PHILADELPHIA, November 7, 2019 – JLL announced today that it has closed the $8.3 million sale of and arranged $5.1 million in acquisition financing for Bunzl Distribution Center, a fully leased, 152,000-square-foot industrial warehouse and distribution center in suburban Buffalo, New York.
JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Foxfield Industrial. A private investor purchased the asset. Additionally, working on behalf of the new owner, JLL placed the long-term, fixed-rate acquisition loan with a life insurance company. JLL will service the loan.
Bunzl Distribution Center is fully leased to Bunzl Midatlantic LLC, a division of Bunzl USA Holdings LLC, a products supplier, which has operated at the property since 2006. The light industrial facility features 25-foot clear heights, 27 front-loading dock doors, deep trailer court, low office finish and 117 parking spaces. Situated on 8.38 acres at 3366 Walden Avenue in Depew, the property is in Buffalo’s East Industrial submarket. As part of the Buffalo Niagara Region, Bunzl Distribution Center is in the second busiest logistical hub of the 328 inland ports throughout the United States and features ready access to multimodal transportation, including Interstate 90 and the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, which is less than five miles away, as well as the internationally critical Port of Buffalo and Class I rail system.
The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Director Steve Forte along with Senior Managing Director Jose Cruz and Director Tyler Peck.
The JLL Capital Markets debt placement team representing the borrower included Director Michael Pagniucci, who also led a team in 2017 in securing acquisition financing for the seller to purchase the asset.
