HFF announces $16.8M sale of 272,282 SF industrial facility in Durham, North Carolina


CHARLOTTE, NC – February 28, 2018 – HFF announces the $16.8 million sale of a 272,282-square-foot, fully occupied industrial facility located at 3508 Tricenter Boulevard in Durham, North Carolina.

The HFF team represented the seller, a partnership between Trinity Capital Advisors and SilverCap Partners.  Dalfen America Corp. purchased the asset. 

3508 Tricenter Boulevard is situated on 14.68 acres within Research Tri-Center, a 130-acre master-planned industrial park with more than 2.4 million square feet of distribution, manufacturing and R&D facilities.  The building is in a mission-critical location near a network of major transportation thoroughfares, including the Raleigh-Durham International Airport, Interstates 40 and 85 and Research Triangle Park, and is in one of the tightest industrial submarkets in the Carolinas, the RTP/I-40 Industrial submarket.  Originally constructed as a build-to-suit for IBM in 1989, 3508 Tricenter Boulevard was renovated in 2017 and is configured for rear-loading with 31 dock-high loading doors, a 150-foot deep truck court, 22-foot clear heights and 24 trailer spaces.  The property is triple net leased to two tenants.

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller consisted of senior managing director Chris Norvell and director Patrick Nally.

“The Raleigh-Durham market continues to have some of the nation’s strongest fundamentals,” said Sean Dalfen, president and CIO at Dalfen America Corp.  “We have had tremendous success in the Carolinas and are always looking for the next opportunity to expand our footprint in this market.”

“Tricenter presented an ideal value-add opportunity for Trinity Capital,” added Jeff Sheehan from Trinity Capital Advisors.  “Our improvements were strategic and deliberate, allowing the building to better meet market demands for functionality.  We attracted the right user and successfully executed the investment’s repositioning.”

Holliday GP Corp. (“HFF”) is a North Carolina licensed real estate broker.
