Real Capital Solutions bought the office buildings at 200 and 250 Medtron- ic Drive from Ryan Cos., which built the campus. The 404,159-square-foot asset is fully leased to Medtronic, which guaranteed a 20-year, triple-net lease. The 42-acre property situated at the inter- section of U.S. Highway 287 and the Northwest Parkway was completed earlier this year and is the medical device com- pany’s second-largest campus in the U.S. The property offers room to expand into a third building between 75,000 and 200,000 sf if Medtronic out- grows its two existing build- ings. Amenities at the Medtronic property include a full-service cafeteria with indoor and out- door seating, a fitness center, outdoor open spaces, areas for team activities, indoor and outdoor bike parking, a recreation loop, and access to trails and public transporta- tion, according to a Medtronic press release from the ground- breaking. The campus includes several sustainability features, such as reduced water and irrigation use, solar parking canopies, electric vehicle charging sta- tions, pollinator gardens, occu- pancy sensors and LED light- ing. The site is also equipped with state-of-the-art ventila- tion filtration and air distribu- tion systems.
