Bend Bulletin Building Bought for $13.15 Mil


The Bend Bulletin building in Bend, OR was purchased by Chandler Center LLC for $13.15 mil. The property, which was marketed as part of Western Communications’ bankruptcy proceedings, contains 86.4k sf ($152/sf) of office and industrial space on 9.78 acres at 1777 SW Chandler Ave.

The Bend Bulletin was built in 2000 by Western Communications to house the staff and printing press for the Bend Bulletin newspaper. EO Media Group, who acquired the Bend Bulletin earlier this year, will lease a portion of the building.

Paige Morgan and Charles Safley at CBRE’s Portland office partnered with Gardner Williams and Graham Dent of Compass Commercial in Bend to represent the seller, while Dan Kemp with Compass Commercial repped the buyer.

“The Bend Bulletin building offered a unique opportunity to control a large block of quality office and industrial space in a low vacancy, land-constrained market with limited supply,” said CBRE’s Paige Morgan. “In addition to the existing building, the sale included more than nine acres of land that’s zoned for mixed-use development.”

“This property is located on the highly-desirable west side of Bend near many of our city’s most sought-after amenities,” said Compass Commercial’s Gardner Williams. “As the new owner looks to further develop the property, it will be able to provide tenants a convenient location and a competitive advantage for recruiting employees.”

Bend was ranked as the “Best Performing Small City” in the nation by The Milken Institute in 2018, which is the third consecutive year the metro has taken that honor. The organization cited unmatched 5-year job and wage growth, strong high-tech performance and substantial investment in its knowledge economy via the Oregon State University-Cascades Campus. The Bend metro boasts an unemployment rate of 3.6% and projected job growth of 55.7%, compared to a national average of 33.5%, over the next 10 years.

Dan Kemp and Adam Bledsoe from Compass Commercial Real Estate have been hired to re-tenant the building.
