Portland, Ore. (September 8, 2022) – Kidder Mathews Executive Vice President Zach Francis represented Portland-based investment company Allen Properties, LLC in the sale of four assets in the Portland metro area, totaling $80,350,000.
Allen Properties sold the J&D Refrigerated Services building, located at 12300 Southeast Carpenter Drive in Clackamas, for $37,600,000. The purchase of the 181,672-square-foot asset marks one of the largest cold storage investment sales in the Portland metro in 2022. Francis represented both Allen Properties and the buyer, Cre-Provender Clackamas, LLC, a California investor [affiliated with Newport Beach, Calif.-based Provender Partners] who specializes in food-specific properties.
Allen Properties sold another cold storage warehouse in Clackamas, located at 8830 Southeast Herbert Court, for $8,800,000 in an all-cash transaction. Francis, along with Kidder Mathews’ Karla Hansen and Chris Dowhaniuk, represented the buyer and seller. The buyer was Hawaii-based investment company Watumull Property Corporation. This sale, along with the J&D Refrigerated Building, demonstrates enormous investor demand for cold storage warehouses throughout Oregon and the United States. Clackamas County, in particular, is home to numerous other cold storage and food manufacturing companies and is considered the “capital” for food-related buildings in the Portland metro area. Francis and his team are currently marketing 46,350 square feet (divisible) of cold storage space for lease at the Herbert Court Warehouse for the new ownership.
