Orlando ranks among the fastest growing cities in the United States in terms of job growth, economy and population growth. SouthPark Center has been a top destination for major corporate tenants even throughout the pandemic when high quality office space witnessed a strong demand. Recent amenity upgrades have improved the property’s exceptional position in a broader market. SouthPark Center satisfies the requirements for business tenants engaged in a range of sectors, including hospitality, pharmaceuticals, travel, defense, logistics and transportation.
“We have successfully followed up on our entry into the US property market in March this year. PPF Real Estate continues to expand geographically and diversify its portfolio. The US market offers a number of attractive opportunities, and we are now looking into various options to rapid grow our portfolio while diversifying into new asset classes and pursuing development opportunities,” said Aaron Smith, Managing Director, PPF Real Estate USA.
PPF Group, the parent company of PPF Real Estate USA, operates globally in several markets. Through its US businesses, striving to set examples as valuable corporate members of their communities, PPF also seeks to support transatlantic business cooperation. The entry into the Florida real estate market builds on the PPF’s earlier US investments, including a biotech arm SOTIO in Massachusetts and real estate investments in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
As with PPF Real Estate’s first US acquisition, the Mansell Overlook office park in Atlanta, Cushman & Wakefield handled the SouthPark transaction, including advising PPF on the acquisition financing. The SouthPark transaction exceeds USD 315 million in value.
