“We are excited to acquire another fundamentally sound asset with well-performing tenants in a market that maintains pent-up prospective tenant demand but is in a geography frequently overlooked by many institutional players.

Simply put, this is good dirt. We remain extremely active in the capital markets across our geographic footprint and remain open to additional JVs and direct purchases of middle-market assets typically in the $10-50 million deal size.”
