Rocky Point Distribution Center Acquired by Mississippi-Based EastGroup Properties
Oceanside CA— Cushman & Wakefield has announced the firm has brokered the sale of Rocky Point Distribution Center, a brand new 226,691-square-foot Class A, multi-tenant industrial facility in Oceanside (San Diego), California. The buyer was EastGroup Properties headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi. The seller was Black Creek Group headquartered in Denver, Colorado. The property sold for an undisclosed price.
Bryce Aberg, Jeffrey Cole, Jeff Chiate, Mike Adey and Zach Harman with Cushman & Wakefield’s San Diego and Orange County offices represented the buyer in the off-market transaction.
“We maintain a positive outlook on San Diego’s future as a leading and growing industrial market, along with the region’s strong demographics, continued overall economic growth and an incredible environment that all make it so very attractive,” said Ryan Collins, Senior Vice President of EastGroup Properties and based in the firm’s Los Angeles office. “Rocky Point Distribution Center delivered a high quality, new construction facility and is an ideal addition to EastGroup’s existing San Diego industrial portfolio. We look forward to servicing the existing tenants of the building and welcoming the new. We also thank the Cushman & Wakefield team for their efforts in this transaction.”
Bryce Aberg, SIOR Executive Managing Director, said, “In addition to its physical characteristics, the project is positioned in a strong market and surrounded by many global-leading corporate neighbors. The North County location also provides great logistics accessibility throughout the Southern California region.”
Aberg added, “North County’s industrial composition has greatly evolved, particularly through a strong wave of new construction projects, which Rocky Point is certainly a part of. Additionally, Oceanside has been a market leader for industrial growth, in both North County and the entire San Diego region which has, through the fourth quarter, also continued its growth trend in 2019.”
Comprising two buildings located at 1291 & 1322 Rocky Point Dr. and situated on 14.35 acres in San Diego’s desired North County, the Rocky Point Distribution Center completed construction in June 2019. The buildings include a 109,163-sf building (1322) and a fully leased 117,528-sf building (1291). The property was approximately 52% leased overall at time of sale, to a strong industrial tenant mix that includes Wayfair Logistics. The two-building project is part of a larger, prestigious group of five buildings originally known as the Pacific Coast Collection.
