  • 11234 Rush Street, South El Monte, located in the LA – San Gabriel Valley submarket, for $12.5 million or $61 per land square foot through an off-market transaction. The Company intends to redevelop the vacant 4.7-acre land site into a 102,000 square foot Class A industrial building, designed to accommodate up to four tenants. The investment is projected to generate a 6.4% unlevered stabilized cash yield on total investment. According to CBRE, the vacancy rate in the 161 million square foot LA – San Gabriel Valley submarket was 1.5% at the end of the third quarter 2023.

In December, the Company disposed of:
