Sale Represents Joint Venture’s Fourth Successful Exit
LOS ANGELES and BOSTON, Jan. 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Staley Point Capital (“Staley Point”), a value-add investor focused on industrial properties in Southern California, and Bain Capital Real Estate (“Bain Capital”), the real estate investing business of Bain Capital, today announced the sale of 18689 Arenth Avenue, a 91,000 square-foot industrial asset in the City of Industry, California, for $38.4 million, or $421 per square foot.
The Staley Point and Bain Capital programmatic joint venture originally acquired the asset in January 2022 for $22.0 million, or $241 per square foot. Arenth is a newly renovated, 24-foot clear asset with eight dock-high positions and a functional concrete truck court. The asset is located in the City of Industry within the San Gabriel Valley, which benefits from its central location at the intersection of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. The asset also provides direct access to Highway 60, which connects the affluent West Los Angeles consumer markets, two nearby intermodal yards, and distribution centers within the Inland Empire.
“The Arenth sale demonstrates the significant continued demand for high-quality, warehouses in infill locations and is further validation of our approach to the industrial real estate market,” said Eric Staley, Managing Partner of Staley Point. “Along with Bain Capital, we remain firmly committed to this value-add strategy and continue to seek out similar assets in supply constrained markets across the West Coast.”
The San Gabriel Valley’s demand for industrial infill properties is sustained by the historically low vacancy rate of 1.5% and three consecutive months of growing import volumes at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach after the ratification of a new six-year West Coast Ports Labor Agreement. The greater Los Angeles market benefits from the consumption strength of 21 million local residents and the incurable supply-demand imbalance with only 1.0% of new supply under construction and a 1.8% vacancy rate as of 3Q’23 per research from CBRE Group.
“We look forward to building on our successful partnership with Staley Point as we continue to capitalize on attractive investment opportunities in the region that align with the joint venture’s thematic infill industrial strategy,” said Andrew Terris, a Partner at Bain Capital Real Estate.
Staley Point and Bain Capital have completed four exits from the firms’ curated portfolio of high-quality infill industrial properties across Southern California, Seattle, and the Bay Area, with cumulative sales over the last 18 months totaling $177 million in proceeds. Most recently, the joint venture sold two industrial real estate assets, 331 Cliffwood Park Street and 10907 Painter Avenue, for a combined $54.0 million, or $339 per square foot.
Latham & Watkins LLP served as legal counsel to Staley Point Capital and JLL acted as the financial advisor for the transaction.
