DALLAS, TX – (August 29th, 2023) – Sealy & Company, a fully integrated commercial real estate investment and operating company and recognized leader in the industrial real estate market, announces the acquisition of Distriplex II. Located at 6386 Global Drive in Memphis, the newly constructed Class A distribution center totals 201,500 square feet. The asset is 100% leased and was acquired for an undisclosed amount through an off-market transaction.
Distriplex II is a state-of-the-art facility constructed in 2022 and is located in one of Memphis’s most institutional submarkets. The asset is a rear-load configuration and features 22 dock-high doors, 2 drive-in doors, 126 auto, and 51 trailer parking spaces, as well as a 185’ truck court. The property is in a superior e-commerce location with access to Highway 78 and the Memphis International Airport/FedEx World Hub.
The addition of Distriplex II strengthens Sealy & Company’s footprint in the Memphis market which now totals over 3.2 million SF. This transaction follows the early 2023 addition of 466,475 SF of assets located at 6332 and 6356 Commercial Drive. Memphis is the largest market by SF in Sealy & Company’s 32+ million SF portfolio spread across 29 U.S. markets. Sealy’s continued investment reflects a strategic alignment between the firm’s investment strategy and Memphis’s industrial market fundamentals.
According to CoStar, the Memphis industrial market is experiencing a wave of new supply. This is largely thanks to solid demand drivers, such as a large blue-collar workforce, an ideal location along the Mississippi River close to the mean center of population for the United States, and slow but positive population growth in the metro area. The addition of this asset expands Sealy & Company’s presence in the highly sought-after Memphis industrial market.
“With the latest acquisition of Distriplex II, Sealy & Company continues to reinforce its significant presence and proven success in the Memphis market. This addition further solidifies Memphis’s standing as the largest market in Sealy & Company’s portfolio by square footage, ahead of St. Louis and Dallas. Factors such as the robust industrial fundamentals of Memphis, its strategic location, and vibrant labor pool all contribute to Sealy’s ongoing investment in industrial real estate within the region,” states Jason Gandy, Managing Director – Investment Services for Sealy & Company.
Jason Gandy and Davis Gibbs, Director – Investment Services, led the transaction for Sealy & Company.
