Portland, OR (02/05/2020)

10:00 AM

Newmark Knight Frank's (NKF) Pacific Northwest Capital Markets team advised on the sale of Amberglen Business Center, a nine-building, office and flex business campus located in Portland's Sunset Corridor. The park consists of 578,808 rentable square feet across three class A mid-rise office and six single-story flex buildings.

NKF represented the seller, Principal Real Estate Investors in the investment sale to PCCP, LLC (PCCP), who will partner with Talon Private Capital as their joint venture operating partner. The buyer was self-represented. Advising on the sale were NKF Vice Chairman Nick Kucha, Managing Director James Childress, Director Jeff Hodson and Senior Financial Analyst James Ikeguchi.

According to Nick Kucha: "Amberglen Business Center is a premier business campus that operates in one of the most highly-amenitized suburban locations. We are delighted to see new ownership continue to invest in the campus."

"Buyers are very thoughtful when selecting suburban office investments. Amberglen Business Center offers the scale, quality, and exceptional location that generated significant interest from a number of qualified parties," said Kucha.

Home to the state's largest economic drivers, the Sunset Corridor is one of the most prominent suburban office submarkets in the Portland metro. Fueled by proximity to the Intel and Nike campuses, nearly 50% of the suburban office inventory in the region is in the Sunset Corridor. This high demand for commercial product is demonstrated by superior market fundamentals, impressive roster of credit tenants, and depth of institutional ownership in the area.
