HFF Secures $8.9M Sale of Newmarket Center in Boston
BOSTON — HFF has secured the $8.9 million sale of Newmarket Center, a 55,000-square-foot office building located at 67 Kemble St. in Boston’s Roxbury submarket. HFF arranged the sale on behalf of the seller, DDJB Real Estate Holdings, and procured the buyer, The Winhall Cos., on an off-market basis. Urban Core Development redeveloped the property and served as its manager. Newmarket Center was originally built in the 1880s to house one of the area’s blacksmith shops, which operated until the 1930s. After sitting vacant, the building was again occupied in the 1940s by Newmarket Wool and operated as a wool storage and sorting warehouse for roughly 50 years. The building then ended up vacant during the late 1990s. Urban Core Development redeveloped the former warehouse into a loft-style office building in 2014 and 2015. Ben Sayles and Adam Dunn led the HFF investment sales team representing the seller.
