Jones Lang LaSalle Closes Sale of 150 Newport Ave. in Quincy

Foxrock Granite purchases the 121,329 sf office building


BOSTON, June 6, 2013 — Jones Lang LaSalle announces that the firm has closed the sale of 150 Newport Avenue in Quincy, MA, on behalf of buyer Foxrock Granite LLC, a division of Granite Telecommunications.  Normandy Newport Holdings, LLC sold the 121,329-square-foot first class office building for $13,975,000.  The four-story building is next to Granite’s 100 Newport Ave. building.

Executive Vice President Tom Kent and Vice President Sean Lynch led the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction. Normandy was represented by Normandy Real Estate Partners Principal Justin Krebs.

“The building's convenient location next to Granite's existing headquarters made it a natural to buy,” said Kent.  “This will help them maintain their rapid growth across business lines, continue their strong presence in the community, and draw quality talent by offering great access to public transportation and I-93.”
“Normandy was attracted to the credibility and certainty of sale to a user-buyer who recognized the strategic alignment of 150 Newport with their future growth needs. Overall the deal was a win-win for both parties, and we’re confident that Granite will further benefit from this well-positioned, high-quality asset,” added Krebs.
