Investment Overview:

Newmark and RealINSIGHT Marketplace are pleased to present the opportunity to acquire the fee-simple interest in University Center Professional Building (the “Property” or the "Building"), a 29,505 square-foot office building located in one of the most sought-after desert communities.

University Center Professional Building was delivered in 2007 and sits on a 1.39-acre parcel adjacent to the freeway. This two-story office building features concrete tilt construction with wood and steel framing. Heating and cooling to the building is provided by 23 Trane HVAC package units that sit on top of the flat, built-up-roofing system.

The Property is currently 88% leased by two tenants – Milan Institute (64% NRA) and HUB International Insurance Services (24% NRA). Both tenants have more than five years remaining on their leases, providing an investor with secure cash flow well into the future. Milan Institute is currently renovating their space, at their own cost, to consolidate additional operations into the Building, which demonstrates their commitment to this location.

An investor stands to benefit from significant upside that can be unlocked through lease-up of the in-place vacancy and rolling both tenants to market upon lease expiration. The Property is conveniently located with direct access off the freeway and provides excellent signage opportunities and  freeway visibility. Numerous retail/restaurant amenities are located within close proximity, making the Property an highly attractive option for tenants in the market.
