The sale marks the property's first time on the market in 30 years. Multiple bidders were interested in it, according to Azzi Advisors President and Executive Managing Director Investments at Marcus & Millichap Tony Azzi.

"We had a lot of interest on this deal due to its location and the potential upside on future rents," Azzi said. "The property had been in the same family for many years, and rents were substantially below market. We received multiple offers and the highest bidder won."
