Nuveen Global Cities REIT acquires three medical office and life science properties

Nuveen Global Cities REIT, Inc. (GCREIT) has completed the acquisition of three medical office and life science properties for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $35 million. GCREIT is a public, non-listed NAV real estate investment trust advised by an affiliate of Nuveen Real Estate, one of the largest real estate managers globally with approximately $133 billion of assets under management as of December 31, 2020.

GCREIT’s acquisitions offer increased exposure to a sector that is benefiting from short- and long-term demand growth. GCREIT believes that healthcare-centric real estate will continue to grow in importance during the coming decades, particularly in light of COVID-19, and is likely to spark more research into finding vaccines for future pandemics, which will be a key driver of life science demand.

While economic recovery continues in 2021, the pace will vary across sectors and industries. We are seeing certain real estate sectors such as industrial, technology and medical-related properties benefiting from macroeconomic trends such as e-commerce growth and increased reliance on technology and healthcare.
Richard Kimble, Portfolio Manager of GCREIT

The medical sector in the United States has experienced long-term tailwinds due to the aging baby boomer generation, comprised of approximately 73 million people who are increasingly seeking innovative healthcare solutions. Given the high cost of healthcare relative to other developed nations, more cost-effective medical care outside of the traditional hospital setting has become more popular.

The acquisitions are located in target United States cities selected for resiliency and bring GCREIT’s allocation to healthcare-centric real estate to approximately 14% of its $657.54 million portfolio, as of January 31, 2021.

GCREIT is sponsored by Nuveen, LLC, a TIAA company and externally advised by its affiliate, Nuveen Real Estate Global Cities Advisors, LLC, an investment advisory affiliate of Nuveen Real Estate.
