Company’s Northern California industrial portfolio increases with 665,775-square-foot purchase
Antioch, CA (September 11, 2017) – Westcore Properties has acquired the 665,775-square-foot, two-building Antioch Distribution Center, located at 2200 to 2300 and 2110 Wilbur Street in Antioch, California, for $32.4 million.
Westcore purchased the manufacturing/distribution project from the Covington Group, based in Dallas, Texas. Covington Group was represented by Steve Hermann, Scott Bertrand and Brooks Pedder of Cushman & Wakefieldin the transaction. The buyer represented itself.
“We were attracted to the investment’s basis at $49 per square foot and the solid cashflow yield based upon substantially below-market rents,” said Peter Mette, director of acquisitions at Westcore Properties.
By acquiring Antioch Distribution Center, Westcore expands its industrial property holdings in one of its core areas of focus: Northern California’s East Bay and Central Valley. Over the last year, Westcore also acquired three industrial properties in Stockton and one in Tracy.
“The project seems a natural addition to Westcore’s portfolio, and they stand to benefit from the continued health of the East Bay industrial market and the quality rent roll of the project,” said Hermann.
