Out-of-state buyer purchased the facilities based on their prime location and high-quality medical tenants

ATLANTA – March 25, 2019 – After only a three-week marketing period, Avison Young Atlanta Capital Markets Group today announced the sale of 721 Wellness Way and 710 Newnan Crossing Medical Office Building on behalf of a private partnership group for $11.55 million. Casey Keitchen, a principal in Avison Young’s U.S. Capital Markets group, led the team to close the sale of the two medical office buildings totaling more than 45,000 square feet, which sold to an out-of-state buyer that is new to the Atlanta market.

"Based on Casey's 18 years of office investment sales expertise, we knew he would be an invaluable addition to the Avison Young team after joining us last October," said Steve Dils – principal and managing director, Avison Young Atlanta. "He and the team reviewed multiple offers from across the U.S., and in fact, shortened the marketing term due to overwhelming demand," he added.

The two assets were in close proximity to the dominant hospital in each respective area and were 100 percent occupied at the time of sale, 26 percent of which were by Northside Hospital and Piedmont Hospital.

"The medical office investment sector continues to thrive as demand outpaces supply and new buyers, both institutional and non-institutional, enter the space seeking quality medical assets with hospital credit such as these," said Casey Keitchen, principal – Avison Young Atlanta.
