JLL completes sale of 10-property MOB portfolio in NC

60% of the square footage is in the rapidly growing Charlotte MSA

December 05, 2019

PHILADELPHIA, December 5, 2019 – JLL announced today that it has closed the sale of a fully leased MOB portfolio comprising 10 outpatient orthopedic medical office buildings totaling 218,213 square feet near Charlotte and Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  MBRE Healthcare and Kayne Anderson purchased the portfolio.

The portfolio is a core compilation of 10 on- and off-campus, outpatient orthopedic medical office buildings and surgery centers, 100% leased to OrthoCarolina, the 3rd largest orthopedic provider in the nation by physician count, with a weighted remaining lease term of 13 years. Three of the buildings feature ambulatory surgery centers with two operating rooms each. 60% of the properties are in the Charlotte MSA, the 23rd largest MSA in the country, with two properties located in Winston-Salem and one each in Laurinburg and Shelby. All portfolio properties are within 2.2 miles of the nearest hospital.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller includes managing directors Ben Appel and Evan Kovac and directors Andrew Milne and Zachary Drozda, and senior managing director Ted Flagg.

“The marketing process yielded tremendous interest from core capital sources both public and private, which is a testament to the caliber of OrthoCarolina, and the resulting opportunity for an investor to create immediate scale to that relationship,” Appel said.

“Ownership structured an attractive lease and a desirable physician joint venture that bolstered the marketing of the assets. MBRE did a great job continuing the joint venture relationship with the physicians,” added Kovac.
