An affiliate of Endurance Real Estate Group, and PCCP, is pleased to announce the disposition of the Southern New Jersey Light Industrial Portfolio, a five building, 342,098 SF warehouse/distribution portfolio located in Delran and Swedesboro, New Jersey (“Portfolio”). The CBRE team of Michael Hines, Brad Ruppel, Joe Hill, Lauren Dawicki, Dan McGovern and Charlotte Sands brokered the sale to an undisclosed global private equity real estate firm.
“We are excited to announce the successful sale of our 5-building portfolio in Delran and Swedesboro. I think this transaction is a testament to the dedication and collaboration of our team, particularly in light of the challenging circumstances surrounding the acquisition in April 2020, at the onset of the global pandemic. We believe this sale reaffirms our investment philosophy of buying well located functional light industrial across the Mid-Atlantic,” stated Benjamin Cohen, President of Endurance.
The buildings were constructed in the 1970’s and 1980’s and feature Class B warehouse/distribution specifications including 22’ average clear ceiling heights, wet sprinkler systems and ample loading capacity with full dock packages. The portfolio is situated in the Burlington County and Pureland submarkets of the Philadelphia MSA industrial market, offering users immediate proximity to I-295 and the New Jersey Turnpike. The portfolio was 100% leased at closing. The Portfolio was selected by The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to participate in the Community Solar Pilot Program, enabling Endurance to provide clean, renewable power to 147 homes, 51% of which are low to moderate-income households. This initiative contributes to eliminating 563 tons of carbon emissions annually, equivalent to removing 124 cars from the road or planting 699 acres of trees, further underscoring our commitment to sustainable development and community enrichment.
“Within three weeks of acquiring the 81% leased portfolio, we executed a full building lease for 601 Delran. This enabled us to focus on the balance of the leased portfolio as 70% of the existing tenants were scheduled to roll within the first three years of our hold period,” stated Albert J. Corr, Senior Vice President/Principal of Endurance. “We ended up completing twenty-one lease transactions during our ownership period, which was a combination of new deals, expansions, relocations and renewals,” added Corr.
