PORTLAND, OR – December 6, 2017 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the $36.5 million sale of North Creek Parkway Center, a 205,554-square-foot, Class A, six-building flex park located within the North Creek micro market east of Seattle, Washington.
The HFF team represented the seller, an affiliate of KBS Capital Advisors, and procured the buyer, Peregrine Realty Partners, Inc.
North Creek Parkway Center is located at 11804-18916 North Creek Parkway with easy access to Interstate 405 and State Route 522 in Bothell, a community that has seen household growth of nearly 20 percent since 2000 and a 12.8 percent year-over-year increase in home values. The 97-percent-leased property benefits from above average tenant retention and absorption due to its location in the supply constrained flex market in North Creek, which has a direct vacancy rate of 5 percent. Almost half of North Creek Parkway Center’s tenants have leased space in the park for 10 plus years, including anchor Alder Biopharmaceuticals, a leader in migraine prevention drug technology.
The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller included Michael Leggett, Dave Otis, Logan Greer and Kevin Freels. Joe Lynch and Dan Harden from Kidder Mathews provided leasing market expertise on the transaction.
