Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV Adds Colorado MOB to Portfolio
July 9, 2018 | James Sprow | Blue Vault
The co-sponsors of Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV, Inc., announced July 9 that the REIT has acquired a Class A medical office building in Grand Junction, the largest city in western Colorado, for $31.5 million.
Built in 2013, the approximately 83,000-square-foot Grand Junction Medical Office Building was 100 percent leased at the time of acquisition to multiple tenants, including Colorado West Healthcare System and its subsidiaries, which lease approximately 44 percent of the building, Urological Associates of Western Colorado, P.C. and Western Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, P.C. The building is directly connected to Colorado West Healthcare System’s Community Hospital, one of just two acute care hospitals that serve the local population, and is the only medical office building on the hospital campus.
“Grand Junction Medical Office Building is a premier medical office building in the Grand Valley region of western Colorado and is an important component of the medical delivery network for the 150,000 people living in and around Grand Junction,” said Stefan Oh, executive vice president of acquisitions for American Healthcare Investors and Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV. “Additionally, by the year 2035, as part of the Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan, the city anticipates doubling its population through strategic commercial real estate developments and transportation improvements, which we believe may drive even greater long-term value for the building, our portfolio and our investors.”
Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV purchased its first property in June 2016 and, as of the date of acquisition of Grand Junction Medical Office Building, has since acquired a 2.9 million-square-foot portfolio of 47 medical office buildings, senior housing facilities and skilled nursing facilities located in 18 states for an aggregate contract purchase price of approximately $587.1 million. Additionally, the company is pursuing approximately $443.9 million in additional pending acquisitions1 which would result in a total portfolio of approximately 98 healthcare buildings located in 22 states comprised of approximately 4.7 million square feet of gross leasable area upon the successful completion of these potential acquisitions.
According to Blue Vault, the REIT had raised $476.1 million in its public offering, including DRIP proceeds, as of March 31, 2018. It had a distribution rate of 6.00% and 6.51% for its Class T and Class I shares, respectively, based upon offering prices and net of shareholder fees.
