CHICAGO—Marcus & Millichap, a commercial real estate investment services firm, has just helped complete a transaction for a 16,000-square-foot retail building in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Acadia Realty Trust bought the building at 865 W. North Ave. for $14,750,000, or about $922-per-square-foot. The property is 100% net-leased by Forever 21, a clothing retailer.

Stephen Lieberman, a senior associate in Marcus & Millichap’s Chicago Downtown office, represented Acadia Realty Trust. The seller was Elk Grove Village, IL-based Tri-Equities LLC. “The property is a trophy asset located in an area that is seeing tremendous growth and development,” says Lieberman.
