Zilber Offloads SE Wisconsin Industrial Portfolio

Zilber Property Group has sold a portfolio of 15 industrial facilities in southeast Wisconsin’s Racine and Kenosha counties to a fund managed by Boston-based High Street Realty LLC. The portfolio, which totaled 1.68 million square feet, reportedly traded for about $130 million.

Eleven of the 15 buildings are located in Pleasant Prairie, WI. Two are in Mount Pleasant, one is in Yorkville and one is in Kenosha.

The portfolio’s highest-priced individual asset was a 248,000-square-foot Mount Pleasant warehouse leased to Goodwill Industries. Zilber acquired it in 2017 for $8.6 million and, following a 116,000-square-foot expansion, sold it for $19 million as part of the portfolio.

“This is part of the business cycle for Zilber,” executive vice president John Kersey told BizTimes. “We build, we develop, we buy and we sell.”

Post-sale, Zilber still owns 45 industrial buildings in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana, and more than 175 acres of development-ready sites.
