Newmark is pleased to announce that the firm arranged the successful sale-leaseback of a Dallas area industrial property on behalf of the buyer, Brennan Investment Group. The acquisition of the 476,341-square-foot facility is valued in excess of $21 million and includes a long-term leaseback to the occupying tenant.
Brennan Investment Group, a Chicago-based private real estate investment firm, acquires, develops and operates industrial properties in select major metropolitan markets throughout the United States. Since its formation in 2010, the firm has amassed a portfolio of over 24 million square feet of industrial property in 22 states. With a desire to expand its Texas portfolio, Newmark’s Senior Managing Director Corey Chase assisted Brennan Investment Group with its selection and negotiations. Chase ultimately helped Brennan Investment Group secure the property due to location and favorable lease terms, including a new long-term agreement with the tenant. Jim Hazard and Brad Struck of E Smith Realty Partners (ESRP) represented the private owner in the transaction.
“We are pleased to have assisted Brennan Investment Group in expanding its Texas portfolio,” said Chase. “This asset is a great addition to Brennan’s portfolio given the optimal location of the facility and the strength of the long-term tenant.”
Situated on 21 acres, the Dallas area, Class A, 476,341-square-foot industrial property includes 38,760 square feet of office space and features 16 dock doors, T-5 lighting throughout, ESFR sprinkler system and ample parking. The facility is ideally located within minutes of I-35E and I-20.
