JLL Capital Markets arranged the loan for Virtus Real Estate Capital’s acquisition of the fully leased office property

AUSTIN, TX. – July 30th, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged the $26.6 million acquisition loan for UnitedHealth Group’s Optum Campus, a 473,325-square-foot fully leased office campus at 13625 & 13675 Technology Dr. in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Austin-based Virtus Real Estate Capital, to place the 10-year, full-term, fixed-rate loan from a CMBS lender.

Completed in 2001, the mid-rise office complex comprises three buildings that are NNN leased to Optum, a UnitedHealth Group family of businesses that is powering modern healthcare by connecting and serving the whole health system across 150 countries. The state-of-the-art office campus offers a comprehensive amenity package including a cafeteria, fitness center, covered parking, auditorium, and impressive glass lines. Situated less than 20 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis, the suburban office property is strategically located near the intersection of Interstate 494 and U.S. Highway 212, allowing for ease of access throughout the metro area via multiple interstate and highway systems. Also, in one of the Twin Cities’ largest suburbs, Optum’s campus is conveniently placed to offer centralized care for the community and is surrounded by an abundance of desirable neighborhoods and renowned education systems.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Doug Opalka, Senior Director Chris McColpin and Analyst Alastair Barnes.
