Los Angeles, California (July 1, 2021)
Cohen Asset Management, Inc. (the “Company” or “CAM)”, a private real estate investment firm focused on owning and operating industrial and logistics properties in select target markets, today announced the sale of a portfolio of seven multi-tenant industrial buildings comprised of 725,000 square feet located in the infill Northern New Jersey locations of Fairfield and Pine Brook. CAM positioned the 100% leased portfolio for sale after executing a multi-year value-add strategy to improve the properties and stabilize the portfolio with a well-diversified rent roll leased at market rents. This sale is consistent with CAM’s overall investment strategy which seeks opportunities to create additional value through its proven effective active asset management approach while optimizing disposition timing.
Jason Haas, Co-Chief Investment Officer, stated, “We are excited to have closed this sale to an institutional investor after completing a comprehensive value-added investment strategy for the portfolio. The outperformance on these assets reflects the efforts of our entire team and highlights the strong fundamentals in the New Jersey marketplace that our research and investment team identified in targeting the New Jersey market for investment. From purchase to disposition, the investment achieved our goal of providing investors a stable, durable-recurring stream of passive income over the hold period and executing a sale to optimize disposition timing in this favorable capital markets environment for high quality industrial and logistics properties.” Mr. Haas went on to state, “Executing dispositions at premium pricing is indicative of the value-add that CAM brings to its investors.”
