Back Bay Buying Bonanza BY JOE CLEMENTS OSTON—Consumers frequenting tony Back Bay shops from Armani and Chanel to Neiman Marcus and Williams-Sonoma are used to paying exorbitant sums for their purchases, and that acceptance appears to have sunk in for CRE investors who fought long and hard in 2012 to BOSTON DEALS secure prime properties at ever-escalating rates, most notably on the retail end. A New York City investor with a background in departments stores paid $26.7 million for 28 Newbury St., a three-story building leased to Banana Republic that yielded an astounding $1,404 per sf in a deal brokered by Holliday Fenoglio Fowler. That even topped the $1,288 per sf doled out for 815 Boylston St., the newly constructed Boston retail home for Apple Inc., which did attract a higher sales price at $27.5 million and caught wider media attention due to its famous tenant. “It was exciting,” Eastdil Secured Managing Director Peter Joseph says of the buzz created when the listing was unveiled over the summer

CRE Money Flowed in 2012 BY MIKE HOBAN OSTON — Recession? What Recession? That would appear to be the vibe coming from some corners of the Greater Boston CRE lending community as activity appears to be ramping up to levels approaching 2007. And while the environment may not exactly be back to the pre-recession insanity of those days—when LENDING standards were looser than Al Roker’s pants after stomach bypass surgery—lenders are beginning to compete against each other for well-located deals with solid sponsors, even for non-multifamily assets, according to industry observers who marvel at the sunnier climate. “If you look at where the market was, you had a securitization market that was shut down, so there was no long term debt; you had Fannie and Freddie in severe distress; and the banks were deeply saddled KENNETH J. WITKIN with problem loans,” recalls Kenneth J. Witkin, a partner at the Roseview Group, a provider of investment banking and lender advisory services. “Today, it’s almost uncanny that you would not know what took place three years ago.” CLAUDIA PIPER Witkin reports that the CMBS market appears to be ending its hiatus. While still far away from the peak in 2007 that saw $231 billion of securities issued, the figure rose above $45 billion in 2012 as investor interest began to regain momentum JULIA ANNE SLOM in the second half of the year and originators became more attractive to borrowers. The life companies also came back in a big way (with $300 million financed in the second half of the year in Massachusetts alone), and many large domestic banks are also making strides, joining the hundreds of New England commercial banks who have been the most consistent sources of debt. “A lot of the foreign banks have exited the market, (particularly) a lot of German banks that were very active,” conveys Witkin. “They’ve

B

ONE ALEWIFE CENTER, CAMBRIDGE MA

been getting a lot of pressure from the regulators and they’ve been under a lot of pressure to lend in their own countries, and they’ve also begun having a more domestic focus.” That in turn has been creating more opportunities for the domestic banks, who are responding, according to Witkin. In the second half of 2012 alone, such institutions made a huge splash in getting funds out. JPMorgan ($2.9 billion), Bank of America ($237 million), RBS Citizens ($203 million), Sovereign Bank ($145 million) and Wells Fargo ($118 million) led the resurgence. Although no one is suggesting that the industry is becoming reckless again, Witkin inserts a measure of caution. “What took place this last time (2008) is exactly what took place before,” he observes. “Everyone swore after the late 1980s and early 1990s that ‘We learned our lesson,’ but then they repeated the same mistakes again. They all become intoxicated. Now we’re back to the same speech, and hopefully (this time) it will be true. In agreement is TD Bank Regional Director Peter Brockelman, who oversees CRE lending for Massachusetts, Rhode Island and northern New England. “What we’re seeing is that with a high-quality asset or one with a good sponsor with a great reputation, folks are getting very aggressive on those assets,” says Brockelman. “I wouldn’t say other banks are being undisciplined, but if there’s (a number of lenders) look-

ing at a deal, there’s going to be one or two that will get aggressive in spots like leverage, LTV or a recourse factor—not so much on pricing but more on structural (elements).” There has even been anecdotal talk of some banks providing nonrecourse terms, a lure usually left to the CMBS crowd. On a less cautionary note, Brockelman reports that TD had another solid year, particularly in the— PETER BROCKELMAN s u r p r i s e — m u l t i f a m i l y arena. “Last year and this year multifamily was obviously very active in terms of numbers of units and dollar signs,” he relays. “I wouldn’t say volume was up in any product type other than multifamily for us; it was pretty well distributed. We had a good mix of local, middlemarket and regional, right up to RIF (REITS, Institutions and Funds). ” Webster Bank more than doubled its loan output in 2012, closing on $214.5 million in new commitments spread over 16 loans, conveys Senior VP Claudia Piper. “2012 was clearly a more active year than 2011 for both acquisitions and re-financings, but competition for these financings increased in the second half of the year as more players became active in the market,” Piper says.

A JLL employee since 2005, Borden spent most of this decade in Frankfurt, Germany, helping both US firms and domestic investors place money across the European continent. The Middlebury College alum has completed sales totaling more than $1 billion. Hired as a Managing Director following a decade at Beacon Capital Partners, Hughes had been dispatched by the iconic Boston firm to open their London office, during which time she processed $2.5 billion of business. “It’s powerful,” Petz says of hav-

SUBURBAN DEALS

CRE Buyers Move Out to Suburbs BY JOE CLEMENTS URLINGTON — Early bird shoppers flock to this retail-laden community every holiday season in search of bargains, and recent trends in commercial real estate sales here suggest those who got in that line first are being rewarded handsomely as well, with several properties that changed hands in darker climes churning over in 2012 at dramatically higher prices. A case in point is 1 and 3 Burlington Woods, acquired in September by Colony Realty Partners for $54 million in a deal brokered by Eastdil Secured. The figure is well above the $32.7 million seller Davis Cos. had paid at a foreclosure auction in June 2010 for the pair of office buildings that have a prized location fronting Route 128 but were saddled by debt secured when the buildings had sold during the mid-2000’s real THOMAS W. BROWN estate boom. A few exits south, an affiliate of Cargill cashed out on its majority stake in Network Drive at Northwest Park in a $215 million recapitalization with the Nordblom Co. JPMorgan Asset Management is JONATHAN G. DAVIS Nordblom’s new partner for the 158-acre, 1.1 million-sf complex. The infusion that proved to be one of New England’s largest investment deals of 2012 was arranged through Eastdil Secured, with James McCaffrey and Sarah Lagosh leading the assignment. Eastdil officials declined comment on both Burlington transactions, but in an interview, CEO Jonathan G. Davis says the decision to trade the Burlington property “was not easy” given his expectation of continued upside for the community. The deciding factor, he says, was the robust return yielded for investors. The firm continued to plumb the regional landscape for fresh opportunities, and managed to spend nearly $100 million on two properties, paying $38.4 million for the Fresh Pond Technology Park in Cambridge and $62.8 million for the Bedford Business Park in Bedford, a three-build-

develop and what the best use might be,” Davis says of the assemblage that is in an evolving area where older flex and industrial buildings are being replaced with more modern commercial buildings such as lab facilities and even multifamily housing. Webster Bank provided $24.5 million to finance the acquisition of approximately 10 acres encompassing Fresh Pond Technology Park. Cushman &Wakefield represented the buyer and procured Davis Cos. for the Bedford oppor-

tunity. Similar to its multi-faceted overhaul of 1 and 3 Burlington Woods that boosted occupancy quickly there, the Davis Cos. is moving full steam ahead on revitalizing the 22-acre, 470,000-sf Bedford asset to take advantage of a surging submarket fueled by firms priced out of Burlington and Waltham who are looking for nearby options. Architectural firm Gensler has already been engaged to give the park a new image, reports Davis. It was 90 percent leased at the time of its purchase. As mentioned elsewhere in the investment market review of downtown Boston, the Davis Cos. took on a 75,000-sf office building in the Hub’s Seaport District, but its namesake founder says even in looking at “everything” that came available in the Hub last year, the firm was almost shut out totally. That not only drove Davis Cos. to the suburbs, but beyond as well, with roughly half of the $235 million spent in 2012 placed outside New England in such venues as Florida and New York. “We’re very satisfied with what we accomplished in 2012,” Davis says. “Our only regret is that we weren’t able to buy more in Boston, but we found there were better places to put our money, and that makes it easier to accept.” Davis is among those who predicts the improving Boston market will only make CRE prospects harder to land in 2013, especially continued on page 14

The asset was 53 percent leased at the time of its sale. More typical of buying in Cambridge was the $119 million BioMed Realty dispatched to acquire One Cambridge Place from MetLife last spring. The three-building, 287,000-sf office/lab complex was sold through Eastdil Secured and reportedly garnered widespread interest before the REIT stepped to the fore. Even with opportunity funds favoring value-add deals, other investors seemed especially interested in stabilized suburban listings last year, especially institutional capital that is finding it harder to buy JEREMY FREID core downtown but remains risk-averse. Cole Real Estate Investments paid $93.5 million for a pair of Bedford office and research buildings leased to RSA Security, while a newly constructed office tower in Worcester brought in an impressive $75.9 million in its December purchase by a Florida investor. C&W negotiated both of those trades in separate negotiations, and also was the broker for TIAA-CREF in the pension fund’s $26.4 million sale of 160 Gould St. ADAM MEIXNER in Needham to the James Campbell Co., which was advised by Colony Realty Partners in the deal for a first-class, 138,000sf office building in the heart of the Route 128 Central submarket.

Speaking of Bulfinch, the firm made a big splash in 2012 with the purchase of the former Chestnut Hill Mall in Chestnut Hill that is being converted to medical office space, said to be a new penchant of the company. The firm also paid $9.5 million for 30 Perwal St. in Westwood to the Campanelli Cos. for that 101,000-sf building which is fully leased to Steward Health Care Systems. Medical office proved to be a popular specialty among investors in 2012. R.W. Holmes negotiated the trade of one such asset at 604 Main St. in Shrewsbury. The 18,575 sf building yielded $4.5 million from DSN Realty Trust, which was represented by R.W. Holmes Senior VP Craig S. Johnston, with colleague John Eysenbach DOUG ADAMIAN advising the seller, RPI Shrewsbury Main Realty LLC. The building is fully occupied by two tenants on long-term leases, those being Child Health Associates and UMass Memorial Medical Center. CHRISTOPHER MCMAHON DSN Realty was acquiring the asset on the back end of a 1031 exchange deal from a Westborough manufacturing building that sold earlier in the year. In another medical-related transaction which closed on the final day of 2012, a threestory medical building conceived and constructed by Campanelli was bought by Intercontinental Real Estate Corp. of Brighton for cash and debt assumptions totaling $22.8 million.

