Chicago, February 16, 2018 – Heitman LLC, a global real estate investment management firm, today announced the acquisition of a 1.4 million square foot medical office portfolio comprised of 17 buildings in seven states on behalf of an affiliate of Heitman. Denver-based NexCore Group advised Heitman during the acquisition and will provide operating and property management services for the portfolio under a long-term contract.
The PHT Medical Office Portfolio consists of seven Class-A medical office buildings (MOBs) in Texas and five in Indiana, with the remaining assets located in Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina and Virginia.
The portfolio is comprised of properties located in sought-after, high-population-growth markets. The majority of the properties were built after 2005 and are affiliated with highly-rated, market-leading, and academic health systems.
Commented Brian Pieracci, Heitman Managing Director: “We are pleased to continue our productive partnership with NexCore. The PHT Portfolio is a high-quality, well-diversified portfolio of premier properties with near-100 percent occupancy and a collective tenancy of highly-rated, market-leading health systems. The Class-A portfolio exhibits nearly all of the qualities that we look for when acquiring core medical office properties for our portfolio.
