LOUIS – SEDCO Capital (“SEDCO”), a leading Saudi Arabian Asset Manager, today announced that it has purchased in May 2019 a FedEx Ground-leased distribution facility in the Niles submarket of Chicago, Illinois. The property was purchased via a separate account managed by ElmTree Funds, LLC (“ElmTree”), a leading real estate private equity firm.

Sherif Selim, Managing Director at SEDCO, commented, “We are very pleased with the outcome of this transaction and are excited about the long-term prospects for this asset. We like the Northeast Cook County, one of the most stable and established logistics submarkets in the Chicago area with excellent connectivity to Chicago CBD and the airport.”

The 306,448 SF facility is located at 5959 West Howard Street.  Originally constructed in 2015 as a build-to-suit for FedEx Ground, the net-leased property supports distribution in the surrounding markets and features 101 dock high doors on a 39.81 acre site.

“The high quality nature of this asset together with its ideal location and remaining lease term with a blue-chip tenant made it a very attractive investment opportunity,” said Jim Koman, CEO of ElmTree Funds.

The property, which has approximately 11.0 years remaining on its lease with FedEx, is expected to perform well over the long-term due to strong market fundamentals as well as its ideal location within the Chicago MSA.