MULTIFAMILY DEALS

CBRE Tops $700M in Multifamily BY JOE CLEMENTS OSTON — Anyone looking for drama identifying New England’s leading multifamily brokers will be sorely disappointed--again. No envelope is required ranking the CBRE/New England team led by Simon J. Butler and Biria St. John as most prolific regionally in 2012 for that white-hot asset class, one so vibrant that the $959 million negotiated was the duo’s second highest total ever, approaching 2007 when SIMON BUTLER the figure crested $1 billion. Of that completed in 2012, $710 million was brokered by CBRE/NE with the remaining $249 million contracted through Cushman & Wakefield, the high-powered firm Butler and St. John left to begin BIRIA ST. JOHN the new year. Those deals were committed prior to the departure but did not close until 2012 for various reasons common in such large trades.

20th year in the industry, they have topped $7 billion in gross consideration, with the figure at $6.4 billion when the move to CBRE/NE— which they had left in 2006 to join C&W—was announced. The team had handled more than 50,000 units going into 2012, and was again well above 1,000 on that front for the year, boosted with the $188 million exchange of 550 luxury apartments at Oak Grove Village on the Melrose/Malden line. Fidelity Investments, via its real estate arm Pembroke, was the seller in that mammoth pact finalized in early August. General Investment & Development of Boston took the reins of the community hailed for transit access and on-site lifestyle services. It is a five-minute walk to the Oak Grove Orange Line subway line CHRISTOPHER D. SOWER into Boston and has onsite features such as a clubhouse, swimming pool and extensive retail, including an upscale restaurant. “It’s a wonderful property,” says Butler. The same week of that conclusion, Archstone Residential paid $94.2 million to Fairfield Residential for Station 250 in Dedham, a 285-unit transit-oriented community set on 16 acres adjacent to the Legacy Place lifestyle center on Route One. CBRE/NE handled that listing as well, and later assisted Fairfield Residential in its purchase of Alta Woods in Stoughton, a $27.5 million investment bought from Wood Partners, a Georgia multifamily builder also targeting Massachusetts that opted to cash out early on the 154-unit Stoughton complex. The development has now been rebranded as the Coppermill Park Apartments.

As if that were not enough, CBRE/NE reaped another $120 million for Archstone in the December sale of the REIT’s Grover Cronin Apartments in downtown Waltham. The 280unit luxury complex developed alongside the Charles River is now owned by UDR, a Colorado-based REIT previously named United Dominion Realty. The purchase adds to UDR’s national portfolio in excess of 50,000 units that includes other properties in Greater Boston. Butler declined comment on specific transactions, but concurs that the 22 deals completed on behalf of CBRE/NE amounted to a time-strapped 2012. “We were fortunate to have some very loyal clients,” Butler says of the fast launch, a pace he agrees was helped mightily by the hyperactive environment favoring multifamily sales. “It was a good year, and we are looking at doing a similar volume in 2013,” reports Butler. Even in handling nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars in 2012, the tide of business was not exclusively the domain of CBRE/NE, as nearly every other multifamily brokerage operation in

Greater Boston assisted clients in a vast array of sales at all levels. Groups grabbing their fair share included Apartment Realty Advisor’s Burlington office and Marcus & Millichap, known nationally and in Connecticut for its multifamily acumen but less so in Massachusetts. The firm was busy operating under the radar, however, finalizing 20 such deals in 2012, according to Dennis Kelleher, who is overseeing the local team that works in the same office as net lease aces Robert Horvath and NEIL DENENBERG Todd Tremblay. A homegrown operation that made a name for itself in multifamily circles practically overnight is Boston Realty Advisors. The contingent of Christopher D. Sower and Jason S. Weissman tallied $133 milJONATHAN BLACKER lion in multifamily deals during the year, including two listings in Harvard Square and a Boston portfolio acquired by the Hamilton Co for $18.5 million. That 91unit transaction adds to Hamilton’s vast empire which was already in excess of 5,000 units and hovering near 100 percent occupancy. Local capital scored its share of victories, with other buyers including the Dolben Cos. and True North Capital, but the largest transactions were almost exclusively the domain of institutional funds and multifamily REITs. Fairfield Residential was especially busy and Behringer Harvard’s acquisition was its second Bay State investment in the past 12 months, having paid $64.7 million for the Stone Gate continued on page 24

Located at 212 Bedford St. in Abington, the asset’s impressive per-unit price of $208,000 reflects the growing confidence investors have in suburban Boston coupled with a desire to own quality, Neil Denenberg told the Real Reporter following the purchase by Greystar, a South Carolinabased apartment operator that observers say has JASON BRAUN been chasing assets throughout Massachusetts. Whether that investor took a run at the Grandview apartments in Framingham is unclear, but the $84.5 million derby winner for the 581 units listed in two properties there was hometown residential powerhouse Chestnut Hill Realty. Approaching 45 years in business, the firm that now controls 4,500 units in Massachusetts and Rhode Island landed one of the heftiest availabiliRICHARD CAWLEY ties in New England after retaining New Boston Fund veteran Jerome L.

Also peddled through CBRE/NE, Grandview Terrace and Grandview Village have been recast as the Water View Apartments, and CHR is spending millions of dollars to “improve curb appeal and infrastructure,” Chief Operating Officer Bobby Zuker said in a statement after the closing which was first detailed by the Real Reporter in November. “This is the type of property we do well with,” Zuker said. “There was a lot of deferred maintenance and so there is plenty of opportunity to put money back into the properties, create value and improve the quality of life for residents.” continued on page 27

Founder and CEO Ed Zuker seconded that commitment, pledging CHR will make the Water View Apartments “one of our signature properties” and agreeing that institutional funds are focused on downtown Boston. Conversely, “CHR sees tremendous value and opportunity in Framingham,” he says, pointing out that MetroWest recently appeared in a Money magazine roster of Best Places to Live. “We are delighted to be expanding our portfolio into this marketplace,” says Ed Zuker. Water View Terrace has 300 units set on 4.2 acres, while the 281 units at Water View Village is located on 8.4 acres, with both overlooking the Foss Reservoir. Village units are in a quartet of sixstory buildings, whereas Water View Terrace features a pair of six-story buildings. Elsewhere in the suburban arena, United Multi Family brokered multiple deals during 2012, including the $16.2 million sale of 92 units at 1 Lakeview Ave. in Reading to Albiani Management Realty Trust from M.J. Realty Trust II. UMF President Richard Cawley and Vice President Jason Braun listed the asset that fetched $176,000 per unit and yielded a capitalization rate of 4.9 percent. Developed in 1968, the complex was financed with $11.5 million from South Shore Bank, a mortgage arranged by Cornerstone Realty Capital. Other

deals of note brokered by UMF last year included 36 units in Arlington that sold for $5.7 million and 14 Murdock St. in Somerville, a 30-unit property that yielded $5.25 million, this time for M.J. Realty Trust I, managed by Michael F. Iodice Jr. The buyer is Hampshire LLC, managed by Rekha Madan and Tony Madan, who secured $4.2 million from Leader Bank. Cornerstone also assisted True North Capital in its purchase of 92 units at the University Apartments in Woburn, a deal that closed on the final day of 2012. CBRE/NE was the broker on that transaction, representing seller Emerald Realty Trust I in harvesting the eight-building property located on 2.6 acres near the Winchester town line. Apartment Realty Advisors peddled several “bellwether assets” in 2012, according to principal Richard Robinson of ARA’s New England team that also includes New Hampshire multifamily expert Terence Scott and a team of market specialists. Among the diverse list of properties changing hands, the largest of 2012 for ARA locally would be the 394-unit Highpoint Apartments acquired in the summer by Berkshire Investments of Boston. The $88 million spent was just a beginning; the new owner is upgrading common areas and landscaping even though the asset was just built in 2004, and is also upgrading upper level units to compete as luxury housing, taking advantage of vistas looking to Boston and over Quincy Harbor. “It’s pretty unique,” Robinson says of Berkshire repositioning such a young

asset. ARA specializes in land sales, according to Robinson, and the regional group is handling eight such listings at present. “The land business is very, very strong,” Robinson relays, especially for infill locations. One such parcel near Fenway Park was scooped up this summer for $12.4 million by RICHARD ROBINSON Skanska, the European construction giant that intends to develop multifamily on the former Burger King Restaurant site at 1350 Boylston St.. Robinson declined to discuss that deal, even in identifying the winning bidder, but sources TERENCE SCOTT estimated the pricing equates to $87,000 per buildable unit, a lofty rate even by Boston standards that one expert says is typically closer to $30,000 per unit. Butler says CBRE/NE has also seen a surge of interest for land. “If you can’t buy, you have to build,” he observes while also opining that the hand-wringing over new construction does not take into account that many of the units could well be converted to condominiums, as Millennium Partners is now supposedly pondering for a multifamily building under construction in Boston’s Downtown Crossing. As it is, Butler notes the Hub has been “vastly undersupplied” on rental housing for decades, with the surge now underway seen as a limited infu sion.

implications facing the seller. “We had a pretty short fuse,” Natalizio says of colleague Brett Pagani and him getting the deal done for a local group that received $10.2 million from South Shore Bank to buy the University Apartments in Woburn (see multifamily sales overview page 20). Mortgage Bankers Association research reveals multifamily lending surged 49 percent nationally in the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the same period in 2011, and jumped 36 percent for the entire year. That compares to a 19 percent increase YOY in retail originations, 10 percent for industrial, 9 percent for office and a 6 percent gain in the healthcare arena. Natalizio—and most other lending professionPAUL NATALIZIO als—were hardly complaining about taking on the extra business finding debt solutions for clients who remarkably were still able to command a better rate than those in the historic lows of 2011, with interest rates dropped into the 3 percent sphere for many core multifamily trades. Commercial banks were so aggressive that non-recourse terms were available for select borrowers, partly reflective of the prized asset class and in response to the return of BRETT PAGANI CMBS lenders to the table after years of absence that gave the edge to hundreds of hometown and regional banks. Cornerstone Realty Capital assisted the Mount Vernon Co. in securing favorable terms on a four-building multifamily portfolio acquired last spring for $13.9 million. The $9.2 million came through First Republic Bank. Cornerstone aided another repeat client on the $23.5 million acquisition of 265 apartments in Malden and Medford last spring, with Greystone Servicing Corp. providing $19.5 million to Anwar Faisal for the assets that are located in five buildings. Walker & Dunlop boosted its regional presence quickly after last year’s merger with CWCapital, whose Needham-based operation had been among New England’s most active real estate finance companies when absorbed in September by the Maryland-based firm. Walker & Dunlop provided $14.4 million for Alta Woods in Stoughton to Fairfield Residential as part of the California REIT’s voracious Massachusetts multifamily buying spree of 2012 (see multifamily sales overview).

