Jones Lang LaSalle Closes Sale of Five Burlington Woods

Capstone Properties Purchases Prime Route 128 Office Building from ELV Associates

BOSTON, Jan. 10, 2014  — Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced that the firm has closed the sale of Five Burlington Woods, a 95% leased, 103,973-square-foot Class A office building on Route 128 in Burlington, MA on behalf of ELV Associates, Inc. Capstone Properties purchased the three-story building for $21,125,000 million.

Managing Directors Frank Petz and Jessica Hughes, and Vice President Robert Borden led the JLL investment sales team on the transaction, along with Associate Matthew Sherry. Managing Director Tamie Thompson and Vice President Tyler Spring provided leasing expertise.

“This offering gave investors the unique opportunity to purchase a core asset in the heart of the 128 corridor, surrounded by best-in-class amenities and a concentration of leading technology companies,” said Petz/Hughes (attribute quote to Frank or Jessica?). “Investors responded in earnest to Five Burlington Woods’ prime location, high occupancy, institutional quality, and below market rents. Burlington is redefining the suburban tenant experience, emerging as one of the nation’s strongest suburban markets, poised for rent growth. The building has tremendous long-term upside.”

Located at the east end of Burlington Mall Road at the Route 128/Route 3A interchange, Five Burlington Woods has entrances on Burlington Mall Road and South Bedford Street. Adjacent to the property is the Burlington Marriott, and Wayside Common is within short walking distance.
