“The Elgin Distribution Center fits squarely within our industrial investment thesis as a well-located, newly constructed property with strong tenant profiles,” said Allan Swaringen, president and chief executive officer. “The Elgin warehouse submarket stands out for its access to a robust labor pool and close proximity to Chicago, along with O’Hare International Airport, which we believe will drive long-term value for these properties.”

The properties are 100 percent leased with a weighted average lease term of approximately 10 years.
