MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (NASDAQ: GOOD) (“Gladstone Commercial”) announced today that it completed the acquisition of a 26,050 square foot industrial building in Moorestown, NJ (Philadelphia MSA) for $2.7 million. The initial capitalization rate for the acquisition was 7.8%, with an average capitalization rate of 8.8%.
The property is 100% occupied by Shields Business Solutions, Inc. (“Shields”), a provider of cash logistics and carrier services, as well as the sale and maintenance of ATMs and other technologies used in the banking industry. The property, which has been occupied by Shields since its construction in 1991, houses the majority of the company’s business operations and serves as its corporate headquarters. Simultaneous with closing, Gladstone Commercial and Shields executed a 15 year, absolute-NNN lease. The acquisition of the industrial property is consistent with Gladstone Commercial’s strategy of acquiring high-quality assets in growth regions with credit-worthy tenants.
“This acquisition adds to our quality industrial holdings and expands our presence in the Philadelphia area, one of our target markets,” said Matt Tucker, Senior Managing Director of the Northeast/Midwest Region. “Burlington County is one of Philadelphia’s strongest submarkets, with exceptional infrastructure access that will drive long-term demand. The property is mission critical for the tenant, can be expanded by approximately 25,000 square feet, and should provide our investors with long term steady returns.”
“This transaction continues to promote our strategy of increasing our allocation to industrial buildings while growing our portfolio in key target markets,” said Bob Cutlip, President of Gladstone Commercial.
