St. Louis – Transwestern Investment Group (TIG®) announces the sale of 22 Gateway Commerce Center Drive, a 155,700-square-foot industrial building in Edwardsville, Illinois, on behalf of its discretionary investment fund, TSP Value and Income Fund II. The property was 57% leased at the time of sale to New York/New Jersey-based Moxie Equities.

“The disposition of this well-located asset allowed TIG to maximize pricing by appealing to buyers interested in industrial value-add opportunities,” said Ryan Grable, Vice President at TIG. “Moxie Equities was able to acquire one of the few shallow-bay warehouses of its kind in St. Louis’ Metro East submarket below replacement cost.”

Built in 2007, the property is located within Gateway Commerce Center, a premier institutional distribution park that offers convenient access to four modes of transportation: road, rail, water and air. Among its four existing tenants, the weighted average lease term is 4.4 years, and the weighted average in-place tenure is 7.5 years.

St. Louis is an increasingly important e-commerce market experiencing an industrial vacancy rate below the national average, positive net absorption, year-over-year rent growth and risk-adjusted returns. The acquisition of 22 Gateway Commerce Center Drive enhances Moxie Equities’ growing value-add portfolio.

“Continued rent growth and historically attractive debt markets positioned 22 Gateway as a timely, alternative investment during a period where core, bulk yields continue to compress,” added Grable.

JLL’s Sean Devaney and Ed Halaburt represented TIG in the transaction.
