It is also located near many national and regional banks including Wells Fargo, M&T Bank, Bank of America, Lakeland Bank, and Columbia Bank.
Walgreens in Cherry Hill, NJ closed at a sale price of 8.9 million, a 5.49% cap rate. Blake Barbarisi and Adam Mancinone represented the seller buyer in the transaction. Walgreens signed a 25-year absolute triple net (NNN) lease in 2010, which includes options periods through 2085. This has been a proven location for Walgreens since they opened six years ago. The property is located three miles from the New Jersey Tpke.(I-95) and I-295. The asset benefits from excellent visibility and close proximity to local shopping and all major thoroughfares within Cherry Hill. The property is located at the northwest corner of North Kings Highway and Chapel Avenue with traffic counts in excess of 24,000 vehicles per day. Along the Kings Highway and Chapel Avenue corridors lies over two million square feet of office space comprised of mostly medical users. With an affluent population, and average household income exceeding $95,000, this site will only appreciate over time and would be considered a trophy in any investor’s portfolio.
Barbarisi and Mancinone also procured the buyer of Fresenius Medical Center in Farmville, NC to close the property at a sale price of $3.55 million. The 7,186 s/f, newly constructed property is fully occupied by Fresenius Medical Care and operates under a double net lease with over 14 years remaining on the initial lease term with three, 5- year renewal options and scheduled rental escalations every five years. The Lease is guaranteed by Fresenius’ corporate parent, Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc., (“FMCH”). With a current net worth of over $22.5 billion, FMCH is the largest provider of renal care, both internationally, and throughout the nation. This is a unique property as it is located in a “Certificate of Need” state which places limitations on the development of new facilities, preventing health care competition with the subject property while creating a high barrier of entry for competition.
