Healthcare Real Estate New Construction
Los Angeles Approves 12-Story, Class-A Medical Building
Stockdale Capital Partners (“Stockdale”), a Los Angeles-based, vertically-integrated real estate investment firm, won approval from the Los Angeles City Council for its 145,000 square-foot, Class-A medical building on Los Angeles’ Westside, adjacent to the City of Beverly Hills at the intersection of San Vicente and Wilshire Boulevards. Located near major health care facilities including Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, UCLA Medical Center, and numerous other medical specialists’ offices in the area, 656 S. San Vicente Blvd. is the first major outpatient medical office building built in the area in over twenty years, meeting pent-up demand by healthcare systems and physicians in the area with an extremely low vacancy rate of 5% or less since the Beverly Hills medical office moratorium was enacted in 2011. 656 S. San Vicente Blvd. is designed to accommodate modern, higher-acuity procedures such as surgery and other invasive outpatient services that are not easily-placed in the older building stock of the West Los Angeles office markets. In addition to modern, patient centered medical space, 656 will also be home to state-of-the-art laboratory space that will serve the needs of medical researchers and focused studies in a supply-constrained market for both medical office and life science.
Pinnacle Real Estate Group Assessment
MOB Sales Drop for Second Consecutive Quarter Confirming a Bubble in Activity
As indicated in our previous newsletter, the estimated MOB Sales numbers for Q2 2022 were $3.6B, which was considered strong and above recent historical average but significantly lower than the previous six quarters. That downward trend has continued with the estimated MOB Sales numbers for Q2 2023 estimated at $2.6B, which is the lowest quarterly total since $2.1B posted in Q1 2021. This trend is predictable and probably necessary understanding the consistent rate hikes The Fed has made over this 2022 calendar year, with the latest being the first week of November, combined with many other active factors. Because of this trend the CAP Rates for MOB Sales have started to increase from 5.25% at the beginning of 2022 to now in the 6.15% range at the end of the Q3. Over the past two years, these MOB Sales numbers have confirmed a bubble in activity. However, unlike bubbles in other markets, there need not be panic or fear of a crash. Essentially, for the MOB Sales market it took advantage of multiple opportunistic factors and is now stabilizing back to a sustainable range. We believe this sustainable range will continue for the foreseeable future.
