DULUTH, Ga. – (June 20, 2019) – Velocis, a private equity real estate investment management firm, has purchased Sugarloaf Corporate Center, a three-building, class A master-planned office
park centrally located in the rapidly urbanizing Sugarloaf micro market, northeast of Atlanta.
“Sugarloaf Corporate Center features a well-diversified roll schedule and captive tenancy that offers strong and secure cash-flow at an 8.75 percent going-in cap rate,” said Jim Yoder, partner, Velocis. “This property is a best-in-class office asset located in a submarket that has some of the best demographics and access in metro Atlanta.”
Sugarloaf Corporate Center sits on a 20-acre site within a 62-acre office park and mixed-use development in the heart of Atlanta’s Gwinnett County. Built between 1998 and 2001 and totaling 256,180 square feet, the property is 98 percent leased to 30 high-quality tenants.
In line with Velocis’ value-add investment approach, the fund manager will implement key property upgrades on top of extensive improvements made by the former owner. Enhancements will include an improved outdoor amenity area, including Wi-Fi and music offerings, the addition of on-site food service, cosmetic upgrades to restrooms, a new roof for one of the buildings and other back-of-house improvements.
Sugarloaf Corporate Center is Velocis’ fourth asset in the Atlanta market. The fund manager also owns Parkway at Avalon, a two-building office complex in Alpharetta.
