Hines Global Income Trust Acquires the IBM 500 Campus in Durham, North Carolina

December 18, 2023

(DURHAM, NC) – Hines, the glob­al real estate invest­ment, devel­op­ment, and prop­er­ty man­ag­er, announced that Hines Glob­al Income Trust, Inc. (“HGIT”) has acquired the IBM 500 Cam­pus, a 774,000 square-foot prop­er­ty locat­ed at 4205 South Mia­mi Boule­vard, Durham, North Car­oli­na. Terms were not dis­closed. The acqui­si­tion expands HGIT’s pres­ence in the region and fur­ther diver­si­fies its $3.9 bil­lion port­fo­lio, which is 63% weight­ed toward the indus­tri­al and liv­ing sec­tors. The site offers mul­ti­ple future rede­vel­op­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties, show­cas­ing HGIT’s strat­e­gy of procur­ing assets that cre­ate the poten­tial to lever­age Hines’ end-to-end mul­ti-asset class exper­tise. The four-build­ing asset is 100% leased by IBM and sit­u­at­ed on 146 acres in one of the top life sci­ence met­ros in Amer­i­ca. It is adja­cent to the Research Tri­an­gle Park, the largest research park in the Unit­ed States, which is home to 375 research, tech­nol­o­gy, and ag-bio com­pa­nies that employ more than 60,000 work­ers, four miles from Raleigh Durham Inter­na­tion­al Air­port, and has con­ve­nient inter­state access.

This strate­gic acqui­si­tion in one of our high pri­or­i­ty mar­kets expands our port­fo­lio through a sale-lease­back in the high­ly sought-after Research Tri­an­gle area,” said Alfon­so Munk, Hines’ CIO of the Amer­i­c­as and pres­i­dent of HGIT. As this mar­ket con­tin­ues to expe­ri­ence sig­nif­i­cant invest­ment, we believe the asset will be well-posi­tioned for con­tin­ued growth and oppor­tu­ni­ty.”

We are grate­ful for the oppor­tu­ni­ty to serve IBM and expand our firms’ long­stand­ing rela­tion­ship to North Car­oli­na,” said Paul Zar­i­an, man­ag­ing direc­tor at Hines. Long-term, we are attract­ed to the site’s future rede­vel­op­ment option­al­i­ty, specif­i­cal­ly giv­en its strate­gic loca­tion in the heart of a high demand sub­mar­ket for life sci­ence, res­i­den­tial, and indus­tri­al uses.”

Beyond the IBM 500 Cam­pus, Hines’ pres­ence in the Raleigh-Durham mar­ket includes Fen­ton, the 92-acre mixed-use dis­trict in Cary and the Mar­ket Dis­trict at Amer­i­can Tobac­co, a 782,000-square-foot mixed-use devel­op­ment in down­town Durham. In addi­tion, HGIT owns Waver­ly Place, a Whole Foods-anchored retail cen­ter in Cary. HGIT is diver­si­fied by geog­ra­phy and real estate asset class with a focus on dynam­ic sec­tors and markets.
