The business park comprises 11 buildings at 14712 to 14662 Franklin Ave. in the Irvine Business Complex, an economic hub with more than 4,500 companies employing more than 110,000 workers at a site near the 55, 73 and 405 freeways.

This is the largest industrial investment sale in the Irvine Business Complex this year, states Michael Hartel, a senior vice president in the Irvine office of Voit Commercial Brokerage. Hartel and a team of Voit brokers including Kevin Turner, Trent Walker and Mark Weeks of the company’s Irvine office represented the buyer, with Jim Morrison of the Morrison Co. representing the seller HB Tustin Franklin LLC.

Despite the national hesitancy to invest in real estate due to the uncertain economic future, The Orange County industrial market remains a solid investment, Hartel says.
