CBRE’s Tom Lynch and Mark Redlingshafer represented the Houston-based seller, Investment & Development Ventures, LLC.

“There is an abundance of capital available for investors seeking to acquire well located assets with solid tenants, and we expect the strong appetite for Houston industrial product to continue”, said CBRE broker Mark Redlingshafer.
