KBS Real Estate Investment Trust III, a publicly registered non-traded real estate investment trust, signed three leases totaling 36,186 square feet at RBC Plaza in Minneapolis.
Fish & Richardson P.C. expanded its existing lease by an additional 31,595 square feet, Pennington Capital, LLC signed a new 2,360-square-foot lease, and Five Guys Burgers and Fries signed a new 2,231-square-foot lease for a retail location with frontage along Nicollet Mall, the primary dining and shopping district of downtown Minneapolis.
I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
