Thibeault Development Sells Two Ultra-Core Boston Sites to Developer

Boston, April 18, 2018 – Colliers International’s Investment Sales team recently announced the $23 million sale of two urban-core properties in Boston, Massachusetts. The properties, formerly owned by Thibeault Development, include 13-21 Congress Street, a 54,450-square-foot building in Boston’s Financial District, and 27-29 Stuart Street, a 10,540-square-foot property in Boston’s Theatre District. Hemisphere Development purchased both assets with redevelopment intentions. Additionally, Colliers International’s Capital Markets Team worked on behalf of the new owner to secure $21.5 million in acquisition and pre-development financing through Knighthead Funding, LLC.  

During its ownership, Thibeault Development added approximately $4.5 million in value 10 13-21 Congress Street and $1.875 million to 27-29 Stuart Street. In Financial District centric locations, both properties serve as vital connectors between North and South Stations, as well as other key Boston neighborhoods. They uniquely service the needs of pedestrians, being accessible to multiple MBTA Lines within just a five-minute walk. Congress Street, located on the main artery of Boston’s Financial District, directly abuts Related Beal’s highly anticipated Congress Square redevelopment project.

“The sales of Congress & Stuart Street were done with seamless execution from all parties involved and we look forward to seeing the successful future development of these two sites,” noted senior vice president Christopher Sower of the Colliers Multi-Family Investment Sales team. “As always, it has been a pleasure working with the Thibeault Development team and we await opportunities to collaborate with Hemisphere Development in the future,” added executive vice president Scott Dragos of the Colliers Investment Sales team.

The Colliers Investment Sales team representing the seller, Thibeault Properties, was led by Multi-Family Investment Sales team leader, Chris Sower, Investment Sales team leader, Scott Dragos, and Capital Markets EVP, Jeff Black. Rose Zhao represented the buyer, Hemisphere Development, in the transaction.
