Elion Adds to Northeast Portfolio with Last-Mile Property Near Newark Airport
Private equity firm Elion Partners acquired a 207,000-square-foot last-mile industrial asset located at 1000 Jefferson Ave. in Elizabeth, NJ, two miles from the Newark Liberty International Airport.
The $29.7-million acquisition expands Elion’s last-mile portfolio and is a part of a series of acquisitions the firm has planned for its portfolio aggregation strategy across key coastal logistics markets.
“The New Jersey industrial market dynamics support our investment strategy of sourcing in supply constrained locations with strong demographic demand drivers,” said James Lambert, senior managing director of industrial investments at Elion. “We look forward to continuing the expansion of Elion’s logistics portfolio across the Northeast.”
Kassin Sabbagh Realty’s Bunny Escava and Isaac Setton represented both Miami-based Elion and the sellers, Seyon Group/Wheelock Street Capital. Built in 1948, 1000 Jefferson Ave. was renovated in 2019.
