IOS sector gaining popularity
The IOS sector has become more and more popular for investors in the last 12 months. In January, industry leader Alterra IOS purchased a 17-property IOS portfolio totaling 350,000 square feet spread across 55 acres in 15 U.S. markets. This deal brought the firm’s portfolio to more than 200 properties in more than 30 states.
In April 2023, Centerbridge Partners and Dalfen Industrial formed a joint venture with plans to invest in IOS assets that provide storage space for vehicle parking, containers, trailers, construction materials and machinery. The partnership’s inaugural purchase was a property in Oakland, Calif.
