A Med City company paid $6.32 million for a Northwest Rochester commercial center last week.

The Broker Exchange Property PIV, LLC, a Rochester entity linked to the Broker Exchange Network, bought the 21-year-old retail center at 2800 to 2899 41st Street Northwest on June 11.

That’s the complex near Rochester’s north Target store that houses Five Guys, China Star, Scrubs & Beyond and other tenants.

Broker Exchange made a $1.58 million down payment at the time of the transaction. Based on the size of the building, the cost was $355 per square foot.

Olmsted County estimated the total market value of the property, which includes a 124 space parking lot, at $5.1 million for 2021-2022.

San Diego, Calif.-based HW Rochester, LLC sold the property. HW Rochester originally acquired it in 2016 for $5.2 million from Sara Investment Real Estate of Madison, Wis. under the corporate name of Rochester Marketplace Property Group LLC.

The Wisconsin group purchased it for $4.5 million in 2013.

That commercial strip at 2870 41st St. N.W. was built in 2000 as part of the overall Rochester Marketplace development by the Twin Cities developer Ryan Cos.
