RALEIGH, Jan. 11, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it closed the $87.5 million sale of Palisades I, II and III, a three-property office portfolio totaling 327,540 square feet in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.

JLL represented the seller, Keystone Corporation, and procured the buyer.

Palisades I, II and III comprises two Class A office properties that were built in 2001 and 2005 paired with a brand-new, best-in-class office building delivered in 2021. Palisades I and II are 79.1% leased to a mix of local, regional and international firms across a variety of industries, while Palisades III is available for lease-up. The properties offer a market-leading amenity package featuring a sky terrace patio, structured parking, a café, tenant lounge, conference center and fitness center.

Positioned at 5400 and 5410 Trinity Rd, and 1501 Nowell Rd, Palisades I, II and III are in the heart of the Urban West Raleigh submarket. The properties are just north of Interstate 40 providing regional connectivity to Interstates 440 and 64 and are within an easy commute to the area’s main executive hubs of Cary, Central Raleigh and North Raleigh. Additionally, Palisades is just south of PNC Arena and not far from NC State University, and Downtown Raleigh.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Ryan Clutter, Senior Director Chris Lingerfelt and Directors Daniel Flynn and John Mikels.

“We continue to see an insatiable appetite for first- and second-generation space in the Raleigh-Durham market,” Clutter noted. “The Palisades offering drew a tremendous amount of interest from both domestic and international buyers.”
