Suburban office complex sells for $63.5 Million

Natalie Kostelni Reporter, Philadelphia Business Journal
Liberty Property Trust has sold one of its suburban office complexes for $63.5 million.
The property consists of three buildings at 1170, 1180 and 1190 Devon Park Drive that total 250,185 square feet in King of Prussia, Pa.

The structures are highly visible off Route 202 where drivers can see the USLI sign for the its main tenant, U.S. Liabilities Inc., which maintains its headquarters there, and DrugDev, which moved its North American headquarters from Audubon, Pa., into 31,000 square feet at 1170 Devon Park. The complex is fully leased on a long-term basis to the tenants.
A partnership consisting of a group of undisclosed, local high-networth individuals bought the complex.
“We had nine offers on the property and some were international buyers, which is nice to see in Philadelphia,”

Sales of suburban office buildings have started to pick up is a sign that the one of the last and hardest hit property types during the recession is finally seeing a recovery.
“I know there is a lot more activity this year compared with last year."
Liberty has been selling real estate assets that it has determined don’t fit into its core portfolio.
