Andrew Skydell, Founder of Simi Capital said, “This most recent acquisition further exemplifies our proven business model. Seeing the record high demand and low vacancy rates in the country-wide industrial logistics market, we are consistently looking to acquire ideally located assets such as 80 Jericho Turnpike. We are confident in the prolonged growth of the Long Island market with its robust demand for last mile logistics facilities and a truly tethered supply.”

In a transaction executed in mid-October, also in partnership with Cerberus Capital Management, Simi Capital purchased a New York City outdoor storage facility for $19 million.
