JLL completes $242M sale of large government-leased property

Sale of 6100 Wabash Ave. is the largest this year in greater Baltimore

BALTIMORE, Aug. 30, 2018 — JLL's Capital Markets experts have completed the $242 million sale of 6100 Wabash Avenue, a new government-leased, LEED Silver office building in the Baltimore suburb of Reisterstown. CoreCivic, a Nashville-based REIT specializing in investing and operating government facilities was the purchaser. JLL represented the seller.

Executive Managing Director John Duffy, and Executive Vice Presidents Marc Rampulla and Brian Saal, who specialize in capital markets transactions for government occupied real estate, led the JLL team handling the sale.

"This was a very attractive and rare opportunity for investors to acquire a high-quality, transit-oriented asset leased to the federal government on a long-term basis and we were able to generate significant interest," said Rampulla.

"6100 Wabash is one of the highest quality government occupied buildings in the country. Our team was proud to lead the sale effort," added Saal.  

Completed in 2014, the building is fully-leased to the Social Security Administration (SSA) through a 20-year lease with the General Services Administration. The 540,566-square-foot building is just five miles from the SSA's 1.4 million-square-foot headquarters in Woodlawn. The building is also adjacent to the Reisterstown Metro station, close to I-695 and a 24-minute drive from Baltimore Washington International Airport. The building is surrounded by more than 1.7 million square feet of retail amenities within a one-mile radius.
