Marcus & Millichap Arranges Sale of 135,779 SF Industrial Building in Lawrence


LAWRENCE, MA – Marcus & Millichap announced the sale of 516 Broadway Street, a 135,770-square foot industrial property located in Lawrence, MA.

Thomas Shihadeh, regional manager of the firm’s Boston office, said the asset sold for $2,900,000.

Harrison Klein and Luigi Lessa, investment specialists in Marcus & Millichap’s Boston office, had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller. The buyer was also secured and represented by Harrison Klein and Luigi Lessa.

“We are delighted to have represented B&M Office in the sale of 516 Broadway in Lawrence. The lack of industrial assets available for sale in the area attracted fierce competition. We generated numerous offers with the property ultimately trading above the initial asking price. The buyer is expected to redevelop this site, adding to the momentum created by the Loft Five50’s apartment redevelopment next door. The buyer, a joint venture, looks forward to continuing to enhance this neighborhood,” said Lessa.

Klein added, “This sale is indicative of the strength of the Lawrence market. We had multiple offers on the asset, coming from as far away as Utah and Nevada. Potential uses included self-storage, industrial, and residential conversions. It was a pleasure helping our client reinvest in a building that better fits the needs of his thriving business.” The Klein Group also facilitated the sale of 5 Lake Street in Lawrence in November 2020 and successfully handled the auction process for 65 Manchester Street in Lawrence this March. The team is excited to continue working with buyers and sellers in this rapidly transforming urban area.

Located less than 2 miles from primary I-93, with access to downtown Boston in under 28 minutes, and access to the New Hampshire border in under 10 minutes. The site provides immediate proximity to the best manufacturing labor pool in the state. Built at the turn of the 20th century, the building has been well-maintained and updated over the years. Recent additions to the building include five new truck docks in 2017 and state-of-the-art showroom and office space updated in 2018. Two hundred and seventy-five parking spaces were included in the sale.
