As released by Patterson Real Estate Advisory Group
ATLANTA & TAMPA: Albany Road Real Estate Partners (“Albany Road”), with the assistance of its capital advisor Patterson Real Estate Advisory Group (“Patterson”), closed on two separate flex-industrial assets in the Southeast within the past month, one in Atlanta and one in Tampa. Patterson arranged debt financing with Delta Community Credit Union to acquire 120 Interstate Northwest in Atlanta, and with Renasant Bank for Center Point Business Park in Tampa.
120 Interstate Northwest is in Northwest Atlanta’s Cumberland Galleria submarket and consists of four, single-story flex-industrial assets that total 282,000 SF. At the time of acquisition, the project was 88% leased to a diverse rent roll with a strong historical tenant commitment. Just 11 miles from Buckhead and 13 miles from Downtown, 120 Interstate Northwest is surrounded by Atlanta’s most affluent demographics. This combined with the property’s proximity to I- 75 and I-285 make its location extremely attractive to tenants. Additionally, it is only a six-minute drive to The Battery, providing tenants with over 400,000 SF of retail space and over 19 dining options.
Center Point Business Park is a five-building, single-story flex-industrial asset totaling 146,000 SF that was 96% leased at the time of acquisition. The property’s features promote today’s health-conscious environment with direct-to- suite access, surface parking, ground level entry, and minimal exposure to non-employees leading to increased demand and tenant interest for Center Point. The property is located between the two largest growing residential areas in Tampa. it is just two miles from Interstate 4, Interstate 75, and Selmon Expressway, providing easy access to the entire Tampa Bay MSA and its growing, diverse workforce.
“We are excited to add to our Southeast portfolio with the acquisition of 120 Interstate Northwest and Center Point. We see accelerated growth in the Sunbelt region, as quality talent continues its migration south. Atlanta and Central Florida are excellent case studies for this shift in population and jobs. We see value in the shallow- bay industrial space in certain markets and were happy to add these investments to Fund III. It was a pleasure to work with the Patterson team again. They executed at a high level in a very difficult environment.” said Scott Cloud, Managing Director of Albany Road’s Southeast platform.
“It’s always a pleasure working with Albany Road, and we are excited to see them continue growing their portfolio in the Southeast” said Lance Patterson, CEO of Patterson Real Estate Advisory Group. “Both deals were received favorably by debt capital markets and resulted in a competitive debt process.”
