CHICAGO AND GREENWICH, CONN. — A joint venture (JV) between Chicago-based Brennan Investment Group and Greenwich-based Arch Street Capital Advisors LLC has acquired a portfolio of 11 industrial properties totaling roughly 2.5 million square feet. The portfolio is valued at approximately $100 million.
The properties are located in various markets throughout the Midwest and Southeast, including Chicago, Minneapolis and Grand Rapids, Mich., as well as Jacksonville, Fla., and Birmingham, Ala.
The transaction marks the JV’s sixth acquisition since its formation in 2011. Since that time, it has acquired more than $1 billion in single-tenant, net-leased industrial properties.
“This acquisition represents the breadth and depth of our net-lease platform,” says Michael Brennan, chairman and managing principal of Brennan. “We have the ability to both acquire large portfolios and to aggregate individual long-term, net-lease assets and can invest across the U.S. in both long- and short-duration net-leased properties with an emphasis on mission-critical assets.”
The JV will continue to target investment opportunities involving all types of industrial properties, including assembly plants, research and development facilities and distribution centers. Specifically, it will pursue properties that are located in a top 100 market, have a remaining lease term of at least 10 years and in which the tenant has made a significant investment in the facility.
Since 2010, Brennan Investment Group has acquired over $3 billion in industrial real estate. The company’s current portfolio spans 25 states and encompasses over 33 million square feet.
Arch Street Capital Advisors is a full-service real estate investment and advisory firm formed in 2003. The firm specializes in advising international investors on their U.S. real estate strategies and has advised clients on more than $6 billion of transactions
