Remedy and Kayne Anderson Real Estate acquire a trophy medical office portfolio in the Denver area

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., and CHICAGO, June 22, 2023 – Joint venture (JV) partners Remedy Medical Properties and Kayne Anderson Real Estate have acquired a trophy medical office portfolio in the Denver suburb of Englewood.

The acquisition of the two-building, 68,195 square foot Dry Creek Medical Campus closed April 12.

Principals of Chicago-based Remedy and Boca Raton, Fla.-based Kayne Anderson Real Estate – which, aside from hospitals and health systems, are the nation’s largest private owners of medical properties – say the acquisition has many upsides and provides their firms with a number of benefits.

“This acquisition gives us the opportunity to invest in a strong, highly coveted market with excellent demographics,” says Joe Magliochetti, Chief Investment Officer of Remedy. “The Denver area is one of America’s fastest growing regions. There are almost 234,000 residents within a five-mile radius of this property, and the population is forecasted to grow 3.4 percent between 2022 and 2027, compared to only 1.2 percent for the United States as a whole.”

The area also boasts an average household income of nearly $159,000, which is 51 percent more than the national average. As home to 10 Fortune 500 companies, the area also has a diverse, thriving economy with a steady influx of highly educated, talented workers.

“The campus location is also ideal, with easy access to local transportation,” Mr. Magliochetti adds. “It’s two blocks from Interstate Highway 25 and the Dry Creek Light Rail Station, and close to two major airports. It’s also within 10 miles of seven major hospitals, including Sky Ridge Medical Center, Littleton Adventist Hospital and Centennial Hospital.”

The facilities, located at 135 and 145 Inverness Drive E., are 100 percent leased by six leading healthcare providers with complementary specialties. Services are centered around a full-service ambulatory surgery center (ASC) leased to Orthopedic Centers of Colorado (OCC) in partnership with SCA Health, the national leader in specialty care, which is owned by UnitedHealth Group. Dr. Metz Bariatric Surgery, which is also on the campus, recently became part of HealthOne, one of the leading health systems in Colorado. Other specialties housed in the properties include imaging, spine, orthopedics, anesthesia and dermatology.

“The properties house high-quality, well-respected medical tenants that have average remaining lease terms of almost nine years,” says Antonio Minchella, Senior Managing Director, Medical Office, Kayne Anderson Real Estate. “With average annual net operating income (NOI) growth of 3 percent, the assets will deliver a steady, predictable and growing income stream.”

Mr. Minchella adds that the two properties are relatively new, with the three-story 145 Inverness Drive building built in 2019 and the one-story 135 Inverness Drive facility built in 2000. The one-story building was completely renovated into an orthopedic surgery center in 2021 and now features seven operating rooms, three convalescent care rooms, and pre-op and post-op areas.

“The surgery center has been very successful and active, performing more than 500 surgeries a month, which is among the busiest in the Denver area,” he adds.

CBRE U.S. Healthcare & Life Sciences served as the broker for the transaction.