The lender also assisted Union Square Landing LLC on a $7.05 million refinancing of 301 Union St. in Franklin, a linear mill property featuring 89 residential units known as Franklin Landings. In a just-issued release, Walker & Dunlop announced its volume of multifamily loan originations crested $4 billion in 2012, enough to become the No. 1 ranked Fannie Mae DUS lender. Chairman and CEO Willy Walker terms the news “incredibly excitWILLY WALKER ing” for the organization. “Only five years ago, we were the 10th largest, struggling to keep up with the country’s largest financial services firms who dominated this business,” recounts Walker, adding, “Moving up in the rankings so quickly . . . is due to the exceptional work of the professionals at Walker & Dunlop and Fannie Mae.” The company now has more than 400 employees in 21 offices. The Needham operation has about 60 staffers who went to Walker & Dunlop; one of them is Chief Production Officer Donald P. King III, who terms the transition “quite the ride” and a commingling that went smoother than they often do for firms of their respective girths. “It actually has worked out well, because we haven’t had much client overlap” even in cases where they were in the same markets, King says, and the like-minded cultures of both firms have made it easier as well, he adds.

RETAIL DEALS

Retail Real Estate a Big Seller in 2012 BY MIKE HOBAN OSTON — High profile trades of Boston’s most popular retail sites were among the biggest stories of the investment sales market in 2012, with the buzzerbeating closing on Liberty CHRISTOPHER ANGELONE Wharf capping a robust year for an asset class that had been brutalized in the recession. The sale of the 75,000-sf mixed-use Liberty Wharf for $65.5 million to Invesco Real Estate by Cresset Development capped a WILLIAM MOYLAN flurry of retail deals that closed in the final throes of 2012. “Liberty Wharf signifies what’s going on in urban retail,” Cushman & Wakefield retail ace Geoff Millerd tells the Real Reporter. “The Seaport is NATHANIEL HEALD on fire.

The remaining 30,000 sf (office space) is also 100 percent

price above four figures. Negotiated by Eastdil Secured, a much ballyhooed competition for the Apple Store at 815-825 Boylston St. ($27.5 million) was won by Tribeca APL Boston LLC who acquired the property from Heritage Legacy LLC. Anchored by Fidelity Investments, 801 Boylston ($27 million) was acquired by Frazer Boylston Holdings LP and 28 Newbury St. yielded $26.7 million. As detailed in a focus on Back Bay sales in the Boston investment deals coverage, the trades were especially noteworthy not so much for their dollar volume as for the gaudy price-per-square foot price tags. The Apple Store fetched $1,288 per sf for the 21,350 sf trophy (built in 2006), 28 Newbury St. reaped over $1,400 per sf, and 801 Boylston (which also contains office space leased to Fidelity) went for $1,150 per sf. Both Boylston Street deals were financed by Rockland Trust Co., the Apple borrower securing an $18 million mortgage and 801 Boylston St. amounting to $17.09 million. But the retail picture wasn’t all urban trophy assets, as there was still plenty of appetite for grocery and big box-anchored shopping centers. Daniel Katz of Katz Properties certainly is an ardent admirer of the product type. “Grocery-anchored centers are really our bread and butter,” he tells the Real Reporter. “It’s a cliché, but people have to eat and tend to go to grocery-anchored shopping centers two- to three times a week—regardless of what the

economic environment is. So we’re able to keep our occupancy levels high, and we’re able to poach tenants from shopping centers that don’t have key anchors like grocers, and that helps us keep close to 100 percent occupancy.” Katz Properties made three buys in the Bay State in 2012, including a pair of Stop & Shop anchored centers in Stoughton and Fairhaven, plus a Whole Foods anchored plaza in Wayland - all with capitalization rates in the 9 percent range. The New York-based investor picked up the 81,000-sf Fairhaven Plaza for $16.5 million;

the 31,675-sf Wayland Village Plaza for $6.3 million, and the Stoughton asset yielded $15.4 million. The CBRE retail team of Christopher Angelone, William Moylan and Nat Heald represented both Katz Properties and the seller Invesco in the Stoughton transaction along with former colleague James Koury. Angelone and his team had another terrific year in 2012, with the most prominent deal being the $62.1 million Woburn Mall sale that saw Bentall Kennedy acquire the 276,000square-foot shopping center from KGI Properties. The Rhode Island-based investor which has a vast New England footprint spent just $12.5 million for the retail plaza in October 2001 before implementing the dramatic makeover. Woburn Mall is anchored by a Market Basket, with TJ Maxx and CVS as junior anchors and more than two-dozen additional stores. In the summer, the CBRE group brokered the $20.5 million sale of The Big Y at 395 High Plain St. on the Sharon/Walpole line to Los Angeles investor Maxine Dunitz Business Holdings LP. A 44,900-sf Best Buy at 14 Allstate Rd. in Dorchester (South Bay Shopping Center) went to an Edens & Avants affiliate from Vornado Realty Trust for $21 million; and the CBRE/NE team also brokered the sale of the 63,000-sf Rivers Edge Plaza in Haverhill, which went for $9.5 million. C&W engineered some pretty impressive shopping center deals as well, including four on behalf of the “other” Katz busy in Massachusetts last year—Raanan Katz of RK Centers, who picked up the 240,000-sf North River Plaza in Pembroke for $37.2 million. “It really checks all continued on page 34

the boxes,” said Millerd. “It’s what (investors) are looking for. It’s in metro Boston, its dominant supermarket-anchored, and has solid junior anchors in Kohl’s, Staples, and Dollar Tree with some vacancy (about 95 percent leased) and it was a sub-7 cap.” United States Bank financed the buyer with a $34.0 million loan. RK Centers subsequently bought another 54,000 sf across the street, properties also peddled by Millerd and the Capital Markets Group led by Robert E. Griffin Jr., Vice-Chairman Edward C. Maher Jr. and Executive Director Matthew E. Pullen. All three centers were acquired from affiliates of Dead River Properties. Just to show the company gets around, RK Centers outbid competitors to secure a WalMart anchored plaza along Route 28 in North Reading for $11.6 million in an all-cash purchase. The L-shaped center revolves around a one-time Caldor’s Department Store reinvented into anchor and in-line retail, with Marshall’s among the other tenants. The 160,000-sf plaza sits on 21 acres near the Reading town line, as detailed in the Dec. 21st Real Reporter first revealing the commitment by RK Centers, whose founder Raanan Katz is a prolific retail developer with ventures stretching from New England to Florida now exceeding six million sf. In Warwick, RI, Millerd brokered what may be the most interesting large-scale retail deal of the year, where the Rhode Island Mall went to Winstanley Enterprises and partner Surrey Equities for $38 million. What observers say makes the deal noteworthy is that it has thriv-

ing stand-alone space anchored by Sears, WalMart and Kohl's, but the enclosed mall portion has been vacant since closing in April 2011 (and is still listed on deadmalls.com). The new owners say they plan to renovate the 225,000sf mall and create larger spaces that cater to anchor tenants. Millerd also brokered a handful of deals in the third major food group of this year’s retail crop, which he calls “high-quality, non-supermarket retail.” As the year progressed, pricing levels escalated and cap rates compressed for these assets, he conveyed. “Almost everybody has money for high quality supermarketanchored retail, but because the pricing has gotten so aggressive—we’re now exceeding 2007 levels in most cases—and it’s in high demand with low supply, money is starting to look elsewhere, because (investors) want to get into retail,” explained Millerd. “So what we’re seeing is the pricing on high-quality, non-supermarket anchored retail is getting aggressive as well.” Deals of that ilk handled by C&W include a 37,925-sf plaza that closed just after the new year for Linear Retail in Salem, NH for $8 million. Linear focuses exclusively on such assets and made 10 buys in 2012 alone, including two other New Hampshire deals. “In the second half of last year, the big news was the trophy class of (retail) assets in the city like the Apple building and 801 Boylston St., with large dollar signs and low yields, but there haven’t been a lot of trades in the suburbs for good quality convenience oriented retail,” observed Aubrey Cannuscio, partner at Linear Retail. So Linear stayed in the urban market (in Massachusetts) during the second half, picking up 301-319 Columbus Ave in

In other less-heralded conclusions of 2012, a group affiliated with the Fortress Investment Group purchased 1080 Eastern Ave. in Malden, a former CVS store bought from the pharmacy giant for approximately $7 million; Charter Melrose LLC landed a former Johnny’s Foodmaster Main Street site for $8.6 million; Brewster Main St. Realty scored a 16,750 sf retail strip center in Brewster that is 95 percent occupied from Mardin Realty LLC for $2.4 million; and LMV Realty purchased a retail property at 1 Chelmsford Rd. in North Billerica for $2.75 million.

