RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 5, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of South 40 Distribution Center, a 502,495-square-foot, last-mile, multi-tenant distribution facility in Raleigh, North Carolina.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, LM Real Estate Partners. Pennybacker Capital acquired the asset. 

South 40 Distribution Center is in a last-mile, infill location at 2201 and 2126 S. Wilmington St. one mile south of downtown Raleigh. This strategic position is also adjacent to Interstate 40, which is the primary interstate artery in the market, and allows tenants easy access to the entire booming Raleigh-Durham MSA, which is adding about 43 new residents per day and is projected to be the second fastest-growing large city in the U.S. by 2030. 

“We are thrilled to be entering the Raleigh industrial market,” said Pennybacker Capital’s Edvin Beasley, managing director and portfolio manager of Pennybacker’s Value Funds. “With immediate proximity to the broader MSA and long-term optionality of the investment, we believe the property fills a growing need for infill industrial space and is well-positioned to participate in the near and long-term growth of Raleigh and the surrounding markets.”

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Managing Director Patrick Nally, Senior Managing Director Pete Pittroff, Director Dave Andrews and Analyst Michael Scarnato.
