Financiers buy Summerlin health-club building for $51 million

Illinois investors have paid big dollars for a once-abandoned Summerlin health-club building.

Inland Private Capital Corp. paid $51 million for the Life Time Athletic center near Red Rock Resort, county records reveal. The transaction closed last month.

The sales price was the greatest nationally this year for a freestanding, single-tenant retail structure, according to Faris Lee Investments broker Patrick Luther, who represented the seller.

Investors are paying rising costs for Las Vegas business homes, though it’s all but unusual to pay nationally high quantities amid the enhancing but still delaying regional economy. The valley’s unemployment rate, 7 percent since August, has been chopped in half because the depths of the economic downturn but stays greatest among big U.S. metro areas, federal data show.

Furthermore, the purchase marks a drastic turnaround for the high end fitness center. Designer Life Time Physical fitness Inc. halted building throughout the economic crisis last years, leaving the 6-acre, partially built building to gather dust on busy Charleston Boulevard.

“At one point, they weren’t even going to finish this,” Luther said.

Life Time, which sold the building in June to the business that turned it to Inland, has a 20-year lease in Summerlin and is paying almost $3 million a year in rent. The health club has 9,000 members, according to Luther, and sits in among Southern Nevada’s a lot of affluent neighborhoods.

The facility boasts a 143,000-square-foot primary structure; a multilevel parking garage; an indoor swimming pool, a soccer field, sport courts and a climbing wall; an outside pool with water slides; a health spa and beauty parlor; and a cafe, Faris Lee marketing products show.

Minnesota-based Life Time operates 117 centers in the United States and Canada– including one in Henderson that opened last year– under its Life Time Physical fitness and Life Time Athletic brands. Efforts to speak to a company agent about the Summerlin deal were not successful Monday.

The seller, New York-based Gramercy Building Trust, got the facility as part of a $300 million, 10-property buy from Life Time; the health-club chain leased back the fitness centers as part of the offer.

Gramercy’s sale to Inland closed Sept. 16.

Inland, part of the powerhouse Inland Property Group of Cos. in Oak Brook, Ill., is no complete stranger to Las Vegas retail. A previous affiliate in late 2012, for example, bought a bulk stake in 6 Southern Nevada shopping mall from developer Terri Sturm, creator of Area Inc., for almost $300 million.

Inland agents did not respond Monday to requests for remark.

The Summerlin gym, 10721 W. Charleston Blvd., opened in 2011. However before that, like many other real estate jobs in town, it got mothballed after the economy tanked.

Life Time began building in October 2008, shortly after the U.S. monetary crisis started, and disengaged by April 2009. The business resumed building by September 2010.

Brighter days are in forecast for One Summerlin building

A take a look at One Summerlin workplace tower, 1980 Celebration Plaza Drive, on Monday, Sept. 7, 2015, at Downtown Summerlin.

Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015|2 a.m.

Las Vegas’ office market is still plunging from the economic downturn, and at first glimpse, the pricey new structure in Downtown Summerlin seems bogged down with it.

The office sector has an about 20 percent vacancy rate, greater than all other types of office building, and the nine-story building in the middle of the outside shopping mall at Sahara Opportunity and the 215 Beltway is simply 54 percent rented.

But according to management and other realty pros, the once-mothballed structure is prospering, considering the market it remains in.

“It behaves to see that they’re getting some very good numbers out there,” said Cathy Jones, owner of brokerage company Sun Commercial Property.

The office building, called One Summerlin, has some of the more costly rental rates in the valley, and unlike other homes that command top-dollar, it’s not centrally located near the Strip and McCarran International Airport. With workplace construction slow-going, it’s also one of simply a handful of higher-quality, speculative workplace projects to just recently open or be underway.

It opened in April, months after the retail space debuted last fall at the 106-acre Downtown Summerlin, and management intends to have the structure totally rented by next summertime.

Designer Howard Hughes Corp. disclosed the current leasing overall in a report last month. It likewise stated that 82 percent of Downtown Summerlin’s retail area had actually been rented.

“We’re really pleased with the results up until now,” said Kevin Orrock, president of the Summerlin master-planned community for Howard Hughes, when asked about the workplace tower.

Listing broker Randy Broadhead stated the building is “exceeding the market,” and that if anybody asked him 2 years back– around the time Howard Hughes revived the mixed-use task– how much area he ‘d rent out before One Summerlin opened, he ‘d have said “no.”

“As you know, this is not an excellent market in general,” stated Broadhead, a senior vice president with CBRE Group. “A lot of property managers are struggling.”

One Summerlin has a smaller sized swimming pool of possible tenants than other homes, in part because of its price, said broker Dan Palmeri, a director with Cushman & & Wakefield Commerce Realty Solutions.

Monthly rents range between $3.10 and $3.20 per square foot, Broadhead stated. That’s well above the valley-wide average of $2.62 for other Class An area, as well as further above the marketplace average of $1.91 for all space, according to brokerage firm Colliers International.

There is adequate parking at Downtown Summerlin, but neither a garage nor a parking lot is adjacent to the workplace building, and that was “practically a deal-killer” for among Palmeri’s customers, he stated. However what the structure does not have in easy parking, it comprises “big time” with facilities, he said.

