Calkain Urban Advisors Completes $14.9M Sale of MacArthur Retail & Professional Center

Herndon, VA – Calkain‘s Urban Investment Advisors team of Rick Fernandez and Andrew Fallon, recently completed the sale of the MacArthur Retail & Professional Center at 5185 MacArthur Boulevard, NW located in the Palisades neighborhood just north of Georgetown in Washington, DC.  The 90% leased, 43,543 square foot, 3-story property is anchored by a dynamic suite of ground floor retail including Starbucks and the UPS Store.  Calkain represented the seller in the transaction and the property sold for $14,925,000.00 to a private group of investors from New York.

“The property is centrally located within the Palisades community and the buyers felt confident in their ability to improve the property, fill the vacancies and grow the income stream,” commented Fernandez.  “Although there were challenges posed by the securitized debt assumption and office vacancies, we procured multiple offers and ultimately selected the best buyer for our client. It was a win-win,” continued Fallon.

The transaction closed within the last thirty days and is recorded in the public record.
