Cushman & Wakefield today announced that Equity Office and Blackstone have sold New England Executive Park to Charles River Realty Investors and National Development for $216 million.

Griffin, Jr., Edward C. Maher Jr. and Matthew E. Pullen, along with leasing specialist Mark Roth, exclusively represented the buyer and seller.
