Elion Partners Expands Last-Mile Logistics Portfolio with Acquisition in Pompano Beach, FL

This acquisition is a part of a series of acquisitions the firm has planned for its last-mile portfolio aggregation strategy across key logistics markets

Elion Partners, a real estate investment firm, today announced that it has acquired a 93,636-square-foot last-mile industrial distribution asset, formerly a Bennett Auto Supply Distribution Center, located at 3141 SW 10th Street in Pompano Beach, FL.

The $12 million acquisition is a part of a series of acquisitions the firm has planned for its last-mile portfolio aggregation strategy across key logistics markets, including Broward and Miami-Dade County.

“The supply-constrained location of Pompano Beach and its close proximity to rooftops will complement our last-mile portfolio well,” said Shlomo Khoudari, Managing Partner at Elion. “In addition, this asset will benefit our South Florida portfolio by providing immediate operational cost-saving efficiencies.”

The firm plans to continue to pursue an investment strategy focused on first, middle and last-mile logistics real estate, targeting core, urban logistics hubs near large population centers in infill coastal markets. This month, the firm also announced an $83 million acquisition of last-mile industrial distribution assets positioned across the West Coast, located in Seattle, San Francisco and Southern California. Elion’s investment vehicles hold an existing portfolio of last-mile logistics real estate across the U.S.

Earlier this summer, Elion sold a portfolio of 12 last-mile distribution assets representing 700,000 square feet in South Florida. The firm aggregated the portfolio through one-off off-market transactions throughout 2018 and 2019. As a vertically integrated firm, Elion owns and operates logistics assets in closed-end fund structures and permanent capital vehicles.
