New York Life Real Estate Investors Closes on the Acquisition of Weston Pointe in Weston, FL

New York, February 8, 2016—New York Life Real Estate Investors announced today the acquisition, on behalf of the Madison Core Property Fund, of Weston Pointe, a 388,112 square foot institutional quality office park comprised of four buildings located in Weston, Florida.

Built from 1999 to 2006, the property was 99 percent leased at the time of sale and is viewed as a best-in-class asset in one of the most desirable suburban office markets in Broward County. Corporate tenants include Wells Fargo, BB&T, Merrill Lynch, Regus, Ultimate Software and the General Services Administration. The property’s proximity to major South Florida roadways allows employers to draw workers from surrounding counties as well.

“Weston Pointe represents an excellent opportunity to invest in a top tier asset in one of Broward County’s premier submarkets,” said Steven Osborne, senior director at New York Life Real Estate Investors. “With significant capital budgeted to upgrade and to maintain the property, Weston Pointe will be well positioned to take advantage of the increasing demand from companies seeking high quality office space in one of the best locations within the county.” said Kevin Smith, managing director at New York Life Real Estate Investors.
