Colliers International of Phoenix negotiated a $19 million sale ($132 PSF) at 3350 N Hemisphere Loop in Tucson. The 143,650-square-foot two-2 story office building was fully occupied by a long-term single-tenant when it sold and sits on 16 acres in Tucson Industrial Business Center, off Country Club and Valencia near Tucson International Airport.
Seattle-based DCG III, LLC sold the property to RACO (AZ), LLC of New York, an affiliate of W.P. Carey of New York.
