HFF announces $38M sale of 7-property industrial portfolio in the Chicago MSA

CHICAGO, IL – October 29, 2018 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the $38 million sale of a seven-property industrial portfolio totaling 447,059 square feet in the Chicago MSA.

The HFF team marketed the portfolio for the seller, Globe Corporation.  Green Door Capital, a Chicago-based private equity sponsor, purchased the assets in part via a partnership with Citimark, Inc., a real estate investment company based in Indianapolis.

Located in the second largest industrial market in the country, the portfolio properties are housed in four separate industrial submarkets.  Three of the properties are located in the Northwest Cook Industrial submarket: 5120 Prairie Stone Parkway in Hoffman Estates and 1124 Tower Road and 1555-1559 Brasswood Road in Schaumburg; two are located in the I-80 Industrial corridor: 3225 Corporate Drive and 3301-3301 Corporate Drive in Joliet; and one each are located in the North DuPage submarket: 454 Scott Drive in Bloomingdale; and the I-88 Industrial corridor: 3720 Prairie Lake Court in Aurora.  At the time of sale, the portfolio was 93 percent leased to 10 different tenants.

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller included senior directors Kurt Sarbaugh and Robin Stolberg, managing director Stephen Skok and analyst Sam Berry.

“We are pleased with the execution provided by the HFF team,” said Bert A. Getz, Jr., co-CEO of Globe Corporation.  “Some of the assets were developed by Globe, and almost all of them owned for over a decade, reflecting Globe’s long-term investment thesis.  The sale of the seven properties reflects a broader strategy within Globe Corporation to partner with and develop larger projects in our core markets.”

“The portfolio is comprised of very well-maintained and well-occupied assets that we are pleased to have acquired,” Shannon Westberg, principal of Green Door Capital added.
