Caddis Sells Southwest Medical Office Building Portfolio to Griffin-American Healthcare REIT III
Proceeds from the sale of three Texas medical office buildings and a Colorado surgical hospital and MOB will be redeployed into other developments and acquisitions, company says
DALLAS, April 8, 2015 – Leading national healthcare real estate investment, development and management company Caddis has sold its Southwest medical office building (MOB) portfolio to Griffin-American Healthcare REIT III Inc. The portfolio, totaling 182,528 square feet, includes two MOBs located in Houston, Texas suburbs, one MOB in a Dallas/Fort suburb and a hospital/MOB complex in Durango, Colo.
“With demand for medical office buildings at an all-time high, we felt this was an opportune time to sell these assets and redeploy that capital into other MOB and senior housing development and acquisition opportunities,” says Jason Signor, Caddis CEO and Partner.
Matt Mattox, Caddis Executive Vice President and Partner, added: “Consistent with all Caddis investment and development projects, these properties are institutional-quality assets occupied by market-leading healthcare systems and physician practices in their respective geographies.”
“Griffin-American Healthcare REIT III is seeking attractive, performing healthcare real estate assets to add to its rapidly growing portfolio,” says Danny Prosky, President and Chief Operating Officer of Griffin-American Healthcare REIT III. “The medical office buildings and surgical hospital acquired from Caddis offer a combination of high and stable occupancy, favorable geographic locations in markets with growing demand for healthcare services, and strong affiliations with major healthcare systems. We believe this was an exceptional acquisition for the company and its stockholders.”
Barrett Freeman, Caddis Director of Acquisitions, said that Caddis will continue to provide property management services for the five buildings. “By continuing to manage these properties, we can provide tenants with a seamless transition while continuing to maintain and grow our property management platform,” said Mr. Freeman.
Lee Asher and Chris Bodnar of the CBRE U.S. Healthcare Capital Markets Group served as the seller’s exclusive advisor.