If a developer opened the very same tower without as numerous stores and dining establishments nearby, “I don’t believe you ‘d be even near that number,” he said of the leasing overall.

Developer Jeff LaPour completed a three-story office structure in the southwest valley in October 2008– the month after Lehman Brothers broke down, helping set off the nationwide financial crisis. He had figured it would take about a year and a half to rent all the area, however it ended up taking 2 1/2 years.

LaPour sold the structure, totally inhabited, last year for $17.35 million.

He said One Summerlin is a relatively low-risk job, considered that it’s owned by an openly traded company– Dallas-based Howard Hughes had a stock-market value of $4.9 billion as of Friday– and is “a small part of a very big task.”

Still, he stated the lease-up reveals “the value” of a mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly development, and management is landing big rents without providing numerous giving ins, such as cash for interior work or months of totally free lease, as property managers frequently carry out in Las Vegas.

“They’re succeeding,” he said.

Asked if he’s providing those perks, Orrock said, “We’re competitive, but we likewise have an extremely unique item.”

For many years, that product was a deserted steel skeleton, among the most visible scars of Las Vegas’ property bust.

Previous owner General Development Characteristic mothballed the retail and workplace task– then known as Shops at Summerlin Centre– throughout the monetary crisis in fall 2008. The partly constructed building sat untouched till Howard Hughes, a sequel from General Development, resumed building in 2013.

The brand-new owners most likely didn’t believe Las Vegas required another workplace structure, however considering that they wished to finish the mall, they “had to do something” with the workplace structure, stated John Stater, Las Vegas research supervisor for Colliers.

The economy is recuperating but “not on fire,” Stater said, and although leases are being signed and property owners are raising rents a bit, he’s not seeing “an explosion in need” for offices.

In the middle of the bloated job rate, there isn’t really much speculative office construction nowadays, but Howard Hughes has actually had “respectable demand in general,” said Brian Gordon, a principal with Applied Analysis.

“These things require time,” Gordon said.

One renter is contractor William Lyon Houses, which is leasing about 15,000 square feet on the fifth floor and about 6,000 square feet of retail space in Downtown Summerlin for a design studio.

The business had actually remained in an office near McCarran airport for 18 years, when trying to find a brand-new one, executives wanted “an area that shows” the company which had area close by for a design studio, Nevada division president Mary Connelly said.

She looked at a variety of options but “everything else faded in contrast” to Downtown Summerlin, she said. Buyers see the design studio, and she said her employees “are delighted” with the features.

Connelly likewise stated it was “kind of weird” strolling to a dark car park after work at the old workplace.

“There’s life here,” she stated.

Summerlin land rates are up, however sales are down in recent months

Summerlin land sales slipped in recent months, a new report shows, but the increasing prices remained well above the Las Vegas Valley’s average.

Howard Hughes Corp., developer of the 22,500-acre neighborhood, sold 58.1 acres of land in the quarter ending June 30, down 7 percent from the exact same period in 2013, the company said Monday.

It offered the land for about $36.2 million, down 4.5 percent from a year previously.

The drop in sales came amid increasing costs, with buyers paying $622,000 per acre last quarter, up 2.5 percent year-over-year.

Almost all the deals included land for home building.

Summerlin is the largest master-planned community in the valley. It’s likewise among the most upscale and popular locations to live, with about 105,400 homeowners at the end of 2014, according to Howard Hughes, or about 5 percent of Clark County’s population.

The community, which runs along the western rim of the valley, had virtually 5,500 acres of developable land by Dec. 31. The bulk of that– some 4,600 acres– was for housing.

Dallas-based Howard Hughes reported the recent land sales as part of its second-quarter revenues report. The business reserved $50.6 million in revenue, compared to a $14.7 million loss a year earlier.

Regardless of the sliding sales totals in Summerlin, land values there still far exceeded those in other parts of the valley.

Buyers got 1,224 acres in Southern Nevada through June this year for $262 million, according to Colliers International, a typical cost of about $214,000 per acre.

At the same time, Howard Hughes likewise reported Monday that at Downtown Summerlin, its 106-acre shopping and office complex at Sahara Opportunity and the 215 Beltway, 82 percent of the approximately 818,500 square feet of retail area is leased.

It also said that 54 percent of the job’s nine-story, 206,300-square-foot workplace tower, dubbed One Summerlin, is leased.

The project formerly referred to as the Shops at Summerlin Centre– which had been mothballed, partly built, by previous owners in fall 2008, throughout the united state monetary meltdown– opened this past October.

Summerlin land rates keep increasing, however homebuilders aren’t shying away

L.E. Baskow

Land prices are increasing in Summerlin, consisting of the location within the Delano advancement off South Fox Hillside Drive, revealed Thursday, May 14, 2015.

Friday, May 15, 2015|2 a.m.

Homebuilder Kent Lay understands all too well that Summerlin land isn’t really low-cost. His company, Woodside Residences, is paying double exactly what it did a few years back.

It’s not alone. Land costs have been climbing up at a faster rate in the stretching Las Vegas neighborhood than in the valley at huge, with the gap growing even broader in recent months.

