Choi Cos. has sold a 90,000-square-foot office building in northeast Washington, D.C., for $23.3 million to private investor Kim Myung. According to Yardi Matrix, the buyer secured a $15.6 million permanent loan for the acquisition, from Wilmington Savings Fund Society. Greysteel arranged the transaction.

Built in 1937 as an industrial property, the structure was converted into an office building in 1995 and renovated in 2005. The multi-tenant asset features retail space on the first floor and 143 grade-level parking spaces, with a parking ratio of 1.61 spaces per 1,000 square feet. The tenant roster includes A Digital Solutions, Life Enchantment Services, Aqua Bar and Lounge, First Choice Masonry and Hugee Corp., among others.
