Lee & Associates Arizona principals Stein Koss and Tom Louer worked diligently to secure this transaction by negotiating key concessions to bring about a mutually-agreeable outcome. The tenant was procured by the Koss/Louer team while the landlord, DCT Industrial, was represented by Jones Lang LaSalle.

CSI will be moving from the their existing facility at 2001 S. 15th Ave. American Tire who also occupies the property had a need to expand into the entire building. In an effort to accommodate the building ownership, Cobalt Industrial REIT of Dallas, TX, CSI agreed to move out with the proper concessions.
