Galen College of Nursing expands to nearly 68,000 SF at One Technology Center
WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Global real estate investment company Kennedy Wilson represented Hartman Income REIT Management, Inc. (Hartman), on a lease with Galen College of Nursing to expand to nearly 68,000 square feet at One Technology Center, located at 7411 John Smith Drive in San Antonio.
With a more than 20-year history of high-rise office landlord representation at Kennedy Wilson in San Antonio, Suzanne Havekost, managing director of leasing and brokerage, represented the landlord and negotiated directly with the tenant on the transaction.
“This transaction was years in the making and resulted in the most ideal scenario for both landlord and tenant,” said Havekost. “One Technology Center is situated in a prime location within the renowned 900-acre South Texas Medical Center, making it an ideal space for a nursing college like Galen, dedicated to supporting the increasing demand in the local healthcare community, to grow. San Antonio is hot right now, and we’re looking forward to continually strengthening our deep-rooted relationships with building owners and managers, like Hartman, across the market.”
Galen, one of the largest private nursing schools in the United States, first leased 24,000 square feet at One Technology Center in 2008 and then grew to occupy approximately 41,800 square feet several years later, while still maintaining an extended campus less than three miles away at 4440 Piedras Drive South in San Antonio. Both will now be located in the heart of South Texas Medical Center at One Technology Center.
“Hartman strategically focuses on partnering with entities that further our goal of creating value for our investors,” said Al Hartman, CEO of Hartman. “It was a pleasure working with Kennedy Wilson on this transaction. Suzanne has a reputation for being one of San Antonio’s most respected and toughest agents, and she truly grasps our vision for One Technology Center.”
One of 48 properties operated by Hartman, One Technology Center is a 14-story, 196,000-square-foot office building, well-located on the west side of the South Texas Medical Center. In addition to Galen College of Nursing, the property is currently occupied by a diverse mix of full-floor tenants including the Veterans Administration, University of Texas Health Science Center South, BSG and Progressive Insurance.
