Montecito Medical Real Estate, a premier owner of medical office properties throughout the U.S., has completed the acquisition of a Class A, multi-tenant medical property in the Richmond suburb of Henrico, Virginia.
The 45,333 square-foot, Class A GreenGate Medical Office Building, constructed in 2019, is currently home to five medical tenants under long-term lease, including Tuckahoe Orthopedic Associates, East Coast Endodontics, RVO Orthodontics, River Run Dental and PartnerMD. A sixth tenant, VCU Health, is scheduled to occupy 9,000 square feet of the building’s space on April 1, 2021, which will bring the occupancy rate for the property to 94%.
“This is our second medical office acquisition in the Richmond market in as many months, and it brings to an even dozen the number of properties we own in Virginia,” said Chip Conk, CEO of Montecito Medical. “This market and this state obviously offer investment opportunities that we find very attractive, and on top of that we had the opportunity with the GreenGate Medical Office Building to acquire an almost new asset with a number of market-leading providers as tenants in a highly desirable area. We are very excited about this acquisition.”
Tuckahoe Orthopedic Associates, which occupies nearly 15,000 square feet of the GreenGate MOB, is a market-dominant provider that has served the Richmond area for more than 40 years, treating patients ranging from children to older adults and from local sports teams to Olympic athletes. The group has two other locations in addition to the GreenGate MOB property.
PartnerMD, currently the building’s second largest tenant, is a leading provider of concierge medicine and executive health services. At the Henrico location, the group provides primary care services.
RVO Orthodontics has been named as Richmond’s top orthodontic group and as one of the area’s top dentists for seven consecutive years. The growing practice has two other offices in the market area. The GreenGate MOB location serves as RVO’s main office.
River Run Dental provides general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry and restorative dentistry at this location, while East Coast Endodontics is an award-winning practice in Virginia that provides root canals and endodontic therapies. The group has two locations in the Richmond MSA.
VCU Health is Virginia’s leading health system, encompassing an academic medical, the region’s only full-service children’s hospital, and more than 80 locations. When it begins providing women’s health services at the GreenGate property on April 1, VCU Health will become the building’s second largest tenant.
“Working with Chip and his team through the transaction has been a pleasure,” said Ricky Core, President of Richmond-based Markel|Eagle Partners. “We are excited to welcome Montecito Medical to the ownership mix at GreenGate.”
The GreenGate MOB, at 3400 Haydenpark Lane, is strategically located in Richmond’s Northwest Quadrant, in an affluent area near high-end retail and new residential development. The property is situated just off a major artery, US Highway 250, with convenient access to Interstate 64.
Henrico County is a growing and highly attractive market of approximately 335,000 people. The county is rated the #1 Best Place to Raise a Family in Virginia, boasts the #2-rated school system in the Commonwealth and is headquarters to four Fortune 1000 companies.
