We spoke with IDI?s Lisa Ward, who says the industrial developer will maintain the leasing and management of the portfolio for Industrial Income. Part of the reasoning behind the sell is to help feed IDI?s growth. ?Most of that will be funneled back into new development  of facilities nationwide,? Lisa says. IDI has a pipeline of 9M SF  over the next 24 months, including its 650k SF Riverside Building A and the 550k SF  Mitsubishi facilities in Atlanta.
