Two downtown towers sold

Lynn LaChapelle, Bob Prendergast and Patrick Inglis, of JLL, represented the seller in the Deal of the Week. The buyer was self-represented.

The deal was the sale of two downtown San Diego office towers at 701 B Street and 707 Broadway for $155 million.

The buyer was a unit of New York City-based Emmes Group of Cos.

The seller of both properties were partnerships controlled by the Trizec unit of The Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX).

The 560,329-square-foot 701 B Street building sold for $120 million. The 187,304-square-foot 707 Broadway building was sold for $35 million.

"These buildings were acquired when Blackstone acquired Sam Zell's Equity Office Properties [in late 2006]," said LaChapelle, managing director of capital markets at JLL (NYSE: JLL).

In November 2012, a partnership controlled by Emmes paid $135 million for the 553,715-square-foot 1 Columbia Place building at 401 W. A St.

In August 2013, another Emmes partnership paid $35 million for 2 Columbia Place at 1230 Columbia St.
