Midtown Capital Makes First Chicago-Area Industrial Deal

Midtown Capital Partners LLC, based in Miami, has acquired an industrial building at 2300 Pratt Blvd. in Elk Grove Village, IL. The $17.9-million acquisition through Midtown Capital affiliate Pratt Logistics LLC represents the company’s first industrial deal in the Chicago region.

The property is 100% occupied under a long-term lease by Material Sciences Corporation as one of its mission critical facilities. Midtown Capital managed to close the purchase as expected, despite what it calls “the extremely adverse environment caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, including the dysfunctional commercial mortgage markets and the stay-at-home order in the state of Illinois.”

Adam English, Phil DiGennaro and Chelsea Mandel of STREAM Capital Partners represented the seller, a partnership between DRA Advisors and JERA Partners, in the transaction. Midtown Capital Partners was advised in house.
