HFF, the real estate services firm, marketed the property and arranged the sale.

“A substantial portion of the sale proceeds will be going to a charitable foundation,” Peter Nordblom, president of the Nordblom Co., said in a statement. “The funding of the foundation is the result of several generations’ efforts and the estate planning by Rodger Nordblom, who wanted the family to continue a legacy of contribution to the community. A professional advisory team will be developing a strategic plan for the foundation to implement this vision.”

Peter Nordblom noted that his family has been affiliated with 50 Congress St. for more than 60 years.
