RICHMOND, Calif., Dec. 19,2016 – Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), a leading commercial real estate investment services firm with offices throughout the United States and Canada, announced the sale of a 13-acre land parcel located directly in front of the Joinn Innovation Park-Biotechnology Acceleration Campus at 2600 Hilltop Drive in Richmond, California.
Jeffrey Ida of Marcus & Millichap’s San Francisco office represented the seller and procured the buyer on the $13.7 million sale.
“The transaction, which is part of a 1031 exchange, took months to structure,” says Ida. “Our investment strategy focused on providing the seller with the ability to capitalize on the sale of excess land and trade into an income-producing property while maintaining the integrity of the biotech campus. We worked with the buyer and seller to overcome historical deed restrictions, environmental concerns and come to a fair agreement on the shared and private easements as it was imperative to not be detrimental to the biotech campus. The outcome is truly a win-win situation for all parties.”
