Podolsky Circle CORFAC International announced the sale and financing of 400 E. Diehl Road (Naperville Financial Center) in Naperville, Illinois. The Podolsky Circle middle market investment advisory team—comprised of managing principal Alissa Adler, principal John Homsher, CCIM and senior vice president Paul Tesdal—represented the seller, SARA Investment Real Estate, in the transaction.
The property was sold to Chicago-based Gateway Investment Partners for $6,400,000. The Podolsky Circle team also helped source financing of approximately 70 percent loan-to-value on behalf of the buyer.
Naperville Financial Center is a five-story, 57,969-square-foot, multi-tenant office property featuring covered parking, on-site storage, conference facilities and tenant balconies. Conveniently situated in the East/West Corridor office market, the property benefits from its proximity just south of the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) at the southeast corner of East Diehl Road and North Washington Street. Naperville Financial Center is currently 97.2 percent occupied by 12 tenants ranging in size from 573 to 17,836 square feet. Current tenants include Rhea+Kaiser, M/I Homes and Cargill, to name a few.
“The property offered the buyer an opportunity to acquire an asset that has been historically at least 95 percent leased due to the building’s dynamics, easy access to highways, transportation and an affluent talent pool,” said Tesdal.
