TradeMark Properties Assists with Sale of Prime Glenwood South Property

Caviness Building and Adjacent Parcel Sell for $3,025,000

Raleigh, NC, January 30, 2020 – TradeMark Properties is pleased to announce its role in the sale of a prime piece of property in Raleigh’s thriving Glenwood South District. TradeMark Vice Presidents Sandra Simpson and Jonathan M. Bassi represented West Johnson Group, LLC in the sale of The Caviness Building and its adjacent parcel at 701 and 719 West Johnson Street.  The buyer is AmTech Properties, LLC, a sister company of AmTech Construction, LLC. The company was founded by Ali Mousavi, President and CEO, and Dr. Samila Mohseni, Vice President. Ravand Realty represented AmTech Properties in the purchase of the property.

The fully leased three-story office/retail building was built in 1954 and is located at the corner of W. Johnson Street and North Boylan Avenue. It sold on January 30,  for $3,025,000. The two parcels total .43 acres and consist of 11,858 square feet of office space.

“We were in a multiple offer situation, and the buyer was fortunate to acquire a stabilized asset in an area with such high barriers to entry,” said Simpson.  

The Caviness Building’s major tenants include Curve Makers, Rogers Word Service, Cyber Exchange, Honeycutt Consulting Group and Feedtrail. It has 12 units and the site has 27 paved surface parking spaces. The building is within walking distance to the Publix that will be coming soon to the area, as well as numerous restaurants, bars, retail and entertainment.

The site will benefit from increased visibility with southbound Capital Boulevard traffic exiting to Peace Street now being directed on to W. Johnson Street.  The new interchange is a part of the NC DOT Peace Street and Capital Boulevard revised interchange and bridge replacement to help accommodate for the increased traffic with new developments such as Smoky Hollow. 

“With southbound traffic now being directed onto W. Johnson St instead of Peace Street, this asset and the surrounding properties will play a crucial role in the future landscape of Downtown,” said Bassi.

This is the third property sold by the team, as they recently represented the Raleigh-based hospitality development group MJM Group on the sale of the .36-acre property at 615 W. Peace Street. That property was sold to Lock 7 Development with plans for a new four-story, mixed-use building calling for 24 condos and 1,500 SF of retail space.
