Anchor Health Properties Acquires a nearly 30,000 Square Foot Class A Medical Office Building in Nashville, Tennessee
Anchor Health Properties (Anchor), a national, full service healthcare real estate development, management, and investment company focused exclusively on healthcare facilities, has recently closed on the acquisition of a two story, 29,738 square foot Class A medical office building located in the growing Antioch / Airport South submarket of Nashville, Tennessee. The asset was acquired through a joint venture with an institutional equity partner.
Strategically located in a dense commercial and retail corridor, the facility at 330 Wallace Road features proximity to TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center, a 126-bed comprehensive facility offering a variety of acute care services and is within seven miles of downtown Nashville. Constructed in 2006, comprehensive renovations were completed in 2020, including new HVAC units, landscaping and site improvements, updated signage, and other mechanical and cosmetic enhancements.
The MOB is 84% occupied by a desirable roster of clinical medical tenancy, including Nashville Gastroenterology & Hepatology, a renowned local practice providing diagnostic gastroenterology and endoscopy services and Sanitas Medical Center, a national provider of primary care and urgent care services with more than 50 locations. A wholly-owned subsidiary of Keralty, a global health organization, Sanitas Medical Center is also partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield (Moody’s Baa1) in Tennessee.
The anchor tenancy is joined by an additional synergistic mix of clinical services, including an imaging clinic operated by Nashville Pain and Wellness, orthopedics, rehabilitation, and dentistry.
“Advantageously situated in close proximity to TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center, we view this asset as a core, long-term holding of ours and look forward to supporting the best in class clinical medical tenancy there,” shared James Schmid, Chief Investment Officer and Managing Partner with Anchor. “As we join the neighboring community, this asset represents our sixth acquisition in Tennessee and our second significant investment in recent months as we continue to build scale across the broader Nashville MSA, which is one of Anchor’s largest markets by square feet managed. Our local office now offers ten team members with a healthy mix of experience across all of our platforms and as we continue to expand our ‘boots on the ground’ presence here, we expect to be investing more heavily in the MSA as well.”
Leading the acquisition process, Albert Lord, Investment Associate with Anchor, echoed Mr. Schmid’s sentiments, “This transaction further expands our footprint in the high growth Nashville market. The property offered an attractive opportunity to invest in a recently renovated facility in a location with desirable demographics, and to begin long-term relationships with highly respected physician groups. It was a pleasure working with all parties involved, including our partners at CBRE Nashville, and Capital One. We’re excited to see the success of this investment and its tenants over time.”
Frank Thomasson, First Vice President with CBRE provided sales advisory services on behalf of the Seller. Capital One provided secured debt financing. As the new owner of the facility, Anchor Health Properties will provide go forward asset, and property management services at this location.
