AEW Capital Management has sold a 109,948-square-foot office property in Aliso Viejo, Calif., for $59 million in a 1031 exchange to BDC—a division of BPM Real Estate Group. The new owner received this summer a $460 million construction loan for Block 216, a 1.1 million-square-foot mixed-use development in downtown Portland.

Located at 1 Enterprise Aliso Viejo, the four-story building is adjacent to the 73 toll road and within a master-planned city located in south Orange County. Completed in 1999 on a 7.3-acre site, the recently renovated asset includes amenities such as a first-floor lobby, corporate boardroom, executive kitchen, cafeteria, as well as a gym with locker rooms and showers. At the time of sale, the property was fully leased to Microsemi Corp. and Ambry Genetics.    

Executive Managing Directors Paul Jones and Brunson Howard, Co-Head of U.S. Capital Markets Kevin Shannon, Managing Director Blake Bokosky and Senior Associate Brandon White of NKF represented the seller in the transaction. Additionally, Vice Chairman Nick Kucha worked on behalf of the buyer.  

According to Jones, the property is within one of the best suburban office submarkets in south Orange County. The area has maintained positive net absorption and consecutive quarters of positive rent growth for several years.
