Allianz Expands US Debt Portfolio with $ 234 Million Funding for 27 Medical Office Buildings
NEW YORK, August 6, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Allianz Real Estate, acting on behalf of several Allianz group companies, has completed a $ 234 million loan investment for a joint venture between the Nuveen US Cities Office Fund and a third-party institutional capital partner, guaranteed by a cross-portfolio of 27 medical practice properties in the United States. The properties were purchased from IRA Capital.
This transaction marks the second US debt transaction with Nuveen Real Estate, following Allianz’s $ 94 million financing by Allianz of an industrial portfolio of six properties for the US Cities Industrial Fund (“USCIF”) of the investment manager in 2020.
This is important for several reasons, including the unique nature of the loan and the size of the portfolio. The transaction is structured over a period of 7 years with both a fixed rate tranche of $ 163.8 million (70%), a variable rate tranche of $ 70.2 million (30%) and is the first of its kind provided by Allianz Real Estate in the United States and Europe. The loan will provide 51% of the total purchase price of $ 462.9 million, and the Sponsorship will have $ 228.9 million equity remaining in the transaction.
Totaling over 747,000 leasable square feet, the portfolio represents 27 high-quality, class A / B, geographically diverse medical office buildings in 13 states: Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey, new York, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin. 20 of the 27 properties are located in CON states, where local governments require an extensive approval process to prove the need to develop new healthcare facilities in each location, creating high barriers to entry and regulatory restrictions around the new offering.
The portfolio is 99% occupied by 38 tenants, 92% of which are investment grade credit health systems. The portfolio rental portfolio benefits from a weighted average unexpired lease term (WALT) of 12 years, providing a reasonable lease renewal profile (33% of portfolio NRA) over the term of the loan. The portfolio is well diversified between traditional medical practices, emergency care centers, outpatient surgeries and specialist treatment centers and specialist hospitals.
Mike Cale, co-head of US debt, Allianz Real Estate, United States said: “This is a complex and innovative transaction that underlines our willingness to take a flexible approach to meet the demands of one of our long-standing global partners.
“Covid-19 has highlighted the need to improve efficiency and ease of access to health care, as well as the growing demand for ambulatory care centers and more severe care spaces in hospitals . spawned by both the CARES Act and the US Small Business Stimulus Program. “
“We are delighted to have finalized this latest transaction,” said Christoph Donner, CEO, Allianz Real Estate from America. “Despite the volatility observed over the past 12 months, Allianz Real Estate has significantly expanded its portfolio in the United States, reaching a record $ 21.6 billion in assets under management at the end of 2020, covering equity and debt.
