Avison Young Completes Sale on Behalf of Legacy Real Estate Ventures

Boston— Avison Young recently announced the sale of 6 Merchant Street, a 30,300-square-foot industrial/flex property located in Sharon, MA.

Legacy Real Estate Ventures has sold the building for $2.9 million ($97 per square foot) to Franchi Merchant Street, LLP.

Avison Young Principals Michael Smith and Scott Jamieson, along with Vice-Presidents Brandon Dickason and Bill Sullivan, worked with Michael Price, Principal of Legacy Real Estate Ventures, on the sale of the building. Throughout the ownership period and sales transaction, Legacy was supported by Eastport Real Estate Service on the property management side – namely Mike Jaffee, who guided the process.

“Legacy held this property for seven years, and the Avison Young team identified the right timing and knew the market well enough to execute a sale that exceeded our projections,” comments Price.

“This was a terrific transaction supported by strong, active ownership, a quality local buyer and the overall strength of Boston’s industrial/flex market,” adds Dickason. “We are pleased with the activity and end result, and look forward to working with Legacy on future deals.”

Located on Route 1, x minutes from Route 95, 6 Merchant Street is a single-story industrial/flex building that is 100% leased to six quality tenants. Nearby amenities include Patriot Place, a 1.3-million-square-foot development featuring shopping, dining and entertainment.
