NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – Carlyle Realty paid $22 million for a newly constructed, 140,000-square-foot office building in the Gainey Center, a complex that is being developed in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Carlyle bought the building from Opus West Corp. of Phoenix, which is planning to develop a total of 280,000 sf at Gainey Center. The complex comprises the office component of Gainey Village, a mixed-use project that will include a high-end retail center, a luxury housing development and a residential/resort lodging facility.

Carlyle, a Washington-based investment firm, has already signed up four tenants to long-term leases covering 90,000 sf of the building. The leases are valued at nearly $23 million.

The four tenants are: Wells Fargo Bank (44,400 sf), Kutak Rock (23,000 sf), Saleslogix (17,000 sf) and Realty Executives (5,000 sf). The leases were arranged by Joseph Collura of ZKS Real Estate Partners.

Gainey Center I is Carlyle's second major investment in the Phoenix market in the past three months. In August, it bought the Airport Technology Center, a 196,000 sf building at 4127 East Van Buren.

Carlyle currently owns more than 8 million sf of office space, 10 million sf of industrial space and 5 million sf of retail space, as well as raw land and hotels.
