Bucks County office complex sees flurry of leases, nears full occupancy

Biohaven Pharmaceuticals Inc. has leased 21,000 square feet at Makefield Crossing to establish a new, Philadelphia-area presence, and is part of several other deals signed at the Bucks County office complex that chips away at its vacancy.

Ten deals totaling nearly 100,000 square feet were signed at the Bucks County office complex, bringing its occupancy to the low 90% range. When Rubenstein Partners bought the eight-building in 2018 the 467,000-square-foot property was nearly 80% occupied.
Rents have also been on the rise as occupancy has risen. Deals are being signed in the low to mid-$30s a square foot compared with the mid- to high $20s a square foot, said Lou Merlini, a vice president at Philadelphia-based Rubenstein Partners.
Rubenstein has launched a $10 million interior and exterior upgrade as part of an effort to enhance the property cosmetically and provide a series of amenities to retain and attract tenants to the property. Rubenstein paid $85 million for the properties.
Makefield Crossing North consists of five office buildings totaling 190,183 square feet at 1010, 1020, 1030, 1040 and 1050 Stony Hill Road. Makefield Crossing South consists of four office buildings, of which Rubenstein bought three buildings totaling 276,533 square feet at 770, 790 and 800 Township Line Road.
Rubenstein’s plan is to position the property as two separate campuses and each will get a series of renovations. At the north campus, an asphalt parking area in front of the buildings will be replaced with a courtyard that will be activated with seating, food trucks and activities. New landscaping and signage will also be incorporated.
On the interior, lobbies, restrooms and common areas will be renovated and a cafe, lounge, conference area and fitness center will be added and will serve the north campus. The renovations are expected to be completed by this summer. “It’s coming together nicely,” Merlini said.
Biohaven Pharmaceuticals is one of three large deals to get completed at the complex. It is a New Haven, Connecticut, biopharmaceutical company that targets neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases, including rare disorders. The company couldn’t be reached for comment on why it established a Philadelphia-area office or the number of jobs it might produce locally.

In addition to Biohaven, Cello Health renewed and expanded into 22,000 square feet and Jubilant Pharma renewed and expanded into 22,000 square feet. In addition, several undisclosed tenants renewed and expanded, helping to push the vacancy down.

Center City Philadelphia Office Landlords Not Afraid to Ask for More

Given the city’s notorious wage tax and slow-but-steady pace of office leasing, Center City Philadelphia office owners aren’t used to seeing their market listed at the top of the charts in national rankings. This is particularly the case given that the list of office tenants moving into Center City, while growing, is still somewhat limited.

However, Center City Philadelphia’s office market does stand out nationally for its low average vacancy, minimal new construction and a surge in college-educated residents moving into the Philadelphia area’s urban core. These trends are providing local office landlords and brokers the pricing power they need to raise asking rents at some of the fastest rates of any major central business district in the U.S.

The chart above draws on more than 5,400 office space listings with asking rents that have been posted on CoStar since the beginning of 2019. In order to provide a clearer picture of where office landlords are more bullish versus more bearish, this analysis focused on office listings that either increased or decreased their asking rent. Other changes in term or service types, for example from gross rent to triple net, were excluded.

The key takeaway: Office landlords and brokers have raised asking rents by 5% or more on a third of the office space listings in Philadelphia’s Market Street West and Market Street East submarkets since the beginning of last year, while almost no landlords lowered listed rents. The strong average increases in asking rents outshine central business districts in many of the country’s largest cities including New York, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco.

This is one of the factors that appealed to investors who made large Center City Philadelphia office acquisitions over the past two years.

Manhattan-based Silverstein Properties and locally based Arden Group were responsible for last year’s largest Center City office acquisition, with their joint-venture purchase of the trophy-class BNY Mellon Center for $451.6 million, or $351 per square foot.

“When we acquired 1735 Market we knew that we were getting the premier multi-tenant office building in the city in the best location at 18th & Market St. directly across the street from the Comcast world headquarters,” Arden Group CEO Craig Spencer said in a statement provided to CoStar. “Combining the iconic trophy quality of the property with Philadelphia’s dynamic job growth, millennial population growth and residential migration into Center City has created an exciting environment where we have been able to grow rents much faster than we initially anticipated.”

