INSIDE by Jennifer Hayes A sought-after three-building medical office campus in the heart of Highlands Ranch sold for $33.5 mil- lion to a real estate investment trust specializing in medical office proper- ties. Healthcare Realty, under the name Ridgeline Medical LLC, according to public records, purchased the Ridge- line Medical Campus at 9135, 9137 and 9139 S. Ridgeline Blvd. It was sold by Bancroft Capital, which paid $21.25 million for the campus in 2016. Comprising 136,994 square feet, Ridgeline was 93% leased to ten- ants, including Children’s Hospital Colorado, Centura Health and Kaiser Permanente. The campus is located near the UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital, which opened in June 2019, and Chil- dren’s Hospital Colorado South Cam- pus, Highlands Ranch, which opened in January 2014. As well, Ridgeline is located adja- cent to the Highlands Ranch Town Center, which offers a variety of retail amenities. Constructed in 2001 as a suburban office park, the buildings were con- verted to medical office to meet the demand for the product type in the market and is one of the few outpa- tient medical office campus locations near the two hospitals in Highlands Ranch. Ridgegate Medical Campus’ on-site amenities include a fitness center, showers and lockers, outdoor seating and a conference room. CBRE’s Chris Bodnar, Lee Asher, Ryan Lindsley, Tim Richey and Char- ley Will represented the seller. The deal received a significant amount of interest from medical office investors across the country who saw the opportunity for full medical conversion at higher rents, as well as the three anchor tenants, said Bodnar. The buyer was able to close within a week of signing the purchase and sale agreement, all cash. Bancroft, a privately held real estate investment firm based in Manhattan Beach, California, also owns Highland Ranch I & II, a two-building, 152,208- sf office complex at 630 and 640 Plaza Drive, as well as Sixth Avenue West, Denver Highlands and a number of other Colorado assets. Ridgegate represents the latest addition to Healthcare Realty’s Den- ver area portfolio, which at year-end totaled 651,237 sf. s Denver’s senior housing market on solid footing before pandemic Fostering social connectivity is key to senior housing models Solid ground Connection PAGE 14 PAGE 17 HealthOne acquires second-to-last parcel in RidgeGate for future Sky Ridge project Future play PAGE 4 Highlands Ranch campus sells for $33.5 million April 2020 The three-building medical office campus comprises nearly 137,000 square feet.
