NAI Koella | RM Moore Represents Buyer in Class A Office Acquisition

NAI Koella | RM Moore recently represented the purchaser in the acquisition of the 100,340 square foot fully-occupied Class A office building known as Parkside Plaza located at 11400 Parkside Drive within the Turkey Creek Mixed Use development in Farragut, TN. The total purchase price was $24,500,000.00.

Heidi Adams, Senior Investment Advisor with NAI Koella | RM Moore, represented the purchaser, O&M Holdings, an investment group local to the Knoxville area.  The seller was represented by Dan Cooper of Cooper Commercial out of Ohio. Financing for the transaction was provided by Y-12 Federal Credit Union with the loan transaction managed by Chris Chadwell, Senior Commercial Lender.

Parkside Plaza was originally constructed in 2007 by Partners Development of Knoxville.  It has since traded hands a few times and ownership of this iconic asset has now returned to Knoxville.

“Institutional grade investment among all asset classes is strong in the Knoxville market,” said Adams. “I am proud to have represented O&M Holdings in the ongoing expansion of their investment portfolio.” 

”We are very selective when adding to our commercial portfolio,” said John Cook, Managing Member of O&M Holdings.  “Parkside Plaza is a high-profile building located in the heart of Turkey Creek.  The tenant base is comprised of quality national and international tenants affording us a stable rent roll and a solid investment.”   

Cook continued, “We couldn’t be happier working with Heidi on this transaction. It was a complicated due diligence and she worked hard to keep all the players on track and focused on a successful closing.  Our firm has a long-standing relationship with Chris and Y-12 and we knew going into this transaction that the credit union would be a critical partner in making this deal happen.”

“Partnering with O&M Holdings and NAI Koella | RM Moore for this incredible transaction was a fantastic experience,” said Chris Chadwell of Y-12.  “We are thankful for the trust and mutual respect our relationship affords.  Being a part of community growth is always exciting, and our credit union wishes this endeavor much success.”
