United Seating & Mobility ("USM") will be consolidating its Albuquerque, NM based operations and sales divisions into a 21,400 square foot space located at 5501 Wilshire NE. The space had been previously utilized by a financial institution for a back-office use and was fully furnished with STEELCASE furniture. USM had been in search of a location that could accommodate its office/flex/showroom needs and the Wilshire property offered an almost move-in ready opportunity for the company. The building has a central location within Albuquerque's North I-25 Corridor with convenient access to the east and west sides of the city, plus signage that is visible from almost 100,000 vehicles per day.
United Seating & Mobility, who is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Healthcare (ACHC), is recognized as a preferred provider that carries and offers a wide array of products and services such as custom wheelchairs and seating and mobility systems for children, teens, adults, and seniors who are challenged with severe trauma, disease and/or skeletal disorders. The company is considered the largest independently owned wheelchair company in the country and has been in business for more than 30 years.
Our Team is the exclusive listing agent for the owner of the property, who is a San Francisco-based investment group. The assignment consisted of marketing the vacancy to large office and industrial users who could leverage the property's flexible layout and freeway visibility. We assisted the owner in negotiating a long-term lease that provided a stable income stream and upside. The only vacancy remaining in the 60,000 square foot building consists of a 7,414 rentable square foot office suite. According to listing agent, Tim With, SIOR, CCIM, "This transaction represents a tenant's need to consolidate multiple operations into a single facility, creating efficiency within its space and desire to trade-up in building quality."
