Dalfen America Corp. is an industrial real estate investment manager with properties in key markets throughout the United States and Canada. This is their first entry into the Nevada marketplace.
The 1,250,084 square foot portfolio is part of Lillard Business Center and Vista Industrial Park. The distribution buildings are located within seven miles of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and in close proximity to Interstate 80, the second largest highway in the United States, connecting the West Coast to the East Coast.
"The northern Nevada market is considered a "bargain" when comparing cap rates to neighboring California, where they are as much as 250 basis points lower," said Hoeck. "There is still a considerable amount of investment dollars looking to be placed in commercial real estate and the Reno area is a good alternative investment position," he said.
Dalfen America Corp. has retained Kidder Mathews as the listing brokerage and property manager for this portfolio.
