Southeast Real Estate Business • December 2016 • 19 TROPHY OFFICE GOT TOP BILLING TOP DEALS from page 1 The No. 6 investment sale in 2016 was Rubenstein Partners and AIG's $265 million purchase of Sanctuary Park, a 1.6 million-square-foot office park in Alpharetta, Ga. involve foreign buyers," says Cas- sidy. Three of the top five office transac- tions in Washington, D.C., this year featured foreign buyers, a trend that Cassidy says is rooted in a conver- gence of factors. Although the office market has suffered in recent years due to downsizing law firms and government sequestration, Washing- ton, D.C., is still an attractive long- term investment and is viewed as a relative bargain compared to New York and San Francisco. "We're generally a liquid market and the lot size is generally smaller than other targeted [gateway] cit- ies," says Cassidy. "The Brexit effect has also increased the flow of over- seas capital into the United States as groups are bypassing the UK and exploring markets other than New York City. For the first time in my ca- reer we are seeing every denomina- tion of foreign capital represented all simultaneously, be the monies from Canada, Europe, the Middle East or Asia." The top 20 single-property invest- ment sales in the Southeast featured five office transactions in the metro Washington, D.C., area. Additionally, 12 of the transactions involve office buildings around the Southeast.
