Winter Garden building revamped as medical village in 5 months, sells for $5.4M

Orlando-based Majors Investments bought a vacant commercial building in Winter Garden in May for $2.2 million, pumped another $2 million into its redevelopment as a multi-tenant medical village in recent months, sold it for $5.4 million on Nov. 5 and is now seeking similar distressed assets to buy, the company's president and CEO told GrowthSpotter.

Located at 1201 E. Plant St., the 20,651-square-foot commercial building sits on 6.43 acres, and is already full leased.

In roughly five months, Majors Investments was able to renovate the building's interior and fill it with tenants like a call center for Community Health Centers, a dialysis center, doctors offices, Genesis Reference Labs and a dermatologist.

"We've done this on about 10 properties already in the region, and in this case turned a struggling property into a vibrant medical village," said Tim Majors. "We are looking for similar properties in the area, no smaller than 20,000 square feet, which gives us a building size that can bring in various specialties. We create this sort of internal-referring medical village where doctors support each other, and it's a one-stop-shop for patients."

A division of Majors Investments has been created specifically for this growing focus of the company on revamping professional buildings as medical villages.

Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Healthcare Trust Inc. bought the Winter Park building for $5.4 million. CHC owns three other healthcare-related professional buildings in the Orlando area and is a publicly traded REIT that focuses on smaller medical office properties in non-urban markets.
