Meridian Capital Group’s Barry Lefkowitz and Scott Rosenstock arranged the transaction out of the firm’s Iselin, N.J., office.

Located four miles from the University of Arizona campus, the two-story building sits on just under 7 acres. Community amenities include covered parking, nearby public transportation, a swimming pool, a barbecue and picnic area, a laundry facility, gated access and two dog parks.
