Douglas Wilson Companies (DWC) has recently completed the receivership sale of a parking lot, located at Fifth Avenue and Stewart Street in downtown Seattle, for 16.75 million. The property was purchased by San Francisco-based Stanford Hotels Corp.
DWC engaged Craig Hill and Janet Backus, brokers with NAI Puget Sound Properties, to market the property for sale. The sale was conducted via auction by the Receiver after obtaining court-approved bidding procedures.
Douglas Wilson Companies’ (DWC) Brokerage Division has recently sold a gas station, convenience store and café located in Sonora, CA out of receivership.
Douglas P. Wilson, Chairman and CEO of DWC, was named as the court-appointed Receiver in May of 2012. Immediately upon taking control of the property, DWC secured the non-operational facility and maintained the asset throughout receivership.
Alan Scott, Managing Director of DWC’s Brokerage Division, handled the marketing a sale of the property. This effort included extensive outreach to gas and convenience station owners and operators throughout the region.
The court-approved sale of this property highlights the unique ability of DWC’s Brokerage Division to market and sell various assets within – and outside of – the judicial process. Notable recent sales include: C.W. McGrath Quarries, two rock quarries totaling 86.57 acres in San Diego, CA; the former Wyndham O’Hare, a 466-room hotel located in Rosemont, IL; and Shadow Ranch, a 65-acre property located at Interstate 10 and Monroe St. in Indio, CA.
