PHOENIX, ARIZ. — NKF Capital Markets has completed the $51 million sale of The Quad, a 14-building, 166,606-square-foot creative office campus in Scottsdale, AZ. Situated on 13.41 acres, the multi-tenant property is 98 percent leased.
CJ Osbrink, Kevin Shannon, Ken White, Paul Jones, Brunson Howard and Rick Stumm of NKF Capital Markets represented the seller, a joint venture of Everwest, George Oliver Companies and WHI Real Estate Partners. The buyer, Vancouver-based City Office REIT, was self-represented.
Built in 1982 and located at 6200-6390 East Thomas Road, The Quad underwent a $23 million renovation, transforming the asset into a creative office environment which was completed in 2017. The property features a connected design, efficient floor plates, fitness center with showers, on-site restaurant and coffee bar, community lounge/conference center, pet friendly environment, walking/biking paths, and accessible WiFi throughout the campus.
“With the recent completion of a major capital improvement campaign, The Quad offered the buyer one of the only true creative campus-style office projects within the greater Phoenix area,” said Osbrink.
Osbrink added, “This asset provides a setting for collaboration and connectivity as well as design elements and architecture that has attracted area users. Leasing momentum has been a testimony to tenant demand as the project is now at 98 occupied just 12 months post-renovation.”
The Quad is proximate to the Loop 101 Freeway, Loop 202 Freeway and State Route 143, providing convenient regional access to the region as well as a labor force of approximately 2.5 million. Additionally, the property is located just ten minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Phoenix’s premier university, Arizona State University (ASU), which has one of the largest enrollments of any university in the country.
