JLL completes sale, secures financing for Philadelphia’s 1760 Market Street


PHILADELPHIA, March 22, 2018 – JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the company completed the sale of 1760 Market Street in Philadelphia. JLL represented the seller, a joint-venture between Alterra Property Group and Stockton Real Estate Advisors. Chelsea/Village Associates purchased the 126,689-square-foot office tower and JLL also secured acquisition financing on behalf of the buyer. Key Bank provided the loan with a five-year term. 

Managing Director James Galbally and Senior Vice President Brett Grifo led the JLL team on the sale. Executive Vice President Chad Orcutt led the firm on the financing.

"This was a unique opportunity for an investor to acquire a boutique office building with a trophy address and the potential for immediate value creation," said Galbally. "The size of the asset coupled with the location resulted in an extremely competitive bid process, resulting in offers from a diverse group of investors including local, regional and international buyers"

Added Orcutt, "1760 Market Street caters to the large quantity of small users looking for space in the Philadelphia CBD. Debt capital continues to be available for sponsors investing in high-quality assets like this one."  

Situated directly between Rittenhouse Square and the new Comcast Innovations and Technology Center, 1760 Market Street occupies a prime location with access to Center City's walkable entertainment amenities and public transportation. The building has undergone extensive upgrades including a revamped lobby and entry way, refurbished elevator cabs and new building systems such as water pumps, a fire/life safety system and a gas-fired emergency generator.
