Single Tenant Net Lease Spurs Financing for Philadelphia Suburb Headquarters

JLL secures $77 million in acquisition financing for the Saint-Gobain Corporation’s North American headquarters

PHILADELPHIA, March 14, 2016 – JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm secured $77 million in acquisition financing on behalf of U.K.-based 90 North Real Estate Partners for the Saint-Gobain Corporation's North American headquarters, located in the Philadelphia suburb of Malvern. The property includes two buildings, totaling 321,226 square feet and is 100 percent triple-net leased to Saint-Gobain Corporation. Santander Bank, N.A. and Citizens Bank, N.A. provided the financing.

Managing Directors Keith Largay and David Hendrickson, Senior Vice President Chad Orcutt and Vice President Fiorentina Malko led the JLL team on the transaction.

"The property features Class A+, LEED Gold certified office space with a 15-year lease to a strong credit tenant, all of which drove significant interest from the lending community," said Largay.

"This asset is a particularly strong investment because of the state-of-the-art renovations and its location in the highly desirable Malvern submarket, which accounted for approximately 30 percent of the total absorption for the Philadelphia suburbs in 2015," added Orcutt.

The property is located in Chester County, just off of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and only 30 miles from downtown Philadelphia. The 34.6-acre campus features two state-of-the-art office buildings, which recently underwent renovations including electronically tinted SAGE glass, rain gardens and an employee garden plaza.
