Buchanan Partners & Elion Partners purchases 700,000 s/f Northern VA industrial portfolio
Gaithersburg, MD — Buchanan Partners has teamed with Miami-based real estate investment firm Elion Partners to acquire a 700,000 s/f industrial portfolio in suburban Washington, DC for $81.15 million. The portfolio comprises 14 buildings just off Rte. 28 in the northern Virginia submarkets of Westfields, Chantilly, and Dulles. The seller was a joint venture of Ares Capital Corporation and Adler Group. “With rising raw land prices, a strengthening submarket, and accelerating residential demand, we set out to find high-quality buildings that could be positioned as best-in-class industrial space for tenants serving this rapidly evolving area,” said Colin Dove, senior project manager at Buchanan Partners.” Added Buchanan Partners principal Brian Benninghoff: “Class A industrial buildings like these provide many tenants more useful options than traditional office buildings or retail centers, at a better price.’ The new ownership plans to make capital improvements, including landscaping and amenities, while continuing to lease and manage the properties. “This asset class aligns with our investment strategy of acquiring supply-constrained properties at or below replacement costs,” said Juan DeAngulo, managing principal, Elion Partners. “With sound operating fundamentals, we are excited to embark on this strategic joint venture with Buchanan Partners and look forward to continuing to grow our investments in this region.” The newly acquired 14-building portfolio is spread across three different office parks along the Rte. 28 corridor: 3680-3863 Centerview Road in Dulles Business Park, 14420-14434 Albemarle Point Place in Westfields North; and 14280-14290 Sullyfield Circle in Sullyfield Business Park. n
