The joint venture acquired Greenbriar Business Park from KBS REIT I, a public non-listed REIT. CBRE brokers Steve Preston and Douglass Johnson represented KBS REIT I in the transaction. HFF’s Miami office helped the Adler Real Estate Fund secure a primary mortgage with favorable terms from SunTrust Bank.
“With a strong cap rate, favorable financing, stable cash flow in-place, and a diverse tenant mix, sound investment fundamentals prompted our decision to add Greenbriar Business Park to the Adler Real Estate Fund’s portfolio,” said Matthew L. Adler, the Adler Real Estate Fund’s Chief Investment Officer. “We plan to maximize the asset’s value over the coming years through growth in occupancy and by maintaining a satisfied tenant base resulting from our property management capabilities.”
The Adler Real Estate Fund is a closed-end discretionary fund managed by Adler Group, one of Florida’s largest commercial real estate firms. The Fund encompasses more than 4.5 million square feet of office, industrial and flex space and accounting for more than $460 million in transactions. The Greenbriar Business Park acquisition follows the Fund’s first Nashville-area investment: the January 2011 purchase of the Parklane Building, a 110,000 square foot office building. The Fund primarily targets multi-tenant, management-intensive office and industrial properties in growing U.S. markets. Greenbriar Business Park becomes the Fund’s eighth asset.
“Our purchase of the Parklane Building last year has been one of the Fund’s best performing investments to date, and we are optimistic that Greenbriar Business Park will follow that trajectory,”
Current tenants at Greenbriar Business Park include Honeywell International (NYSE: HON), Diebold (NYSE: DBD), Dataium, which provides analysis and data collection for the automotive industry, and Neopost USA, one of the world’s largest producers of mailing and shipping products. Originally built in 1986, the building is located near the intersection of Interstate 40 and Briley Parkway, offering convenient access to Nashville International Airport, downtown Nashville, Interstate 65, and large residential communities to the east and north.
