The world of apartment complexes presents diverse challenges for cost segregation. This case study revolves around a vast 18-building garden-style apartment complex, showcasing how Source Advisors transformed the financial landscape of the property’s acquisition.
This property is a high end, newly constructed, free-standing grocery store. The construction costs was $18,100,000 and it was placed-in-service in 2017.
The store is 48,000 square feet and sits on a three-acre site. The building is organized into a main floor for grocery sales with a mezzanine level for administrative functions and classrooms designed for cooking lessons.
Due to the grocery store’s luxurious nature and complex systems, a primary challenge was meticulously identifying and classifying assets for appropriate tax categorizations.
The store’s specialized sections and intricate systems, such as produce watering and backup power with a large generator, added layers of complexity to the study.
The main floor has numerous departments including a butcher’s department, seafood, bakery, wine, produce, floral, etc. Interior finishes consist of vinyl tile, carpet, ceramic tile, and drywall partitions finished with paint.
The store had significant numbers of cable trays, trenches, produce watering systems, supplemental HVAC, and backup power including a large emergency generator. Site improvements include asphalt paving, brick paving, concrete paving, cart corrals, fencing, and landscaping.
