EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (July 1, 2022) – Leading commercial real estate firm EverWest Real Estate Investors has added again to its New Jersey industrial portfolio with a $37.1 million warehouse acquisition. Negotiated as a sale-leaseback, the 117,000-square-foot building is fully occupied by Diamond Chemical, one of the nation’s largest privately owned cleaning and sanitizing product companies.
“As a sale-leaseback, this acquisition provides an attractive income-producing warehouse investment and advances EverWest’s plan to continue to grow its footprint in this highly coveted U.S. industrial submarket,” said EverWest’s Senior Portfolio Manager for the company’s $1.5B flagship open-end, diversified, core equity fund, John Maurer. “Our firm is a best markets/best submarkets investor and this Meadowlands location offers unmatched access to the ports and the tri-state population, with a lack of supply and historic demand that is further amplifying value.”
Located at Union Avenue and Dubois Street, the Meadowlands building sits within a submarket boasting a sub-2 percent vacancy rate and a consistent, 15 percent year-over-year rent growth. The building is leased by Diamond Chemical, who under the sale-leaseback terms will continue to fully occupy the property as a company headquarters, laboratory and manufacturing center.
Features of the building include 26’ clear height, 10 dock-high and one drive-in doors, up to 215’ building depths, 30’ x 40’ column spacing, heavy power, ample parking and 16,000 square feet of well-maintained office space.
The property adds to EverWest’s existing presence in the Meadowlands, which was established last December with a $66 million, three-building industrial portfolio acquisition in Moonachie. EverWest currently owns more than 2.7 million square feet of industrial space across New York/New Jersey.
The company continues to seek industrial acquisition opportunities in the Meadowlands and the greater New York/New Jersey market.
