Investment Property in West Lakeland Offered Full Occupancy Lease Income and Prime Location in Fast-Growing Market

LAKELAND, FL, September 10, 2020 – SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler Real Estate reported the recent sale of a large multitenant industrial investment property for $7,050,000. Listed and sold by Augie Schmidt, the Century Boulevard Industrial Park consists of approximately 124,500 square feet of well-maintained steel warehousing space and is fully leased with 38 tenants providing income to the buyer.

Located in West Lakeland, one of the fastest-growing industrial markets in the country, this property is centrally located in Florida’s I-4 corridor just north of the Lakeland Linder International Airport. The location provides easy access to excellent road systems such as I-4, the Polk Parkway and SR 60. With more than 20 million people within a five-hour drive, West Lakeland is an attractive market for industrial users.

“Augie is one of our rising young talents,” said Gary Ralston, CCIM, SIOR, a managing director at the brokerage. “He does his homework and is thoroughly dedicated to creating the best outcomes for our clients.”

The multitenant industrial market is a strong asset class due to the growth of the economy and the diverse tenant base these assets provide. This property offered a mixture of local, regional and national tenants. Maintaining full occupancy in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic and with very few tenants asking for rent relief, this property sold within 2% of the asking price.
