JV of Taconic Capital, Friedman Real Estate Acquires Rite Aid Industrial Portfolio

A joint venture of New York-based Taconic Capital Advisors and Farmington Hills, MI-based Friedman Real Estate has acquired a 1.23-million square-foot industrial portfolio for $46 million. The four-property portfolio, in upstate Liverpool, NY and Waterford, MI, was purchased from Rite Aid Corporation as a structured sale-leaseback. 

The portfolio includes 744,000 square feet across two distribution centers in Liverpool; a 407,000-square-foot distribution center in Waterford; and an 87,000-square-foot vacant industrial building in Liverpool. The JV also purchased 50-plus acres for future expansion and development. 

“The deep demand for suitable logistics solutions in both the New York and Michigan regions presented a rare and powerful investment opportunity,” said Taconic’s James Jordan. “This acquisition marks Taconic’s first industrial investment as part of its new fund.” 

Added Friedman Real Estate’s Jared Friedman, “We are confident about the future growth prospects in the logistics sector and the potential for development and redevelopment within this portfolio.”
