Chicago-based CRG has completed the $425.15-million portfolio sale of five new Class A industrial assets, all completed in 2021, to PRP, a Washington, DC-based investment management firm focused on credit net lease investments. The properties, all fully leased, are located in metro Houston; St. Louis; Birmingham, AL; and Greenville-Spartanburg, SC.
Totaling more than 4.52 million square feet, the portfolio sale is the largest multi-property disposition by CRG to date. Four of the buildings were build-to-suits, while the fifth, a 1.4-million-square-foot space in Greenville-Spartanburg, was a speculative development that was designed and built using CRG’s proprietary industrial brand, The Cubes.
“PRP is a leading investor in Class-A tenant assets, and its acquisition of these assets – and the high quality of the tenants leasing them – is a testament to our national strategy and vertically integrated planning-design-construction model that allows us to respond nimbly and quickly to opportunities,” said CRG president Shawn Clark.
