Acquisitions advance strategy to acquire well-located, underutilized industrial assets in major U.S. markets at attractive prices
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Boston-based real estate investment firm Longpoint announced today that it has acquired three industrial buildings in Los Angeles County – John Reed Commerce Center, 2854 Supply Avenue, and 6480 Corvette Street – totaling 321,479 square feet. John Reed is located in City of Industry, CA and both 2854 Supply and 6480 Corvette are located in Commerce, CA. These acquisitions present Longpoint with the opportunity to increase its investment in two of the premier logistics and distribution hubs in Los Angeles County.
John Reed Commerce Center, 2854 Supply Ave., and 6480 Corvette St. all benefit from strategic transit-oriented locations in key industrial submarkets within Greater Los Angeles, and all feature vacancy rates of two percent or less. Moreover, these assets were acquired at attractive prices with immediate mark-to-market upside. Longpoint plans to make market-ready improvements across all properties and lease remaining vacancies to a local distributor, wholesale, or ecommerce tenant.
“These acquisitions are a compelling opportunity to acquire functional, well-located industrial assets in the heart of two of Southern California’s most desirable logistics and distribution nodes,” said Dwight Angelini, Managing and Founding Partner of Longpoint. “Our team’s deep market and industry expertise, along with our extensive network of established relationships in the market, led to the off-market opportunities. We are focused on growing our portfolio in California’s highly sought-after industrial market.”
Cushman & Wakefield National Industrial Advisory Group brokered the transaction for John Reed Commerce Center, and Alex Blecksmith with Colliers International brokered the transactions for 2854 Supply Ave. and 6480 Corvette St.
