The pair of last mile assets were sold to separate buyers. Canal Crossing was acquired by LaSalle Investment Management, and Riverside @ 51st was acquired by Link Logistics. The properties were both sold by the joint venture of a privately held national real estate company and a global investment management firm for prices undisclosed.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Will Strong, Kirk Kuller, Michael Matchett, and Molly Hunt of the firm’s National Industrial Advisory Group brokered the transactions. Cushman & Wakefield’s Mike Haenel, Andy Markham, Phil Haenel, and Foster Bundy provided leasing advisory.

“The portfolio consists of two institutional quality last mile buildings occupying core infill locations with proximity to demand drivers and customer bases. The properties benefit from immediate access to major transportation corridors, offering connectivity to multiple major markets within a single day,” said Senior Associate Molly Hunt. “These transactions provided a win-win-win outcome for all parties. The seller was rewarded after fully leasing and stewarding these quality industrial properties for many years, while the buyers have each acquired assets with attractive investment fundamentals, opportunity and anticipated future success.”

“Although there has been some recent adjusting in the industrial sector, we continue to see good investor demand in Phoenix particularly for quality logistics assets with freeway access,” said Vice Chair Phil Haenel.
