An Orlando medical real estate developer is looking to sell a trio of buildings near downtown.
Developer Tim Majors' Headquarters Investments LLC wants to sell three properties — 2000, 2008 and 2010 N. Orange Ave. — for $13 million, according to LoopNet. NAI Realvest Partner Paul Partyka is marketing the properties, which have a combined market value of $4.1 million, according to Orange County records.
The properties include Majors' headquarters, which was named an OBJ "coolest office space" in 2019, the vintage car-themed M Bar and the rooftop M Lounge that offers skyline views of downtown.
Majors bought the properties for roughly $3.6 million between July 2015-May 2018, according to Orange County records. The properties feature a 21,150-square-foot office building built in 1996, a 5,000-square-foot retail structure built in 1954 and a 5,057-square foot retail building built in 1928.
The properties — on 0.82 acres — can be sold separately or together and "can be combined with other adjacent properties to make a major presence especially if in the medical field or any complementary use," according to marketing materials.
