NKF Capital Markets Completes the $29.87 Million Sale of Empire Towers V in Ontario, CA

Los Angeles, CA (07/11/2018)

NKF Capital Markets has completed the $29.87 million sale of Empire Towers V, a five-story 124,529-square-foot Class A office building in Ontario, CA, a city within the Inland Empire region of Southern California.

NKF Capital Markets Co-Head of US Capital Markets Kevin Shannon, Executive Managing Director Ken White and Senior Managing Director Michael Moore represented the seller, TA Associates. The buyer, MGR Realty, was self-represented.

Built in 2007 and situated on 4.4 acres at 3990 Concours Street, Empire Towers V is within walking distance of numerous amenities including restaurants and hotels and provides access to the Ontario Mills Mall, Citizens Business Bank Arena and the Ontario Convention Center. The Ontario Airport is also less than a mile from the site. The property is currently 100 percent occupied by 11 tenants including United Health Care Services, Chapman University and CEMEX.

"This is the second sale NKF Capital Markets has brokered in the Empire Tower master-planned park," said Shannon. "In February 2017, MGR acquired the adjacent Empire Towers I to IV for $78.5 million which totals four buildings and nearly 401,000 square feet. This latest acquisition is a strategic purchase that will complete MGR's control of the entire Empire Towers development."

Moore added, "The Empire Towers campus is an institutional quality asset that is within the Inland Empire West market - one that has seen a major influx of capital investment and tenant expansion over the past several years. The asset will benefit from its scale, nearby amenities, and freeway adjacent location as the region sees continued growth."

The central Ontario location offers high corporate identity with immediate access off the I-10 freeway at both Haven Avenue on/off ramps and Milliken Avenue on/off ramps. Secondary access is provided by the Archibald on/off ramps off 1-10 and Fourth Street on/off ramps from the I-15 Freeway.
