Colliers South Florida Investment Services Team represented the seller in the transaction
BOCA RATON, FL, February 23, 2022 – A California buyer, Brickstar Capital, has closed on the acquisition of Spanish River Plaza, located at 500 NE Spanish River Boulevard in Boca Raton. Executive Managing Director Mark M. Rubin and Director Bastian Laggerbauer of Colliers | South Florida Investment Services Team represented the seller, Chart Organization, a real estate investment and management company based in Lynbrook, NY, in the transaction totaling $12.65 million.
“The South Florida investment market continues to achieve record pricing as opportunities to acquire solid performing properties in highly desirable locations become more limited,” said Rubin. “Investor demand remains strong and is fueled by the rising rental rates and continued low financing which captivates interest from investor groups from all over the country.”
The 56,034-square-foot office and retail complex is situated on nearly 4.5 acres directly at the intersection of South Federal Highway and Northeast Spanish River Boulevard and one block away from North Dixie Highway. The complex benefits from the newly enhanced Spanish River interchange and the potential for additional development in the future.
“The buyer has experience aquiring similar mixed-use assets and has a creative repositioning strategy planned for the complex that will appeal to the affluent demographics in Boca Raton,” said Laggerbauer.
South Florida’s growing population and accelerated pandemic recovery continues to push rental rates and capture the attention of investors. Mixed-use investors are particularly attracted to Boca Raton’s affluent population, having an average household income of nearly $124,000. This has led to record sale pricing and volume in Boca Raton, with office sale volume reaching $926.5 million for the year of 2021. The average sales price for office space is currently $300 per square foot and over $330 per square foot for retail space. Additionally, the average rental rate for office space in Boca Raton has increased 6.6 percent year-over-year while the average rental rate for retail space has increased 10.2 percent year-over-year.
