HOUSTON – Apr. 21, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale and arranged financing for Bellaire Medical Plaza, a 58,517-square-foot medical office building near the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas.
JLL represented the seller, Ridgeline Capital Partners, and procured the buyer, an affiliate of Rycore Capital. In addition, JLL worked on behalf of Rycore Capital to secure the acquisition loan.
Bellaire Medical Plaza is located at 5420 Dashwood Dr. within a designated Opportunity Zone and a thriving medical office market. The property is positioned just five miles from the Texas Medical Center campus, which is considered the largest medical complex in the world with more than 50 million square feet of healthcare space and 106,000 employees.
The 88%-leased property is home to a synergistic mix of medical tenants with specialties in primary care, dialysis, pain management, ophthalmology, audiology, and laboratory services, including UT Physicians, Quest Diagnostics, LabCorp and Harris Health System. In addition, the three-story facility offers a walk-in health clinic and pharmacy on site. The property also includes a 3.67-acre parcel allowing for future development on the site.
The JLL team representing the seller was led by Kevin McConn, Managing Director of JLL’s Houston Capital Markets team, and Brian Bacharach, Managing Director of JLL’s National Healthcare Capital Markets Group.
JLL’s Capital Markets team leading the financing efforts included Senior Managing Director Matt Kafka and Managing Director Cameron Cureton.
“Bellaire Medical Plaza has a fantastic location in Houston’s Inner Loop, generating demand from the Texas Medical Center as well as benefiting from the enormous residential and workforce population within a few miles of the property,” said McConn.
