$38 million or $177 PSF
60% Discount-to-Replacement Cost

Market Opportunity

Sixteen-story office tower, 65% leased at acquisition. Minimal investments by prior owner over two decades resulted in dated and tired common areas, poor curb appeal, negative tenant and broker perceptions and lackluster demand.

Strategy & Implementation

Investing $5 million in common areas, amenity spaces and building systems to enhance tenant and visitor experiences. Investing $6 million in leasing transaction costs. Rebranding with new name, logo and property awareness campaign. Pursuing early renewals to stagger lease expirations. Constructing the submarket’s only full-floor coworking and shared amenity space exclusively for that floor’s tenants.

$24 million or $189 PSF
55% Discount-to-Replacement Cost

Market Opportunity

Two office buildings, 78% leased at acquisition. Minimal investments by prior owner had resulted in dated common areas, poor curb appeal and financial underperformance. Outcome of pending small public sector land condemnation unknown. Adjacent to-be-developed private sector mixed-use project expected to be disruptive. Potential opportunity to develop multifamily on the site's surface parking lots.

Strategy & Implementation

Pursuing condemnation award and negotiating with adjacent property owner to facilitate the development of both sites. Evaluating multifamily development potential. Building new and modern spec suites to accelerate leasing velocity. Investing $3 million in leasing transaction costs.


Rebranding capital investments are underway, as is a marketing campaign featuring the coming amenities and new logo and name.
