CLEARWATER, Fla., March 18, 2021 – Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), announced today the sale of Bay Vista Gardens, a two-property, five-building office/flex portfolio in Clearwater, Florida.
“Bay Vista Gardens is an emerging technology center with a strong tenant mix of high-tech businesses and engineering, legal and research firms,” said Douglas K. Mandel, IPA executive managing director. “Companies are drawn to the Tampa Bay Area by the region’s favorable tax and regulatory environment, growing labor pool and the low costs of living and doing business.” Mandel and Jaclyn Blair, senior associate in Marcus & Millichap’s Tampa office, represented the seller, a joint-venture partnership led by Ryan Companies, US Inc., and procured the buyer, GBA 135 LLC, a joint venture between Genet Property Group and Biscayne Atlantic.
