COLUMBIA, SC-Harbor Group International, operating from its local headquarters in Norfolk, has purchased two Koger Office Parks–one here and one in Nashville. The two purchases, comprising over one million sf of office space, have both been renamed Synergy Business Park.

After paying more than $87 million for the Columbia and Nashville parks, Harbor Group now plans to invest a combined $4 million in upgrades and enhancements aimed at helping tenants become more productive.

According to Harbor Group’s chairman Jordan E. Slone, the dual purchase is the largest in the company’s 15-year history. Slone notes that the Synergy program has been introduced for the express purpose of meeting the office needs of today.

Both properties will be provided with high-speed Internet services from multiple broadband providers. Tenants will also be supplied with their own private intranet, redundant power systems, specialized environmental controls, as well as flexible lease terms and floor plans.

Harbor Group has invested more than $140 million in purchasing the four former Koger parks and now owns more than half a billion dollars in office, commercial and residential properties worldwide. Although Harbor Group adheres to an acquisition strategy, in the past year the company has also sold four apartment complexes and two shopping centers.
