Patterson-Woods Commercial Properties/CORFAC International Completes $20.4 Million Lease with U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware

Wilmington, DE (February 5, 2016) – Patterson-Woods Commercial Properties/CORFAC International, a leading full-service commercial real estate provider serving the Mid-Atlantic market, today disclosed the completion of a new 65,941 square foot office lease for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the district of Delaware at 824 N. Market Street in Wilmington, DE.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court premises comprise the 3rd, 5th, and 6th floors and a portion of the 2nd floor of the 196,969-square-foot office building, which is owned by NNN 824 North Market Street, LLC. The new 10-year U.S. Bankruptcy Court lease has a gross value of $20.4 million. Although the Courts were an established tenant, due to the scope of the commitment the General Services Administration (GSA) dictated the protocol for a new negotiated lease agreement.

Bart Mackey, Principal at Patterson-Woods, represented the landlord and negotiated directly with the General Services Administration, the Courts’ representative, in the lease transaction. There were no other brokers involved in the transaction.

“The quality of the existing highly improved infrastructure and a central location were contributing factors to the Courts decision making,” said Mackey. “After a thorough evaluation and a partial footprint consolidation, the Courts committed to continued tenancy by a new 10-year lease at 824 N. Market Street.”

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court now occupies approximately 33% of the building. In addition to office tenants, the building’s retail level tenants include local stalwart Brew Ha Ha!, Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches and a Santander Bank branch.
