JLL completes sale of AstraZeneca North Campus

​JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the company completed the sale of the AstraZeneca North Campus in Wilmington, Delaware. An affiliate of Delle Donne Associates purchased the four office buildings, which total 865,000 square feet, from AstraZeneca. AstraZeneca entered into a sale-leaseback of the two main buildings, Brandywine and Alapocas. ​

Managing Director Jim Galbally and Executive Vice President Blaise Fletcher along with Senior Vice Presidents John Plower, Erin Miller, Chad Orcutt and Brett Grifo led the JLL team on the deal.

"The sale of the North Campus presented a unique opportunity to acquire a large redevelopment opportunity at one of the best locations in the state of Delaware," said Galbally. "The sale and partial-leaseback provides AstraZeneca with the right space to meet future and present business needs, while also offering the opportunity to reposition the other two buildings or create a mixed-use development on vacant land." 

The 79-acre corporate headquarters site is comprised of four office and amenity buildings, and includes a 621-space parking garage. The campus offers meeting spaces, dining areas, a fitness center and outdoor seating.
