Continued healthcare demand fuels on-campus Fullerton, CA MOB sale

April 28, 2021

SAN DIEGO – Apr. 28, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale and financing of 101 Laguna, a 21,554-square-foot medical office building in Fullerton, California.

JLL worked on behalf of the seller, Healthcare Property Advisors, in completing the sale to the buyer, Virtus Real Estate Capital. Additionally, JLL worked on behalf of the buyer to secure the seven-year, floating-rate acquisition loan.

101 Laguna is located approximately 30 miles southeast of Downtown Los Angeles, adjacent to the 320-bed St. Jude Medical Center, which is part of the Providence St. Joseph Health Network. The facility, which was recently renovated and expanded in 2017, operates as a Women’s Health Center for St. Joseph Heritage Healthcare which just signed a new long-term lease for the entire property. Services available at the property include obstetrics and gynecology, invasive robotic surgery, digital mammography, and ultrasound.

The JLL Healthcare Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Managing Directors Evan Kovac and Andrew Milne, Director Matt Dicesare, Vice President Trent Jemmett and Analyst Niema Beglari.

“We continue to see strong demand for healthcare properties and anticipate this will continue for the long-term,” said Milne. “101 Laguna is a great investment for Virtus as it has maintained a strong historical occupancy and just underwent an extensive upgrade and expansion.”

JLL’s Capital Markets team spearheading the debt efforts was led by Managing Director John Chun and Analyst Jacob Fideler.
