Granite Properties-Schlumberger Sale
Alex Payne of Axis Realty Group was hired as the leasing agent by Granite Properties for the 300,000 SF Class A Industrial Business Park- Granite Point in 2009. Building II (152,500 SF) had been vacant since construction in 2006.
Alex became aware of a corporate user looking to purchase a property that fit this description in summer of 2010 and presented it to them. However it would require quick action and total confidentiality as to the identity of the purchaser on the part of the seller. Terms were quickly agreed to and the property was closed in September, within 60 days of the initial property tour. It was announced at that time that Schlumberger, an international oilfield service company, would occupy the building and approximately 30 acres as a maintenance facility for their oilfield service trucks. The facility opened in Spring of 2011.
