Cushman & Wakefield Wins Assignment to Manage 11 Industrial Properties in Southern California
Class A Properties Total 2.6 Million Sq. Ft. - Primarily Single-Tenant Buildings.
- Peoria, IL (1888PressRelease) June 16, 2012 - EW Capital Management, a leading manager of real estate assets and securities for institutional and private investors, has awarded Cushman & Wakefield of California, Inc. the property management assignment for 11 industrial properties in Southern California. The properties, which total 2.6 million square feet, are owned by several of AEW's commingled investment funds. Dee Eckman and Mary Marx of Cushman & Wakefield's Corporate Occupier and Investor Services (CIS) group will handle the assignment.
"These are high-end, class A buildings," said Dee Eckman, CIS director and account manager. "They are primarily single-tenant buildings, although some have two to four tenants. All the assets are stabilized with only two vacancies in the entire portfolio."
"We are pleased to be able to continue and expand our ongoing relationship with AEW," said Marx, CIS senior managing director.
The buildings are located in multiple Southern California submarkets including the Los Angeles International Airport submarket, Fullerton, Santa Fe Springs, Eastvale in the Inland Empire region, Chatsworth in the Los Angeles North submarket, Chino and Paramount.
"Fundamentals in the Southern California industrial market continue to strengthen," said Dave Hess, agency broker for the portfolio and senior director of Cushman & Wakefield. "With vacancies falling and rents improving, users are having difficulty finding space in some size ranges.
"And at the same time, both investors and developers are struggling to find opportunities in the Southern California industrial markets," Hess said.

In 2011, in the US alone, this group completed more than 6,100 industrial real estate transactions - totaling 225 million square feet - with an aggregate value in excess of $6.5 billion.
