Two Greenville Office Towers Sold

By

two soldLingerfelt CommonWealth Partners, LLC today announced the acquisition of One Liberty Square and Two Liberty Square, a pair of office towers in downtown Greenville, S.C.

The Liberty Square towers, located at 55 and 77 Beattie Place, are in the heart of Greenville’s revitalized and thriving business district. The buildings total 445,612 square feet and are currently 81% occupied to a diverse tenant base anchored by Resurgent Capital; Shellpoint Mortgage Servicing; Gallivan, White & Boyd; Dority & Manning; and Commerce Club, among others. One and Two Liberty Square were constructed in 1983 and 1986, respectively, and received extensive multimillion-dollar renovations in 2006 and 2014.

“We have been evaluating Greenville and the greater Upstate area for several years,” said Ryan Lingerfelt, President and CIO of Lingerfelt CommonWealth. “Greenville continues to show strengthening fundamentals, particularly downtown, which has experienced seven consecutive years of positive net absorption, strong rental rate growth, and low vacancy rates.”

“The Liberty Square acquisition fits perfectly within our value-added strategy of acquiring high-quality real estate in strong secondary and tertiary markets like Greenville,” Lingerfelt added. “The occupancy rate of the towers is expected to drop to approximately 70% after a larger tenant vacates nearly 50,000 square feet, thereby allowing us the unique opportunity to go to market offering some of the largest and most attractive blocks of space in downtown Greenville where vacancy rates continue to decline and new supply is limited.”

Lingerfelt CommonWealth will operate the assets via its vertically integrated operating platform. Commonwealth Commercial Partners, the Company’s property management affiliate, will handle all aspects of the day-to-day asset and property management. CBRE will continue to handle the leasing and marketing.
