TEMPE, ARIZ. — A joint venture between Transwestern Investment Group (TIG) and JDM Partners has acquired a 2 million-square-foot office property in Tempe in a sale-leaseback with State Farm Automobile Insurance. The Class A campus, called Marina Heights, is located at 300-600 Rio Salado Parkway. The price was not disclosed.
The five-building campus includes ground-floor retail, restaurants and other amenities. It is situated between Arizona State University and Tempe Town Lake. Marina Heights will be a future stop for the Tempe Streetcar, directly connecting the campus to the airport, downtown and central Phoenix, as well as west Mesa via the Valley Metro Light Rail.
A wholly owned subsidiary of TIG will manage the investments. Transwestern will also provide management services. The firm’s legal adviser was King & Spalding, while Eastdil Secured was the debt capital adviser.
