Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) on behalf of a joint venture led by SteelWave, has completed the sale of Canyon Park Business Center, a 17-building value-add property totaling 632,591 square feet in Bothell, a city situated on Seattle's Eastside. The property is 99 percent occupied and consists of 13 Class A flex/office buildings totaling 450,961 square feet, and a collection of four net leased, Class A, life science lab and data center buildings totaling 181,630 square feet.

NKF's Co-Head of U.S. Capital Markets Kevin Shannon, Vice Chairman Nick Kucha, Executive Managing Director Ken White, Senior Managing Director Michael Moll, and Directors James Childress and Bill DeLacy represented the sellers, a joint venture led by SteelWave. The buyer, a joint venture of PCCP, LLC and SteelWave was self-represented.

Located at 1631, 1629, 1725,1930, 1916 220th Street SE; 22121, 22125 17th Avenue SE; 22118, 22122, 22030, 22026, 22025, 22021 20th Avenue SE; 22522, 22333, 22515, 22422 29th Drive SE, Canyon Park Business Center is situated at the intersection of Interstate 405 and the Bothell-Everett Highway.

"The sale of Canyon Park emphasizes the strength of Seattle's Eastside market," said Kucha. "This offering was well received as we are seeing newfound capital interest in the Eastside suburbs for well-located assets with compelling tenant profiles or mark-to-market opportunities."

"Flex building product has seen tight vacancies and increasing rents and there is little to no new flex being developed in the area," said Moll. "This property represents one of the top flex locations in the Puget Sound region and is anchored by a strong mix of life sciences, medical device manufacturing, aerospace, and telecomm companies."
