Investment Strategy

Avistone’s primary objectives are to operate the property efficiently, distribute any available cash flow monthly to investors and create value by increasing occupancy and rental rates over the next several years given the strength of the region’s flex/industrial market. We believe the existing rental rates at the Property – which now average $6.61/sf (on a NNN equivalent basis) – are under market, which, according to Colliers International, average $8.60/sf in Marietta and $9.04/sf in the greater Northwest Atlanta Submarket. To facilitate bringing rental rates to market, we plan to correct various deferred maintenance issues, including roofs, driveways, and renovate exteriors/common areas of the Property, as well as implement a make-ready program for existing vacant suites. We believe a successful execution of our plan will ultimately enhance the property’s net operating income and create the potential for property value appreciation over a 3- to 5-year anticipated investment holding period, although there is no assurance objectives will be realized.

Investment Highlights

  • Location

Strategically located in Atlanta’s dynamic Northwest Market, which includes the newly constructed Atlanta Braves Sun Trust Park, the Battery (a newly constructed residential, office and retail development attached to Sun Trust Park), Home Depot’s National IT Center, Georgia Tech’s Marietta Research Institute, Atlanta United Training Facility and Atlanta’s second IKEA location (now under construction).

  • Growth Driver

Cobb County (Marietta) contributed $500 million from 2011-2015 to enhance the the regional corridor surrounding the Property with plans to spend an additional $750 million over the next six (6) years to improve the area’s infrastructure and traffic flow to attract new businesses to the area.(1)

  • Lack of Competition

Northwest Business Center is being acquired at substantially below its replacement cost, with below market rents in a submarket that has not seen competitive space constructed since 2009.(1)

  • Strength of the Tenant Base

Currently the property is 89.5% leased to 68 tenants representing more than 25 industries, with no single tenant occupying more than 13% of the space. The weighted average length of tenancy is over 7 years and 35% of the net rentable area is occupied by strong national or regional credit tenants, which accentuates the long-term value proposition for the property.

  • Market Presence and Expertise

The asset will be managed by Avistone Management, LLC, which currently manages 3 similar projects in the Atlanta market representing over 400,000 of flex-industrial space.
