Gladstone Commercial Corporation Acquires $3.1 Million Industrial Property in Columbus, OH Metro Area

May 6, 2019

MCLEAN, Va., May 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gladstone Commercial Corporation (NASDAQ: GOOD) (“Gladstone Commercial”) announced today that it completed the acquisition of a 54,430 square foot industrial building in the Columbus submarket of Delaware, OH for $3.1 million. The initial capitalization rate for the acquisition is 7.46%, and the average (GAAP) capitalization rate is 7.93%.

The property is 100% occupied by Inno-Pak, a supplier of both stock and custom packaging for the grocery and food service industry. Inno-Pak has occupied the property since its construction as a build-to-suit for the firm in 2005. The Property is a highly functional single load configuration featuring concrete tilt-up construction and 32’ clear height. The 7.18 acre site is zoned for addition density, providing the opportunity to expand the facility by approximately 50,000 square feet. Simultaneous with closing, Inno-Pak executed a seven year, absolute-NNN lease. The acquisition of the industrial property is consistent with Gladstone Commercial’s strategy of acquiring high-quality industrial assets in its target growth markets.

“This transaction expands our presence in the target market of Columbus, OH, and marks our second quality industrial acquisition in the Delaware sub-market,” said Matt Tucker, Gladstone Commercial’s Senior Managing Director of the Northeast/Midwest Region. “The property is well located in one of the fastest growing counties in Ohio, is mission critical for the tenant, and should provide our investors with long term steady returns.”

“This transaction advances our strategy of increasing our allocation of high quality industrial buildings and we are excited about continuing to grow our portfolio in Columbus, one of our target markets,” said Bob Cutlip, President of Gladstone Commercial.
