October 18, 2023

WINCHESTER, Va. (Oct. 18, 2023) – Capital Square, one of the nation’s leading sponsors of tax-advantaged real estate investments and an active developer and manager of multifamily communities, announced today the sale of a medical building in Winchester, Virginia. The property was owned by a group of DST investors who realized a 149.09% total return, or a 6.78% annualized return, from their 1031 exchange investment.*

“Capital Square has acquired a large number of medical buildings in the southeast for the Section 1031 DST exchange program,” said Louis Rogers, founder and co-chief executive officer of Capital Square. “Medical assets are well known for providing stable income, preservation of capital and capital appreciation. We are pleased to report that this DST investment exceeded our expectation in generating an exceptional total return of 149.59% and a 6.78% annualized return to investors. And we expect most investors to structure another Section 1031 exchange with Capital Square.”

Since 2018, Capital Square has taken 25 DST offerings full cycle that have resulted in an average 173.51% total return and an average 14.53% internal rate of return.

Located at 38 W. Jubal Early Dr., the single-story Winchester medical building was acquired by Capital Square in July 2016. It is 100% leased to Bio-Medical Applications of Virginia and guaranteed by Fresenius Medical Care Holdings Inc. The unit was built-to-suit for Fresenius Medical Care, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA. Listed on both the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (DAX: FME) and New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: FMS), Fresenius is engaged in providing kidney dialysis services and clinical laboratory testing; manufacturing and distributing products and equipment for kidney dialysis treatment; and providing other medical ancillary services.

“The sale of the Winchester medical office building resulted in an attractive total return to our DST investors, who realized steady income throughout their holding period as well as appreciation on their equity investment,” said Whitson Huffman, co-chief executive officer. “This marks the twenty-fourth DST program Capital Square has taken full cycle. We couldn’t be more pleased with the track record of success we’ve established with our investors and their financial advisors.”

Since its founding in 2012, Capital Square has acquired 171 real estate assets for over 6,500 investors seeking quality replacement properties that qualify for tax deferral under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code and other investors seeking stable cash flow and capital appreciation.
