D&S plans big new Midtown project – but not right away

Published on March 21, 2022

The Sacramento-based infill developer doesn’t own, yet, all of the parcels for the proposed K21 project, which would have 296 apartments above 8,000 square feet of commercial space on the northwest corner of 21st and K streets in Midtown.

According to the application, K21 would be an eight-story, 250,595-square-foot building with 233 studio units, 50 one-bedroom units and 13 two-bedroom units. Sizes would range from 410 square feet for studios to 986 square feet for the two-bedroom apartments.

Ground-floor space would be 8,000 square feet and is described as “sales” in the application, indicating a store rather than a bar or restaurant, for example, as found in many similar projects. However, the plans show that square footage split between eight smaller spaces, most of them around 900 square feet each.

Ken Turton of Turton Commercial Real Estate, which brokered the sales of 1020 21st and 2015 K St., said at the time that 2025 K St. is going to be sold as well, but with a long escrow. The application notes the separate ownership for that parcel.

MARRS building in Midtown listed for sale

Published on April 13, 2022

The MARRS building, a two-story adaptive reuse project of retail and office space, is being listed by Turton Commercial Real Estate for $21.75 million. “Everything we think about Midtown is embodied in MARRS,” said Ken Turton, whose boutique commercial brokerage was in the building on 20th and K’s northwest corner from 2010 to 2014.

Turton said retail space in the building, including some currently available, is always hotly sought after. But Heller Pacific President Mike Heller and project partner Mark Friedman want tenants who both complement the others and provide something unique, Turton said.

Spotlight on John McCallum, Turton Commercial Real Estate

Published on February 7, 2022

A commercial real estate veteran, John McCallum has joined boutique brokerage Turton Commercial to specialize in financing deals.

Why did you decide to make the move to Turton?

I’ve been with MacLaughlin & Co. as a borrower advocate and broker since 2010. It’s about the exposure here, and the marketing and, honestly, the challenge in building a team. I want to pass along what’s been freely given to me. And I can continue to advocate for borrowers, because I don’t work for banks.

D&S Development buys two-property Midtown site for $3.5 million

Published on January 14, 2022

Records show D&S Development bought 1020 21st St./2015 K St. for $3.5 million from developer Mark Friedman, though records suggest Mike Heller, a frequent development partner of Friedman, was also involved. “It’s great real estate, no doubt about it,” said Ken Turton of Turton Commercial Real Estate, which brokered the sale of the two properties. “It’s never difficult to lease up a property in this area.”

Combined, the two properties are .58 of an acre, at one of the busiest intersections in Midtown. A two-story, 7,614-square-foot office building is at 1020 21st St., while much of the rest of the two properties is parking. It’s not clear if there’s a current tenant in the building.

Clippinger offering office building near Capitol for purchase

Published on January 5, 2021

We are very bullish on the property.”

Kolokotronis family buys Sacramento condo project for $4.45 million

Published on January 1, 2021

Typically, SKK Developments in Sacramento sells projects after completing them, but members of the family behind the company turned that equation around in a recent deal. According to Sotiris Kolokotronis, his kids led the charge to buy the completed Penthomes condominium development within Sacramento infill project Mill at Broadway. Escrow closed in late December on the 12-unit project to Kolokotronis family members for $4.45 million. After Turton Commercial Real Estate listed the project for sale in September, there was as much buyer interest as any listing the firm had all year, said Scott Kingston of Turton, who brokered the deal with Ken Turton and Zachary Hooker.
