1.5 MSF industrial portfolio in Indianapolis trades
June 19, 2019
Dallas – Transwestern Investment Group (TIG®) today announces it has sold a 1.5 million-square-foot industrial portfolio on behalf of the Diversified International Partners Fund. A joint venture between Weston and Arcapita acquired the nine logistics facilities in Indianapolis for an undisclosed price.
“This sale represents TIG’s strategy to acquire high-quality, institutional assets in prime locations,” said Richard Yeh, Managing Director at TIG. “During ownership, we were able to stabilize the rent roll and increase the portfolio’s net operating income by successfully executing the majority of lease transactions at rates that exceeded underwriting. That, coupled with the increased demand for infill industrial product, led us to achieve returns that exceeded our investors’ expectations.”
The portfolio was 96% occupied at the time of sale to tenants including Hat World and 3M. The properties, ranging from 54,982 square feet to 311,600 square feet, feature highly functional characteristics required by today’s industrial tenants, including adequate clear heights, abundant trailer storage, ample auto-parking, and high curb appeal.
Seven of the properties are located in Park 100, which provides immediate access to Interstates 465 and 65. The remaining two assets are within the Hunter Creek Business Park, offering convenient access to I-70. Both parks provide proximity to Indianapolis International Airport and FedEx’s second-largest hub in North America.
The national industrial market continues to be fueled by strong consumer demand and a tight supply of warehouse and distribution facilities in desirable locations. Nearly 3 billion square feet of industrial space has been leased since 2010, and the first quarter national vacancy rate was a low 4.8 percent. Asking rents continue to increase, with 41 of the 47 markets tracked by Transwestern experiencing year-over-year growth, driving the overall U.S. average up to $6.28 per square foot.
