Prologis sells Phoenix warehouse for $24.25M

Colliers International in Greater Phoenix recently completed the sale of a 486,241-square-foot warehouse in Phoenix for $24.25 million, or $49.87 per square foot.

Exeter Property Group, headquartered in suburban Philadelphia, bought the property, at 5555 W. Lower Buckeye Rd., from Prologis Inc., a San Francisco-based REIT.

Executive Vice Presidents Don MacWilliam and Payson MacWilliam with Colliers International represented the buyer and seller.

Exeter Property Group and Prologis are real estate investment organizations for which one shared area of specialization is the acquisition, development, leasing and management of industrial properties.

Prologis built the cross-dock distribution warehouse in 2013. The building sits on a 27.73-acre lot in Park Riverside 2, part of a 150-acre industrial park setting in a designated Foreign Trade Zone magnet site.

The LEED-certified building has a 1,893-square-foot office, 118 dock-high doors, and four drive-in doors. The warehouse is in the favorable Riverside Tax District and has quick access to the I-10 and future Loop 202. Corporate neighbors include Amazon, Home Depot, Frito Lay, Federal Express, Kraft, DHL and Marshalls.

“This is the largest industrial building Prologis has constructed in Phoenix and the property is ideal for distribution-oriented tenants,” said Don MacWilliam, adding that Exeter will lease the warehouse and the MacWilliam brothers will retain the leasing assignment.

Exeter has acquired other properties in southwest Phoenix, including another warehouse from Prologis, at 2225 S. 43rd Ave., purchased in early 2014.

“This was an excellent opportunity for Exeter to establish a larger presence in the Phoenix market with a quality distribution facility,” said Don MacWilliam, noting, “The timing and price was also right for Prologis to complete the transaction with Exeter.

Broadway Ind Portfolio

Jones Lang LaSalle Closes $22 Million Portfolio Sale

Capital Markets experts in the Phoenix office of Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) have completed a $22.1 million sale of Broadway Industrial Portfolio, totalling three Class A buildings and 308,038 square feet in Tempe, Ariz. The deal is JLL’s second investment sale in the area this quarter, accentuating the strength and draw of the submarket’s commercial real estate inventory.

Jones Lang LaSalle Managing Directors Mark Detmer and Bo Mills represented the property seller, San Francisco-based Prologis, Inc. The buyer is DCT Industrial Trust.

Broadway Industrial Portfolio encompasses an 110,000-square-foot building at 1005 W. Alameda Dr; a 96,437-square-foot building at 2910 S. Hardy Drive; and a 101,601-square-foot building at 2925 S. Roosevelt St., all in Tempe. Each building is a Class A, institutional quality asset offering manufacturing, distribution and office space. The properties are also all located directly off of Interstate 10 and fully occupied, with no near-term rollover, to tenants including United Stationers Supply Co., ACI Plastics, Inc., Misty Mate, Inc. and Triumph Group, Inc.

“These buildings are exceptional in that they combine outstanding functionality and full occupancy with a true Class A image in an infill location,” said Detmer. “This includes access—within minutes—to many of the key amenities that a high-end industrial user might need: an extensive freeway network, international airport, deep labor pool and host of retail opportunities.”

In addition, the project is located within the Southeast Valley, an area that over the last decade has remained one of the nation’s fastest growing regions for industrial and technology companies, and according to JLL is well situated for long-term stability.

Jones Lang LaSalle Executive Vice Presidents Pat Harlan and Steve Sayre, and Associate Kyle Westfall, will serve as the exclusive leasing brokers for the property buyer on behalf of DCT Industrial Trust.

This is the second investment sale closed by JLL in the Tempe submarket this quarter. In July, the firm completed a $27.1 million sale of Broadway 101 Office Park, a deal that was driven by high market demand and fundamentals reminiscent of pre-recession transactions.

Prologis Sells I-10 West Business Center for $3.9M

Prologis, Inc. — owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate — sold the I-10 West Business Center in Phoenix for $3.925M to TRPF III/TCC – I-10 West (Trammel Crow and Thackeray Partners, Dallas).

“I-10 West Business Center is ideally positioned to outperform the current market,” Buckley said. “Located in the largest industrial submarket in the Valley, the property had the ideal combination of in-place income, with 100 percent occupancy and upside potential for additional income as the market strengthens and rents and value improves.”

Built in 1986, I-10 West Business Center is a multi-tenant industrial property. It was fully leased to seven tenants at the time of sale. The occupants include USALCO, Ltd., Smalley & Company, 8 Net, Inc., Clayton Glass and Batesville Logistics.
