ACAS Real Estate Holding

Overview

4922 E 49th Street, Cuyahoga Heights, Ohio, a 300,000 square foot building that went into receivership with Neyer Management after the owner/private equity firm ceased operations, closed its doors, and was liquidated.

Requirement

A special servicer was put in place on behalf of the lender/note holder for the building. Along with Neyer, Terry Coyne was hired to lease or sell the 300,000 square foot building at a price that was acceptable to the special servicer.

Challenge

The building was originally built for Cotton Club Soda as a bottling manufacturing plant. Varying ceiling heights, multiple demising walls, minimal docks for the large size, and located in a more residential area, were only a few of the hurdles that made the disposition of the building a challenge for the team.

"The listing of this building had a lot of uncertainty and parties involved. We knew we had to hire a knowledgeable, 'get-it-done broker' in order to have all players satisfied at the end of the day. Terry helped us accomplish our goal and we would not hesitate to use him with other projects in Northeast Ohio."

- David Elson, President, Neyer Management

 

Solution

Multiple users were interested in the building at the beginning of the listing period. When prospects hear the word "special servicer" many were worried about the complexity of a lease. This was not the case. Terry had to lease or sell the building at a market price to get approval from the servicer.

Result

Due to the high demand by mid-size users, Terry approached a large local developer/owner, Premier Development Partners, regarding their interest in purchasing the building to make the investment to multi-tenant the building. Terry and Neyer were able to negotiate with Premier and close quickly on the building getting close to the asking price.
