Washington, D.C. — HFF has arranged the $415 million sale of Washington Harbour, a 562,105-square-foot mixed-use project located along the Potomac River in Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown submarket.
Stephen Conley, Jim Meisel, Andrew Weir, Matt Nicholson and Dave Baker of HFF represented the seller, Principal Real Estate Investors (PREI), on behalf of a consortium of South Korean-based investors. Simone Investment and Hana Alternative Asset Management acted as the managing members of the consortium. Eyal Ofer’s Global Holdings Group, an international alliance of real estate asset management and investment advisory companies, purchased the asset. Designed by Arthur Cotton Moore, Washington Harbour comprises two freestanding, Class A towers. The property underwent a $50 million renovation in 2013 that delivered new retail and street-level experiences, including a fountain with programmable light and water shows in the spring and summer that transforms into a 12,000-square-foot ice skating rink in the fall and winter months. The project was 98 percent leased at the time of sale to 31 tenants including Foley & Lardner, Kelley Drye & Warren, advertising firm GMMB Inc., and retail tenants such as Fiola Mare, Farmers Fishers Bakers, Bangkok Joe’s, Sequoia, Tony & Joe’s Seafood Place and Nick’s Riverside Grill.
