Thiel and Graves represented North Andrews Way Corp. in the purchase of the building in January 2016 from AVS Security Systems, Inc. North Andrews Way Corp. paid $2.35 million.
“When North Andrews Way Corp. took ownership of the asset, many of the property’s tenants were occupying on a month-to-month basis and there were several vacancies,” explained Thiel . “We were able to assist in stabilizing the asset, bringing it to 100% occupancy.”
Berger leased, managed and negotiated the buying and selling of the asset for the client.
“The activity and interest in this asset exemplifies the continued growth and development in the Cypress Creek commercial real estate sub-market, despite COVID-19” added Thiel. “It’s a positive indication that our local market is keeping pace with the strong momentum that has been exhibited regionally in South Florida. This single-story building and its flexible floorplans serve as an attractive investment option and offer great value for tenants in today’s market.”
