A Private Buyer Acquired the 91,431-Square-Foot Office Building in Miami’s Waterford Business District Park
Ivy Realty originally acquired Waterford Centre in a 2014 entity sale for $21.9 million. The Greenwich, CT-based investor was represented in the disposition by the Cushman & Wakefield capital markets team of Miguel Alcivar, Dominic Montazemi, Scott O’Donnell, Mike Davis, and Stuart Kapp of Kapp Morrison LLP.
Waterford Centre at Blue Lagoon is a six-story, institutional-grade office building developed in 1999 on a 3.98-acre site at 6205 Blue Lagoon Drive in Miami’s Waterford Business District, a 250-acre master-planned, mixed-use park located directly across the Dolphin Expressway from the Miami International Airport. The park comprises 22 office buildings totaling more than 3.3 million square feet, as well as four hotels, numerous restaurants, banking facilities, a day care center and a U.S. Post Office branch.
The building was 88.8% occupied at the time of sale. Notable tenants include The Parker Company, CheckAlt, Travel Traders and Cardinia Real Estate LLC (Omnicom Goup).
Ivy Realty is an active investor in the South Florida commercial real estate market. The company’s regional portfolio comprises nearly 1 million square feet of office space in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties, including five other buildings in the park.
