Portland, OR (July 12, 2018) – NKF Capital Markets has completed the $32.25 million sale of Sunset Corporate Park III, a 103,279-square-foot, office property located at 21375 NW Bennett Street, Hillsboro, OR.
NKF Capital Markets Co-Head of U.S. Capital Markets Kevin Shannon, Vice Chairman Nick Kucha, Executive Managing Directors Ken White and Dave Squire, and Directors James Childress and Bill DeLacy represented the seller, an institutional investor. The buyer, Crown Realty & Development, was represented by its Chief Operating Officer, Kreg Groat.
Located next to Intel’s Ronler Acres Campus and within the Sunset Corridor submarket, the single-tenant office property is 100 percent leased to Wells Fargo. The Sunset Corridor submarket is home to some of Portland’s best-known technology and corporate giants, including Intel, Nike, Genentech, Salesforce, Epson, Oracle, and Kaiser Permanente.
“The sale of Sunset Corporate Park III is a testament to the strength and desirability of the Sunset Corridor submarket as well as the credit and investment quality of Wells Fargo,” said Kucha.
Squire said, “The sale of Sunset Corporate Park III allowed the seller to take advantage of current investor demand for assets with long-term leases with investment grade, credit tenants. The Sunset Corridor is experiencing tightening vacancies and increasing rents. At the same time there is no speculative construction underway-or planned.”
DeLacy added, “This offering was well received, in part because of the credit tenant profile of Wells Fargo, the strong occupancy history of the property, and the strong fundamentals of the submarket. We are seeing newfound capital interest in the suburbs for well-located assets with compelling tenant profiles or mark-to-market opportunities.”
