LOS ANGELES, Nov. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Rexford Industrial Realty, Inc. (the "Company" or "Rexford Industrial") (NYSE: REXR), a real estate investment trust focused on creating value by investing in industrial properties located in Southern California infill markets, today announced the acquisition of an industrial property for $27.6 million. The acquisition was funded using cash on hand and the re-investment of proceeds from a previously announced disposition through a tax-deferred 1031 exchange.

"This acquisition demonstrates Rexford's continued ability to leverage our proprietary originations platform to source attractive off-market investments within Southern California's highly sought-after infill industrial market," stated Howard Schwimmer and Michael Frankel, Co-Chief Executive Officers of the Company. "Berry Way is a fully-leased, low-coverage industrial site comprising three buildings and excess land presenting the future potential to drive cash flow growth through a range of re-leasing or repositioning strategies. With over $800 million of acquisitions completed year-to-date, we are pleased with the quality of our investments, which, together with our go-forward internal and external growth opportunities, position the company well into future periods for continued value creation."

The Company acquired 404-430 Berry Way, located in Brea within the Orange County – North submarket, for $27.6 million, or $53.72 per land square foot. The low-coverage site comprises three industrial buildings with excess paved land. The fully-leased site contains 120,250 square feet on 11.79 acres of land and is well located in a highly supply constrained submarket. According to CBRE, the vacancy rate in the 115 million square foot Orange County – North submarket was 2.3% at the end of the third quarter 2019.
