LIVERPOOL, N.Y. — A joint venture between New York-based Taconic Capital Advisors and Friedman Real Estate has purchased three industrial buildings totaling 831,000 square feet in Liverpool, a suburb of Syracuse. The properties were acquired as part of a $46 million portfolio sale that included a 407,000-square-foot distribution center in Waterford, Mich. Rite Aid Corp. sold the buildings and will continue to lease back the space at two of the three buildings as distribution centers for its e-commerce platform. The third building, which is the smallest of the trio at 87,000 square feet, remains vacant. As part of the transaction, the joint venture also purchased more than 50 acres for possible future expansion.
