Gladstone Commercial Announces $8 million Industrial Acquisition in Carrollton, GA
MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gladstone Commercial Corporation (Nasdaq: GOOD) (“Gladstone Commercial”) announced today that it completed the acquisition of a 117,000 square foot industrial building in Carrollton, Georgia on December 17, 2019, for $8 million. The initial capitalization rate for the acquisition was 6.6%, with an average capitalization rate of 7.4%.
The property, acquired in a sale/leaseback transaction, is 100% leased to Superior Recreation Products and guaranteed by PlayCore with a twelve year lease term. Superior Recreation Products utilizes the property to assemble and distribute its industry leading recreation and shade products. The property was newly constructed in 2019. The acquisition of the industrial property is consistent with Gladstone Commercial’s growth strategy of acquiring high-quality assets in growth regions with credit-worthy tenants.
“The acquisition of the PlayCore facility continues our strategic expansion into our target markets. The facility serves as a mission-critical component of the tenant’s business and is well located near Atlanta, along I-20. The investment is a great addition to our portfolio, improving the weighted average lease term and lowering the average property age within the portfolio,” said Buzz Cooper, Senior Managing Director for Gladstone Commercial.
Bob Cutlip, President of Gladstone Commercial, agreed, “This transaction promotes our strategy of increasing our allocation to industrial buildings over the next few years and we are excited to add to the portfolio’s weighted average lease term with high quality real estate occupied by a credit-worthy tenant.”
