In the first quarter of 2017, 26801 Fargo Road in Bedford Heights sold for $7,636,651, or $44.13/SF, toSTAG Industrial Holdings, LLC. Our team represented the sellers, a group of local Cleveland investors.
Fully-leased to two tenants, this 173,052-square-foot building originally functioned as a Sears distribution center.
This space is evidence of a robust industrial investment climate, even in secondary markets such as Northeast Ohio. Recently, NKF Cleveland's 4Q16 Industrial Market Report indicated an industrial market vacancy of 6.8%, having dipped below 7% for the first time. So with vacancy now hovering around a generation low, this price is still far below the building's replacement value. In a rising market, this price may seem high today, but could prove to be a wise investment in the not-too-distant future.
