“Class-B industrial, especially portfolios of scale, continue to generate a tremendous amount of interest due to the lack of competitive supply, pricing in relation to replacement cost and upward pressure on rental rates,” HFF Senior Director Trent Angew said. 

The portfolio comprises the 206K SF Astro Business Park at 8825-9087 Knight Road; two buildings totaling 225K SF at 5990-6018 Griggs Road; the 298K SF McCarty Business Park at 245-309 McCarty St.; and four buildings totaling 206K SF at 8710-8798 Westpark Drive. The portfolio is 95% leased to 57 tenants. HFF’s investment team was led by Agnew and Rusty Tamlyn while its debt placement team was led by Brian Carlton and Cameron Cureton.
