PLANS, DESCRIPTION: Broadstone Net Lease Inc. purchased four medical offices operated by Tower Radiology for $14.51 million.


The price equated to $3.63 million per building.


The transaction was a sale/leaseback, and Tower Radiology agreed to a 15-year triple-net lease on all of the properties, where it will pay certain building expenses.


Camille Renshaw and Joshua Pardue of Colliers International Tampa Bay handled the transaction. Colliers officials say the price is a national record for comparable, stabilized medical office buildings at a 7.47% capitalization rate, a key indicator that compares purchase price to rents.


“Seven percent is what we are seeing for national tenants,” Pardue says. “The fact that it was paid for a regional medical group is noteworthy, especially given the economic environment. There is a great bit of capital out there looking for similar medical investments.”


The properties were especially attractive to Broadstone, Pardue says, because of the imaging group's large market share. Tower Radiology is the second largest imaging firm in Florida and the 15th largest nationwide.


Broadstone Net Lease Inc. is a private real estate investment trust that invests in freestanding single-tenant properties under net leases, where the tenant pays a variety of expenses in addition to rent. Broadstone currently owns 78 properties in 21 states.
