WASHINGTON, DC-Hines has acquired 2100 M St., a 306,663-sf office building in the CBD that is 99% leased. Hines did not release financial details; however Tonya Ginter, director of research and marketing for GVA Advantis, tells GlobeSt.com that the property traded for $152.5 million, or $497.29 per sf.

Prudential Real Estate Investors sold the property on behalf of German institutional investors in US Property Fund III. Cassidy & Pinkard represented the seller. Hines represented itself in the transaction.

Hines acquired the property through its US value-add office investment program; it is the program’s first DC acquisition. A longstanding investor in the DC market, Hines already owns Columbia Square, Franklin Square, Postal Square, 600 Thirteenth St., 370 L’Enfant Promenade, 1900 K St., 1200 19th St. and 1001 Pennsylvania Ave.

The building was completed in 1969, but has undergone significant renovations over the past 10 years. Tenants include the Urban Institute; the George Washington University; Perkins+Will Inc.; and the Stewart & Stewart Law Office.

One potential avenue Hines might explore to add value to the project is the potential development of an additional 100,000 sf, according Hines Vice President John Harned.

“The purchase of 2100 M St. gives Hines the opportunity to own a superbly located, fully leased building in Washington’s CBD,” he says in a statement.

Even though DC buildings have been trading at very high levels, Ginter says this particular sale stands out. “The seller got a nice price for a class B building.”
