BALTIMORE – Cassidy Turley, a leading commercial real estate services provider in the U.S., announced today that it has arranged the sale of 201 North Charles Street in Baltimore. The 28-story, 264,126 square foot building is the only LEED Gold EB Certified office tower in Baltimore’s Central Business District. Jonathan M. Carpenter and James S. Wellschlager of Cassidy Turley’s Capital Markets Group represented the seller, Lexington Charles Limited Partnership. Baltimore-based Blue Ocean Realty purchased the property for $19,667,000.
“This sale signals an increase in investor confidence in the Downtown Baltimore office market as fundamentals continue to gradually improve in the Baltimore CBD,” commented Jonathan M. Carpenter, Managing Director and Principal at Cassidy Turley. “Competition for investment opportunities in gateway markets such as New York and Washington D.C. remains frothy, and Baltimore is increasingly viewed as a viable investment alternative.”
