SEATTLE, WA – MAY 14, 2018 – CBRE Capital Markets has arranged the sale of Redmond East Business Campus to a closed-end fund managed by Kennedy Wilson. Redmond East is an eight-building office and flex portfolio located near downtown Redmond, WA.

Thomas Pehl and Lou Senini of CBRE’s Seattle office represented the seller in the transaction. Brad Zampa, Mike Walker, and Megan Woodring of CBRE’s San Francisco office arranged $34.5 million in balance sheet bank financing on behalf of Kennedy Wilson. The seven-year, non-recourse, full-term interest only, floating-rate acquisition financing at a very competitive spread priced over 30-day LIBOR was provided by a national financial service provider.

“Redmond is one of the strongest performing submarkets in the Puget Sound region,” said Pehl, Senior Vice President. “With the sub-market’s office vacancy under six percent and warehouse vacancy under one percent, Redmond East provides Kennedy Wilson with a diversified and stable income stream in a market where demand and rental rates will continue to grow.”
