In an impressively sized deal, PCCP L.L.C. has formed a joint venture with Fuller Realty Partners L.L.C. to purchase a distressed 503,930-square-foot office portfolio in Houston’s Galleria submarket.
According to PCCP senior vice president Jed Lassere, the transaction was a lender-facilitated short sale. The properties include the 281,590-square-foot 2425 West Loop and the 222,340-square-foot 1001 West Loop. They were built in 1980 and 1978, respectively, and are located a mile apart along Loop 610.
Fuller was the owner of 2425 West Loop from 1997 to 2007 and owned 1001 West Loop from 2003 to 2007. The former is 58.5 percent occupied, while the latter is 43.4 percent occupied. The submarket’s average occupancy rate is 87.5 percent.
PCCP says it is targeting the Houston submarket due to a growing population and lower-than-average unemployment rate, as well as its youthful demographics.