Silverstein’s Executive Vice President of Leasing Jeremy Moss echoed those sentiments.

“We and our partners at Arden Group and Migdal love Philadelphia for a lot of reasons,” he said. “The city has a fantastic lifestyle that is attracting young, creative people to live and work here. It has some of the country’s top colleges and universities and is strategically located between Washington, D.C. and New York City. The bottom line is that Philadelphia is a global destination that continues to attract leading businesses and their employees. Growth in office rents is a natural byproduct of the city’s continued growth and success.”

Meanwhile, Philadelphia’s notoriously high construction labor costs have helped to keep the amount of new office space coming to market to a minimum. This restrained growth in new office supply is likely another key contributor to rising asking rents.

However, high construction costs also mean increased tenant improvement allowances, which have partially offset the market’s recent rent gains.

“Five years ago, the average 10-year Class A office deal was getting around $50 per square foot in tenant improvement allowances, ” said Lisa DeNight, Newmark Knight Frank’s research manager for the Greater Philadelphia Region. “Now, that figure is looking more like $65 to $80 because of rising construction costs and sophistication of desired tenant build-outs. While we’ve seen great rent gains across the city’s office inventory, effective rates – what landlords are taking in after TI and concessions have been factored out – have seen more muted growth.”

Center City Outperforms the Suburbs as Philadelphia’s Office Market Enters 2020

Philadelphia’s office market rounded out a great year in 2019, with vacancies holding near 20-year lows, and rent growth clocking in at 4%. But beneath the market level statistics, a noticeable divide in performance between Center City and the suburbs exists.

Urban core submarkets, including University City and Market Street West, remain well tied to emerging industries that drive leasing, including life sciences and co-working. At the close of 2019, the percentage of investment-grade office space listed as available for lease in these submarkets reached the lowest levels ever recorded since CoStar began tracking availability listings in 2005.

Trends are noticeably different in the suburbs. The Main Line maintains a drum-tight vacancy rate of 5%. However, at the end of 2019, the gap in availabilities rates between the Market Street West/University City area and Philadelphia’s suburbs was the widest recorded in more than 15 years.

Our latest Philadelphia office market video update dives into these trends in more detail, to help investors understand opportunities and risks emerging in 2020.

Another Navy Yard building trades for $61.2M

As part of its divestment in office properties, Liberty Property Trust has closed on the sale of a building that houses Axalta Coating Systems Ltd.’s Global Innovation Center at the Philadelphia Navy Yard for $61.2 million.
Apex Capital Management, a subsidiary of Dimah Capital of Kuwait, bought the building at 1050 Constitution Ave. The sale breaks down to about $350 per square foot.
Foreign investment in properties at the Navy Yard, Center City and the Philadelphia suburbs has risen over the years. For example, the purchase of Mellon Bank Center involved Israeli money as part of the financial stack and was part of a trend in the region of overseas money finding a place in domestic and Philadelphia real estate.
Axalta Coating (NYSE: AXATA) moved in the fall of 2018 more than 200 engineers and scientists that were located in Wilmington into the new 175,000-square-foot research facility developed for the company at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Axalta signed a 20-year lease that expires in 2037.
It was one of the properties Liberty had planned to sell as it unloaded the remainder of its office holdings to concentrate on the industrial sector. Liberty was sold to Prologis Inc. in a deal that closed on Monday. Prologis is expected to sell any remaining office or non-core properties that it inherited from Liberty.
Referred to as the Axalta Global Innovation Center, it is the largest such facility the company has and is believed to be the largest coatings R&D center in the world.
The buildings Liberty has sold recently at the Navy Yard have traded for top dollar. For example, in 2018, an affiliate of Korea Investment Management Co. Ltd. paid $130.5 million for the office building that houses GlaxoSmithKline at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. More recently, Norvin Healthcare paid $65 million, or $682 a square foot, for Three Crescent Drive, a 96,000-square-foot building that is fully leased on a long-term basis by Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals Inc. at the Philadelphia Navy Yard.

