Two Miami Industrial Parks Fetch $48M In Trade

A portfolio comprising two industrial parks spanning 844,889 square feet across 15 manufacturing, warehouse and distribution buildings, has traded hands.
COFE Properties recently purchased two industrial parks from TA Associates for a total of $48,250,000. The parks, Medley Palmetto Industrial Park, located at 8140 NW 74th Avenue and Hialeah Gardens Industrial Park, located at 9800 NW 80th Avenue, total 864,889 square feet.
Americas Industrial Realty Corporation (AIRC) and CBRE where the brokers involved in the sale transaction.
“The Medley East & Hialeah Gardens portfolios represent some of the most functional institutional quality product within the in-fill submarkets in which they are located,” says Christian Lee, vice chairman with CBRE’s Capital Markets Institutional Group. “Tenant demand for functional well-located product such as this continues to be very strong, as evidenced by Miami’s 4.9% vacancy rate in Q3 2013, the second-lowest in the country.”
The industrial portfolio is strategically located at the intersection of the Palmetto Expressway and Okeechobee Road, at the heart of Miami-Dade County’s industrial infrastructural core. The portfolio is 94% leased to a diversified roster of 55 tenants.
Built between 1963 and 1998, the industrial portfolio features functional design specifications and superior access to major thoroughfares including the Okeechobee Road and the Palmetto Expressway. The industrial property’s front-loaded and cross-dock buildings have 16-foot to 24-foot clear span heights and Florida East Coast rail access. Of the 15 buildings, 14 are multi-tenant and one is a single tenant.
CBRE’s Debt & Equity Finance group also secured $36.5 million in acquisition financing for the buyer. Financing was provided by one of CBRE’s major life insurance company correspondent lenders. The lender originated the 10-year, fixed-rate loan representing a 75% loan-to-value ratio.
Americas Industrial Realty Corporation will continue to lease the parks for COFE Properties.
AIRC and CBRE also lay claim to the largest industrial deal of 2013. Americas Industrial Realty Corporation in conjunction with CBRE represented the seller in the sale of Medley West to Lincoln Property Company for $59.85 million.
