Bank ground lease sells for $7 million, or $1,772 per square foot
Calkain Cos. reports that it recently represented the seller of a Middleburg Bank ground lease in Ashburn in a transaction that brought $7 million or about $1,722 per square foot.
The purchaser was a large 1031 exchange buyer. According to Calkain, the bank property, an outparcel to the Giant-anchored Ashburn Farm Market Center, is subject to a long-term ground lease with favorable terms and structured rent escalations.
Middleburg Bank is a community bank that has been in business since 1924, operating 12 locations throughout Northern Virginia.
“The sale of the Middleburg Bank [ground lease] reflects the strength of the greater Washington, D.C., market, especially Loudoun County, which is one the area’s most affluent and fastest-growing counties,’’ Andrew Fallon, an executive managing director for Calkain who represented the seller, said in a statement.
