and Founder of Vera Realty.
The transaction closed January 24.
Built in 1976, the iconic blue glass building is a highly prominent, 11-story Class B office building situated on 2.3 acres, with a strong history of high occupancy with long term tenants. It is located on the southern border of Pompano Beach and northern border of Fort Lauderdale within close proximity to two major hospitals – Imperial Point Hospital and Holy Cross Medical Center – and to upscale residential neighborhoods of Bay Colony and Imperial Point.
The Buyer plans to renovate the building and attract additional medical and small office tenants. There is also potential for long term redevelopment of the entire site.
“Well-located office buildings with a larger percentage of medical-related tenants continue to be a favorite asset class,” explained Hyatt. “For obvious reasons, medical real estate has not been impacted by the post Covid- work-from-home trend that has negatively affected other office assets.”
This is the third property that Hyatt and Batchelder have sold on behalf of this client.
