MRA Acquires South Windsor Industrial Facility for $50M

Metropolitan Realty Associates (MRA) has purchased 456 Sullivan Avenue, a 304,249-square-foot industrial property in South Windsor, CONN. The sales price was $50 million.

At the time of sale, the property was double net-leased to FedEx, with the global shipping chain using the space as a distribution center for small-package ground deliveries throughout New England. The property is located within the I-91 industrial corridor and is located in between New York and Boston.

Matt Berres and Samer Khalil of Newmark’s Net Lease Capital Markets team brokered the transaction in partnership with Newmark Tri-State Capital Markets’ Kevin Welsh, Brian Shulz and Art Ross. In addition, Newmark’s Dustin Stolly and Jordan Roeschlaub arranged a $32 million acquisition loan through lender Bank of America on behalf of the buyer. Clarion Partners also provided equity for the deal through Clarion Partners Real Estate Income Fund.
