Los Angeles, CA and Boston, MA, May 4, 2021 – Staley Point Capital (“Staley Point”), a value-add investor focused on industrial properties in Southern California, and Bain Capital Real Estate, the real estate investing business of Bain Capital, today announced the off-market acquisition of a 100,000 square-foot industrial property in Brea, California for approximately $21 million.
“Given the supply barriers to entry and the strong demographics, we hope that this is the first of several transactions in Orange County,” said Eric Staley, Managing Director of Staley Point. “We were able to distinguish ourselves as a buyer by delivering closing certainty under an expedited timeline.”
The property is located at 331 Cliffwood, in the North Orange County submarket with convenient access to the rest of the county via the 57 freeway. The asset has 22’ clear height, 4 dock-high positions and is 100% leased with five years of term.
The transaction marks the fourth deal completed by Staley Point and Bain Capital Real Estate. It follows the recently announced purchase of a 58,000 square-foot industrial property in Santa Fe Springs , as well as the acquisition of Freeway Point, an 83,000 square-foot industrial property, and a land site in the San Fernando Valley.
“This acquisition reflects both the continued progress of our partnership and focus on investing locally in industrial assets with strong underlying growth fundamentals,” said Andrew Terris, a Managing Director at Bain Capital Real Estate. “We identified North County as an attractive and high-performing submarket and look forward to capitalizing on additional opportunities in the region that align with our thematic and value-added investment approach.”
Staley Point Capital and Bain Capital Real Estate have a joint venture that is undertaking repositioning and redevelopment projects of existing infill industrial properties near dense population centers, primarily in Southern California.
Greenberg Traurig, LLP served as legal counsel to Staley Point Capital for the transaction. Pacific Partners represented both the buyer and seller and JLL Capital Markets will arrange the loan financing.
