transaction was a challenge as the owner of the leasehold estate was interested in selling but the fee owner was not look- ing to sell. The market was pri- marily interested in purchas- ing the fee and the leasehold. It took many months for David Thurston to work with the fee owner to sell and then it took another lengthy period to get the two sellers to agree on pric- ing. The transaction took nine months from LOI to closing but through the efforts of all the parties and their lawyers and the bank, the transaction closed. “As is typical in today’s

market, all parties had to work collaboratively to achieve a result which was satisfactory to all. This particular deal was a special challenge as there were more parties and more challenges than usual. It was a real pleasure to work with the parties, their lawyers and the bank to reach closing. Ev- eryone had the same goal in mind and had to compromise on many issues to complete the transaction”, said Thurston The seller was represented by Scott Lippert, Esq. of Pa- shman Stein, PC , and John S. Stolz, Esq. of Lowenstein

Sandler, PC represented the buyer in this transaction. The lender was Columbia Bank with a team of bankers led by Paul Heilmann , SVP com- mercial lending real estate.
