Frates Building sells for $3M
HL Investments LLC has bought the Frates Building, 5005 N Lincoln Blvd., for $3 million from Bricktown Properties LLC, which had owned it for 10 years. The 37,000-square-foot, two-level building consists of two structures, one built in 1969 and the other built in 1974, according to the county assessor. Tim Strange, president of Newmark Grubb Levy Strange Beffort, represented the buyer and Craig Tucker, senior vice president of Price Edwards & Co., represented the seller. “The building is in excellent condition since it housed the operations of the longtime occupant C.L. Frates & Co.,” Strange said. The longtime tenant is an insurance agency founded in 1924.
