Value Creation in Growing Local Economies
50 Barnes is currently leased and features over 600 parking spaces. 15 Sterling features heavy power, 18’-22’ ceilings, six loading docks and one drive-in. Combined, the properties total to over 220,000 rentable square feet. The properties are near I-91 which provides easy access to downtown New Haven and New York City. The accessibility of the addresses makes them prime destinations for regional and local businesses. The properties are in a largely industrial community with proximity to dense retail areas. Recently, Amazon opened its second distribution center in Wallingford which created hundreds of jobs and has significantly boosted the local economy. Both 50 Barnes and 15 Sterling were purchased by Sapphire Holdings.
The Northside Square property is classified as a retail operation and delivers 43,320 square feet and was purchased by Kohanian Holdings. The property is located north of downtown Laurinburg, a community just off I-75 at the South Carolina border. [The national grocery tenant] recently renewed its lease for another five years demonstrating the strength of the location. Limited grocery competition will ensure the continued viability of this center. This purchase presents the buyer with access to consistent traffic and cash flow.
“Located in areas near major interstates, with committed tenants and strong traffic counts, all three properties are great long-term investments for the buyers, who should see continued success with current and future tenants,” said Schultz. “These properties are all positioned to generate consistent cash flow. I am confident that the buyers will see strong returns on these strategic value-add investments,” added Howley.
