A $146.5 million Corporate Office Properties Trust portfolio securitized in CMBS GCCFC 2007-GG9 was moved into special servicing this past month, according to Fitch Ratings.
Based in Columbia, MD, Corporate Office Properties Trust (NYSE:OFC
) is an office REIT that owns 208 operating properties primarily concentrated in business parks near Washington, DC. As a result of the recent downturn as well as government contractions, the company announced in April 2011 that it was disposing of assets to focus on its core constituents - U.S. Government tenants and tenants within the Defense Information Technology industries, according to a report from Nomura Securities. Over the past two years, the firm has continued to prune its portfolio of assets, reducing its holdings by 44 operating properties since the end of 2010.
The portfolio transferred to special servicer LNR Partners comprises 14 office buildings totaling more than 1 million square feet, with five properties in Colorado Springs and the remainder in the Airport Square business park, near the Baltimore-Washington International airport.
In its latest earnings announcement, COPT stated that it plans to sell all of its Colorado Springs assets not included in this portfolio.
The loan on the portfolio carries a 5.43% interest rate and matures in December 2016. As of year-end 2012, the portfolio was 77% occupied and produced net operating income of $10.22 million, according to the most recent month CMBS report. The portfolio was valued at $183.35 million when contributed to the CMBS in 2007.
