Westmount Sells 21-Building Elk Grove Industrial Portfolio

Westmount Realty Capital has sold Elk Grove Village, a portfolio of 21 light industrial buildings spanning 757,557 square feet in the O’Hare submarket. The buyer and sale price were not disclosed. Westmount has owned the portfolio for three years. 
The portfolio is 97% leased to 107 tenants. The buildings were built in between the late 1960s to late 1970s and have approximately 20% average office finish. 

“The multi-tenant properties within this portfolio are difficult and expensive for industrial developers to replicate, especially in a market like Chicago,” said Brian Scruggs, Westmount’s managing director of industrial acquisitions. “The portfolio’s strong tenant profile and continuous high occupancy rate have made this portfolio a strong investment for our firm.” 

Westmount currently owns and manages 58 buildings totaling 5.4 million square feet across the Chicago market.