Summerlin land rates rose 31 percent in the very first quarter from a year earlier, while prices valleywide fell 34 percent in that time.

Summerlin Land Prices rising
Land prices are rising in Summerlin like this area off of S. Fox Hill Drive, making them far more expensive that land around the valley on Thursday, May 14, 2015. L.E. BaskowIntroduce slideshow “

The price jumps are slowing land sales but by no means frightening contractors, who invest huge dollars tying up land in the 22,500-acre task, among the most upscale and popular places to live in Southern Nevada.

High-end home builder Toll Brothers, for instance, shelled out almost $45 million last succumb to about 111 acres near Bishop Gorman High School, where it prepares to develop a 55-and-older community.

“The (land) values in Summerlin deserve it; it is such a premier place,” stated Mary Connelly, Nevada department president for William Lyon Houses, a longtime Summerlin contractor.

However, the greater land prices will only make brand-new homes more expensive, and parcels might get too pricey for builders to turn a profit, potentially slowing property development there and fueling building in less expensive communities.

“It’s ideal on that cusp now to make these deals work,” stated Lay, Las Vegas department president for Woodside.

Investors bought 46 acres in Summerlin in the very first quarter, down 11 percent from the very same time in 2014, and paid approximately $715,000 an acre, up 31 percent, according to Dallas-based Howard Hughes Corp., the community’s developer. Homebuilders purchased practically all of that.

Summerlin buyers paid an average of $518,000 per acre in 2013, up 46 percent from 2013. However sales volume fell 12 percent to 280 acres, “primarily” since of greater costs, Howard Hughes CEO David Weinreb just recently said.

He’s not anticipating rates to keep increasing at the very same speed, but he doesn’t believe they’ll drop, either. Howard Hughes executives figure Summerlin land costs will “stabilize,” Weinreb stated, including “the current level appears to be sustainable.”

“We’re selling everything we put out for sale,” task President Kevin Orrock stated.

And there’s plenty left. Summerlin, which started materializing in 1990, is a long way from being fully built, with a forecasted conclusion date of 2039.

The community– which runs along the western rim of the Las Vegas Valley and is known for its parks, tracks, high end houses and distance to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Location– is prepared for more than 200,000 residents. By the end of 2014, it had approximately 105,400 individuals, as well as 4,600 acres of readily available domestic land and 850 acres of commercial land.

However, Orrock’s group keeps prices high by snugly managing and restricting the land they sell.

They don’t flood the market and push rates down on themselves; instead, they typically put specific homes up for bid to certain groups of home builders.

Company officials “keep supply and demand in check to keep prices up,” and they could have finished the job now if they wanted to offer cheap, stated land broker and financier Scott Gragson of Colliers International.

Howard Hughes likewise has a clause in its agreements with builders that lets it buy back undeveloped land. This avoids contractors from selling parcels and possibly driving down Howard Hughes’ prices.

“I wish to regulate the market here; I do not desire a builder to control my market,” Orrock said.

On the other hand, it’s a different situation throughout the valley. Land sales increased quick in current months as costs plunged.

Investors bought nearly 900 acres in Southern Nevada in the very first quarter this year, up 21 percent from the very same time in 2014. They paid approximately nearly $190,000 per acre, down 34 percent from a year previously, according to Colliers.

Prior to costs dropped, Southern Nevada homebuilders purchased land rapidly the previous couple of years, pushing up values, CBRE Group broker Keith Spencer said. This especially sped up after Clark County commissioners in spring 2013 opened about 3,600 acres, primarily in southwest Las Vegas, to prospective development by reducing McCarran International Airport’s noise shape.

However new-home sales have actually slowed from a few years back, and today, builders aren’t spending cash packing up on land they won’t establish anytime soon.

“It’s a hunger problem,” Spencer said.

In their absence, speculators have actually been purchasing big amounts of land and, as an outcome, getting more affordable costs, he stated.

Southern Nevada contractors sold about 6,000 brand-new houses in 2014, down 18 percent from 2013, according to Las Vegas-based Builders Research study.

The drop-off was even larger in Summerlin. The job was the No. 15-selling master-planned community in the nation in 2014 with 437 sales, however that was down 23 percent from 2013, according to property consulting firm RCLCO.

However, tips are getting this year, with local builders selling about 1,380 homes in the first quarter, up 8 percent from the same period last year.

And it’s rebounding even quicker in Summerlin, with new-home sales up 46 percent year-over-year, Orrock stated.

Contractors will not pay any rate for land in Summerlin, however they’ll keep spending as long as they can keep selling homes at high-enough costs, said Dennis Smith, president of Home Builders Research study.

And, as residents understand, it’s not low-cost to live there. Home builders’ mean base cost in Summerlin is $519,950– two-thirds higher than the typical list prices of all new houses in Southern Nevada, Smith’s business says.

All informed, Summerlin land is easily some of the most pricey in the valley, if not the most costly outside the Strip, which’s unlikely to alter anytime quickly.

“If you take a look at the other (master-planned communities), which one would even come close?” Smith said. “None.”
