Chicago, Ill. (January 3, 2018) – SVN | Chicago Commercial, one of the nation’s premier net lease brokerage firms, recently completed the sale of two commercial buildings in Illinois for a total of $24 million. SVN | Chicago Commercial advised the buyers in the purchase of 19-27 West Jefferson St. in Naperville, Ill. and 1230-1242 West Washington Blvd. in Chicago.

19-27 West Jefferson St. is a 15,412-square-foot retail and office property comprised of four buildings in downtown Naperville. The property sold for $10.5 million under the advisement of Tim Franz, Senior Advisor of SVN | Chicago Commercial, who facilitated the transaction between the buyer, Samuel L. Rubin Co., and the seller, Town Center Holdings, LLC.

“This deal presented a rare value-add opportunity to acquire a stabilized asset in a very strong market within Naperville, providing both the seller and the buyer with an ideal scenario,” said Franz. “The downtown property also offers the possibility of additional mixed-use development for even greater potential of value creation on the site.”

The Jefferson Street property is well-situated on one of the most prominent streets in downtown Naperville, featuring a high-quality tenancy and easy accessibility. Retail tenants in the four-building asset include Jimmy John’s, LuluLemon, Coldstone Creamery, Francesca’s Collection and Adagio Teas.

SVN | Chicago Commercial’s second high-value transaction includes 1230-1242 West Washington Blvd. a 60,000-square-foot mixed-use property comprised of three office and self-storage buildings in Chicago. The property sold for $13.5 million to CLK Properties, in partnership with RCG Longview. Scott Maesel, Chad Schroedl and Drew Dillion of SVN | Chicago Commercial represented the buyers.

“Fulton Market property values have soared in the past several years as multi-national companies like Google, Glassdoor and McDonald’s have opened offices in the area,” said Drew Dillon, Senior Advisor at SVN | Chicago Commercial. “Located in the heart of Chicago’s West Loop, one of the hottest neighborhoods in the country, this property sold for nearly triple its original price, making this a great value-add for the seller.”

The Washington Boulevard property is conveniently located two blocks from the new 600,000-square-foot world headquarters for McDonald’s, which is currently under construction.
