PORTLAND, August 3, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets has announced today that it has closed the sale of Marine Drive Distribution Center, a 590,770-square-foot, four-building distribution center in Portland, Oregon.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Clarion Partners, in the sale to LBA Logistics. Additionally, JLL has been retained by the buyer to handle leasing at the property.

Marine Drive Distribution Center is comprised of one single tenant and three multitenant institutionally managed distribution warehouses. The state-of-the-art buildings feature ESFR sprinklers, 24’-26’ clear heights, 114 dock-high, 12 grade-level and 28 rail-served doors, along with ample parking. The buildings are NNN leased to seven tenants.

The property is situated on approximately 27.30 acres in the Rivergate submarket at 6308-6310 and 6204-6210 N Marine Dr. and 7409-7433 and 7507-7517 N Leadbetter Rd. Marine Drive Distribution Center is less than two miles from the Port of Portland Terminal 6 and less than four miles from Interstate 5 providing regional access throughout the West Coast, including San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle. In addition, the property is located seven miles from Portland International Airport and 18 miles from Troutdale Airport.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Mark Detmer and Managing Directors Buzz Ellis and Ryan Sitov. The JLL Leasing team is led by Managing Director Tyler Sheils.

“JLL is pleased Clarion Partners trusted us with the disposition of their institutionally managed and maintained best-in-class mid-bay Marine Drive Distribution Center.” According to Ellis, “mid-bay product fills a critical need in our nations supply chain for tenants that operate out of spaces ranging from 30,000 to 300,000 square feet, and demand for these assets are robust across the West Coast, with institutional quality multitenant assets such as Marine Drive Distribution Center particularly sought after by the investor community. We congratulate LBA on their acquisition of Marine Drive Distribution Center, and all parties are pleased with the outcome of the transaction.”
