DALLAS, Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas,TX based real estate investment firm Covington Group, Inc. (Covington) is proud to announce the acquisition of a two-building, 650,000 SF industrial facility in Antioch, California.
The location of this asset creates a unique offering in a tightening market, as logistics groups, warehouse users, and light manufacturing companies have been increasingly drawn to the Antioch area because of the lower facility costs, a reliable supply of labor, and a lower cost of living as compared to San Francisco and Oakland.
The acquisition allows Covington the opportunity to purchase a near-stabilized asset at a discount to replacement cost. Covington intends to update the property utilizing an improvement program that it has successfully deployed at similar properties across the country. Once reintroduced to the market, the facility will be ideally positioned to attract value-oriented tenants in need of access to the urbanized core of the San Francisco Bay area.
The complex is currently 86% leased with a diverse tenant mix and significant remaining term. While the specifics of the acquisition remain undisclosed, Ken Sheer, CEO of Covington Group, Inc., stated, "To find an asset of this size and quality in the East Bay market of California is becoming extremely difficult. We think this acquisition provides a unique opportunity to invest in a tightening market with good fundamentals at a favorable basis."
