Syndicated Equities Sells Bio-Medical Industrial Portfolio in Twin Cities 

Syndicated Equities finalized the sale of the Abbott Laboratories Life Sciences Campus in Minnetonka, MN, within the Twin Cities metro area. Syndicated acquired the portfolio, which originally consisted of short-term leases for 280,289 square feet spread out across five buildings, alongside Eagle Ridge Partners in 2017.  

The portfolio contained certified clean rooms, labs, manufacturing space, as well as office and warehouse space. The acquisition was structured as a Tenancy-In-Common (TIC) to accommodate investors completing a Section 1031 exchange.  

During their ownership, Syndicated and Eagle Ridge negotiated long-term lease renewals for the portfolio, creating significant value for investors. The assets were sold for an undisclosed sum in late July, resulting in a 2.38x equity multiple and 20.71% internal rate of return for Syndicated investors.