Law firm lease clears way for Center City’s first non-Comcast office tower in a generation

Law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP is moving from Center City’s core business district near City Hall to a new custom-built $200 million home near the banks of the Schuylkill, a hopeful sign in a city that has seen little ground-up office construction despite demand for commercial space.

Morgan Lewis has signed a lease to become the sole occupant of what’s being called 2222 Market, a 19-story, 305,000-square-foot tower to be built for the law firm at 23rd and Market Streets, developer Parkway Corp. said Monday.

The project will be Center City’s first non-Comcast Corp.-related commercial office building in more than 20 years, as developers struggle to build in a city where rents make it hard to justify the cost of new construction.

Parkway aims to begin construction this summer to allow Morgan Lewis to take occupancy in 2023.

“I hope it’s a turning point,” Parkway president Robert Zuritsky said.

Office buildings have continued to rise in University City and the Navy Yard, largely aided by Keystone Opportunity Zone tax benefits that help subsidize development at specific sites, but development has been more sluggish in Center City itself.

Citywide, only two office properties are under construction, both of them single-tenant buildings at the Navy Yard.

Center City, meanwhile, has seen just a handful of new buildings since the skyscraper construction boom of the late 1980s and early 1990s, outside of Comcast Corp.’s big headquarters and tech towers.

But developers are increasingly rolling out proposals for new Center City office buildings in hopes that tenants will bite.

Brandywine Realty Trust recently disclosed plans for a 23-story commercial and residential tower on the 2100 block of Market Street, and Parkway itself has been working on another office building proposal on land it owns at 20th and Arch Streets.

With an average office vacancy rate of 9.9%, which is below national levels, demand for new office space should be high in the city.

But “one market fundamental that continues to plague Philadelphia developers is [relatively low] average asking rents,” they said.

Sarah E. Bouchard, Morgan Lewis’ managing partner for the Philadelphia office, said her firm would be paying higher rent at the new bespoke building than at its existing home at 1701 Market St.

Parkway solidified its control over most of the block where the Morgan Lewis headquarters will rise with its 2015 acquisition of several parcels it didn’t already own there from since-deceased real estate investor and porn impresario Richard Basciano.

The long-blighted block included the site of what had been Center City’s last porn theater, the Forum Theatre, which closed in 2012.

Parkway began working on designs for the project about a year ago, as Aramark Corp. and the upscale Fitler Club membership club were moving into the nearby former industrial building at 2400 Market St., which had been overhauled by developer PMC Property Group.

Bouchard said her firm was drawn to the area’s up-and-coming vibe when it was contemplating a move from its current home.

“Where we will be, at 2222 Market, is really developing,” she said. “It’s going to be exciting.”

Akin Gump is taking 30,000 square feet at 1735 Market St. in Philadelphia

A year after purchasing 1735 Market St. in Center City, Silverstein Properties has landed international law firm Akin Gump Strauss as a tenant and expanded one of its long-term tenants in the office building to push the occupancy well north of 90%.

Now at Two Commerce Square, Akin Gump signed a 16-year lease on 30,000 square feet at 1735 Market. Robert Half International renewed and grew to a total of 17,401 square feet from 14,577 square feet on the 25th floor of the building. The human resources consulting firm has been a tenant in 1735 Market since 2001.

“That was our first major lease since acquiring the building,” said Jeremy Moss, executive vice president at Silverstein about Aikin Gump. “We were very excited about that. We were delighted it was a tenant of this size and a tenant of this stature.”

The lease also underscored Silverstein’s thesis of the Philadelphia market and why the New York real estate company decided to enter it with the acquisition of 1735 Market. Silverstein had looked at another office building in Center City but a deal never materialized. It used that experience as a way to learn about the market and it eventually led to the $451 million purchase of the 51-story, 1.3-million-square-foot office tower that it bought in partnership with Arden Group and Migdal Insurance.

“We think Philadelphia is entering a really strong phase for a lot of different reasons,” Moss said.
