The total value of the portfolio is approximately $3 billion.

The portfolio is primarily urban infill, light industrial, and bulk logistics assets.

Graydon Bouchillon, Managing Director and Head of U.S. Industrial Sector at Nuveen Real Estate, issued a statement on the deal.

“This pivotal transaction provides an attractive opportunity to further enhance Nuveen Real Estate’s U.S. industrial platform and broaden our logistics holdings across strategic distribution hubs including coastal markets with high barriers to entry,” Bouchillon said.

He further added, “We continue to believe that the industrial sector will outperform as supply remains constrained in certain markets and e-commerce tailwinds remain prevalent. Our 80 million square foot U.S. industrial platform will continue to look for measured, strategic growth opportunities in an effort to provide Nuveen investors with broad diversification and exposure across the logistics landscape.”

Finally, the properties are concentrated in Southern California, Northern New Jersey, Dallas, Chicago, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. markets. All told, the deal includes 29 million square feet of logistics space. Furthermore, the acquisition brings Nuveen total U.S. logistics portfolio up to now approximate $15 billion. This figure expands across both equity and debt investments in the sector.
