LOS ANGELES, May 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rexford Industrial Realty, Inc.

The acquisition was funded using cash on hand.

"We leveraged our deep market focus and value-add originations platform to source this attractive industrial property re-development  opportunity within one of infill Southern California's most supply constrained industrial property sub-markets," stated Howard Schwimmer and Michael Frankel, Co-Chief Executive Officers of the Company. "Sandhill Avenue provides an opportunity to deploy Rexford's re-development expertise by converting a former manufacturing site into a state-of-the-art logistics facility designed to serve a broad universe of distribution-oriented tenants within one of Southern California's highest-demand and lowest-vacancy industrial submarkets. Looking ahead, we believe our company is well-positioned with a low-leverage balance sheet and a deep pipeline of accretive internal and external growth opportunities enabling our team to create long-term value for stakeholders."

The Company acquired 1055 Sandhill Avenue, located in Carson within the LA-- South Bay submarket, for $14.5 million, or $57 per land square foot. The property comprises 158,000 square feet of vacant manufacturing buildings on 5.79 acres of land. The Company plans to demolish the existing improvements and construct a new, 32-foot clear 126,013 square foot single-tenant logistics building with 20 dock-high loading positions, ESFR fire sprinklers and an additional adjacent 2.7 acres of excess land for vehicle parking. According to CBRE, the vacancy rate in the 224 million square foot LA -- South Bay submarket was 0.8% at the end of the first quarter 2020.
