Satsuma Business Park Transformation
Back in 2011, Satsuma Business Park was a distressed 59,000-square-foot heavy industrial complex. When Capital Realty Group was invited to take on the leasing assignment for the space, the property consisted of three industrial buildings and a small residence, but aside from one tenant—the owner—the property was vacant. This tenant was  consolidating into a smaller portion of the space and wanted Capital Realty Group to backfill the rest of the property.

The manufacturing building was heavily laden with dust and compounds that made the floor uneven and the interior of the building dirty. Due to the extent of clean-up and disposition of materials, equipment and debris, the project had to be performed in phases to clear out space and make it ready for tenants.

Income Generation for the Short and Long Term
Since it was important to begin generating income as soon as possible, the team at Capital Realty Group looked at short-term tenants who could take advantage of the open space without significant redesign. Simultaneously, they managed renovations and clean-up  of the other portions of the space. From February 2012 to June 2013, Capital Realty Group worked with the owner, giving direction and guidance, to increase occupancy from 26.9% to 100% in just 18 months.

Brant had saved us from a disastrous situation by setting out a plan to lease the project with minimal costs, maximizing the lease rates. He worked with our lender setting out a plan and timeline to get the property leased. His focus, dedication and knowledge of how to turn the property from a cash drain to cash-flowing property is remarkable! Thank you!”
