We have an enormous responsibility to our world-class partners and to the City to get this right after a lengthy and inclusive planning process, where a wide range of contributors worked collabora- tively to lay the groundwork for Pittsburgh’s next great place.” The formal proposal to the Authorities comes after pre- liminary development plans for the district’s E Block – complete with public parking, destination retail and a live entertainment venue – were approved by City Council, the URA and the SEA over the past few months. Combined these two projects represent nearly $350 million of development that – along with the I-579 Cap Park project and adjacent 300-unit multifamily devel- opment by Intergen and the Penguins – are the catalysts for the redevelopment of one of the most attractive urban infill sites across the entire country. continued on page 16A

On December 12, 2019, BPG submitted a Letter of Intent to the SEA and URA to transform 1.25 acres of surface parking lots for downtown employees and patrons of PPG Paints Arena, at the intersection of Washington Pl. and Bedford Ave., into a signature tower. The project vision calls for a 500,000 s/f sustainable build- ing with a mix of amenities, restaurants, public parking and modern offices. FNB will lease over 160,000 s/f of com- mercial space in the tower

across eight floors, with addi- tional options to expand to ac- commodate future growth. The project includes a destination outdoor gathering space that will provide access to a linear parkland that will be one of the main features of the 28-acre, mixed-use district. “This is one of the most significant projects in our com- pany’s history,” said BPG’s managing partner C hris Buc- cini . “This tower will energize a long-sought transformation between growing districts in Pittsburgh’s downtown and

Cold Storage Gaining Favor With Investors

S ADDLE BROOK, NJ — Investors increas- ingly are warming up to the U.S. cold storage ware- housing sector, pushing cap rates for class A facilities closer to those of traditional high-quality warehouses. In New Jersey, online grocery sales continue to spur the need for construction and investment in cold storage facilities. However, cold stor- age presents its own unique challenges, according to a new report from CBRE. CBRE’s report, the third and final installment in its Food on Demand series about cold storage, outlines how trends such as the anticipated growth of online grocery sales have narrowed the gap in cap rates between cold storage warehouses and dry-storage facilities to 75 basis points (bps) from 200 bps in the past three years. Cap rates, formally called capitalization rates, measure a property’s annual income

as a percentage of its price. A lower cap rate indicates a higher price. CBRE forecasts that the cap-rate spread be- tween U.S. cold storage real estate and dry storage could narrow further to 25 bps, on par with the spread in leading Asia Pacific markets, as cold- storage cap rates go lower. “The increased demand by consumers for online bever- age and groceries has been the impetus for more cooler/ food storage space in New Jersey, one of the most well- located gateway markets serving millions of shoppers in the U.S.,” said Steven Bey- da, senior vice president with CBRE Advisory & Transac- tion Services. “The trend of online ordering, as well as the

investment in new delivery strategies and technologies, will continue to drive demand for cold storage space well into 2020 and beyond.” However, challenges stem- ming from the specialized nature of the sector will continue to restrain ad- ditional growth in transac- tion volume. CBRE’s report points out that available properties are scarce, con- struction is expensive, and the design and operation of these facilities is complex. These challenges are likely to be addressed gradually by growth in the ranks of specialized developers and builders of cold storage as well as additional capital flowing into the industry. 

HILADELPHIA, PA — CBRE has complet- ed the sale and financ- ing of a nine-building medical office portfolio totaling 470,000 s/f located in four states. Chris Bodnar, Lee Asher, Ryan Lindsley and Jordan Selbiger of CBRE’s Health- care Capital Markets team served as advisors for the transaction and sourced the buyer for the portfolio sale. Additionally, Sabrina Solo- miany of CBRE’s Debt & Structured Finance group worked on behalf of the buyer to secure the financing. The buyer, a confidential entity, purchased the property in a sale that closed December 13, 2019. “This portfolio offered the opportunity to buy a critical mass of medical assets with exposure to some of the top health systems in the country, including Advocate Aurora Health, Einstein Health and INOVA Health System,” said Chris Bodnar , vice chairman of Capital Markets for CBRE. The nine-building portfolio included the 95,043 s/f Advo- cate Sherman Medical Build- ing in Elgin, IL, the 36,413 s/f Oak Lawn Medical Building in Oak Lawn, IL, the 60,558 P

S outhern P ennsylvania By Tom Simmons, Mid-Atlantic Region at Kimco Realty Reimagining your Philadelphia retail real estate through mixed-use development


n recent years, the retail and real estate indus- tries have seen a shift

The new mixed-use develop- ment blends urban apart- ment-style living and 100,000 s/f of ground-floor retail, fully leased to notable brands such as Sprouts, Target, PetSmart, Chipotle, Insomnia Cookies, and Starbucks. The Sprouts location, the brand’s first in Philadelphia, incorporates the adaptive reuse of the site’s historic train shed, creating a signature design element while also preserv- ing a piece of local history. Built in 1876 for the Phila- delphia, Wilmington, and Baltimore Railroad Company,

run a quick errand or stop by the office. At Kimco Realty, our portfo- lio is evolving as well. Our Sig- nature Series® properties are the “needle-moving” projects in our portfolio which exem- plify our transformation and highlight our focus on quality, concentration around core MSAs, and growth through redevelopment and develop- ment opportunities. Lincoln Square, located in downtown Philadelphia, is an excellent illustration of complementary uses combining to unlock an asset’s highest and best use.

