NGKF Capital Markets has successfully completed the sale of 400 Minuteman Road in Andover, Massachusetts to Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT II, Inc. for $37 million. The NGKF Capital Markets Boston team led by U.S. Head of Capital Markets Robert Griffin, Vice Chairman Edward Maher, Executive Managing Director Matthew Pullen and Associate Director Samantha Hallowell, in conjunction with Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Executive Managing Director Torin Taylor, oversaw the transaction of the Class A office building on behalf of Spear Street Capital.

Encompassing a total of 153,000 square feet across two stories, 400 Minuteman Road is presently 100% leased to high-quality tenants Time Warner Cable and The Weather Company. The asset is one of seven buildings that comprise Minuteman Park, a one million square foot Class A suburban office campus.

"400 Minuteman Road benefits from a ‘sticky' tenant roster with Time Warner Cable operating a state-of-the-art data center at the property," said Hallowell. "Additionally, it features exceptional positioning within a market-leading ‘super park' with one of the most desirable corporate addresses in suburban Boston."

By virtue of its location in Minuteman Park, 400 Minuteman Road benefits from campus amenities including two full-service cafeterias, a coffee bar, two fitness centers and a game room/lounge, all of which are undergoing renovation. Additionally, the building is located immediately adjacent to Interstate 93 with swift access to Interstate 495, enabling seamless travel throughout the region.
