(EDITOR’S NOTE: Seattle-based Touchstone developed Troy Block and announced the opening of the development with its financial partner on the project, USAA Real Estate, in October 2017. HFF will market Troy Block unpriced, but given the size of the project (over 800,000 square feet) it will be a large transaction, likely over $650 million, according to one industry source. Germany-based Union Investment Real Estate GmbH paid approximately $330 million, or $884 per square foot, to acquire the 373,000 square foot Amazon-leased Midtown21 office building in downtown Seattle in June 2017. In December 2017, Tokyo-based Takenaka Corporation acquired the 11-story 290,573 square foot Amazon-leased Tilt49 building in downtown Seattle for $268.5 million, or approximately $924 per square foot.)
SEATTLE, WA – February 20, 2018 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has been selected to market the sale of Troy Block, two newly constructed Class A+ office towers fully leased to a Fortune 50 investment grade technology tenant.
Troy Block is located at 300 Boren Avenue North in the South Lake Union submarket of Seattle, which is home to tenants in some of the fastest growing industries, including technology, media, software, global health and biomedical research.
Completed in 2016/2017, the two LEED Gold certified towers offer the highest quality improvements and latest building technology with multiple tenant amenities.
