Dividend Capital Diversified Property Fund (DPF) has expanded its footprint in Austin, acquiring two Class A office buildings from Lincoln Property Co. Totaling 155,000 square feet, the assets sold for $37.3 million, Denver-based DPF announced on Jan. 21. That equates to about $240 per square foot.
Dubbed Rialto I and Rialto II, the buildings are located at 7500 Rialto Blvd. near the intersection of Southwest Parkway and William Cannon. The properties also include a 205-space parking structure. At the time of the sale Rialto I and II were 94 percent leased to 21 tenants.
“The acquisition of Rialto I and Rialto II adds to DPF’s presence in the Austin . . . market, and is consistent with our stated acquisition strategy of buying high quality buildings in select markets characterized by what we believe are strong long-term fundamentals,” said Diversified Property Fund CEO Jeff Johnson in a statement.
DPF funded the purchase using cash on hand and financing provided by its revolving credit facility. Andrew Levy, Kelsey Roop, Todd Savage, and Patrick McCord of HFF represented the seller.
