Boca Office Building Goes Under Contract For $24 Million

Written by on June 4, 2018 in Done Deals, News - No comments

Less than three years ago, Mainstreet Capital Partners and Davis Cos. paid $28.3 million for two office properties and vacant land in Boca Raton.

Now the firms stand to recoup most of that money by selling just one of the assets – a five-story office building at 900 Broken Sound Pkwy NW.

The 115,986-square-foot building is under contract for $24 million, CoStar reported.

The buyer is an institutional investor affiliated with the NAI / Merin Hunter Codman in West Palm Beach, according to a person involved in the negotiations.

The other assets in the $28.3 million portfolio were 5500 Broken Sound Blvd. NW and a nine-acre parcel.

The building at 900 Broken Sound Pky once housed Nokia and Siemens. It’s now 80 percent leased to three tenants: CSL Plasma, Geosyntec Consultants and Score at the Top.

Peter Reed, a Palm Beach County office broker not involved in the sale, said the transaction is part of a trend in which landlords are cashing out more quickly than they have in the past. He noted that recent owners of the Esperante and CityPlace Tower office buildings in West Palm Beach also have sold those properties after only a few years.

“That’s become more the mindset of owners,” said Reed, with Commercial Florida Realty Services in Boca Raton. “Owners aren’t necessarily holding on for five, seven, 10 years anymore.”

900 Broken Sound Pky was built in 1989 in what was then known as the Arvida Park of Commerce, a 700-acre corporate business park. It has since been renamed The Park at Broken Sound as part of a rebranding that also included a rezoning that cleared the way for retail and residential. The additional uses make the park more attractive to investors, brokers say.

“The [rezoning] has been a big driver in value,” said Brady Titcomb, a broker with JLL. “Now there’s a whole neighborhood that you didn’t have before.”
