PGIM Real Estate provided financing for properties in five states.

IDI’s Speedway Distribution Center – Building A

GLP Capital Partners has secured a $250 million financing package for a five-property logistics portfolio totaling 3.2 million square feet across five states. Markets include Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Chicago, Memphis, Tenn., and California’s Central Valley.

PGIM Real Estate provided the funding for the portfolio acquired on behalf of GLP Capital Partners IV, the borrower’s $2.3 billion logistics real estate fund focused on North America, which closed in July. At the time, the investment vehicle was the largest discretionary closed-end fund of its kind.

All five properties are fully leased to four different tenants. The portfolio includes Building A of IDI’s Speedway Distribution Center, a 729,157-square-foot industrial asset in Fort Worth, Texas. The recently-acquired property sits on almost 40-acres at 16101 Three Wide Drive. Built in 2014, the distribution center is equipped with an ESFR sprinkler system and features 34-foot clear heights, truck courts ranging between 130 and 185 feet along with 164 dock-high and 4 grade-level loading doors.

All properties are, on average, within a mile of each market’s major thoroughfares. IDI’s Speedway Distribution Center is located alongside State Route 114, less than 3 miles from Interstate 35 West and some 20 miles northwest of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
