IRVINE, CA—A Honolulu-based, 83,906-square-foot office building, One South King, was among the 48 commercial assets for which Auction.com LLC facilitated closings during the month of April. The combined total sales price for the online marketplace’s April transactions, which included office, multifamily, hotel and retail properties, was more than $148 million.
GlobeSt.com was unable to reach Auction.com prior to deadline to discuss whether its high aggregated monthly sales prices are related to increasing commercial real estate sales prices in general, or whether the phenomenon is being caused by other factors.
Other notable closings during the month include:
- Overland Park Trade Center, a 651,648-square-foot office property in Overland Park, KS
- The Hayden, a five-unit, 9.624-square-foot luxury apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side in New York
