Denver firm snaps up Greenwood property for $15.7 million

A Denver-based firm has purchased a 450,000-square-foot distribution center in Greenwood for $15.75 million, in another sign of the improved health of the Indianapolis area’s industrial market.

Industrial Income Trust purchased the 13-year-old property at 700 Commerce Parkway from Cohen Asset Management Inc., a real estate firm based in Beverly Hills, Calif. The sale closed on June 28, according to IIT.

The distribution center sits on 23 acres and is 100-percent leased. Its two tenants are Celadon Group Inc. and Genco Marketplace Inc.

The property sparked a lot of bids from the investment community, said Jason Haas, chief operating office for Cohen Asset Management.

“The Indianapolis market has one of the lowest vacancy rates in the United States, which has sparked a lot of institutional interest in this Midwest market,” Haas said in a prepared release.

Several recent deals point to healthy demand for Indianapolis-area industrial space. For example, Opus Development Corp., a Minnesota-based real estate firm, is starting development of two industrial buildings in Plainfield totaling a massive 925,000 square feet.

IBJ reported Monday that California-based Transpacific Development Co. recently purchased a 1.1 million-square-foot distribution building in the AmeriPlex at Indianapolis business park.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. If the building sold at the same price per square foot as the Greenwood distribution center, the transaction would have been in the neighborhood of $38.5 million.

  • Is that all Greenwood has for development?
    I cannot believe that with the location and infrastructure of Greenwood, the only thing they can get is another warehouse deal? What is going on in Greenwood? This makes no sense.

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
