Newmark Affiliate Arranges $91.3 Sale of Retail Portfolio in Mountain West
SALT LAKE CITY — Newmark Grubb ACRES, a Utah-based brokerage firm, has arranged the sale of a portfolio of single-tenant retail properties leased to Codale Electric Supply Inc., a Salt Lake City-based distributor of electric, energy and lighting products. The sales price was $91.3 million.
The portfolio includes nine properties, six of which are located in Utah. One of the assets is in Nevada (Elko), and two of the properties are in Wyoming (Rock Springs and Casper). Codale has a total of 13 retail locations throughout the western United States.
According to Codale’s website, its stores range in size from 15,000 square feet to 54,000 square feet, not including the company’s 210,000-square-foot headquarters, which was one of the assets included in the portfolio sale. All totaled, the portfolio spans 476,500 square feet.
Bryce Blanchard of Newmark Grubb ACRES represented the seller, Holt Properties, a real estate company owned and operated by the Holt family, which founded Codale Electric in 1975. Blanchard also procured the buyer, an undisclosed, out-of-state REIT.
Sonepar, a French electronics distribution firm, acquired Codale in 2012.
