1200 Ashwood cbre will yowell steelbridge capital miami under contract lnr foreclosure griffin capital
Miami-based Steelbridge Capital is  under contract  to buy 1200 Ashwood in Central Perimeter (pictured here), sources tell us. CB Richard Ellis' Will Yowell and his team have the listing on the more than  188k SF building for LNR, which foreclosed on it last year from Calif.-based Griffin Capital for $5.5M. Will didn't return messages seeking comment, and a spokesperson for Steelbridge also declined to comment. As much as we'd love to know (so we could tell you) we don't have the potential purchase price. One source familiar with the transaction says the deal could close by October.

Architectural firm Gensler has  inked a deal  for more than  21k SF at 999 Peachtree, the 28-story office tower owned by Jamestown.
