LOS ANGELES, July 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Rexford Industrial Realty, Inc. (the "Company" or "Rexford Industrial") (NYSE: REXR), a real estate investment trust focused on owning and operating industrial properties located in Southern California infill markets, today announced the acquisition of a single-tenant industrial property for $22.5 million. The acquisition was funded using available cash on hand.

"We continue to leverage our proprietary originations platform to uncover attractive off-market opportunities in the highly sought-after infill Southern California industrial markets," stated Howard Schwimmer and Michael Frankel, Co-Chief Executive Officers of the Company. "This recently renovated, 'like-new' warehouse property was acquired with a leaseback to an entrenched occupant serving the growing entertainment and content-related industry centered in Burbank, Hollywood, and West Los Angeles. Our team's deep market knowledge continues to enable Rexford to deliver exceptional internal and external growth creating value for shareholders."

The Company acquired 12154 Montague Street located in Pacoima within the LA – San Fernando Valley submarket through an off-market transaction for $22.5 million, or $183 per square foot.  The 100% leased divisible building contains 122,868 square feet on 4.89 acres of land. The property underwent a full renovation in 2015, including interior and exterior modernization and construction of state-of-the-art creative office space. At the expiration of the below-market lease, the Company intends either to renew the current tenant at a market rent, to re-tenant with another single tenant or to demise into four spaces allowing for further rental growth. According to CBRE, the vacancy rate in the 174 million square foot LA – San Fernando Valley submarket was 1.5% at the end of the first quarter 2018.
