740,000 SF 71 Acres
Multek needed to dispose of their printed circuit board manufacturing plant. The entire facility was once a part of a 300 acre IBM facility in Austin, Texas. The campus shared one, central utility plant, and the subject site was divided from the main campus; however, 63 shared easements remained with the adjacent property. The subject property was functionally obsolete and situated over an aquifer for the City of Austin. Also, the adjacent property owner had the first right of opportunity on leases and acquisitions on the property.
Alternative purchasers were identified and a competitive environment was established for a sale of the property. The adjacent property owner was the successful purchaser and turned the site into what is now known as The Domain –a highly successful “live/work/play” development in Austin, Texas. Multek was able to dispose of a functionally obsolete asset that was acquired by them through a merger with a competitor at an attractive sale price.
