This Week's Boston Deal Sheet
Purchased three years ago for $11M, 333 Summer St just sold for $74.25M to a partnership of Lincoln Property Co and Maryland-based ASB Capital Management. You may recall the five-story, 117k SF office building also recently survived a fire.
Synergy Investments and San Francisco-based DivcoWest Properties purchased the building in 2013 for $11M. While work was first underway to convert the building to offices, a fire tore through the space. Now, renovations have been completed and tech firm LogMeIn is signed on for a 12-year lease.
