Trinity Capital Advisors and Durlach Associates sell Charleston’s Faber Plaza to Hall Capital

February 8, 2018

Trinity Capital Advisors and Durlach Associates recently closed the sale of Faber Plaza at 4400 Leeds Avenue in Charleston, South Carolina, to a partnership including Hall Capital and Durlach Associates for $36.4 million. Trinity Capital and Durlach Associates developed the 125,822 SF Class-A building in 2015 in a joint-venture.  CBRE’s Patrick Gildea, Matt Smith, and Charlie Carmody managed the asset disposition process on behalf of ownership.

Hall Capital is a family-owned private investment company with offices in Oklahoma City, Nashville, Chicago, Dallas, and Tulsa. The firm’s investment focus falls into four key areas: real estate, private equity, automotive, and oil & gas.

“We were able to capitalize, develop, and successfully exit one of the larger speculative office buildings the Charleston market has seen in years,” Gary Chesson, Founding Partner at Trinity Capital Advisors, said. “We couldn’t have done it without Durlach Associates, a fantastic local partner for us.”

“A seamless partnership between Durlach Associates and Trinity Capital delivered an exceptional building which we believe will continue to set the standard for Class-A office space in the market for years to come,” Marc Durlach, CEO of Durlach Associates, said.

Faber Plaza is a five-story office building whose tenant roster includes Blue Cross Blue Shield, Paychex, Cummins, HDR, Sonepar, TranSystems, and TY Lin International. Building features include a spacious lobby with 12-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and outstanding park views. The column-free building features 25,000 SF floorplates that allow for maximum flexibility and design efficiency. Highly visible from Leeds Avenue, the building offers immediate access to Interstate 526 and Interstate 26 and is surrounded by more than 50 restaurants, 20 hotels and 12 banks.

“Charleston has proven to be a terrific office market with real rental rate growth, and an expanding tenant base. We’re hopeful that this is the first of many office investments we make in Charleston,” added Chesson.

Trinity Capital is currently actively developing more than 550,000 SF of Class-A office space: Perimeter Five, Perimeter Six, and 2200 Perimeter in Raleigh’s Perimeter Park.
