Kayne Anderson Real Estate, the real estate investment arm of Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, has acquired from Synovus Bank a $1.3 billion medical office loan portfolio. The purchase was made through the company’s debt platform, KARED, launched in 2015 and which has closed on more than $11 billion since. JLL Capital Markets represented Synovus Bank in the transaction.

The 13 million-rentable-square-foot portfolio spans 33 states and includes 106 floating-rate mortgages secured by 308 medical office building assets. The properties, sponsored by blue-chip institutional investors, are 92.3 percent leased on a long-term basis with an average remaining lease term of nine years and 35 percent of them are anchored by hospitals.

Since its founding in 2007, Kayne Anderson Real Estate has amounted a portfolio of assets under management valued at $14 billion and has completed more than $24 billion of gross investments across its equity and debt strategies. The company’s target sectors include medical office buildings, student and senior housing, as well as attainable housing. With this recent acquisition, the company’s focus is on diversifying its portfolio and scaling its platform, according to prepared remarks from Al Rabil, co-founder & CEO of Kayne Anderson Real Estate.

Kayne Anderson’s health-care investments

KA Real Estate has acquired some 25 million square feet of medical office space that spans 579 properties across 41 states since 2013. The company’s involvement in health-care real estate is strongly tied to its partnership with Remedy Medical Properties.

In the last couple of years, the two companies made several significant purchases through a joint venture. In early 2022, Remedy Medical Properties, Kayne Anderson Real Estate and MedProperties Realty Advisors LLC formed a $350 million-plus partnership to recapitalize a 23-asset health-care real estate portfolio that encompasses more than 1 million square feet, spread across 11 states.

The partnership kicked off 2023 with another deal, that included the acquisition of Project Prism, a collection of 13 medical office properties in eight states, totaling 300,328 square feet. Montecito Medical Real Estate sold that portfolio for $131 million.
