The Cooper Commercial Investment Group has been exclusively retained by ownership to sell the 100% fee simple interest in Monroe Centre, a 78,743 S.F. redeveloped center, now anchoring government, medical and office users. The property is being offered for $6,045,000, representing a highly attractive 9.00% CAP Rate, $76/S.F. asking price, below market rental rates and high 15.46% expected year-1 cash-on-cash return.
The center boasts multiple anchor tenants, including the VA with recent 5-year extension that offers a Community-Based Outpatient Clinic, along with a division of their Home-Based Primary Care, the Social Security Administration, OhioMeansJobs and Fresenius Medical Care. Fresenius, a recession proof medical provider of dialysis care is the worldwide leader in the treatment of renal disease and an innovative leader in kidney disease research with approximately $22 billion in annual revenue and the largest operator of outpatient dialysis clinics worldwide serving over 2.5 million patients in 3,800 clinics. Due to the success at this location, Fresenius has been at the center since 1995 and self-funded $250,000 of upgrades into their space. Similarly, in 2018, the VA self-funded $200,000 into their space to renovate the space to their specific needs, both proving their commitment to the center. The office building also includes two offices to the State of Ohio for the BMV, Driver’s Exam and Deputy Registrar, which were custom built and tenant specific. Between the tenured tenants that have been at the property for years, consistently exercising renewals and recent leasing traction, the 92% occupied center caters to the needs of the community. In fact, Interim HealthCare and Bible Baptist Church have been so pleased with the site that they have both expanded by almost doubling the size of their original spaces.
