NGKF Capital Markets today announced the sale of 5 Omni Way in Chelmsford, Massachusetts to a private New York-based investment firm for $32.5 million. The NGKF Capital Markets team in Boston, led by U.S. Head of Capital Markets Robert Griffin, Vice Chairman Edward Maher and Executive Managing Director Matthew Pullen, oversaw the transaction of the 131,430-square-foot asset on behalf of Griffith Properties/Echo Bridge Partners.

Griffith Properties/Echo Bridge Partners recently completed a $15+ million redevelopment and renovate-to-suit project that transformed 5 Omni Way into a first-class office facility. The property will serve as a key regional call center and executive hub for Comcast with 24/7/365 operations and full call center backup redundancy.

"5 Omni Way is strategically situated immediately adjacent to Route 129 in the thriving Route 3 corridor, Burlington's fast-growing relief valve," said Pullen. "Combined with its first-class tenancy, this premier location solidifies 5 Omni Way's status as a highly desirable asset."

A magnet for companies across a variety of industries, 5 Omni Way's surrounding neighborhood boasts a long history of technology and innovation. The area is notable for its swift connections to regional highway systems, affluent residential communities and highly-educated employment pools.
