Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the acquisition financing for Resurgens Plaza, a 402,929-square-foot, 26-story, Class A office tower in the Buckhead submarket of Atlanta, Georgia. The property is being acquired by a joint venture of Zeller Realty Group and Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, on behalf of its clients.
“We are extremely pleased to continue our joint venture relationship with Partners Group on the acquisition of Resurgens Plaza, a perfect complement to 100 Peachtree in our Atlanta portfolio. It was a pleasure working with Partners Group and HFF on another successful transaction,” said Bill Rogalla, Principal and President of Zeller Investment Corporation for Zeller Realty Group.
Resurgens Plaza is situated on a full city block at 945 East Paces Ferry Road between Lenox and Roxboro Roads in Buckhead. This location, approximately six miles from downtown Atlanta, is close to Lenox Square, Phipps Plaza, GA 400 and Interstate 85. Located at Lenox Station, Resurgens Plaza is the only building in Atlanta with direct covered access to MARTA, , which provides connectivity to the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, residences in Brookhaven and Chamblee and the Midtown and Downtown business communities. Renovated in 2013, the LEEDGold certified and Energy Star-rated property is 77% leased and anchored by RSUI’s headquarters and Atlantic Capital Bank. Resurgens Plaza offers tenants a robust amenity base, including the two-story Grand Lobby, the Gold Line Bistro, a fitness facility, a conference center, and a 10-level, 940-space parking garage.
The HFF team worked on behalf of the borrowers to secure the floating-rate acquisition loan through ACORE Capital, a leading commercial real estate finance company. The HFF debt placement team representing the borrowers included senior managing director Ed Coco, associate Matt Casey and analyst Libby Malloy.
“With direct access to MARTA’s Lenox Station, Resurgens Plaza is well-positioned to benefit from the more widespread adoption of public transportation spurred by job growth and transit-oriented development across the city,” said Coco. “As a follow-up to the acquisition of 100 Peachtree earlier this year, Zeller Realty Group and Partners Group have once again focused on the continued urbanization of Atlanta and the desire amongst employers to make public transportation conveniently available to their employee base.”
