Rexford Industrial Acquires Four Industrial Properties for $251M

Rexford Industrial Realty Inc. recently acquired four industrial properties comprising 837,500 square feet of improvements for an aggregate purchase price of $250.5 million. The acquisitions were funded using cash on hand and proceeds from forward equity settlements.

“These investments demonstrate Rexford’s unique access to supply-constrained infill Southern California, the nation’s most sought-after industrial market,” said Howard Schwimmer and Michael Frankel, co-chief executive officers of Rexford. “With over $1 billion of industrial property acquisitions completed within infill Southern California year-to-date and $375 million of additional investments under contract or accepted offer, the company is well-positioned with a low-leverage, fortress-like balance sheet to create long-term shareholder value.”

  • 1801 E. St. Andrew Place in Santa Ana within the Orange County Airport submarket was acquired for $105.3 million or $115 per square foot (land). The 100 percent leased site comprises a 370,375-square-foot office/warehousing building on 21.3 acres. Upon expiration of in-place leases, the company intends to redevelop the site into a logistics facility.
