Ka'kaako Commerce Center

Upside Through Proactive Management

Kaka’ako Commerce Center – Honolulu, HI

Kaka’ako Commerce Center is a six-story, multi-tenant office and industrial building located in the Kaka’ako submarket of Honolulu, Hawaii. At acquisition, there was only one large tenant, a self-storage operator, while floors 1 through 5 of the building consist of smaller industrial suites, the six floor is built out into smaller office spaces and there is a rooftop parking deck. All floors and most industrial suites have direct vehicle access. The property is very well located between the downtown Honolulu CBD and Waikiki.

Given the property’s superb location between the downtown Honolulu CBD and Waikiki, the property was sold at a premium to a buyer looking to reposition as residential condos.

Front Business Center

Stabilized, Cash-Flow Industrial Project

Front Business Center – Kansas City, MO

Front Business Center is a 274,330 SF, multi-tenant warehouse building that provides an 18’ clear height, 150’ bay depths and 125’ truck court. Its Front Street location is one-half mile east of I-35/I-29 via an existing off-ramp and approximately 3-miles northeast of downtown Kansas City. I-35 is the main north/south running interstate highway in the Kansas City region and the Midwest, traveling from southern Texas through northern Minnesota.

Because of its solid fundamentals and location, RTA was able to increase rates and occupancy and capitalize on Kansas City’s popularity as an industrial investment market.

Belcaro Place

Complete Rebranding, Renovation, and Lease-Up

Belcaro Place – Denver, CO

Belcaro Place was an excellent opportunity to generate strong returns through execution of a building rebranding strategy. The Property, 41% occupied at acquisition, had been severely mismanaged.RTA purchased the property in July 2012 for a 77.6% discount to the 2000 price. The acquisition provided an opportunity to add significant value through renovation, lease-up of the remaining vacancy, and renewing tenants at market rates.

Belcaro experienced over 30% net absorption during the first two years following acquisition, reaching stabilized occupancy in three years.
