January 24, 2020

LAS VEGAS, January 24, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced that it has closed the $117.3 million sale of Lear Industrial Center, a four-building, Class A, multi-tenant business park totaling 1.4 million square feet in Reno, Nevada.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Panattoni Development Company. Clarion Partners, LLC purchased the asset.

Lear Industrial Center was developed by the seller between 2005 and 2008 to the highest institutional standards. The state-of-the-art buildings feature 30-foot clear heights, ESFR sprinklers, flexible floorplans, 164 dock-high doors, 32 grade-level doors and ample parking. Situated on 73.66 acres at 6640, 6645, & 6650 Echo Avenue and 12995 Echo Court, the park is within the North Valleys Industrial submarket and less than a mile from Reno-Stead Airport and less than two miles from U.S. Route 395, which along with proximity to Interstates 80 and 580, provides tenants access to one and two-day truck service to Seattle, Phoenix, Denver, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Sacramento and San Francisco. Additionally, Lear Industrial Center is less than 12 miles from Union Pacific Intermodal Hub and approximately 13 miles from Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Mark Detmer and Bo Mills.

“With its location in a market that boasts high-profile corporate neighbors and 6.68% submarket vacancy, Lear Industrial Center offered investors an opportunity to acquire a rare, scalable portfolio of Class A, institutional-quality warehouse and distribution buildings,” Detmer said. The property’s best-in-class features will drive occupancy for years to come.”
