The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Dennis Mitchell, Trent Agnew and Louis Castillo. 

“The JLL team saw strong demand for this core/core plus industrial offering due to the ability to acquire critical mass in infill locations across Atlanta, Houston and Central Florida. The portfolio had a unique profile due to its 2.7-year WALT on existing assets, allowing for a short-term mark-to-market opportunity with committed tenancy,” Mitchell said. “Companies of all sizes are competing for locations that provide exceptional connectivity to major logistical thoroughfares. As demand for this product type increases, it continues to drive market occupancy and raises rental rates.”
