GREENWICH, CONN. — Brennan Investment Group, a U.S.-based real estate firm, and a client of Arch Street Capital Advisors, a Greenwich, Conn.-based real estate investment advisory firm, have formed a fifth joint venture to acquire, own and manage a substantial portfolio of industrial properties throughout the United States. The venture will focus on acquiring individual industrial assets in major markets in the United States that are critical facilities to tenants and leased on a long-term basis. In conjunction with the formation of the venture, Goldman Sachs provided the venture with a financing line of credit facility to enhance the venture’s efficiency in closing both portfolio and individual asset purchases. The new venture has already purchased nearly 900,000 square feet of industrial real estate in Dallas; Charlotte, N.C.; and Green Bay, Wis.
Brennan and Arch Street have collectively acquired 77 properties comprising more than 12 million square feet in the single-tenant, net lease sector during the last five years. The companies seek net leased industrial investments meeting the following criteria: location in the top 100 U.S. markets, remaining lease term of at least 10 years, non-investment grade credits, and significant facility investment by the tenant. They are interested in all industrial facility types, including manufacturing, assembly, R&D and distribution.
