ASB Sells Two Denver Office Buildings for $85.5 Million

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Denver, CO —ASB Real Estate Investments (ASB) announced today the sale of two office buildings, located in the LoDo submarket, for $85.5 million to Unico Properties. ASB completed the disposition on behalf of its Allegiance Real Estate Fund, a $7.4 billion core investment vehicle.

The sale properties‒1755 Blake St., a LEED-certified, five-story brick building; and the historic, five-story Hardware Block at 1515-1527 Wazee St., constructed in 1895‒total 170,472-square feet of space. The buildings are a short distance from Denver’s transport hub, Union Station, at the center of the city’s popular restaurant and entertainment district. ASB acquired the assets in 2013 for $69.8 million.

David Quigley, ASB’s Chief Investment Officer, said: “The sale is part of ASB’s portfolio strategy to strategically and selectively reduce office exposure and increase investments in industrial and apartment assets.”

ASB continues to own Colorado Center, the one-million-square-foot office complex located between downtown and the Denver Tech Center at 2000 South Colorado Boulevard, in a joint venture with Lincoln Property Company.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of ASB. The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team was led by Senior Managing Director Mark Katz and Senior Director Peter Merrion. Unico Properties is a Seattle-based private real estate investor and operator.
