LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15, 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 $13.3 million. The acquisition was funded using cash-on-hand.

"Our extensive research driven originations efforts leveraging decades of deep regional knowledge continue to generate attractive off-market opportunities in the most sought-after industrial market in the country," stated Howard Schwimmer and Michael Frankel, Co-Chief Executive Officers of the Company. "Carmenita Road is an underutilized, well-located property in a highly supply-constrained submarket with favorable value creation potential. We remain focused on executing our value-driven business model investing in and adding value to industrial property throughout infill Southern California. We believe our pipeline of potential investment opportunities will enable us to continue to deliver exceptional internal and external growth and to create long-term value for our shareholders."

The Company acquired 16121 Carmenita Road, located in Cerritos within the LA – Mid-Counties submarket for $13.3 million, or $123 per square foot. The 108,500 square foot building on 4.67 acres is currently 89% occupied by a single tenant on a short-term lease at a below-market rental rate. The property is divisible, featuring two-street access and two separate entries and office components, 20' clear height and secured yards. Upon lease rollover, the Company intends to demise the structure into two units and implement cosmetic and functional improvements to increase cash flow. According to CBRE, the vacancy rate in the 112 million square foot LA – Mid-Counties submarket was 1.6% at the end of the second quarter 2018.