In designing the retail portion of a 175-acre mixed-use project, the developers say they wanted to mix the national chains with smaller, local shopping options. NED sold another prime retail center in 2012, cashing out on the Shops at Wisconsin Place in Chevy Chase, MD, for $113.2 million in a transaction negotiated by Cushman & Wakefield’s Boston-based Capital Markets Group that proved to be its largest retail listing of 2012. The buyer was pension fund giant TIAA-CREF, which indicated upon purchase that no significant changes are intended, a notion easy to grasp given the space is 99 percent leased to such retailers as Anthropologie, Cole Haan, Eileen Fisher, MAC Cosmetics and Talbot’s.

Net Leased Real Estate A Prized Item in 2012

WHOLE FOODS SUPERMARKET, 330 RIVER ST., CAMBRIDGE MA

BY JOE CLEMENTS OSTON — Sometimes, it is hard to know what the world is producing more of: net leased real estate or investors clamoring to buy into that asset class, but the pace of such properties trading in 2012 seemed especially elevated in New England. On the retail front, free-standing chain restaurants, pharmacies and national niche chains such as a Verizon store—two of which ROBERT HORVATH Marcus & Millichap sold in the Bay State last year— were among the most popular choices for smaller investors, market watchers relay. The surge was evident at net-lease stalwarts Marcus & Millichap, which TODD TREMBLAY had a record year, and for the ever-hustling Waltham-based team led by Robert Horvath and Todd Tremblay. They also 141 transactions, a total accommodation for

Worcester in a package sale to one buyer, listed in Registry of Deeds records as John Medeiros, who bought the assets in December while they were still being fit out. Marcus & Millichap advised seller Noble Development and procured the buyer of 87 Gold Star Blvd. in Worcester and the Westfield property on Route 20. Horvath and Tremblay completed deals from

New Hampshire to Florida and Texas last year, estimating about 60 percent of the activity was in New England. Regionally, it ranged from a 711 in Salem, NH, to high-end retail in Darien, CT. In between, there was an International House of Pancakes and second restaurant in Newington, CT, that fetched $3.24 million; netleased child care centers in Danvers ($3.1 million) and Littleton ($2.97 million); and a TD Bank-anchored plaza in Framingham that went for $1.8 million. Horvath relays the surge was not totally unexpected given the rising popularity of net leased retail, but he opines it was enhanced by outside forces such as the US Presidential election and the tax law issues that were a concern for many sellers. Whatever the formula, “it was the busiest December I’ve ever seen in the business,” says Horvath, joining with Tremblay to complete 26 assignments that month alone. One of the other top net-leased deals tendered was a Savers supermarket at 2035 Washington St. in Hanover, MA, that yielded $4.5 million in December.

INDUSTRIAL DEALS

NE Industrial Flexes Its Strength BY JOE CLEMENTS OSTON — Hands down, Colony Realty Partners gets the thumbs up for most significant industrial sale of 2012 in New England, as the firm beguiled skeptics who dismissed the value of a 1.2-million-sf portfolio that brought more than $90 million from Exeter Property Group. The buyer is a Pennsylvaniabased newcomer enthralled by the assemblage of buildings acquired by Boston-based CRP sufficient enough to win a spirited contest orchestrated by Cushman & Wakefield. The properties are in Franklin and Taunton, including 275 John Hancock Rd. (238,000 sf) and 800 John Quincy Adams Rd. (350,000 sf) in the latter community’s Myles Standish Industrial Park, with those structures developed in 2001 and 1985, respectively. Calls to CRP principals were not returned by press J.R. MCDONALD deadline and C&W officials declined to discuss the transaction that was first unveiled by therealreporter.com in late September, with the closings occurring one month later. Six of the eight buildings are in Franklin’s Forge Park, a respected corporate complex off Interstate 495. The buildings there at 8, 9, 10, 15, 20 and 22 Forge Park encompass just over 600,000 sf. The entire portfolio was 91 percent leased at the time of its October sale which was orchestrated by the C&W team of Robert E. Griffin Jr., Edward C. Maher Jr. and Matthew E. Pullen of the Capital Markets Group, who worked closely with leasing specialist J.R. McDonald as agents for Colony Realty. Tiny by comparison to nearly every other region in its industrial stock, there were a heightened number of local sales in that category consummated in 2012, a pace that some attribute to an improved economy and anticipated need for more industrial space, plus a desire to diversify on product type and geographically, making the rare institutional-grade industrial asset in New England especially coveted. Adding to the fervor on the lower end of the spectrum were the user buyers who parlayed historic low interest rates and stimulus incentives to own versus lease buildings, a common trend in 2012 for property sales as reflected in the various trades.

Whether there is indeed a correlation, the activity level for industrial sales was markedly better than in past campaigns, according to veteran brokers spoken to who add the final month was especially fervent ostensibly due to fears of a tax rate adjustment, the sort of which has indeed come through to begin 2013. One hefty deal that did not seem driven by tax matters involves a massive distribution center in Woburn that Equity Industrial Partners bought for $33 million over the summer in a sale/leaseback arrangement with Marshalls. Working through a conduit, the savvy Needham company picked up the sprawling property near the Anderson Woburn commuter rail station just behind the Woburn Mall. EIP was among several local firms that seemed to put the travails of the 2008 recession behind them in roaring back

through purchases such as the Woburn asset. One of the user sales occurred in July when Alexandria Real Estate harvested 155 Fortune Blvd. in Milford to Nitto Denko Avecia Inc., subsidiary of a leading global chemical company and long-time tenant. The 36,000-sf manufacturing facility that dates to 1986 sits on nine acres along Interstate 495, with access from Exits 19 and 20. Colliers International negotiated the sale of a facility Alexandria purchased for $6.8 million in July 2005. “It’s a very nice property,” reports Colliers Executive VP Lisa Campoli, with various improvements made over the years.

house desired by multiple bidders despite a devastating fire in the facility that caused $5 million in damages and led to its being given back to the lender, GE Credit Equities, in Nov. 2011. Richards Barry Joyce & Partners negotiated the sale of 55 Murphy Dr. from GE Credit Equities to H.N. Gorin. The Boston firm that has a legacy of developing downtown office buildings but now appears to be chasing suburban industrial bought the well-regarded Avon asset in August. JOHN EYSENBACH Principal Kristian Gibson detailed to the Real Reporter at the time plans to offer refrigerated space there to multiple parties through a third-party arrangement, a concept others say could work given changing leasing CRAIG JOHNSTON patterns favoring flexibility and a dearth of similar product. In an intriguing follow-up, H.N. Gorin last month paid $8.0 million for a 55,500-sf warehouse in Northborough, a deal backed by $5.6 million from Blue Hills Bank. It is unclear whether that investment is related to the broader concept. Certainly trying to decipher a pattern to the industrial frenzy is difficult, with a review of deals indicating widespread activity and divergent buyers. One thing appears clear, however; the flow was virtually unending from start to finish in 2012, and real estate brokers across the land were beneficiaries to the ardor. R.W. Holmes Realty of Wayland was among them,

with the firm tendering a variety of seven-figure trades. In one, Senior VP Craig S. Johnston, Senior VP and Executive VP John Eysenbach represented seller DSN Realty TR and procured the buyer of 205 Flanders Rd., Westborough, for $4,567,560. The building is a 76,125-sf manufacturing building situated on 5.6 acres. R.W. Holmes spent plenty of time in the area during 2012, also selling 145 Flanders Rd. for $1.45 million and 203 Flanders Rd. in a $1.6 million transaction. The brokerage operation had double-digit deals in excess of $1 million last year, with another substantial sale being 604 Main St. in Shrewsbury, which yielded $4.5 million for its seller. In Natick, R.W. Holmes participated in the $2.57 million sale of 177 Pine St. and 5-7 Michigan Dr., bought for $1.6 million by Michigan Drive LLC. Broker Bill Sullivan traded 108 Forest Ave. in Hudson for $1.3 million, while 135 Maple St. in Marlborough went

for $1.37 million. A Sudbury property at 80 Union Ave. changed hands for $1.7 million and in a deal to close out 2012, Johnston and Eysenbach assisted the owner of 47 Sumner St. in Milford on their sale of the 135,000-sf manufacturing building to Planet Aid, a group which promotes social causes through clothing and shoe donations. Bret O’Brien of Greater Boston Commercial Properties Inc. represented the buyer, who paid $1,250,000 for the asset to which the firm plans to relocate its regional distribution hub from 1 Cross St. in Holliston, a property which it had outWILLIAM SULLIVAN grown in recent years.

Calare Properties took on several ambitious ventures in 2012, but the one that stood out thanks to intense media scrutiny was the firm’s $8.3 million purchase with Hackman Capital of 112 Barnum Rd. in Devens, a 450,000-sf behemoth constructed at a cost of $200 million for now-defunct Evergreen Solar. That firm’s demise rocked the state BRET O’BRIEN after large amounts of funding was provided for what had been an up-andcoming star on the solar stage before burning out in the summer of 2011.

President William Manley explained in a midyear press release. “We learned that SaintGobain was looking for a premiere property with a modern infrastructure, and this building was a perfect fit,” he outlined. “This property offers significant intrinsic value,” added Michael Hackman who says he believes the asset in the Barnum Business Park located two miles from Route 2 is poised to lure even more tenants for the estimated 200,000 sf remaining.

Calare also flipped a property in Billerica, paying $1.7 million for Building Four at 900 Middlesex Tpk. in May 2011, then quickly leasing all 94,000 sf and selling it for $7.3 million in September to the RAM Cos. of Maine.

