News Release: MH Deschaumes Advises LaSalle on Acquisition of UMichigan Campus Adjacent MOB

Grand Rapids, Mich. — Maarten Deschaumes advised LaSalle Investment Management, a leading real estate investment management firm and independent subsidiary of Jones Lang LaSalle (NYSE: JLL), on the off-market acquisition of 1673 Gezon Parkway, Wyoming in the suburbs of Grand Rapids.

The newly constructed property is 100% leased to two leading specialty healthcare providers in the Grand Rapids MSA and is adjacent to the campus of University of Michigan Health-West. Services at this location include Mohs Surgery, Dermatopathology, Photodynamic Therapy, Orthodontics, Skin Cancer Treatment, and more.

“Gezon Parkway is a high quality, very stable asset with tremendous improvements which would be hard to replicate in today’s high construction cost environment,” said Maarten Deschaumes. “The property is home to well-known, accomplished physicians and is also a short walk to the University of Michigan Health-West campus.”

“This property is an excellent fit for our healthcare-focused office portfolio, which now totals 15 properties across geographically diverse markets, valued at greater than $520 million and accounts for approximately 8 percent of our total portfolio,” said Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust. “We believe that within a broadly diversified real estate portfolio, the case for healthcare real estate is primarily driven by its diversification benefits, often longer term leases, lower capital expenditures, higher tenant retention, and reliability and durability of cash flows. Ultimately, we strive to deliver long-term, durable cashflow for our stockholders, and have conviction that medical office properties are a key ingredient to achieving this.”
