HUNTER BROKERS $13.3 MILLION SALE OF HILTON BIRMINGHAM PERIMETER PARK BIRMINGHAM, ALA. — Hunter Hotel Advisors has brokered the sale of the 205-room Hilton Birmingham Perimeter Park in Birmingham. The buyer, Atlanta-based Peachtree Ho- tel Group, purchased the eight-story hotel with plans to invest $10.5 mil- lion to renovate and reposition the property into a DoubleTree by Hil- ton hotel. The sales price and seller were undisclosed, but the Birming- ham Business Journal reports the sale price as nearly $13.3 million. ALPHARETTA, GA. — Rubenstein Partners LP, along with a minority eq- uity partner, has purchased Sanctuary Park, a 1.6 million-square-foot office park complex located in the northern Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta, for $265 million. The joint venture purchased the asset from J.P. Morgan. (NYSE: JPM), according to the Atlanta Busi- ness Chronicle. Sanctuary Park has been institu- tionally owned, developed and main- tained for nearly 20 years. The proper- ty comprises nine mid-rise buildings within a 152-acre, master-planned campus, which features three zoned development sites that can accommo- date an additional 750,000 square feet of build-to-suit office space. Sanctuary Park is currently 96 per- cent leased to tenants that include Delta Dental Insurance, Coca-Cola, Ernst & Young, Ciena Corp., Lease- Plan and Verizon Wireless. Verizon is expected to vacate its office space at the campus in the near future, which will lower Sanctuary Park's occupan- cy to approximately 75 percent. Onsite amenities at Sanctuary Park include three conference centers, a training room, two full-service cafes, two fitness centers, softball field and pavilion, two gated park entrances, complimentary shuttle service to and from the North Springs MARTA sta- tion and secured building access. Will Yowell, Justin Parsonnet and Jay O'Meara of CBRE marketed the property on behalf of J.P. Morgan. The joint venture worked closely with Patterson Advisory Group to arrange the acquisition financing. Jeff Bellamy and Adam Viente of JLL have been re- tained to lease Sanctuary Park. Since its founding, Rubenstein Part- ners has invested in more than 10 mil- lion square feet of office real estate assets on behalf of its investors and clients.
