The principals of Advantage Properties and Cove Property Management purchased the portfolio from a joint-venture between Feldman Bergin Properties and Fortified Property Group for $9.95 million.
“We are pleased with the Oakland Ridge acquisition as these properties are expected to generate substantial cashflow over time. The properties are well-positioned in the Columbia market and will benefit from strong demand for the asset class in the coming years,“ commented Alex Gross, President of Advantage Properties.
The Oakland Ridge Portfolio totals 84,514 square feet on 6.78 acres. At 100-percent leased, the portfolio provides strong in-place cashflow with value-add potential through rising rents. The portfolio is also buoyed by the future Howard County Courthouse development, a $140 million development project just a quarter-mile away.
Executive Managing Director Cris Abramson, Director Nicholas Signor and Associate Ben McCarty of NKF’s Maryland Capital Markets team facilitated the sale. The sale marks the third disposition arranged by the NKF team in the Oakland Ridge Industrial Park over the last 12 months.
“The Oakland Ridge Industrial Park continues to prove its merits, as another new investor enters the market,” said Abramson. “Located at the convergence of MD-29, MD-100 and Route 108, the Oakland Ridge Portfolio benefits from tremendous access and location at the midpoint between Washington, DC and Baltimore.”
