Hubris Capital purchases Baltimore office properties for $29.228M

JLL transacts the two office towers in Baltimore’s CBD in two days

January 07, 2020

BALTIMORE, January 7, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of 100 South Charles-Tower II and 201 North Charles, two office properties totaling $29.228 million in Downtown Baltimore, Maryland.

JLL represented both sellers in separate transactions.  An investor led by Dallas-based Hubris Capital purchased both assets, closing the two transactions within a day of each other.

100 South Charles-Tower II, also known as Tower 2 at Pratt and Charles, comprises 160,754 square feet within an eight-story office tower (floors 4-11) built on top of a three-story podium containing the retail and common lobby of the entire 100 South Charles development. Tower 2 is 74.6% leased to a diverse tenant roster, including credit tenants Liberty Mutual Insurance Co., Jacobs Engineering Group, Behavioral Health Systems and four GSA Departments. Situated in the core of Baltimore’s Pratt Street Corridor, the property recently underwent nearly $2 million of capital upgrades independent of Tower I’s multi-million transformation to the complex’s common areas. It also is within steps of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and a wealth of retail and entertainment amenities.

201 North Charles is situated a few blocks north of 100 South Charles at the corner of East Lexington Street and North Charles Street within two blocks of the Metro and the courthouse and within a few blocks of more than 2,200 hotel rooms and over two million square feet of recent office to multi-housing conversions. The 28-story, 251,943-square-foot property is Baltimore’s only LEED Gold EB Certified CBD office tower and, due to the building quality and efficient floorplate, has measurably outperformed the remainder of its peer set over the past two decades. As one of the tallest office properties in downtown Baltimore, the 77.2%-leased tower features unobstructed views of the Baltimore skyline and the Inner Harbor and offers amenities, including 52 underground parking spaces, a café, fitness center with showers and a locker room and 24-hour building security. 

JLL’s Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Managing Director Jay Wellschlager and Vice President Andrew Finkelstein.
