Overview
2300 Ninth Street South is a to-be-renovated, boutique office asset located in the desirable Columbia Pike neighborhood of Arlington, VA.
Location

The Property is proximate to Amazon's HQ2 at National Landing, where construction is underway on the first phase, a 2.1mm SF complex expected to open in 2023. Columbia Pike is expected to be a major beneficiary of Amazon HQ2 at National Landing, and the Property is only 1.5 miles away from the site. Sponsorship plans to capitalize on the proximity by offering a similarly amenitized office building at discounted rents to those in Crystal City near the Amazon HQ2 site. Boeing also announced that it will be relocating its headquarters from Chicago to Arlington. In addition to its headquarters, Boeing plans to develop a research and technology center. Boeing cited the access to world-class engineering and technical talent as a reason for their move. Raytheon also recently announced that it will relocate its global headquarters from Massachusetts to Arlington in 3Q22.  Raytheon is the second-largest defense company in the world after Lockheed Martin.

Market

The Sponsor believes that 2300 Ninth will offer best-in-class amenities in an excellent neighborhood location, with a higher-than-average parking ratio of 2.4 spaces per 1,000 SF, while also offering a rent discount to comparable properties in Crystal City and the Rosslyn-Ballston (RB) Corridor. Average A /B rents in Crystal City and the RB Corridor are now averaging $44 PSF and $53 PSF, respectively, according to Compstak and Costar. New leases at the Property are underwritten at an average of $40.79 PSF. 

Basis

The Property will be completely gut-renovated and is expected to be built to a standard that current tenants in the market are seeking. Sponsor intends to deliver a LEED-Silver, Fitwel, amenitized office building in the desirable Columbia Pike neighborhood at a basis that is projected to be well below replacement cost. The total Project budget of $34.4mm ($500/SF) is below the replacement cost of approximately $900 PSF for high-rise concrete and steel construction in Arlington County.

Investment Highlights
The location in the Columbia Pike neighborhood provides proximity to the decision-makers living in McLean and Vienna, VA. This location is a 10-minute drive to much of the executive housing in Northern Virginia and is inside the Beltway.
Sponsor expects to provide a newly renovated building with best-in-class amenities including a large conference room, exterior tenant plaza, bike storage, and lockers/showers. Additionally, the building will have a brand new VRF system providing energy efficiencies, and is expected to be LEED-Silver and Fitwel certified. The Property also has a higher than average parking ratio of 2.4 per 1,000 SF versus a typical Crystal City average of 2.0/1,000 SF, which is beneficial post-COVID. In addition, the Property will offer covered parking.
The Property is proximate to Boeing’s and Raytheon’s new headquarters, as they are both relocating from out of state largely driven by the world-class engineering and technical talent in the area. Additionally, Virginia Tech is building a $1B Innovation Campus to catalyze a new generation of advanced computing degrees.
The Property allows for smaller suite sizes given the floor plates of 10,000 SF on average, which is rare in this market. This coupled with the spec suite buildout during the renovation should allow for a quick lease-up of these spaces. Additionally, the smaller floor plates provide the potential for smaller tenants to lease an entire floor, a rare opportunity in this market.
The Property boasts views of the iconic D.C. monuments, RB Corridor, and National Landing. Additionally, the location has a walk score of 94 with multiple amenities such as coffee shops, dining options, fitness studios, grocery stores, and entertainment venues within walking distance of the Property.
There is a lack of speculative office construction in Northern Virginia and availability of entitled office land inside the Beltway. There is no development in the pipeline for the Columbia Pike Corridor, and only three spec buildings under construction in Northern Virginia.
Total Project budget of $34.4mm is inclusive of $8.9mm in acquisition costs, $22.7mm in construction costs and TI/LCs, and $2.9mm in carry/financing costs. Sponsor believes that the projected stabilized return on cost of 6.9% is healthy relative to the 5.75% exit cap rate. Additionally, the projected total budget is well inside of replacement cost (~$900 PSF) for this type of product in Arlington County.
*Sponsor is projecting a 16.1% IRR and a 1.56x equity multiple net of all fees and carried interest payments to Sponsor. Net of the Administration Solution Fee to RealtyMogul, and assuming a $50,000 commitment, Sponsor is projecting a 15.2% IRR and 1.53x equity multiple to investors.

