Lee Brokers Off-Market Ind. Deal in Tinley Park

Lee & Associates has closed a $7-million off-market sale transaction for a 84,388-square-foot industrial building located at 8201 W. 183rd Street in Tinley Park, IL.

Principals Terry Grapenthin and Jeff Galante and VP Ryan Earley represented the buyer, 7600 Grant BR LLC.

“After the successful disposition of a previously-owned facility, our client was in a 1031 exchange situation,” said Grapenthin. “They had continued interest in well-located, multi-tenant properties outside of Cook County.

“This property was not on the market, but through an unsolicited offer to purchase, we came to terms and successfully closed to satisfy the exchange and avoid the substantial tax implications,” he continued.

The property was mostly leased at the time of purchase. The Lee & Associates team has been retained by the new owners to complete the balance of leasing.
