Investors Pay Over $50 Million for Coral Gables Office Building

South Florida Business Journal, by Brian Bandell – August 22nd, 2023


A parthership between Lndmrk Development, Terranova Corp. and Torose Equities acquired the 255 Alhambra office building.

A source close to the deal said the price was more than $50 million, but the parties didn’t announce it. The deed has yet to be filed in county records.
RREEF America REIT II Corp., a fund managed by Deutsche Bank, sold the 220,000-square-foot office building and its parking deck at 255 Alhambra Circle to the local developers.

The property was last traded for $59.9 million in 2006, so it sold for either a slight discount or basically broke even.


Terra & Terranova Sell Former PepsiCo Bottling Plant in Doral, Florida for $55 Million

MIAMI, FL – February 8, 2021 – Three years after purchasing PepsiCo’s regional headquarters and distribution facility in Doral, Florida, Terra and Terranova Corporation, led by David Martin and Stephen Bittel respectively, have sold the 23.7 acre site for $55 million. Terra and Terranova initially acquired the site for $40 million in January 2018 and subsequently leased the property back to PepsiCo through July of 2020. The transaction, which represents a price of $2.3 million per acre of land, marks a top price for industrial real estate in South Florida.

The buyer shares a Santa Monica address with GLP Capital Partners, or GCP, an investment firm that specializes in logistics properties. The company is led by Alan Yang, the former chief investment officer of Singaporean global investment manager GLP.

The sale coincides with South Florida’s emergence as one of the country’s top-performing industrial real estate markets. The market has been fueled in large part by the growth of e-commerce, with more than 2 million square feet of space leased by e-commerce companies in 2020.

Located at 7777 Northwest 41st Street, the 23.7 acre site benefits from proximity to the South Florida region’s major expressways, offers direct frontage along the Palmetto Expressway, is located less than two miles from Miami International Airport, and is a short drive from some of Miami-Dade County’s largest and most in-demand residential and commercial submarkets. The property is zoned for industrial development and can accommodate up to 500,000 square feet of commercial space.