Business Plan

BoundTrain purchased the Property in July of 2020 and has spent time advancing the design and business plan enabling the Project to start construction and leasing within the next few months. Pearlmark and BoundTrain, collectively as Sponsor, plan to renovate and amenitize the Property, rebrand, and cater to local, private sector tenants who appreciate the quality and service but have limited options at a reasonable rent for this type of space.  

Sponsor plans to complete a full gut renovation down to steel/concrete on each floor with spec suites on floors three through seven, upgrades to the building façade, new mechanical, electrical, storefront/entrance, main lobby, exterior plaza, common areas, shared conference room, restrooms, elevator cabs, and deliver new technology updates and security enhancements.

Sponsor plans to first spec suite the entire third floor to allow for expedited lease-up and cater to the small tenants in the market who like to move quickly when leasing space. Upon completion of the third floor spec suites, Sponsor will continue to spec suite floors 4 through 7. Immediately following the completion of the build-out, Sponsor will bring the Property to stabilization, and ultimately exit the investment.

Performance Care Clinics (a physical therapy provider) leased 1,903 SF of the first floor retail space to take occupancy upon delivery of improvements.  Additionally, LEDC, an in-place tenant has signed an LOI for a 440 SF spec suite on the third floor. Sponsor is nearing the final stages of lease negotiations with a leading national residential realtor to take a total of 7,355 SF. This will bring the Property to 32.2% leased including the in-place month-to-month (MTM) tenants. 

Anchor Tenant Overview

Performance Care Clinics is a physical therapy group with locations in Northern Virginia and Tampa, FL. They provide 1 on 1 physical therapy as well as sports performance and personal training.  

Part of the first and all of the second floor is expected to be occupied by an office of one of the leading national residential realtors, with the intent for 2300 Ninth to be their main South Arlington, VA office. The tenant plans to use TI dollars as well as invest further into the space and hopes to install a stairway to connect the first and second floors to create a cohesive environment. 

The building has received initial interest from tenants in the following industries:

  • Government Contractors attracted to close proximity with quick access to the Pentagon and greater D.C. Government agencies
  • Business Services firms attracted to large, nearby multi/single-family housing markets in need of their services
  • Tech firms attracted to being near Amazon HQ2 coupled with the variety of housing mix for their employees 
Active Tenant Pursuits Touring Market:
  • Association – 7,000 SF
  • Non-Profit – 10,000 SF
  • Law Firm – 5,000 SF
  • Government Contractors – multiple requirements from 2,500 SF to 25,000 SF
  • Cyber Security Firm – 3,500 SF
  • Clean Medical – 10,000 SF 
Leasing Opportunity:
  • Sponsor is tracking 427 leases with expirations through 12/2023 and which currently occupy space in Arlington
  • ~70% of those groups are currently occupying 10K SF or less
  • Of that group, over 60% are in the 5K SF and under category

Investor Q&A 7/14/2022

Property Details

BoundTrain purchased the Property in July 2020 and has spent almost 2 years planning and designing the redevelopment. The Property has seen few updates since construction in 1970 aside from elevator modernization and roof replacement. The Sponsor plans to complete a full gut renovation down to steel/concrete on each floor with spec suites on floors three through seven, upgrades to the building façade and roof, new mechanical, electrical, storefront/entrance, main lobby, exterior plaza, common areas, shared conference room, restrooms, elevator cabs, and deliver new technology updates and security enhancements.

Sponsor plans to capitalize on providing a well-amenitized, boutique office option that will cater to local, private sector tenants who have limited options at a reasonable rent for this type of product (15-20% below competition according to Costar) in the Arlington, Virginia office market, which is currently the most sought-after market in the D.C. Metro.

Location

Market Overview

Washington DC is an economy anchored by the presence of the Federal Government, but its blossoming biotechnology sector in Maryland and cloud software and defense sectors in Northern Virginia could drive occupancy higher in the near term.  

Large mixed-use developments will house many of the prominent employers in the region. Amazon, Marriott, Fannie Mae, Volkswagen, and Chemonics are just a handful of companies expanding into new headquarters. On the government side, the Transportation Security Administration is moving into its new Springfield offices, and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority and the Security and Exchange Commission will move into new projects as well.

With many of the under-construction projects opening as corporate headquarters and build-to-suits, the space set to enter the market should not add excess pressure on availabilities. Leasing activity has been driven by relocations of companies already in the market, as well as expansions of new companies. Additionally, there has been an ongoing flight to quality trend in the market.  

