Investment Overview

Marcus & Millichap presents the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building located at 1530 Commonwealth Business Drive in Tallahassee, Florida. The 24,500-square-foot building was constructed in 2012 and is situated on 4.38 acres of land. This ICE location presents the opportunity for an investor to acquire a building tailored for this government agency. This facility provides a very attractive risk-adjusted yield with a highly rated credit tenant with S&P AA+ designation. General Services Administration leases offer long-term stability to an investor, as these federal agencies occupy the facilities for more than 30 years on average, with a first-generation renewal rate of approximately 96 percent.

ICE enforces federal laws governing border control, customs, trade and immigration to promote homeland security and public safety. ICE was created in 2003 through a merger of the investigative and interior enforcement elements of the former U.S. Customs Service and the Immigration and Naturalization Service. ICE now has more than 20,000 employees in more than 400 offices in the United States and 46 foreign countries. The agency has an annual budget of approximately $6 billion, primarily devoted to three operational directorates: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA). A fourth directorate, Management and Administration, supports the three operational branches to advance the ICE mission.
