Cushman & Wakefield announced today that it has negotiated the $113 million sale of 110 Tower, a 394,830-square-foot trophy office building in the Fort Lauderdale CBD.
The Capital Markets brokerage team of Executive Director Mike Davis, Senior Director Rick Brugge, Senior Director Michael Lerner, Executive Director Scott O’Donnell and Senior Director Dominic Montazemi represented Dallas-based seller Genesis Capital Partners XI Ltd., a GenCap Partners, Inc. investment fund. The asset was acquired by Boca Raton-based IP Capital Partners, LLC for $286 per square foot.
110 Tower is a 30-story, Class A office tower built in 1988. As the tallest and most recognizable building in the CBD, 110 Tower features 22 stories of office space, five stories of structured parking, two stories of mechanical space and ground-floor retail and parking. On-site amenities include restaurants, a health club, a full-service bank, as well as conference and entertainment facilities.
In 2011, 110 Tower completed a comprehensive $15 million renovation program that included upgrades to the ground floor lobby; a new 6th Street look; upgraded upper-floor common areas and other interior spaces; replacement and improvement of all building primary mechanical systems; and a unique exterior lighting system. New and existing amenities include 110 Fitness, Subway, That’s A Wrap, Dunkin’ Donuts, Sabadell Bank, car wash, a wrap-around outdoor terrace, ballroom and multiple conference centers.
110 Tower has received numerous accolades, including USGBC of South Florida’s Gala Verde Award as Florida’s Best in LEED for Existing Buildings; BOMA Fort Lauderdale/Palm Beaches’ TOBY Award for Renovated Building of the Year; BOMA’s Southern Regional TOBY Award for Renovated Building of the Year; and the PRISM Award for Renovated Building.
The property’s location at 110 SE 6th Street sits directly across from the new Broward County Courthouse. Fort Lauderdale has also made a commitment to municipal improvements in immediate proximity to 110 Tower, including the completion of the Wave electric streetcar with a stop directly in front of the asset.
“The CBD has evolved into a true live, work and play environment, which is driving strong demand for office space,” said Davis. “Despite the growth in residential construction and population within the CBD, however, there is currently no new Class A office construction. With growing demand and no new supply, rental rates and occupancies in the Fort Lauderdale CBD are expected to continue to grow well into the future.”
