PETALUMA, Calif. (June 19, 2019) – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the firm has advised Silicon Valley-based Bay West Development in the sale of 40 acres of undeveloped land in Petaluma, California for $20.1 million. Located at 500 Hopper Street, Bay West had originally purchased the vacant industrial-zoned property in 2016. The buyer was Indianapolis-based Scannell Properties, whose official plans for their new development project have yet to be announced.

Trevor Buck, Steven Leonard and Brian Foster with Cushman & Wakefield’s North Bay office represented the seller in the transaction.   

“We marketed this property as an industrial build-to-suit opportunity to a wide audience of buyers and we received strong interest from a number of different investors and developers, even outside the scope of industrial,” said Trevor Buck, Executive Director. “Scannell proved to be an ideal buyer for this sought-after property given their experience and knowledge of the local area, coupled with their close work with the city, ultimately putting themselves in the pole position to close on the property.”

Situated in Southern Sonoma County, 500 Hopper sits less than one block away from Highway 101, providing convenient accessibility to all of Sonoma and Marin counties. The property is also desirably positioned along Petaluma’s Riverfront with a walking path to downtown Petaluma shops and amenities. A SMART Train station is also just one block away.
