Foreign investor acquires Baltimore industrial facility
JLL Capital Markets arranged the sale and acquisition loan for the warehouse
JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of and secured acquisition financing for a fully leased, 313,000-square-foot infill warehouse at 2209 Sulphur Spring Rd. near Interstates 95 and 695 in Baltimore, Maryland.
JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, The O’Donnell Group. Aminim Group purchased the asset. Additionally, working on behalf of the new owner, JLL arranged the acquisition loan.
Located in an Enterprise Zone at the northern end of the Baltimore-Washington Corridor, the property features approximately one acre of fenced storage, heavy power, security, 35 loading docks and the potential for 56 trailer drops. Tenants include Liberty Tire Recycling and Indusco Wire Rope and Fittings. Since 2013, the property received approximately $6.5 million of capital improvements invested into the property, including a new roof, T5 and LED lighting, dock seals, 35,000-pound levers, façade accents and two new bridges to traverse and improve access over a stream on the property along with additional loading positions, asphalt and storefronts.
The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller included Managing Director Jay Wellschlager, Senior Managing Director Bruce Strasburg, Director Craig Childs and Analyst Elizabeth Runge, with local market expertise provided by the building’s leasing team, Dave Dannenfelser and Tyler Boykin. Senior Director Paul Spellman secured the loan on behalf of the new owner.
In 2018, the seller engaged Managing Director Dave Dannenfelser and Vice President Tyler Boykin of JLL Agency Leasing to lease the property, which they purchased in December of 2017 with a pending full building vacancy. Within just 12 months, the team successfully brought the vacant warehouse to full occupancy with an average lease term of more than seven years.
