Jones Lang LaSalle Closes Sale of 70 Hawes Way in Stoughton to Legacy Hawes, LLC

BOSTON, March 12, 2012 — Jones Lang LaSalle announces that the Investment Sales team has executed the sale of 70 Hawes Way, two separate office and industrial buildings in Stoughton, MA. The fully leased buildings totaling 25,254 square feet on a 4.5 acre site immediately off Route 24 were sold by South Shore Development Trust to Legacy Hawes, LLC, an entity controlled by Legacy Real Estate Ventures, LLC. This is Legacy Real Estate Ventures’ ninth purchase over their four year existence. The sale price was $2,850,000.

The Jones Lang LaSalle team representing the seller and procuring the buyer was: Managing Directors Scott Jamieson and Michael Smith, Assistant Vice President Brandon Dickason and Associate Courtney O’Neal.

“We almost took a pass on this asset until Scott and his team articulated the benefits,” said Michael L. Price, Principal of Legacy Real Estate Ventures. “Great location and access, a solid credit tenant, and strong redevelopment potential were key to our moving forward on this deal.”

The property at 70 Hawes Way is comprised of a 10,854-square-foot two-story office building and a 14,400-square-foot industrial facility that are 100% occupied by J.C. Higgins, a division of EMCOR. The buildings are adjacent to The Shoppes at Paige Pointe, a newly constructed retail center that includes Target, TGI Friday’s, and LA Fitness.

“South Shore Development Trust has been a long-time owner of these exceptionally well located buildings,” Jones Lang LaSalle’s Jamieson said. “This is a prototypical investment for Legacy Real Estate Ventures, providing solid cash flow and value-creation potential.”

Financing was provided by Cambridge Savings Bank. The property will be managed by Eastport Real Estate Services.
