Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the $22 million sale of Nottingham Hall, a 105,601-square-foot Class A office property in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.
The HFF team marketed the property on behalf of the seller, CapRidge Partners, LLC, and procured the buyer, Senior Housing Properties Trust. The property is now managed by The RMR Group, or RMR. Thus far in 2017, RMR-managed buildings have received 23 awards for excellence from organizations including the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Nottingham Hall is located at 4505 Emperor Boulevard within Imperial Center, one of Raleigh-Durham’s premier business parks. The property’s location in the Research Triangle Park/Interstate 40 (RTP/I-40) submarket is convenient to Raleigh’s primary residential nodes in Cary, West Raleigh and North Raleigh as well as being located close to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport and Research Triangle Park. Completed in 2001, the four-story Nottingham Hall is fully leased to 13 tenants, including Social and Scientific Systems, its largest tenant.
The HFF investment sales team representing the seller included senior managing director Ryan Clutter, senior director Scot Humphrey and director Chris Lingerfelt.
“Raleigh-Durham’s growing economy along with Nottingham Hall’s STEM-oriented tenant roster resulted in this being a highly sought-after opportunity,” commented Humphrey. “We expect these fundamental attributes will continue to attract more institutional capital to the region in the months ahead as employment growth across the region continues to be among the strongest in the country.”
