DOUGLAS CAPITAL PARTNERS EXPANDS PORTFOLIO ACQUIRING THREE COLUMBUS AREA PROPERTIES

$25.0 million acquisitions mark first investments outside of Michigan 

SOUTHFIELD MI, March 12, 2024 – Michigan based, Douglas Capital Partners, a value-add real estate investment firm founded in 2014, announces the acquisition of three Columbus area properties from American National Insurance Company and Brookfield. The $25.0 million portfolio is collectively 385,000 square feet, and is comprised of SouthPark XX, a Class A industrial property located at 3555 Gantz Rd in Grove City, and two high quality office buildings located in Dublin; the Emeral Professional Building at 5747 Perimeter Drive and Upper Metro Place located at 5200 Upper Metro Place South. 

The properties acquired are strategically located in key neighborhoods within the Columbus metropolitan area. This calculated move underscores Douglas Capital Partners' commitment to identifying and investing in properties with strong growth potential and significant value.

The Emerald Professional Building, is situated in the center of Dublin's corporate corridor.  This premium office building exemplifies sophistication and prestige in a distinguished setting for businesses to elevate their operations and establish a commanding presence in the market.  

"We are thrilled to announce the expansion of our portfolio with the acquisition of these three exceptional properties in the Columbus area," said Glenn Pavey, Founder and Principal of Douglas Capital Partners.

We are confident that these acquisitions will not only enhance the value of our portfolio but also allow Douglas Capital Partners to contribute positively to the vibrant communities of Columbus."

The firm expects this portfolio to kick off further investment throughout Columbus and is currently working on other opportunities.  A select few Michigan properties owned by the company include Stephenson Technology Park, Haggerty Manufacturing Center, Forum Flats (Summer 2024) and Southfield Crossing II.
