Podolsky Circle Represents CP Highlands in the Sale of 1755 Park Street in Naperville
Podolsky Circle is pleased to announce the sale of 1755 Park Street 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, CP Highlands Fund, LP. CP Highlands was represented by its principals, Randy D. Podolsky and Adam Tarantur, CCIM. The property sold for $3,550,000 to a private investor.
1755 Park Street is a 37,668-square-foot, three-story, multi-tenant office building. CP Highlands Fund purchased the property in 2013 and began a capital improvement plan to update the property’s automation systems, common areas, building signage as well as tenant spaces and the addition of electric vehicle charging stations. Podolsky Circle Construction, led by Michael Lebar, implemented the improvements. Podolsky Circle leasing executed the lease-up plan bringing the property to 94.4% occupancy before the sale.
“The condition, location and low real estate taxes of this particular asset made it a huge attraction,” said Adler. “On top of that, ownership’s capital improvements of the property, combined with our market knowledge and resources, culminated in high renewal rates and long-term tenancy, which in the end made for a very attractive investment opportunity.”
Located in the heart of Naperville, just south of I-88 and within minutes of I-355, the 1755 Park Street is situated less than a mile from both the DePaul University Campus-Naperville and the Nike Sports Complex and benefits from an abundance of nearby retail and restaurants. The property features a patio or balcony overlooking a beautiful pond on each floor as well as after-hours key card access.
