Gavilon’s new world headquarters has been sold to an affiliate of Lexington Realty Trust, a single-tenant real estate investment trust.

The Opus Group -- which developed and owned the downtown Omaha structure that is being leased long-term to Gavilon -- announced the sale, saying it represents the sixth deal where Opus and Lexington have partnered.

“Gavilon had a unique set of needs for their first corporate headquarters so our design-build team delivered a customized solution that was unique to Gavilon and would support the company’s growing business,” said Marshall Burton, executive vice president of Minneapolis-based Opus Development Company LLC.

Gavilon, a grain and commodity trading firm that does business globally, moved into the 128,000-square-foot building in December. The Gavilon home features a 50,000-square-foot column-free trading floor with 22-foot-high ceilings, glass walls and an open staircase connecting two levels.

A grand opening ceremony is planned for Monday.
