Sacramento CA: About a week ago, 621 Capitol Mall sold for $161,000,000. This amounts to $439 per square foot; nearly $100 a square foot more than what Wells Fargo Center sold for 14 months ago. 621 Capitol Mall (aka US Bank Tower) was built in 2008 and is home to Downey Brand, US Bank and
For decades, Sacramento has been considered a secondary or tertiary market. For those who bought-in 3 to 5 years ago, they are now reaping the benefits.

How About Those Sacramento Kings? The Kings won last night without their Big Man, Cousins.

The Greater Sacramento Economic Council (GSEC) invited a select group of commercial real estate brokers over to their office last night. Barry Broome, President and CEO, laid out GSEC’s game plan. The first step, which seems to be coming to a close, has been to get organized and get a lay of the land. GSEC understands
Downtown Sacramento Class A office rents have increased significantly over the last 6 months, and it seems that the expectations of most Tenant’s have adjusted in step. I think a big reason why most tenants have adapted (begrudgingly) to increased rent is because Downtown Sacramento is a different value proposition. A client of mine owns
It’s not the Gold Rush……. Gradual Value Appreciation? I think not.
