JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $7.75 million sale of and arranged $11.8 million in financing for a 141,000-square-foot industrial distribution and warehouse facility in the Phoenix-area community of Tempe, Arizona.

JLL represented the buyer, ACB Properties, LLC, which then engaged JLL to secure the long-term, fixed-rate financing for the acquisition of the property and planned capital improvements with a national bank.

The building is at 2130 South Industrial Park Ave. in the central part of Tempe. With its easy access to Interstate 10, the flex facility location provides local access to the entire Phoenix MSA, regional access from Los Angeles/San Diego to El Paso and international access into Mexico.

The buyer plans to improve the property with a new roof, cooling system and upgraded office space and intends to use the property for its business, Arizona Custom Blends, which involves blending, packaging and encapsulation of nutraceuticals in an NSF-certified cGMP powder manufacturing facility. 

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Advisory team representing the buyer was led by Managing Director Brian Ackerman, and Director Carl Beardsley led the JLL Debt Placement efforts. Justin Sieczkowski and Paul Sieczkowski from Colliers International in Arizona represented the seller.

“The buyer was attracted to this facility because of its central location with easy access to the freeway system,” Ackerman said. “The buyer’s business has grown exponentially over the last three years, and this acquisition and property improvement plan will allow them to continue to expand.”
