Cushman & Wakefield announced today the firm has represented both buyer and seller in the sale of Ascend at Chandler Airport Center, a 130,642-square-foot Class A office building located in Chandler (Phoenix), Arizona. The property is 100% leased on a long-term basis and serves as the corporate technology headquarters for a leading technology services company.

Phoenix-based Silver Creek Development acquired the single-tenant investment asset from Irgens for approximately $34.2 million.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Chris Toci and Chad Littell handled the transaction on behalf of both parties. The firm’s Greg Mayer also provided leasing advisory.

“This was an incredible investment offering of a highly unique and desirable award-winning asset providing long-term stable income,” said Chris Toci, Executive Managing Director.

These building features allow for a superior product relative to the competition within the Greater Phoenix market,” remarked Charles Essig of Silver Creek Development.

Located at 1811 E Northrop Blvd, Ascend at Chandler Airport Center is a two-story building situated on nearly 11 acres in the Phoenix Metro area.
