Rexford Pays $40M for Carson, Carlsbad Properties

In one of the tightest industrial real estate markets in the country, Los Angeles-based Rexford Industrial Realty Inc. has snatched up two properties for $40.3 million in cash.

In Carson, Rexford acquired a 55,238-square-foot building on 5.41 acres for $16.1 million. Rexford will continue leasing the property to its current occupant, trucking operator Western Freight Carrier, which has signed a five-year lease.

Rexford also acquired two buildings on 8.28 acres in Carlsbad for $24.2 million. The industrial sites are each newly built and each have space for multiple tenants. Across the two buildings, which cover 114,572 square feet, occupancy currently sits at about 72 percent. Shea Properties Inc. was the developer, owner and manager of the property before the sale.

In the third quarter of 2018, Rexford Industrial reported rental revenue of $54.5 million, an increase of 26 percent over the year prior. With the new acquisitions, that figure is likely to continue rising.
