A pension fund for operating engineers put on the market a 208,000-square-foot office building in Pasadena.

Operating Engineers Funds listed the Lake Corson Building at 301 N. Lake Avenue at an undisclosed price, the Los Angeles Business Journal reported.

The Pasadena-based fund, which represents more than 20,000 members of the International Union of Operating Engineers, bought the complex in 2008, property records show. The 11-story building was constructed in 1989.

Brokers familiar with the property estimate it could sell for roughly $350 per square foot, or $73 million, according to the report. That’s in the same ballpark as what Coretrust Capital recently paid for the four-building Corporate Center Pasadena Campus last month. That $260 million deal for the 640,000-square-foot campus translated to just over $400 a square foot.