SOURCE: COSTAR

Submarket Overview

Northern Virginia continues to attract HQ relocations. In 2Q21, Starkist Tuna announced it will relocate from Pittsburgh to Reston Town Center. 

In 2Q22, Boeing announced that it will relocate its headquarters from Chicago to Arlington. In addition to its headquarters, Boeing plans to develop research and technology. Boeing cited the access to world-class engineering and technical talent as a reason for their move. Raytheon also recently announced that it will relocate its global headquarters from Massachusetts to Arlington in 3Q22, a move that will see four of the top five U.S.-based aerospace and defense contractors headquartered in Virginia. Raytheon is the second-largest defense company in the world after Lockheed Martin.

Amazon has purchased 2 sites to develop 4.1mm SF. Construction on the first phase of Amazon's HQ2 is underway in National Landing, which Sponsor believes will be a catalyst for regional growth. Amazon has already leased 857k SF, and Phase I of construction will include 2mm SF in 2 office buildings. Amazon plans to add a minimum of 25,000 jobs by 2030 with the potential for 12,850 more by 2034 with an average salary of $150,000. Columbia Pike is expected to be a major beneficiary of Amazon HQ2. 

As tenants return to the office, they will continue to embrace a flight-to-quality trend that is unfolding across the region. In particular, buildings in close proximity to amenities stand to outperform, while functionally obsolete products could be candidates for conversion to residential or data centers.

Sponsor’s Projections and Targets

*Assumptions and projections included in the information on this page, including pro forma projections (collectively “Projections”) were provided by the Sponsor or an affiliate thereof and are not reflective of the position or opinions of, nor are they endorsed by, RM Technologies, LLC or its affiliates, or any other person or entity other than the Sponsor or its affiliates.  RM Technologies, LLC and its affiliates do not provide any assurance of returns or the accuracy or reasonableness of the Projections provided by the Sponsor or its affiliates.   There can be no assurance that the Sponsor’s methodology used for calculating any Projections, including Target IRR, and Target Equity Multiple (“Targets”), are appropriate or adequate.  The Sponsor’s Projections and Targets are hypothetical, are not based on actual investment results, and are presented solely for the purpose of providing insight into the Sponsor’s investment objectives, detailing its anticipated risk and reward characteristics and for establishing a benchmark for future evaluation of the Sponsor’s performance. The Sponsor’s Projections and Targets are not a predictor, projection or guarantee of future performance.  There can be no assurance that the Sponsor’s Projections or Targets will be met or that the Sponsor will be successful in meeting these Projections and Targets.  Projections and Target returns should not be used as a primary basis for an investor’s decision to invest.

No Approval, Opinion or Representation, or Warranty by RM Technologies, LLC or it Affiliates

The information on this page, including the Sponsor’s offering documentation, which may include without limitation the Private Placement Memorandum, Operating or Limited Partnership Agreement, Subscription Agreement, the Project Summary and all exhibits and other documents attached thereto or referenced therein (collectively, the “Investment Documents”) was provided by the Sponsor or an affiliate thereof.  RM Technologies, LLC makes no representations or warranties as to the accuracy of such information and accepts no liability therefor.  No part of the information on this Page is intended to be binding on RM Technologies, LLC or its affiliates, or to supersede any of the Sponsor’s Investment Documents.  The opinions expressed on this page are solely the opinions of the Sponsor and its affiliates and none of the opinions expressed on this Page are the opinions of, nor are they endorsed by, RM Technologies, LLC or its affiliates.

Sponsor’s Information Qualified by Investment Documents

The Information on this page, including of the principal terms of the Sponsor’s offering, is qualified in its entirety by reference to the more complete information about the offering contained in the Sponsor’s Investment Documents.  The information on this page is not complete, and each prospective investor should carefully read all of the Investment Documents and any supplements thereto, copies of which are available by clicking the links above or upon request, before deciding whether to make an investment.  The information on this page should not be used as a basis for an investor’s decision to invest.  In the event of an inconsistency between the information on this page and the Investment Documents, investors must rely on the information contained in the Investment Documents.  The information on this page and the information in the Investment Documents are subject to last minute changes up to the closing date at the sole discretion of the Sponsor and its affiliates.

