A Denver investor has sold a 120,000-square-foot office building in Tustin for $91 million.

SteelWave, in a joint venture with an unnamed investor, sold the two-story building at 1382 Bell Avenue, the Orange County Register reported. The buyer was not identified.

The sale price comes out to $758 per square foot.

The single-tenant building, on 6 acres near the city’s 1,600-acre Tustin Legacy community, is leased to Orange County through 2047.

Blake Bokosky, Mark DeGiorgio, Michael Leggett, Adam Lasoff, Patrick Burger and Makenna Peter of JLL Capital Markets represented the seller.
