Soleo, a healthcare system offering therapeutic treatments for rare diseases, launched an aggressive expansion plan to open 20+ sites in 18 months. The client’s real estate portfolio consists of various asset types including office, lab, warehouse, and pharmacy space.
Soleo sought a real estate portfolio strategy to optimize their expansion, leverage the marketplace and streamline costs. Soleo’s existing portfolio included 22 locations across America, with regional hubs in Arizona, Ohio and Texas.
Each site has capital expense totaling $150 per foot, making the Site Selection strategy paramount.
Vestian identified locations with the right infrastructure to support Soleo’s business and manage down capital through landlord allowances and base building systems in place.
Proximity to hospitals/medical centers, key demographics and submarkets were critical to achieve success in their expansion. Vestian identified 8 options in each market that met these criteria, shortlisted to 3-5 options and issued RFPs. From there, the team leveraged the current market, negotiating optimal rent and concessions on behalf of Soleo, drastically reducing spend.
