JLL Closes $117M Sale of Bronx Warehouse to CenterPoint

JLL arranged the $116.5-million sale of a 145,144-square-foot, Class A urban logistics center at 1080 Leggett Ave. in the Bronx to CenterPoint Properties. The JLL team worked on behalf of the seller, Goldman Sachs Asset Management & Blumenfeld Development Group. 

Located in the Bronx’s Hunts Point submarket five minutes from the Hunts Point Food Distribution Center, the property is fully leased to a Fortune 50 company, identified in published reports as Amazon Fresh. The facility sits along the I-278 Bruckner Expressway, just 10 minutes from Manhattan’s Upper East Side with direct access to regional transit, including Interstates 295 and 278.

The JLL Capital Markets team was led by senior managing directors Andrew Scandalios and Rob Kossar, senior director Tyler Peck and managing director Karl Brumback. Executive managing director Leslie Lanne secured the tenant and also assisted in the sale.
