Xceligent, Inc., a commercial real estate information services provider, has learned that the Metro Denver sale of Harlequin Plaza and 18 additional acres closed on October 18, 2012 for $26,550,000, according to Arapahoe County Records. The buyer, Unico Real Estate Investments, based in Seattle, executed a $25,000,000 note, with a due date in 2016. Mike Winn and Tim Richie of Cushman & Wakefield represented the seller.
Harlequin Plaza is located at 7600 East Orchard Avenue. The Greenwood Village property consists of two buildings totaling 327,907 square feet; Harlequin Plaza North contains 187,243 square feet while Harlequin Plaza South has 140,664 square feet, and was developed by the John Madden Company in 1981.
“The sales price of $80.97 per square foot is way below replacement cost,” said John V. Winslow, CRE and Xceligent Senior Sales Comp Manager.
According to Xceligent CDX records, Harlequin Plaza was 40% occupied at the time of sale. The site is adorned with first class office landscaping and amenities. According to a recent Unico written statement, this acquisition brings Unico’s Denver portfolio to over 1.2 million square feet of owned and managed properties.
