SAN ANTONIO, Texas – (July 20, 2017) – Velocis, a private equity real estate manager, through its Velocis Fund II, has purchased Legacy Oaks, a 224,262-square-foot, Class A medical office complex located directly adjacent to San Antonio’s 900-acre South Texas Medical Center.
The seven-building complex, which recently underwent extensive capital improvements, is currently 75 percent leased by a mix of health care providers, including Baptist Health System, MEDNAX, BB&T, and the Center for Healthcare Services.
“This asset is one that checked all of the boxes for us in terms of our value-add investment strategy,” Mike Lewis, principal, Velocis. “The previous owner did an excellent job of laying the groundwork for the property’s long-term success. Building on their momentum, we plan to increase occupancy by providing fresh capital for physical enhancements, tenant improvements, and leasing commissions.”
To unlock value, Velocis plans to implement a refreshed management and leasing strategy with a market-oriented approach enhanced by key physical improvements.
