Atlanta Deal Sheet: KDC Buys Back Part Of State Farm's Campus
The developer of two of State Farm’s Atlanta corporate campus buildings has purchased them back from the insurance giant.
KDC purchased Park Center Buildings 2 and 3 in Dunwoody from State Farm for an undisclosed sum. KDC developed the buildings as part of a three-tower build-to-suit for State Farm that it started in 2014. Park Center 1, which is 620K SF, was completed in 2016 and is directly connected to the Dunwoody MARTA Station.
State Farm subleased most of Park Center 1 last year to Carvana as the insurance giant pivoted to a hybrid work model amid the pandemic. The two buildings KDC bought are located off Perimeter Center Parkway and Hammond Drive.
Building 2 is 621K SF with some 39K SF of ground-floor retail, while Building 3 is 440K SF. DeKalb County property records have yet to reflect the details of the transaction, but the county valued Building 2 at $240.4M and Building 3 at $177.3M earlier this year.
Northmarq Capital Managing Directors Philip Askew and Ronald Reese, along with Senior Director Charlie Robinson, helped arrange KDC’s financing on the purchase with life insurance companies, according to a release.
