Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) has completed the $59.8 million sale of 4400 MacArthur, a nine-story, Class A office building totaling 156,310 square feet in Newport Beach, CA. The property, which is located within the master-planned Koll Center Newport, is 92 percent leased by multiple tenants including Bank of the West and Fidelity National Title Company.
NKF’s Capital Markets President, West Coast Kevin Shannon, Senior Managing Director Paul Jones and Director Blake Bokosky represented the seller, an East Coast-based pension fund advisor. The buyer, a joint venture between Greenlaw Partners and Hilrod, was self-represented.
“4400 MacArthur was a very rare opportunity to purchase a Class A office tower in the center of the John Wayne Airport submarket in Newport Beach,” said Jones. “The location, in addition to functional floor plates, prominent visibility along MacArthur Boulevard and the asset being within walking distance to the Pacific Club, make the property a great long-term hold for the new ownership.”
Built in 1979, 4400 MacArthur was extensively renovated from 2014 to 2016. It features a reflective glass exterior, flexible floor plates, and an exclusive-use two-level parking structure. The property is situated on just under two acres of land on MacArthur Boulevard, one of the busiest corridors in Orange County and offers easy access to the John Wayne Airport, 405 and 55 freeways, as well as State Route 73.
