SOLD: Medical Mutual Headquarters In Downtown Cleveland For $37.9 Million

Medical Mutual Headquarters - commercial property managementCLIENT: SPECIAL SERVICER
As advisor to a special servicer on a defaulted CMBS loan, we arranged the sale of the 381,000 square foot historic Rose Building to its current tenant, Medical Mutual of Ohio for $37.9 million. Our initial role was to negotiate a “blend and extend” of the absolute triple net lease with Medical Mutual – to extend the term with less than four years remaining to at least 11 years. Over the course of nearly a year, and despite many stops and starts, a deal was struck in June 2017 at the final purchase price. The sale price was about $10 million less than what BentleyForbes paid in 2000, but still a notably high number for an older downtown building, based on the prices that other, comparable properties have sold for.

With the option in hand, we were able to attract two new large users to backfill the vacancy, and the Property subsequently sold for 66% more than the highest qualified bid from failed sales attempt two years prior.
