A new institutional healthcare partnership between Centuria and an investment vehicle sponsored by Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing – the private real estate investment management arm of US-based Morgan Stanley – has been announced today.

To be called the Centuria Prime Partnership (CPP), the joint venture is seeded with three healthcare real estate assets that are collectively worth $210 million. 90% of CPP will consist of an investment from Morgan Stanley, with the balance Centuria.

The assets are supported by strong tenants on long term leases, with a weighted average lease expiry (WALE) of 12 years and 99% occupancy.

All three assets focus on solutions that deliver better patient care, with the joint venture illustrating Centuria’s diverse range of capital sources.
