Closed! 80,000 sq ft freezer warehouse sold for $13,250,000 or about $165 psf. The property is located at 650 NE 185th Street in Miami, Florida. The seller, Best Freezer Holding, was represented by Edward Redlich, SIOR, CCIM along with the ComReal Miami Industrial Team and Michael Weihl with Sirius Business Advisors. The buyer, Ivy Realty, was represented by Larry Genet with CBRE.
Upon closing, a long term lease transaction was negotiated with a single tenant, True Grade Foods, which now occupies 100% of the building. Some of their business is related to the cruise line industry. Shortly after the property was placed under contract the outbreak of the China virus occurred. The buyer, seller and tenant began to re-question the transaction. However, the brokers were able to provide up-to-date date information on current market conditions as well as keep their respective clients committed to the deal. Redlich has coined the phrase “delayed deals are better than dead deals”.
The property is located just off I95 and is equidistant from PortMiami and Port Everglades. It is a class B building in a class B neighborhood. The freezer systems give the building the higher value. Click here for an Aerial Drone Video. >>>
