JLL Confirms that Scale Promotes Institutional Investment – Top 10 Largest Single MOB Sale Value

  • The growing size of medical office buildings and the related need for healthcare providers to utilize third-party capital is increasing opportunities for institutional investment in the sector.
  • For the first time, a medical building sold for more than $400 million – the 510,000 s.f. Memorial Hermann Medical Plaza in Houston sold for $405 million, or $800 p.s.f.
  • Another sold for over $300 million – the 386,500 s.f. NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Center in Manhattan sold for $332.5 million, or $860 p.s.f.
  • The scale and high price per square foot value of these buildings is supported by alignment with renowned market-leading health systems within urban core areas, reinforcing the investment thesis for institutional capital.
  • JLL believes the supply of large scale single-asset opportunities will continue as healthcare delivery becomes more concentrated with leading health systems in highly populated metros, accelerating investment activity in an increasingly accepted asset class.
