R2 Capital Partners Acquires 13.2 Acres, 155,459 Sq. Ft. Retail Plaza
Industry: Real Estate
R2 Capital Partners Inc. (“R2”) announces the acquisition of 168 Rothesay Ave, Saint John, NB.
Alberta, Canada (PRUnderground) January 15th, 2022
The property spans 13.2 acres, consisting of a 155,459 sq. ft. retail anchored plaza. The tenants are a mix of publicly traded corporations, government, and national brands with a weighted average lease term (WALT) of 14.1 years, realizing a going-in capitalization rate of 8.8%.
R2 projects forced appreciation in the property’s value of approximately 36% in the next 12-18 month time frame. The significant percentage increase in property valuation will be achieved as a result of improving operational efficiencies, finalizing lease negotiations from key tenants, the favourable entry price of $12,500,000, and other value-add opportunities. Once stabilized, the increased value will allow R2 to refinance the property and return all invested capital to their investors in less than a 24 months time frame.
Further value-add opportunities which R2 will explore over the coming months include:
- Developing one or more Quick-Service Restaurants (QSRs).
- Renegotiation of under-market value lease rates.
- Leasing the remaining vacant space to a public corporation with a strong covenant and brand.
- Explore the potential for mixed-use, multi-family development with the abundant land area.
