Sealy Adds Warehouse in KC

Sealy & Company acquired a 513,751-square-foot distribution center leased to in Kansas City, KS. The off-market acquisition from BH Partners was made on behalf of Sealy Industrial Partners L.P. for an undisclosed amount.

“We continue to invest in infill properties at a discount to replacement cost, as our investment strategy continues to prove to be rewarding,” said Scott Sealy Jr., the Dallas-based company’s CIO. “Last-mile fulfillment centers like this property are the backbone of modern supply chains and are a favorable asset class.”

Located at 5300 Kansas Ave., the property enables to bring two-day shipping to 99% of its U.S. customers.

“The ability to be so centrally located in the U.S. is ideal for a retailer like Overstock, and we are looking forward to our relationship with the tenant,” Sealy added. He worked with Newmark Grubb Zimmer’s Mark Long to acquire the property.

Connect Chicago Fall 2019 will take place Oct. 29 in Chicago. For more information, or to register, click here.