Lawyers Enjoyed Real Boost in 2012 B

BY MIKE HOBAN OSTON — They say a rising tide lifts all boats, and that seemed to be the case for the real estate practices of law firms regionally in 2012 as the CRE market continued to rebound. Firms say they saw momentum crest higher in both acquisition and lending work as the year progressed from a sluggish start to a very busy LAW FIRMS year end. Attorneys attributed some of the robust fourth quarter action to the pending capital gains increase, but acknowledged that historically low interest rates and a more competitive lending environment were also factors. “2012 got off to a bit of a soft start, and it was hard to get deals done in the first part of the year, but then the second half picked up and was really strong,” reports Saul Ewing partner Sally E. Michael. “We saw a lot more transactions and there were many, many more acquisitions and financings that came together in the second half.” In addition to closing SALLY E. MICHAEL on an $18.5 million, 91unit multifamily portfolio in Allston and West Roxbury for the Hamilton Co. in October, Michaels and Saul Ewing assisted Woburnbased KS Partners in the $65 million acquisition of an eight-building, SHERYL C. STARR 620,000-sf office portfolio in Rocky Hill, CT, from the New Boston Fund. And earlier in the year, Saul Ewing partners Jim Shulman and Don Lussier assisted RJ Kelly in picking up the Providence trophy GTECH Center office tower for $51.5 million. Michael says some of the momentum her office is experiencing is due to the merger in July 2011 when her former firm (Dionne & Gass) became the Boston office for Saul Ewing. “There are opportunities that we have now that we might not have had before,” she affirms, including work they are currently doing for STAG Industrial (via a connection at the Baltimore office) and RioCan, Canada's largest real estate investment trust, which focuses

Universal Management, the buyer of Stoney Brook Village in Millis, was provided $17.8 million after paying $21 million for that 202-unit complex, funding delivered by CBRE Multifamily Capital Inc. Another major deal was the $60 million CBRE Capital Markets Inc. provided on Station 250, the high-end apartment community bought by Archstone in August for $94.5 million, as detailed in the main multifamily investment sales story. “It’s all about being part of an integrated capital markets solution,” says Kelly, a notion shared by Butler who praises the arrival of his new partner. “We’re happy to have John on board,” he says. “It’s a real value add to our clients who can be looking at sales opportunities but also have a refinance opportunity if they decide they want to go in that direction. We can now provide that to them and a whole range of other services in the bigger platform.” CBRE/NE did until 2011 have mortgage banking veteran Paul Donahue in Kelly’s role, and having since moved on to Centerline Capital Group, Donahue was also busy in 2012 assisting clients in his post there as Managing Director. Perhaps Centerline’s most memorable deal regionally for the year was securing a 10year interest only loan through Freddie Mac on

Those funds came from Berkadia Commercial Mortgage. But it wasn’t all multifamily, as BG closed deals on office, hotels, retail centers and a single tenant car dealership property in Danvers.

Over at Davis Malm & D'Agostine, managing partner Paul L. Feldman conveyed that business picked up dramatically in “the last quarter of 2012 and into the first two months of this year. We’re definitely seeing an uptick in all types of real estate transactions, not only in financing.” Among the deals in the final quarter were construction financing arrangements for a self-storage facility at 920 E. First St. in South Boston and the new Bernardi dealership in Natick, plus a substantial lease transaction for Teladyne at Fort Devens.

Selling Out, Cashing In For Campanelli in 2012 BY MIKE HOBAN RAMINGHAM — ‘Buy Low, Sell High’ is a phrase that may well predate creation of Wall Street, but the adage seems to be a guiding philosophy Campanelli has been employing since the recession hit town in 2008.

ket and diverse tenant roster in the assets. “We believe there is significant opportunity to add value to the portfolio by capturing the growth in the Seaport and by bringing rents up to market levels.” HFF Managing Director Coleman Benedict and JOHN FOWLER Director Benjamin Sayles led the contingent representing the portfolio’s ownership. “These buildings have great bones and really lend themselves to today’s tenants,” Benedict says in a press release in which he explains the brick-and-beam buildings provided “open spaces, abundant infrastructure and collaborative work environments” sought by modern employers. Eastdil Secured Managing Director Peter Joseph also maintains the Seaport revival appears legitimate after a quarter-century of false starts. “The momentum is there and it is very strong,” says Joseph, citing access to Logan International Airport and a range of new amenities and housing options among the cornerstones of the 1,000-acre district’s popularity.

A well-known local entry jumped into the fray this spring when the Davis Cos. overtook 24 Farnsworth St. through a note acquisition that led to an outright purchase. The 75,000-sf office building that was at 15 percent occupancy when purchased is now at 50 percent, reports CEO Jonathan G. Davis, who adds he is optimistic of having the asset fully leased by year’s end. Invesco’s new conquest is credited by many for invigorating the Seaport with a roster of top-ranked restaurants in the mixed-use property that encompasses 45,000 of retail and 30,000 sf of fully leased office space. Del Friscos Steakhouse, Jerry Remy’s sports bar and a large Legal Seafoods are among the dining denizens of Liberty Wharf. “We absolutely love the asset,” Cresset principal William G. Curtis V told the Real Reporter in an article confirming his company’s intention to sell that appeared just prior to the trade in the final week of 2012. “But the numbers were just too compelling to pass up,” says Curtis, whose co-founders of the 12-year-old firm include John H.

And overseas funds who covet urban retail in core locations appeared even more driven, as London-based fund Tribeca Capital polished off other bidders with a willingness to pay a sub-4 percent capitalization rate for the Apple Store. Interestingly, Tribeca separately harvested 801 Boylston St. next door in a $27 million sale to an Irish buyer, Frazer, which spent $799 per sf for that three-story office/retail building occupied by Fidelity Investments. While concurring that the 815 Boylston St. price was an eye-popper on a per-square-foot basis, Joseph relays that New York City retail is fetching upwards of $7,000 per sf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out of control,â&#x20AC;? he says, adding the entire Back Bay is benefitting from a resurgent economy and submarket with new features such as the Mandarin Hotel right across from the Apple Store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the big retailers are moving to Boylston Street,â&#x20AC;? he conveys. Newbury Street did see its own share of action during the year, beginning with an $8.8 million sale of 225 and 227 Newbury St. to Copley Management, a deal tendered by Boston Realty Advisors on behalf of the seller, Mount Vernon Co. The brokers there were Christopher Sower and Jason S. Weissman. The next month, Mount Vernon paid $3.95 million for 254 Newbury St., then flipped it for $4.65 million in April to Copley Management. Other multi-million sales on Newbury Street in 2012 included $7.5 million for 337 Newbury St. in June, the $4.65 million trade of 270 Newbury St. in July and a $3.6 million in November for 165 Newbury St. Tribeca was the seller in that instance to Newbury & Fenway 165 LLC, an entity managed by Nowell Bloomenthal. An even larger sale followed that when a New York-based outfit paid $26.7 million for 26-28 Newbury St. The year closed out with a user deal in which the New England Genealogical Society paid $3.0 million for its longtime home at 97 Newbury St.

sales occurred last year. Synergy now controls buildings abutting both sides of the channel bridge, having previously landed 253 Summer St. The company also has a large office building around the corner on Melcher Street. A clamor among firms to be in the Seaport District is helping Synergy holdings there, says Greaney, but he voices equal confidence in the Financial District purchase of 2 Oliver St. that occurred in midDecember. Both the sub77 SUMMER ST., BOSTON MA market and the 222,000sf office/retail building suffered mightily in the recession as many tenants headed for the Back Bay and Seaport District while others disappeared in a downsizing that hit traditional tenants especially hard. A sea change of sorts occurred in recent months, however, as the Financial District again became a popular option for companies from emerging industries. Having been buying under the radar throughout the Financial Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woes, Greaney might have hoped the rebound had been kept under wraps a bit more, with C&W assembling a bevy of bidders chasing 2 Oliver St. despite the assetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prior troubles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very pleased to have acquired that property,â&#x20AC;? Greaney says after outlasting the competition in a deal he still insists will provide sufficient upside to the property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not the 2 Oliver St. of old,â&#x20AC;? he stresses, crediting sellers AEW Capital and Saracen Properties for putting in motion a capital improvements and lease-up campaign that opened up a new entranceway, plus restored mechanicals and common areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We intend to finish the job,â&#x20AC;? Greaney says in reporting leases are already in the works for some of the unfilled space. As to the Financial District itself, Greaney says even in making plays in the Back Bay, Seaport District and down to North Quincy that he anticipated the central business district would regain its prior energy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the heart and soul of the Boston office market and it is coming back very strong,â&#x20AC;? he says, adding 2 Oliver St. does reflect the firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferred asset type. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are urban investors and we always will be,â&#x20AC;? he vows.  250 SUMMER ST., BOSTON MA

winning that listing against spirited competition for the 51,000-sf laboratory facility pegged in the $50 million range price-wise as a sale/leaseback deal involving Pfizer. South of town, JLL is exclusive agent for Braintree Executive Park. The team is kicking off 2013 celebrating its first MICHAEL COYNE asset expected to approach $100 million, that being 40 Broad St. in Boston’s Financial District. According to Petz, the local operation also consists of a premier downtown brokerage unit that can provide leasing insights, and runs one of New England’s biggest property management groups and construction units able to give suitors comfort on the structural integrity of older assets such as 40 Broad St., a 291,000-sf building that dates to TRAVIS D’AMATO 1923. As it is, Petz says the stewardship for the past seven years has been good to the building’s infrastructure— “they’ve done a lot of work there,” he relays—but says the ability to make such judgments assuages concerns for potential suitors. “We think we have something different to offer,” Petz says. “We have the full capital markets platform plus the total (range) of leasing, property management and construction services, and that is something you don’t see very often.” Leasing brokers are especially key, maintains Petz. “They can tell you not only what is happening right now, but where rents are heading in the future, and that JONATHAN SCHNEIDER really matters,” he says. Yet another field Petz wants JLL to pursue is multifamily. “As you look around Boston, it’s definitely the hottest product type, and we need to be doing that,” he says in predicting the hiring of veterans Michael Coyne and Travis D’Amato to head up that team gives JLL a solid foundation to go up against a wide roster of competitors on the small- and mid-sized circuit plus a couple of dominant players for major transactions. In the latter instance, the field is led by Simon J. Butler and Biria St. John, with Apartment Realty Advisors also a formidable competitor across multiple states. Marcus & Millichap is big in Connecticut, although Petz acknowledges Butler and St. John are the top shop around, with the two having just sold $710 million in their first year peddling multifamily at CBRE/New England following five years at Cushman COURTNEY O’NEAL & Wakefield, another powerhouse which has brought in its own new team to take on CBRE/NE. D’Amato now has a decade of experience after honing his craft at several leading multifamily enterprises including the WinnCompanies, ARA and most recently CBRE/NE. A graduate of Dartmouth College, he has completed in excess of 50 sales totaling more than $1 billion. D’Amato is a Senior VP, as is Coyne, who has transacted more than $1.5 billion in a real estate career that also includes time at CBRE, as well as positions with Deutsche Bank, Recap Real Estate Advisors and TriSail Capital Corp. Gleason will also assist the group, which Petz expresses confidence about despite the stiff competition for multifamily listings. “We think we have a unique approach (sellers) might want to consider,” he says, contending the dominance by one team is unusual. “It’s pretty rare in a sophisticated market like Boston,” he says, adding, “We’d like to see that change.”

