Jones Lang LaSalle Closes $31M Sale of Capitol City Business Center in Salem, Oregon

Capitol City Business Center Sold for $31 million

PORTLAND, OR, Feb. 7, 2012 — Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has arranged the sale of Capitol City Business Center located in Salem, Oregon on behalf of Angelo Gordon and Meriwether Partners. An institutional owner focused on owning real estate leased to government tenants purchased the 233,358-square-foot office space for nearly $31 million. 
Managing Directors Buzz Ellis and Michel Seifer along with Vice Presidents Paige Morgan and Aaron Herter led the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction.

“Investors looking to expand their foot print in the Pacific Northwest generated a wide range of interest for Capitol City and the firm was able to secure competitive pricing for Angelo Gordon and Meriwether Partners,” said Ellis. “The buyer will do well with the asset as the project provides a strong current return and the opportunity to increase value through leasing to new prospects and expansion of existing tenants.” 

Capitol City Business Center, at 4600 25th Avenue NE, is located in Oregon’s state capital, off Interstate 5, making it a prime office space with several government-backed tenants. In 2007, the property underwent a significant renovation including new entrances, lobbies, corridors, landscaping and building systems. The top-of-the-line space is currently 85 percent occupied and has a highly sustainable ENERGY STAR rating of 92.
