The Offices at University Hills

The note for University Hills was purchased in 2012, and we foreclosed on the property in 2013. When purchased, occupancy at the property was approximately 80%, but rental rates were in the low teens. Through substantial improvements to the building systems, common areas, and tenant spaces, the building now commands rates exceeding $30/SF, and is nearly fully occupied. The Offices at University Hills buildings is a well­ located and well-diversified asset, purchased out of distress, and typifies the type of assets Fairbairn Commercial is successful in finding.
