The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller consisted of senior managing director Ryan Clutter, senior director Scot Humphrey and director Chris Lingerfelt.
“The sale of these high-quality, multi-story office buildings in The Park – Huntersville, signifies yet again the strength and appeal of the Charlotte office market from investors,” commented Clutter. “The North Charlotte marketplace, in particular, has seen steady leasing demand and strong growth and investors are now taking note.”
“With this transaction we have now completed the sales of all of the existing office and industrial buildings owned by Bank of America, as Trustee in The Park – Huntersville, with the first of the four transactions closing less than 10 months ago,” added Clutter. “All four offerings experienced significant interest, which is a testament to the quality of the Park and the appeal of the Charlotte market.
