Legacy Real Estate Ventures has acquired its second Newton, MA office property from Wingate Companies

Legacy Real Estate Makes Second Buy at Newton’s Wells Ave. Business Park

Newmark arranged the sale of 70 Wells Ave., an office building located within Wells Avenue Business Park in Newton, MA. Legacy Real Estate Ventures paid $4 million-plus to acquire the 28,244-square-foot property from Wingate Companies.

Co-head of U.S. capital markets Robert Griffin and associate directors Joseph Alvarado, George Demoulas and Casey Valente represented the seller and procured the buyer. The deal represents the second repositioning opportunity Legacy has acquired from Wingate within the business park.

“This asset is an exceptional complement to ownership’s recently acquired 189 Wells Avenue, the 31,291-square-foot office building they acquired from Wingate Companies last June, and we look forward to witnessing continued milestones at the site,” said Alvarado.

Wells Avenue Business Park is home to a diverse office, life science, medical and academic tenant roster. Nearby users include Bright Horizons, CyberArk, Karyopharm Therapeutics, Mass General Brigham’s Newton-Wellesley Ambulatory Care Center, the UMass Amherst Mount Ida Campus and William James College.