Managing Director Riaz Cassum says tends to feed off itself. “We get quite a bit of business from that,” he says, an outlook exemplified by the $2.0 billion in debt volume processed by HFF in 2012 compared to $1.6 billion for investment sales and other strategies such as recapitalizations. The debt—and equity—action was not limited to the Seaport, with HFF helping buyer and borrowers— and often both— throughout Boston and beyond. In the Back Bay, as detailed on page four, HFF helped the seller of 28 Newbury St. yield an incredible $1,400 per sf-plus for the three-story retail building that is leased to Banana Republic, and was also broker for 441 Stuart St., a 163,775-sf office building acquired for $40 million by Synergy Investment.

behalf of Rubenstein Properties when it was bought by real estate investor Michael A. Manzo. “The portfolio sale presented the opportunity for the Manzo Co. to purchase Class B office and industrial properties that offer significant upside potential,” Jacoby recounted. The massive properties include, Station Mills, a 315,000-sf flex property in Walpole that includes parking for 627 vehicles, while another 400,000 sf is in North Dighton; and the last two are net-leased industrial structures in Taunton that are 100 percent occupied to lone tenants. Joining Manzo Co. in the venture are partners Tambone Investment Group and affiliates of Old Hill Partners. “We’re pleased,” says Jacoby in assessing 2012. “It was busier than 2010 or 2011, and we were straight out to the bitter end,” in some respects with no one to credit but themselves given a willingness to manufacture listings as they did in Cambridge that FRED WITTMANN resulted in $18.8 million yielded for two clients. Another grateful client is Calare Properties after a favorable experience in buying the then-distressed Building 4 at 900 Middlesex Tpk. in Billerica last May for $1.7 million before restoring the 94,175-sf property, leasing it for 10 years to global digital printing equipment firm LaserMax Roll Systems, and harvesting it in September for $7.3 million. Hudson-based Calare, which had its own event-filled 2012, did not have the building for sale when NAI/Hunneman brought an unsolicited offer from the RAM Cos., a Maine-based firm active in northern Massachusetts who went on to buy the stabilized asset. Calare President Bill Manley later conveyed that his firm was able to see beyond a rough façade and interior for the unique mix of high-quality office and industrial space. “With our experience and knowledge within the market, we recognized that with some improvements, 900 Middlesex would be highly BEN SAYLES desirable to manufacturing companies,” and wound up attracting the world’s largest maker of equipment for digital printers. Calare separately bought an even larger property in December, picking up 25 Tucker Dr. in Leominster for $11.6 million on a speculative deal arranged by Tim O’Callaghan of Binswanger. The property totals nearly 600,000 sf, and Calare Portfolio Manager Brian Poitras later told the Real Reporter that his firm has confidence the firm can compete for large users who might have interest in 75,000 sf of mezzanine and office product, 132,000 sf of manufacturing space and 381,500 sf of warehouse. continued on page 60

Interestingly, Jacoby and company were only part of the NAI/Hunneman operation influencing CRE sales; 2012 proved another productive year for Catherine Minnerly and Ovar Osvold in the South submarkets where they completed both leases and major property sales. Veteran Robert Tito Sr. has been working with Gina Barroso and Robert Tito Jr. scouring the area for listings, and in 2012, they came up with several closings, including Marrett Square in Lexington, a 16,800-sf retail center within a half-mile of the town center.

The capital markets business at Colliers International had a heavy dose of urban retail in 2012—and that was no coincidence, group leader Lisa Campoli says in explaining the listing of two Back Bay retail units and a pair of Cambridge storefronts to Linear Retail were products of a strategy to pursue that sector. “Everybody wants urban retail,” she observes in acceding the challenge is finding enough sellers, making the 2012 listings by the team even more impressive.

Colliers then led Linear across the Charles River to 85 and 107 First St., buildings situated near the CambridgeSide Galleria in the technology Mecca of Kendall Square. Whereas the Back Bay holding is more a net-leased opportunity, Campoli explains the filled First Street buildings give the new owner a value-add opportunity down the road. “There will be pressure for rents to move up as they go along,” she says, adding superior cash flow was an element of strength for a boutique property RCG of Somerville bought for $4.15 million.

says Campoli, with Coldwell Banker and Hi-Rise Bakery among four tenants who fill the entire building. In acknowledging stiff competition for urban retail listings, Campoli argues her firm is particularly adept thanks to both the International part of the Colliers name and having a deep and experienced retail leasing operation in metropolitan Boston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are able to give top-tier service to the seller through our global Colliers International platform that we can use to find buyers from all over the world,â&#x20AC;? Campoli says while praising the Boston office for possessing â&#x20AC;&#x153;unparalleled expertise on the ground.â&#x20AC;? Colliers was hardly a one-trick pony in 2012 on LAUREN Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;NEIL the sales front, with other properties handled including the sale of 15-45 Dan Rd. in Canton and 155 Forbes Blvd. in Milford. As in the case of their focus on retail, being flexible is part of the Colliers plan as well, she adds, primarily because investors are considering alternatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2011, people all wanted the same thingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;core CBD real estate, but now they are willing to go off Main & Main in order to find the opportunities that can bring them what they want mostâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;yield,â&#x20AC;? says Campoli. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is why they are willing to be more flexible.â&#x20AC;? Colliers handled a significant sale in downtown Boston when 126 State St. traded for $6.72 million, giving the local buyer a small but supremely located asset in the Financial District, and Campoli counts One JAMES KOURY Alewife Center in Cambridge among its listings. Still, record low interest rates and the robust regional economy have further steeled investors to compromise on geography, and Campoli says her team that includes Gail McDonough, Katie Davenport and Ann Kerwin is gearing up for a busy 2013. Asked of the just-completed campaign, Campoli says it does appear many of the aims were attained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always glamorous, but we had some good, solid deals, and that is what is most important to us, helping the clientâ&#x20AC;? maximize property potential.

Colleague Robert Cronin handled a significant land sale in 2012 when 6.2 acres near Logan International Airport in East Boston was sold to a developer who later won approvals to build a hotel at the property  that sits along McClellan Highway and yielded $3.75 million.

Nordlund did nine deals for a total consideration of $12.5 million in 2012, the largest $2.2 million in early December when 206 South Main Street LLC bought a property bearing that address in Middleton from Nordlund’s client, J.E.S. II Realty Trust, whose family ownership in the single-story industrial property dated to 1971. The 45,000-sf building is located on 2.4 acres along Route 114 (South Main Street) just north of Interstate 95. Nordlund had a jam-packed fourth quarter, completing two separate industrial building trades representing both sides in each case on October 1st when 55 Mitchel Rd. (9,600 sf) in Ipswich yielded $700,000 and Wakefield’s 247 Water St. (11,625 sf) brought $1.1 million. Both deals involved user/buyers. That pace kept up for Nordlund to the very last day of 2012 when a 9,000-sf industrial property at 241 Newbury St. (Route One) in Danvers delivered $1.25 million for Nordlund’s client, the Meg Cos. of New Hampshire. ReMax represented the buyer of the 9,000-sf auto dealership sandwiched between Routes 62 and 114. In November, Nordlund sold a 32,000-sf Peabody office building at 84 Newbury St. (Route One south) for $2.02 million on behalf of Sawyer Realty Holdings to Philopater LLC, managed by Emad S. Younan. Nordlund— and the public—know the building well, with Everest having negotiated its prior sale for $1.2

million in April 2011 to Needham-based Sawyer and was then named leasing agent. The threestory, 31,000-sf structure is the former home of East West Mortgage; it was foreclosed on in April 2009 by Wainwright Bank.