the freight shed and adjoining head house were situated on the same block next to a pas- senger station built in 1852. The passenger station was a stopping point for the Abra- ham Lincoln funeral train following his assassination in 1865. Residents of the 322-unit apartment building enjoy onsite parking and a foot- ball field-sized community amenity space with grilling areas, a fire pit, a lounge with an outdoor television, an outdoor track, an outdoor dog park, and more. Lincoln

Square also features Lincoln Walk, an open outdoor pedes- trian-friendly area between the residential building and Sprouts. It serves as a connec- tion to the main north-south thoroughfare in Philadelphia, Broad Street, and creates an enjoyable outdoor experience for residents and patrons of the retail. The project’s best- in-class amenity package and walkability to premier Phila- delphia destinations and the SEPTA subway system have been key in attracting resi- dents. Apartment demand re- mains strong in Philadelphia, and this location stands out by bridging the gap between South Philly and Center City. Not too far from Lincoln Square in Ardmore, Penn- sylvania is another Kimco Signature Series ® asset, Sub- urban Square, which is a prime example of what we can do with our real estate. Suburban Square was one of the first shopping centers in the country when it opened in 1928. In 2016, the cen- ter’s nearly 90,000 s/fMacy’s closed as part of the brand’s nationwide closures, provid- ing Kimco the opportunity to not only reimagine the space, but revitalize the landmark destination with modern day amenities and tenants to reflect the new retail land- scape. Kimco set out on a multi-year transformation of Suburban Square through an all-encompassing redevelop- ment program. In its entirety, the redevelopment program includes new parking, beau- tification efforts, and the addition of a diverse roster of dining, retail, and health and beauty services options, all of which combine to cre- ate an unparalleled shopping and lifestyle experience along Philadelphia’s Main Line. Our latest renovations in- clude the construction of Station Row – a new mixed- use structure that features 20,000 s/f of street-level re- tail, 17,000 s/f of second- floor office space, and sev- eral restaurant spaces with outdoor dining patios and a new public plaza. We’ve also started the next part of the entitlement process to add 150 market-rate apartments and an additional 12,000 s/f of retail on the property, and hope to break ground in early 2021. Overall, Suburban Square is the project that continued on page 12C

Sil- ver is the highest award given for an unbuilt project. “Our goal was to provide this religious community with not only a home, but a space that supports the serenity of their faith,” said Adam Montal- bano, AIA , partner at Moto. Named for Fr. Pedro Arrupe, a Jesuit priest whose cause for canonization opened this year, the residence is located near City Line Avenue on the western edge of Philadelphia. When completed in summer 2020, it will be home to 15 Jesuit priests who work and teach at the University, St. Joseph’s Preparatory School, and the Gesu School. “The project is a successful investigation about light and materiality,” said Juan Miro, FAIA , member of the Awards P

ALA CYNWYD, PA — Newmark Knight Frank’s (NKF) greater Philadelphia Capital Markets team comprising Mike Margolis, Dave Dolan and Dave Garonzik , along with local market expert, Jeff Mack, have completed the sale of 130 Monument Rd. in Bala Cynwyd.

apartments, along with a parking garage and leasing office. The site sits directly on Monument Rd., providing un- matched regional connectivity with tremendous access to ma- jor Rd.ways such as City Ave., I-76, and US-1. Residents will be a short walk away from shopping and dining, along with nearby transportation from SEPTA’s regional rail station. Bala Cynwyd lies directly on the City Ave. Cor- ridor, Philadelphia’s “Golden Mile.” Adjacent to Center City with thriving demographics, this location has evolved into a surging urban/suburban

CBRE net lease team closes 2019 with sales volume up 31% 2018 PHILADELPHIA , PA — CBRE announced that Matthew Gorman, Michael Shover, Thomas Finnegan and Robert Thompson —the Philadelphia-based arm of CBRE’s Net-Lease Properties team— closed 62 properties in 2019, totaling more than $329 million, which is a 31% increase in dollar volume over 2018. The team is well-positioned to have another milestone year in 2020, with over 60 properties currently on the market and nine under contract, equaling nearly $240 million. Completed 2019 transac- tions, most of which are clas- sified as “net lease,” were a mix of restaurants, conve- nience stores/gas stations, multi-tenant centers, discount stores, auto parts stores, bank branches and drug stores, spanning across 13 states. The property sales included 13 gas/ convenience and auto stores, 10 discount stores and 11 res- taurants. Noteworthy transac- tions included the $24 million sale of the Wawa and Davita located in the Public Ledger Building in Philadelphia; LA Fitness in Fort Washington, PA which sold for more than $9 million; and a $4.2 million McDonald’s sale in Wyomiss- ing, PA. “The net lease market had a sluggish start in 2019 due to higher interest rates in comparison to today,” said Gorman, senior vice president, CBRE. “2020 is starting in a much better position, so we’re very optimistic about this year.”  130 Monument Rd. will ex- perience an accelerated lease- up period and the investor will be able to garner premium rents due to the heavy sup- ply-constrained location. At $43,416 per unit, 130 Monu- ment Rd. was one of the high- est price-per-unit development sales in the last seven years among suburban multifam- ily land sale comparables, emphasizing the demand for luxury apartments in one of Philadelphia’s premiere live, work, play environments.  environment, with a large employment base, walkable amenities and a flourishing residential community.
