(PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Hackman Capital Partners, LLC, a privately-held, asset-based investment firm, and Oak Pass Capital Management, both headquartered in Los Angeles, confirmed this week the successful acquisition of two, institutional-quality facilities in Livonia, Michigan, a western suburb of Detroit. The industrial properties total a combined 285,306 square feet and were acquired through Auction.com from LNR, the special servicer, at a discount to their 2005 value. The buildings, located at 38220 and 38150 Plymouth Road, are both 100% occupied.
“We are thrilled with the acquisition and excited to establish a presence in Metro Detroit,” said Michael Hackman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hackman Capital Partners. “The properties are first rate with two, stable, long-term tenants—and Livonia, home to several large businesses and employers including Ford, General Motors, Comerica and TRW Automotive, is well positioned for continued growth and increasing demand from distribution users.”
According to Hackman, the Plymouth Road properties are optimal for distribution with easy highway accessibility from I-275 and I-96 and modern, high-cube design and construction. Distribution tenants Helm, a leading provider of branded merchandise, fulfillment and e-commerce turnkey solutions and McKesson, a healthcare services and information technology company, occupy the facilities.
Hackman Capital Partners, through its affiliated entities, currently owns more than 100 facilities throughout the U.S., totaling 18 million square feet.
Charles Toppino, President of Oak Pass Capital, noted that “the Livonia market is in full recovery which was part of the appeal of this acquisition. We have a positive track record of identifying attractive industrial real estate opportunities in the Midwest and joint venturing with Hackman Capital Partners. The investment also has many attractive attributes including two high quality tenants that are ideally located to execute their business plan, and a strong JV asset management team.”
Both Livonia assets will be managed out of Hackman Capital’s Columbus office, which oversees Hackman Capital’s operations in the Midwest, Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The Columbus team currently manages properties totaling approximately 5.4 million square feet in Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia and Michigan, including the 1.6-million-square-foot Midlink Business Park in Kalamazoo.
