December 7, 2021 — Chicago



JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX) with $5.5 billion in portfolio assets, today announced the acquisition of Friendship Distribution Center, a newly constructed, four-building industrial portfolio totaling nearly 650,000 square feet. The Class A properties are located in the Atlanta suburb of Buford, Georgia, home to the premier Northeast Atlanta industrial submarket. The purchase price was $95 million.

“Friendship Distribution Center’s location in Atlanta’s Northeast submarket, high quality new construction and proximity to irreplaceable transportation infrastructure makes this an excellent portfolio fit for us as we continue to execute on our strategy of increasing our allocation to core industrial assets,” said Allan Swaringen, JLL Income Property Trust President and CEO. “Given this property’s strong tenant profile and exceptional location, this acquisition aligns well with our overall strategic objectives.”

JLL Income Property Trust’s aggregate industrial allocation is now over $1.6 billion of industrial holdings in 54 properties across 13 key markets, representing the second largest property type allocation in the portfolio.

Friendship Distribution Center is in an “A” location, with immediate proximity to Interstate 985, the major highway in the Northeast Atlanta submarket. Its strategic location provides access to the entire Eastern seaboard within a one to two-day drive.

Friendship Distribution Center is 96 percent leased to five tenants, with a weighted average lease term of approximately six years. According to LaSalle Research & Strategy, Atlanta is the fourth largest industrial market in the U.S. with more than 660 million square feet of space. The market set an absorption record in the second quarter of 2021 of 8.6 million square feet, bringing vacancy down to just 5 percent. The Northeast submarket specifically saw 2.1 million square feet of net absorption in the second quarter, the highest of any submarket in the Atlanta metro area, accounting for 24 percent of total absorption.
