The large real estate investment trust Health Care REIT purchased the two Pinnacle Medical Group buildings in Manatee County from The Sanders Trust for $16.32 million.
The price equated to $296 per square foot. That figure is higher than the two-year average price per square foot for office space ($118) in the Tampa Bay area, according to the CoStar Group.
The sale included a 19,942-square-foot medical complex on Cortez Road and 35,217-square-foot medical building on 75th Street north of Manatee Avenue. The larger building was originally constructed in 1975 and the smaller, Cortez Road property, was built in 2006.
The former owners of Pinnacle Medical Group, Marc Kallins, Jack Alexander, Stephen Pelham, Kevin Boyer and Sanjay Yathiraj, sold the two buildings to the trust in early 2011.
Officials for Pinnacle Medical Group did not reply to a request for comment prior to deadline.
