Prologis Snags Goose Island Warehouse for Reported $100M
In Chicago’s biggest commercial property sale so far this year, Prologis earlier this month paid nearly $100 million for a fully-leased 339,000-square-foot warehouse and office building at 930 W. Evergreen Ave. on Goose Island, Crain’s Chicago Business reported. Cushman & Wakefield brokered the deal.
Crain’s reported that the sale completed a lucrative cash-out for a joint venture of Greenfield Partners and Related Fund Management, which bought the property from candy maker Mars for $73 million in July 2019. It belied the current state of the commercial property sales market, still hampered by COVID-19 and demonstrated the premium investors will pay for well-located industrial.
The JV partners helped boost the value of the Goose Island property by signing up as a long-term anchor tenant, according to Crain’s. They formed e-commerce fulfillment company Quiet Logistics in 2019 and inked a 10-year lease for 173,000 square feet of warehouse and office space.
