A real estate investment trust managed by KBS has closed on its $147 million purchase of the Carillon office tower in uptown Charlotte.

KBS Real Estate Investment Trust III purchased the 24-story, 476,308-square-foot building from real estate firm Hines. As of Dec. 10, the Carillon building was 92% leased to 46 tenants with a weighted-average remaining lease term of 5.1 years, according to KBS, which said last year it was under contract to buy the office tower.

The Kessler Collection, a Florida-based hospitality company, purchased a 0.58-acre site next to the Carillon building in September and is planning to develop a “four-diamond” Grand Bohemian Hotel that is expected to be complete in 2018, KBS says.

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture.  For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments.  Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.  I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
