Commercial real estate and investment services Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI) recently announced the $9.35 million sale of Calaveras Park Professional Center, a 21,008-square-foot, multi-tenant medical dental office park in Milpitas, California.

“This sale completes a 1031 exchange that started with the listing of a development property in Sunnyvale more than two years ago,” Vincent Schwab, senior managing director investments in Marcus & Millichap’s San Francisco office, said in a prepared statement. “Numerous office building developers attempted to buy the land but faced substantial hurdles in obtaining entitlements. The 3.4-acre development site experienced numerous challenges while the city was refining the Peery Park specific plan. We closed that property earlier in May with a South Carolina-based hotel developer and my clients exchanged into the Calaveras Park Professional Center and an apartment complex in San Jose.”

Schwab procured the buyer, Sinogap LLC, a Cupertino, California-based family office, and represented the seller, JB Matteson Co. of San Mateo, California.