Notable listings of 2012 included a 10,000-sf Newton office building ultimately won by a user at a price of $283 per sf, a level Freid says is rarely achieved for such product in that area. The team also helped a Newton client acquire a key land parcel in between two existing buildings, and sold 395 Worcester St. (Route 9) in Natick, a 6,200-sf retail building occupied by a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Signature Store through 2015. Freid and Meixner were joined by d’Hemecourt on pitching that building which yielded $1.42 million the final week of the year. The firm tendered $70 million in the fourth quarter alone, and had four deals above $1 million wrap in December, headlined by the $31.6 million closing of 18-28 JFK St. in Harvard Square, known to denizens of the famous district as the longtime home of Pizzeria Uno, as well as other retailers and apartments. “We had contributions from everybody,” Weissman says as BRA’s second decade commences. “The whole team was pleased with 2012,” continues its founder. “We took on a lot of significant properties and worked on many product types in a lot of different markets, and that (reflects) the wide range of expertise we can offer to our clients.” The multifamily division run by Weissman and Sower did a series of significant transactions (see multifamily investments seccontinued on page 63

RJ Kelly Bets on Rhode Island for $51.5M BY MIKE HOBAN ROVIDENCE, RI — RJ Kelly President and CEO Brandon Kelly likes to characterize his firm’s acquisition strategy as “staying ahead of the curve”—which certainly appeared to be the case for their blockbuster 2012 acquisition of the 210,000-sf GTECH Center here for $51.5 million. While many investors were chasing high-priced, low cap assets in the Boston/Cambridge market, RJ Kelly quietly made what many observers tout as an intelligent play in a non-core market, with the gleaming, 10story tower in downtown Providence having been positioned through Cushman & Wakefield’s Capital Markets Group in that very light. “It was very attractive for us to go to Providence at a time when the majority of the investors were focusing on core and coreplus and didn’t favor secondary markets as much as we do,” conveys Kelly, BRANDON KELLY whose construction, development and investment firm is based in Burlington, MA. “We saw a great opportunity to go to a market like Providence to buy a best-in-class asset at a steep discount to what TEN MEMORIAL BLVD., PROVIDENCE RI you’d pay in the primary SCOTT KELLY 172,000-sf complex in Portsmouth, a 7.4-acre markets.” Described by its new owner as the premier park enhanced by 24,000 sf of retail that was office building “not only in the Providence mar- picked up in November 2011 for $10.8 million, ket, but in the state”—10 Memorial Blvd. was and the second was a,57,000 sf self storage purchased from Commonwealth Ventures for facility located in Lee, NH, bought in 2012.

New Director of Investments Rick Griffin told the Real Reporter upon joining RJ Kelly in late 2012 that Rhode Island would continue to be of interest to the firm, as well as other New England locations where suitable deals can be identified. Maine is a potential market, adds Kelly, and Griffin came directly from KS Partners where he was on the team which cobbled together a 700,000-sf Connecticut portfolio purchase. Working for the prolific KS Partners over the past two years gave Griffin a macro sense of that state and other New England markets, and he says that should enable RJ Kelly to stay tuned into the tertiary prospects across the region. “I’m excited,” Griffin said of the new continued on page 67

$16M Finard Purchase Gives Biltmore Life BY JOE CLEMENTS ROVIDENCE — In one of the more upbeat Ocean State deals of 2012, Finard Coventry Hotel Management bought the beloved Providence Biltmore, a 292-room landmark hotel located in the heart of downtown. Originally constructed in 1922 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977, the hotel is remaining open during a $10 million renovation, while Preferred Hotels and Resorts has been installed as operator of the 18-story Beaux-arts structure that has a prominent place on the Providence skyline. “We are delighted to become stewards of this iconic hotel that is so much a part of the fabric of the city,” principal Todd B. Finard said upon his Boston-based firm’s purchase of the property out of receivership under the entity FC Biltmore LLC. FCHM also secured a $16.8 million mortgage TODD B. FINARD from RBS Citizens that is being partly used to upgrade the inn. “It will be an honor to restore this architectural treasure known for its legendary hospitality and charm,” said Finard, whose firm was advised during the JOSHUA M. BOWMAN complex acquisition process by Sherin and Lodgen LLP partner Joshua M. Bowman, an expert in the hospitality arena who also assisted his client on debt and equity financing structuring for the asset. The scope of the planned renovation includes building new infrastructure and systems; a new roof; repair of exterior façade brickwork and remodeling of the ballrooms and meeting rooms, guestrooms, corridors and lobby. The wide-ranging program could take up to two years to complete. Located at 11 Dorrance St., the Providence Biltmore contains 19,000 sf of function space including 18 meeting and banquet rooms and a rooftop grand ballroom that is home to more than 75 weddings per year and many notable events. The hotel has a McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant and a Starbucks in the lobby. Other amenities include the luxurious Spa at the Providence Biltmore, a business cen-

ter and fitness center. FCHM is taking on the hotel as the Rhode Island hospitality sector fights to emerge from the 2008 recession, and indications from industry research firm Pinnacle Advisory Group shows the recovery appears to be inching forward. Occupancy has risen from 61.7 percent in 2010 to 62.5 percent, Pinnacle reports, while the Average Daily Rate is up from $112.31 to $120.12 in that same time frame while Revenue Per Available Room is at $75.04, a 5.8 percent gain from 2010. Conditions are even healthier for Providence, which Pinnacle pegs at 67.9 percent for occupancy versus 63.8 percent in 2010. Average Daily Rate is $137.94 compared to $126.42 to start the decade, and RevPAR has soared by 11.8 percent to $93.70. The projection for 2013 is occupancy to hit 69 percent, Average Daily Rate of $141.40 and RevPar of

$97.56 in Providence. The Providence Biltmore is also expected to benefit from no new hotel construction over the near term plus a boost in convention business, which was up by more than 25 percent in 2012.

1600 DIVISION RD., WEST WARWICK RI

BY JOE CLEMENTS EST WARWICK, RI — Brookwood Financial Partners was not exactly stalking 1600 Division Rd., but when an opportunity arose in 2012 to acquire the hulking 550,000-sf flex/industrial building through a non-performing note sale from RBS Citizens, the Massachusetts-based investor did not hestitate, principal Thomas W. Brown recalls to the Real Reporter. “It was a deal that just made a lot of sense to us,” Brookwood’s acquisitions director recounts after the firm took over the building for $9.9 million via a pre-negotiated deed-in-lieu of foreclosure agreed to by RBS Citizens and the borrower, TC Warwick LLC, an affiliate of Trammell Crow. Although Brookwood does already own property in Rhode Island as part of a national investment platform, Brown says the firm was not targeting deals there specifically. “You have to be pretty careKURT ZERNICH ful when you are buying down there,” he says. “You have to be selective and really think things through.” In the case of 1600 Division Rd., the prognosis was favorable, Brown explains, due to such features as quick highway access to Interstate 95, clear heights in the warehouse portion to 40 feet and 100,000 sf of office space. At just under 50 percent leased to such firms as Metropolitan Life Insurance and Nova Records, the structure does offer a measure of cash flow as well, and Brown says the ability to be competitive on rents and having such hefty swaths of space available should enable 1600 Division Rd. to vie for larger users and fill the fallow portions in spite of the anemic Rhode Island economy. One trend Brookwood has noticed, he adds, is of companies consolidating their distribution facilities. “We think that could be a real benefit to us,” he says of the 40-year-old building that sits on 51.9 acres and has contiguous warehouse space up to 150,000 sf. “Given our low cost basis in the property, we will be able to offer very attractive rental rates and generous tenant improvement allowances,” adds Kurt Zernich, Brookwood’s Director of Asset Management. Since 1993, the firm has invested more than $500 million to buy 115 properties from California to Maine and nine states in beween.

$11.5M Takes 160,000-SF NH Park BY JOE CLEMENTS EDFORD, NH — A three-building office park here just south of Manchester was among the marquee investment sales in the Granite State during 2012, with Farley White Interests committing $11.5 million for the 160,000 sf of first-class space that was about 70 percent leased when purchased. Boston-based Farley White is among several investors impressed by the state’s low unemployment rate and other factors to buy into a tertiary market, with the firm already owning another Bedford park and last month paying $2.6 million for a five-story DENIS DANCOES office building off Route 3 in Nashua. “New Hampshire has been a good place to do business,” Farley White principal John F. Power told BEDFORD EXECUTIVE OFFICE PARK, BEDFORD NH the Real Reporter after completing the 60,000-sf Nashua acquisition to kick THOMAS FARRELLY off 2013 on a high note. That sale of Executive Tower at 61 Spit Brook Rd. was handled by Cassidy Turley FHO, whereas Cushman & Wakefield was exclusive agent for the Bedford Executive Office Park that was listed on SUE ANN JOHNSON behalf of seller Northland.

NH Users Guide Way to CRE Buys BY JOE CLEMENTS ERRIMACK, NH — Good things continued to happen in 2012 for this town just north of Nashua as the Granite State base of Fidelity Investments landed another major company following Atrium Medical Corp.’s $15.5 million purchase of 40 Continental Blvd. Its new owner intends to occupy the empty 115,000-sf office building after an expansion of up to 250,000 sf. The corporate coup was announced just as Merrimack was celePETER BILLIPP brating the opening of its new 600,000-sf outlet mall at Exit 10 of Route 3, a complex that brought hundreds of new jobs to the region. Another 700 are expected to ultimately be employed at Atrium’s Merrimack campus. JEANNE BUTLER Negotiated by Cushman & Wakefield advising seller Paradigm Properties and Tamposi-Nash Real Estate Group representing Atrium, the summertime sale of 40 Continental Blvd. was an especially striking example of how tenants throughout New Hampshire joined a national trend of acquiring versus renting commercial property.

