MEXICO CITY, Feb. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- FIBRA Prologis (BMV: FIBRAPL14), a leading owner and operator of Class-A industrial real estate in Mexico, today announced the completion of two asset recycling transactions. In the Mexico City submarket of Toluca, the company acquired three properties totaling 258,912 square feet of industrial space for a total investment of US$18.6 million, including closing and leasing costs. The properties were acquired from a third-party and are proximate to Toluca International Airport and Prologis Park Toluca I. This acquisition complements the company's existing portfolio in Toluca, which is fully occupied and has seen strong demand. While currently vacant, these three properties are expected to be leased this year.
Separately, the company sold three buildings in Guadalajara totaling 493,400 square feet for $25.1 million to a leading institutional investor and developer. The properties are located in the El Salto submarket and are currently 69% occupied.
"Through our asset recycling program, we were able to strengthen our portfolio in Toluca while decreasing our exposure to Guadalajara, which has seen greater supply over the last year," said Luis Gutierrez, CEO, Prologis Property Mexico. "Our team of real estate professionals did a great job with these transactions; creating value for our certificate holders."
