Jones Lang LaSalle Completes Sales of Two Properties at The Round at Beaverton Central

Transactions totalling almost $22M position troubled development for future


Portland, Ore., May 17, 2012 — Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has completed the sale of two properties in transactions totalling almost $22 million at The Round at Beaverton Central, a partially completed, transit-friendly development in the heart of Beaverton, Ore.

In the first transaction, the City of Beaverton paid $8.65 million for the 104,772 square foot South Office building at 21725 S.W. Millikan Way in an REO sale.  The seller was LNR Property LLC.  Vice President Paige Morgan, Managing Director Buzz Ellis and Vice President Andrew Rosengarten of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Portland office represented the seller. 

The office building is currently 42 percent leased, including a long term lease to the City of Beaverton covering 15 percent of the building in which it operates a heating, cooling and hot water plant designed to serve the entire development.   The City is studying the feasibility of eventually moving its entire City Hall operations to the South Office building from its current location on Griffiths Drive. 

The second transaction involved the $13.25 million sale of a three-building, 159,979-square-foot commercial development to Portland investor ScanlanKemperBard.  Morgan and Ellis  represented the seller. 

The properties, which were 72 percent leased, consist of a 121,032-square-foot office building whose major tenants include 24 Hour Fitness and Anthem College, a parking garage and The Crescent Promenade with 24,447 square feet of ground floor retail space.  Like the South Office building, the properties surround Beaverton’s Central MAX (light rail) station, offering access to downtown Portland in approximately 20 minutes.

“This was an incredibly complex assignment, with lots of moving parts due to the long troubled nature of the development, but these successfully executed transactions now provide a solid platform for the City and its development partners to move forward and complete the vision for The Round at Beaverton Central,” said Morgan.
