Advalurem Group is pleased to announce the acquisition of ownership interest in 1000 Floral Vale, a recently built, Class A, 87,155 sf office building located within the Philadelphia MSA in Lower Makefield Township, Yardley, Pennsylvania.
The Property was built in November 2009 to institutional, energy-efficient and environmentally safe design standards, earning it a LEED Gold certification among other accolades. It is the newest and one of the most sophisticated buildings in its submarket. The Property is 80% leased primarily to two ‘investment grade’ tenants on long-term leases with extension options. All tenants entered into lease agreements post-recession and represent first generation space at market terms. The Property is located in a high-income demographic area of northern Philadelphia, proximate to many employment demand drivers, transportation networks and commercial retail nodes. Lower Makefield Township remains one of Philadelphia’s more prominent submarkets, ranking #1 wealthiest area in Pennsylvania and consistently is a top finisher in CNN/Money’s rankings of “Best Places to Live” in the U.S.
AG’s local partner was able to negotiate a favorable price with a high going-in unlevered yield. The purchase price represents a significant discount to replacement cost as valuations were much higher during the last real estate cycle. The re-setting of basis from the developer’s building costs allows AG and its local partner, Pembroke Hobson, an ability to competitively price the remaining space, offering a high quality real estate investment that exhibits stable cash flow with discernible upside.
