In 2010, Heartland was engaged by Aspen Growth and its lender, Wells Fargo, to develop and implement a disposition strategy for a land asset in downtown Bellevue encumbered with unique development constraints benefitting a Bank of America branch that currently occupies the Site. This engagement involved a comprehensive review of the existing site conditions and due diligence materials, a comprehensive review of all “as vacant” land sale transactions in the Bellevue CBD in the past five years, a comprehensive analysis of the residential and commercial office markets in the Bellevue CBD over the next 10 years, and a detailed feasibility alternatives analysis of six different development scenarios for the site. We then developed an Offering Memorandum and used a high-touch marketing effort to reach out to a target list of qualified developers capable of absorbing the constraints and closing the deal. Heartland’s actions resulted in the successful sale of the property to Schnitzer West in December 2013.
