LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Transwestern Investment Group (TIG®) announces it has acquired 8401 Air Commerce Drive on behalf of a separately managed account. The 314,102-square-foot industrial asset located in Louisville, Kentucky, is fully leased to Johnson Controls Inc.   

“8401 Air Commerce Drive sits in one of the region’s most in-demand industrial submarkets,” said Andy Norman, Director of Asset Management, TIG. “Its irreplaceable location and high-quality tenancy made this acquisition an ideal opportunity that aligned with our strategic approach of acquiring well-positioned assets within key logistics markets across the United States.”

Situated in Louisville’s Airport submarket, the distribution center is within a 10-minute drive to Louisville International Airport, one of the top 10 busiest cargo airports in the world, as well as UPS Worldport, CSX Louisville Intermodal Terminal and the Ford Louisville Assembly Plant. The property also offers convenient access to Interstates 65 and 265, allowing for distribution to 66% of the U.S. population within one day. 

The Louisville Airport submarket continues to experience a rise in demand due to its strategic location, highway connectivity and growing consumer base.
