NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CommercialProperty–H.I.G. Capital (“H.I.G.”), a leading global alternative investment firm with over $41 billion of equity capital under management, is pleased to announce that its affiliate, H.I.G. Realty Partners, has completed the acquisition of a “last mile” industrial portfolio at a significant discount to replacement cost.
The properties are 100% leased, located in large metro areas, and in close proximity to major thoroughfares and airports; several properties have direct railway connectivity, further enhancing their marketability to e-commerce and logistics-focused tenants. The portfolio is poised to provide attractive current cash-on-cash returns, along with significant additional value creation through sub-portfolio sales, re-leasing, and repositioning opportunities.
“The portfolio represents a continuation of our strategy to invest in value-add, strategically located, mission-critical industrial assets,” said David Hirschberg, Co-Head of H.I.G. Realty Partners. “We expect to leverage H.I.G.’s real estate expertise to maximize the inherent value in this geographically diversified portfolio which is characterized by strong tenant demand and positive submarket dynamics.”
