CenterPoint Properties, an Oak Brook, Ill.-based real estate investment firm, has purchased a 126,000-square-foot industrial property at 13217 S. Figueroa St. in the Harbor Gateway neighborhood for $21 million, or about $167 per square foot.

The single-tenant building features 33 dock-high positions and large private fenced yard area, according CBRE Group Inc., which represented the seller, Goldrich & Kest Inc., a Culver City-based real estate firm.

Renovations are under consideration, including the construction of a two-story, 12,000-square-foot office, CBRE said.

Robert Flores and John Privett, both of CBRE, represented the buyer and seller in the deal.

“This building is going to be attractive to a broad mix of tenants because it’s strategically located with convenient access to the Ports of LA and Long Beach, LAX Airport, Downtown LA and the Westside,” Privett said in a statement. “Additionally, with almost two million people living within a seven-mile radius, it makes this an attractive location for e-commerce fulfillment and last-mile deliveries.”
