JLL brokers $28.75M sale of Philadelphia creative office building

JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the company completed the $28.75 million sale of 2300 Chestnut Street, a 100,998-square-foot Class A creative office building in Philadelphia. JLL represented the seller, Paul V. Profeta & Associates, and brokered the sale to Stoltz Real Estate Partners.

Managing Director James Galbally led the team along with Senior Vice Presidents Brett Grifo, Chad Orcutt, John Plower and Erin Miller.

"We saw a ton of investor interest in this asset for a variety of reasons," said Galbally. "The building itself is very unique architecturally, has great tenants in Vanguard and Saxby's and is in a superior location between Center City and University City. In addition, the majority of the tenants are currently paying rents substantially below market."

He continued, "Class A creative office space is rare in Philadelphia's Center City, and 2300 Chestnut epitomizes what investors are looking for as tenants continue to pay a premium for creative space throughout the CBD. Paul Profeta and his team did an exceptional job repositioning this asset to capture that market share."

Located in Philadelphia's bustling Center City, 2300 Chestnut provides tenants access to Amtrak's 30th Street station, as well as all regional SEPTA lines and Interstates 676 and 76. It also includes rare infrastructure features such as hardwired undersea connections between North America and all other continents, and dual power grid connectivity. The building itself features loft-style windows, exposed brick walls and wood-beam ceilings that are coveted in creative spaces.

"The JLL team did a sensational job," said Paul V. Profeta, the founder of Paul V. Profeta & Associates. "I would recommend them to anyone wanting to sell an investment property in Philadelphia."