Risk of Investment

This real estate investment is speculative and involves substantial risk.  There can be no assurances that all or any of the assumptions will be true or that actual performance will bear any relation to the hypothetical illustrations herein, and no guarantee or representation is made that investment objectives of the Sponsor will be achieved.  In the event that actual performance is below the Sponsor’s Targets, your investment could be materially and adversely affected, and there can be no assurance that investors will not suffer significant losses.  A loss of part or all of the principal value of your investment may occur.  You should not invest unless you can readily bear the consequences of such loss.  Please see the Sponsor’s Investment Documents for additional information, including the Sponsor’s discussion concerning risk factors.

Risk of Forward-Looking Statements

Forward-looking statements are found here and in the applicable Investment Documents and may include words like “expects,” “intends,” “anticipates,” “estimates” and other similar words. These statements are intended to convey the Project Sponsor’s projections or expectations as of the date made. These statements are inherently subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties. Please see the applicable Investment Documents for disclosure relating to forward-looking statements.  All forward-looking statements attributable to the Sponsor or its affiliates apply only as of the date of the offering and are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements included elsewhere in the Investment Documents.  Any financial projections are preliminary and subject to change; the Sponsor undertakes no obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that arise after the date made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.  Inevitably, some assumptions will not materialize, and unanticipated events and circumstances may affect the ultimate financial results. Projections are inherently subject to substantial and numerous uncertainties and to a wide variety of significant business, economic and competitive risks, and the assumptions underlying the projections may be inaccurate in any material respect. Therefore, the actual results achieved may vary significantly from the forecasts, and the variations may be material.

Sponsor’s use of Debt

A substantial portion of the total acquisition for the Property will be paid with borrowed funds, i.e., debt.  There can be no assurance that the Sponsor will secure debt on the rates and terms noted above, or at all.  All of the Sponsor’s estimated rates and terms of the debt financing are subject to lender approval, including but not limited to the annual interest rate and possible increases in capital reserve requirements for funds to be held in a lender-controlled capital reserve account. The use of borrowed money to acquire real estate is referred to as leveraging.  Leveraging increases the risk of loss.  If the Sponsor were unable to pay the payments on the borrowed funds (called a "default"), the lender might foreclose, and the Sponsor could lose its investment in its property.

In addition, unless the debt provides for a fixed rate of interest during the term of the loan and/or any subsequent extensions, the total amount of interest paid over the term of the debt will increase by the same amount as the related index. For example, if the index rate increases by 0.50% (50 basis points) the interest rate on the loan will increase by the same amount. The amount of such interest rate increases may be capped either by its terms or as the result of the Sponsor entering into an arrangement that caps the interest rate with respect to the debt at a particular rate.

Sponsor’s Offering is Not Registered

The interests offered by the Sponsor will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) in reliance upon the exemptions from registration pursuant to Rule 506(c) of Regulation D as promulgated under the Securities Act (“Private Placement.”).  In addition, the interests will not be registered under any state securities laws in reliance on exemptions from registration.  Such interests are subject to restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted under applicable state and federal securities laws pursuant to registration or an available exemption.  All Private Placements on the RealtyMogul Platform are intended solely for “Accredited Investors,” as that term is defined Rule 501(a) of the Securities Act.  Prospective investors must certify that they are Accredited Investors and provide either certain supporting documents or third party verification, and must acknowledge that they have received and read all investment materials.

RM Technologies, LLC Fees and Conflicts

RM Technologies, LLC, an affiliate of RealtyMogul, operates the RealtyMogul Platform.  RM Technologies, LLC charges a fixed, non-percentage-based licensing fee for real estate companies and their sponsors to license and use the RM Technologies LLC’s proprietary Platform, including one-time flat licensing fees for its Technology Solution and an ongoing quarterly flat licensing fees for its Administration Solution.  An estimate of the Technology Solution licensing fee is included in the Closing Costs above and is intended to be capitalized into the transaction at the discretion of the Sponsor.  The licensing fees received by RM Technologies, LLC are disclosed in the relevant operating agreement(s). Additionally, from time to time, employees of RM Technologies, LL C and its affiliates invest in Sponsor’s offering.  RM Technologies LLC’s receipt of licensing fees and its employee’s investments in Sponsor’s offering creates a conflict of interest between RealtyMogul and its affiliates, and investors or prospective investors.
