MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 16, 2020 – Minneapolis-based Davis has kicked off its new medical real estate investment fund with a series of thirteen transactions totaling 536,362 square feet and $194 million in value.

Davis Medical Investors, LLC closed on the acquisitions of eight medical office buildings (MOBs) totaling 309,735 square feet during the first two weeks of December for a total of $112 million. Three of the properties were sold into the fund from existing Davis-affiliated partnerships and five were newly acquired from third parties.

“This is just the start of what we expect will be a fund of 20+ medical office buildings totaling up to $240 million,” says Mark Davis, Founder and Managing Partner of the national healthcare real estate development, property management, brokerage and investment firm.

He added, “We are looking for $125 million of medical building acquisitions in 2021, and we’re highly motivated, flexible and quick in closing on these assets.”

Stewart Davis, Davis Executive Vice President – Investments, said,  “These facilities fit our MOB acquisition criteria to a “T” in terms of deal size, type of property and tenancy, occupancy level, market, and location. In addition, as these acquisitions are growing our portfolio of assets, they are also growing our property management portfolio.”

He added, “These transactions are the culmination of many months of hard work. Despite some of the acquisitions being temporarily put-on hiatus because of COVID-19, we stayed in close contact with the sellers to ensure we successfully brought these deals to fruition.”

The eight properties are in Tennessee (three), Minnesota (three), Ohio and Connecticut. The Tennessee and Connecticut acquisitions are the firm’s first in those states. The portfolio includes all Class A and Class B+ off-campus assets that have an average building age of 10 years. They house a diverse mix of tenants with a stable overall occupancy of 99 percent and a weighted average lease term of more than eight years.

The recent acquisitions by Davis include the 55,000-square-foot The Urology Group (TUG) medical building in Cincinnati (top) and the 52,767-square-foot Cornerstone Medical Office Building in Woodbury, Minn. Both buildings are 100 percent occupied by leading healthcare providers.

The properties are:

  • Hartmann MOB, Tenn., 50,951 s.f., 93% leased
  • Smyrna MOB, Tenn., 37,566 s.f., 96% leased
  • Crossings MOB, Tenn., 38,852 s.f., 100% leased
  • M Health-Fairview, Minn., 18,672 s.f., 100% leased

  • The Urology Group MOB, Ohio, 55,000 s.f., 100% leased
  • EastPoint MOB, Conn., 43,790 s.f., 100% leased

The capital behind the new Davis Medical Investors Fund included long-time Davis partners as well as the participation of a strong Davis institutional partner.   Capital One is providing the financing for the new Fund.    

“Capital One is pleased to expand our relationship with Davis on the transaction, which provides them with room to grow. We are excited to continue to work with this excellent borrower now and in the future,” says Erik Tellefson, Managing Director, Capital One.

“Davis is an existing Capital One borrower and it is phenomenal to close this credit facility with them. We have big plans with them from a lending standpoint,” says Natalie Sproull, Senior Director, Capital One.