M

CERATEC BUILDING., AMHERST NH

40 CONTINENTAL BLVD., MERRIMACK NH

Fueled by record low interest rates and special financing such as Small Business Administration loans, user activity was up tenfold by some estimates compared to a normal year, and at a time when investor ardor is tepid for buying vacant or partly empty buildings in secondary markets, the surge has been welcomed by owners eager to divest those holdings (See related story, page 46). Built in 1983 on 55 acres, 40 Continental Blvd. was renovated in 2005 but had been left

empty by Fidelity after exercising an option to terminate early, consolidating staff to its larger campus in the community. Paradigm Properties, had acquired 40 Continental Blvd. full for $12.5 million. One observer points out how the $15.5 million for an empty building reflects the ability of a user to pay more for a given asset than an investor. On the flip side, the Merrimack deal reportedly saved Atrium a substantial amount over an alternative plan to do a build-to-suit structure that was being pursued aggressively when 40 Continental Blvd. caught the eye of company officials. “It’s a huge win for both sides,” a source says of Atrium and Paradigm. Efforts to contact the buyer were unsuccessful by press deadline, but Paradigm did relay its satisfaction in a Real Reporter article upon completion of the transaction. The C&W New Hampshire team of Denis Dancoes, Thomas Farrelly and Sue Ann Johnson worked on the deal for Paradigm while William Luers was Atrium’s broker. Atrium Medical is expected to relocate employees from its longtime headquarters in Hudson by June 2014, and has put that 140,000-sf property at 5 Wentworth Dr. up for sale. Work is expected to commence at 40 Continental Blvd. near term. One market veteran notes that Merrimack is home to several leading firms including Budweiser, and cites a continued on page 71

combination of good highway access along Route 3, proximity to the Massachusetts border and lower real estate costs. The Paradigm site also secured special state economic incentives considered another attraction for Atrium. Another excess property—this one on Route 101A in Amherst— has also found new life after being on the sales block since 2008. NAI/Norwood Group broker Jeanne Butler was agent for Ceratec Corp. in the trade of the 53,000-sf industrial/retail building that sits on a 19acre parcel. The buyer, Marmon Utilities, was represented by Brad Vear of Vear Commercial. “We have been looking for six years for the right building, and the Ceratec property was the perfect fit,” Marmon President Michael Garratt said after his injection molding firm completed the acquisition last summer. In the same press release, Butler explained how her client opted to lease a portion of the so-called Ceratec Building to offset expenses while the right prospect was identified, a process she relayed was lengthened due to the torpid economy and unique location. The answer proved to be Marmon, with the key roadblock being a variance needed to allow for light manufacturing. “Marmon’s team of engineers, construction and manufacturing specialists were very pleased with the quality of the building, and once the variance was granted . . . they moved very quickly toward a sale,” Butler relays in the press release. The SBA 504 loan program for building users came into play in another 2012 transaction in Rochester, as Humphries Industrial Products paid $1.1 million for 22 Nadeau Dr. in Rochester. The buyer is a Somersworth rubber products company relocating into the 25,000-sf flex/industrial building after engaging Kane Co. broker Peter Billipp to find an alternative location featuring good highway access, with 22 Nadeau Dr. situated right off the Spaulding Turnpike. David F. Choate III of Grubb & Ellis negotiated for the seller, who had owned the asset since paying $660,000 in 1999, as relayed by the Real Reporter in an October 2012 article on the transaction. Granite State Economic Development Corp. secured the SBA 504 funding through Northway Bank. Also known as the Odyssey Press Building, 22 Nadeau Dr. proved a better option for his client than building new, Billipp says of the 25-year-old structure that sits on 5.3 acres in a small business park close to Route 125 that connects to the Spauldiing Turnpike. Funds from the Northway loan will be used to � improve the building by Humphries.

One property that does well in all three spheres that changed hands is the Holiday Inn Express at 175 Key Rd. in Keene, an 80-unit asset bought by a local investor for $3.82 million after a spirited competition run by Wason Associates. “We had quite a bit of interest in it,” says President Earle Wason, who attributes EARLE WASON the solid market reaction to the facility having “impeccably maintained rooms” and HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS, KEENE NH a prime location just blocks from the city’s downtown and Keene State College. “It is a fine property that has been well-managed over the years, and recent renoPETER ANNON vations made it an exceptional piece of real estate to be purchased,” says Wason, with Keene Hotel Corp. spending more than $1 million to upgrade the facility prior to its sale to OS&S LLC.

A Busy Season for Drinkwater, Richard Team BY JOE CLEMENTS EST HARTFORD, CT — If variety is the spice of life, the Marcus & Millichap team of Laurie Ann (L.A.) Drinkwater and Seth J. Richard must have had a tangy 2012 in negotiating a cornucopia of real estate sales throughout Connecticut, including a pair of retail assets here that each attracted aggressive bidding. Other deals exceeding $1 million handled by the duo ranged from a Mobil service station in Avon to apartment properties in New London and Woodstock. The Berkshire Bank at 927 Farmington Ave. in West Hartford was the largest of the five, its $2.91 million price tag amounting to $1,085 per sf for the 2,680-sf building that formerly housed the Franklin Trust Credit Union. Berkshire Bank signed a 20-year, triple-net lease in May. The deal was handled LAURIE ANN DRINKWATER in partnership with the Boston office of Marcus & Millichap, as Robert Horvath and Todd Tremblay helped Drinkwater and Richards expose the opportunity to a range of prospects and ultimately represented the buyer. SETH RICHARD Besides what the listing team terms as “attractive increases in the rent schedule,” Drinkwater says the building’s location in West Hartford’s central business district was another drawing card, while the tenant has been on a growth spurt, now approaching $1 billion in assets following a series of acquisitions including Beacon Federal Bancorp. Inc. “Although Berkshire Bank is not an investmentgrade tenant, the benefit of the tenant’s financial strength allowed us to price and close accordingly at an aggressive cap rate,” explains Richard, with the buyer meeting the original list price. Less than two miles away from 927 Farmington Ave., a 5,150-sf strip center known as Boulevard Plaza also received a favorable response from investors when listed by Drinkwater and Richard, as the multi-tenanted Boulevard Plaza at 1037 Boulevard fetched $1.87 million, or nearly $365 per sf. Having provided the owners with property analyses on

this site since 2010, Drinkwater relays the group “was finally ready to reallocate their equity and we were prepared and wellequipped to sell on their behalf, resulting in an offer the same day it hit the market which went to escrow just 20 days later.” Richard notes the property is fully leased to regional and national tenants including Dunkin Donuts, Pizza Hut and Subway and has “a prime location” within the community. “This was a very rare opportunity to acquire a triple-net, multi-tenant retail property in one of the most sought-after communities in

Connecticut, which contributed to the quick disposition process of 70 days from listing to closing and included a complex due-diligence process,” Richard outlined. The Avon assignment also wrapped up quickly in a $1.86 million exchange in which Marcus & Millichap advised the seller of a newly leased gas station at the junction of Routes 44 and 167. “We delivered the seller an offer that went into contract with an eight-day closing on an all-cash basis,” reveals Richard continued on page 75

returns on its investment while having the potential for substantial long-term value appreciation.” Corporate Ridge is comprised of 55 and 175 Capital Blvd. and 500 Enterprise for a total of just over 500,000 sf. I-91 Tech Center is a fivebuilding asset totaling 115,000 sf of flex and office space. The portfolio was 87 percent leased at the time of its sale, with tenants including the American Cancer Society, Liberty Mutual Insurance, MetLife, United Healthcare, URS Corp., Verizon and Zurich Insurance. New Boston Fund was represented by CBRE/NE and brokers John McCormick, Patrick Mulready and Michael Puzzo from the Hartford office, plus Jeffrey Dunne of CBRE’s New York Capital Markets team.

joined by Andy Daitch and Paul Davis on both sides of an $11.2 million transfer of the Berger Apartments at 135 Derby Ave. The Project-Based Section 8 rent subsidized property that has 144 units was acquired from AIMCO by Steele Property Holding LLC. Besides 21 two-bedroom units, the Section 8 contract for the elderly covers the property’s 123 one-bedroom units. Dating to 1900, the historic property once housed the Berger Brothers Corset Factory and was converted to apartments in 1981 using CHFA funding that matured last February. Historic occupancy in the development is sub-2 percent, relays Witten. Amenities include a game room, laundry facilities, library and outdoor courtyard. A per-unit price of $87,784 was achieved in the late summer sale of the Brittania Apartments at 234 Sherman Ave. in Meriden, a deal Nolletti and Witten handled for the seller along with colleague Eric Pentore while also procuring the

buyer. That group, 234 Sherman LLC, was represented legally by Meister Seelig & Fein LLP with Pullman & Conley LLC, while seller Taymil Britannia LLC was counseled by Ford & Paulekas. Highlights of that asset which fetched $7.7 million include an exercise facility, indoor swimming pool and covered garage parking. The property has 34 one-bedroom units, 20 twobedroom units and four three-bedroom units, plus 29 two-bedroom townhouse apartments and one three-bedroom townhouse. IPA’s Connecticut office is one of New England’s leading brokers of multifamily properties, with the Nolletti and Witten team cresting $100 million in 2012 activity. Other accomplishments of note for the team was a $21.7 million sale of 184 units in Beacon Falls; the $14.7 million trade of 305 units in Hartford; and a Providence, RI, deal involving 106 units that brought $4.65 million. 

Switching to the multifamily stage, Drinkwater and Richard yielded $2.62 million for the Washington Street Apartments in New London. The 29-unit complex was developed out of an historic building that once served as a telephone exchange center for New England Telephone Co. Its restoration in 2002 included roof resurfacing and replacement of all mechanical systems, transforming the building to the point the sale price per unit exceeds $90,000. The hefty price was aided by being in an undersupplied market, says Drinkwater, and due to the extensive overhaul of the property by

their client, a New York-based investor, Amber Washington Associates. The team also procured the buyer, 73/86 Washington LLC. “There is unprecedented demand for these types of assets,” says Drinkwater. The other apartment property brokered by Drinkwater and Richard is a 33-unit property at 150 Harrisville Rd. in Woodstock. The gardenstyle complex features three buildings with 11 one-bedroom units and 22 two-bedroom units set on six acres. It commanded a price of $1.3 million and a capitalization rate of 5.75 percent.

from three universities, empty nesters and young professionals. “We believe the new ownership has the opportunity to increase cash flow and occupancy through operational and managerial enhancements in one of the country’s best performing apartment markets,” Noletti outlined. Wintergreen of Westfield’s units are in a quintet of four-story, elevatored buildings. Amenities include a 24-hour fitness facility, club room with big-screen television, billiards and gourmet kitchen and a high-tech business center. Executive Directors based in IPA’s New Haven office, Witten and Nicolletti represented the seller, SA Wintergreen LLC, and procured the buyer, UOB Eagle Rock Multifamily Property Fund LP. In yet another New Haven listing that closed in the fourth quarter, Nolletti and Witten were

who cites the long-term lease “with absolutely no landlord responsibilities” and an attractive rental stream for contributing to the quick response. “This heavily traveled corner is an ideal location for a gas station and ensures its long-term viability at this signalized corner,” adds Drinkwater, pointing out the large amount of retail in the corridor, including the 426,000sf Shoppes at Farmington Valley mall anchored by Shop Rite, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Kohl’s.
