June 15, 2022

NASHVILLE – The Worsham Group has sold a three-property office portfolio, totaling 217,820 square feet in Nashville, Tennessee, to Hessel Properties for $30 million, or $138 per square foot. Transwestern Real Estate Services’ (TRS) Senior Managing Directors Kevin Markwordt and John Bell represented the seller in the 1031 exchange transaction, which included the following properties:

  • Airways Plaza I and II, a 147,598-square-foot, two-building office complex at 1281 and 1283 Murfreesboro Pike in Nashville, Tennessee. Airways I was 100% occupied Airways II was 100% vacant at the time of sale.
  • 112 Long Hollow Pike, a 25% occupied, 43,622-square-foot property in Goodlettsville, Tennessee.
  • 750 Envious Lane, a 50% occupied, 26,600-square-foot asset in Nashville, Tennessee.

“With an influx of capital entering the market and a high volume of properties trading, a 1031 exchange can be the smartest play,” said Markwordt. “We are tracking an increase in these types of transactions with investors targeting value-add assets that can be purchased at a lower basis.”
