DivcoWest Sells Austin Office Campus

HFF assisted the seller in the transaction and procured the buyer, a joint venture partnership between Vanderbilt Partners and True North Management Group.

HFF brokered the sale of and arranged acquisition financing for The Campus at Arboretum, a five-building, Class A office campus in Austin’s Northwest submarket. DivcoWest sold the property totaling 318,534 square feet to a partnership between Vanderbilt Partners and True North Management Group.
