WASHINGTON, D.C. –– Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced it has arranged a joint venture for the acquisition and development of 699 14th Street NW, an 11-story, planned trophy office building in Washington, D.C.’s East End.

HFF worked on behalf of the developer, Lincoln Property Company (Lincoln), to arrange a joint venture with Pearlmark Real Estate (Pearlmark).

699 14th Street NW is located at the corner of 14th and G Streets in Washington, D.C.’s East End, one and a half blocks from the White House.  The site was previously home to the National Bank of Washington.  The joint venture has plans to renovate the bank and develop an adjoining trophy office building.

Upon completion, the project will deliver approximately 135,000 rentable square feet of office and 25,000 rentable square feet of retail space. 

Designed by Shalom Baranes Associates, the office building will feature a state-of-the-art glass tower buttressing the historic bank.  The 11-story building will offer four sides of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, nine-foot ceiling heights and multiple common and private outdoor terraces.

The HFF team representing the developer was led by Stephen Conley, Susan Carras and Andrew Weir.
 “It has been our privilege to work with Lincoln and Pearlmark in creating the start of one of the most exciting projects in D.C. history,” Carras said.

HFF closes $52.4 million sale of grocery-anchored shopping center in Philadelphia, PA

Bakers Centre, 2800 Fox Street, Philadelphia, PA

  PHILADELPHIA, PA –– Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced it has closed the $52.4 million sale of Bakers Centre, a 236,719-square-foot, grocery-anchored shopping center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Metro Development Company, Carlino Commercial Development and US Realty Associates, Inc. 

The multi-building property was developed between 2011 and 2015 and is anchored by ShopRite, Ross Dress for Less and Planet Fitness.

 Situated on 27.4 acres at 2800 Fox Street, Bakers Centre has become the go-to retail destination for the local community of East Falls/Hunting Park. The center is surrounded by a consumer base of more than 400,000 residents within a three-mile radius. 

The HFF team representing the seller was led by managing director Chris Munley, associate director Michael DiCosimo and senior managing director Jose Cruz.  Gregory Bianchi, vice president with US Realty Associates, Inc. assisted with the acquisition as well.

“The city of Philadelphia has a limited supply of grocery-anchored shopping centers of this size and quality, which made Bakers Centre a rare opportunity for investors,” Munley said. “Compounding the scarcity of the opportunity with a premium anchor in ShopRite, Philadelphia’s No. 1 grocer by market share, and a location poised for future growth, the asset received wide institutional interest.”
