Firm tapped to handle leasing for Class A industrial building
Fort Lauderdale, FL – August 19, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — CBRE arranged the purchase of the former Fort Lauderdale headquarters for GoodRoads, a 68,500-square-foot, Class A, free-standing manufacturing and distribution facility at 3600 NW 54th Street in Fort Lauderdale. KTR Capital Partners (KTR) acquired the property at a price that remains confidential. CBRE represented KTR in the transaction. KTR plans major renovations to the facility and has hired CBRE to rebrand and market the facility for lease.
“This sale represents a growing trend of institutions buying vacant user properties,” said CBRE’s Larry Genet. “KTR acquired a very functional free-standing building that once renovated, will be very well positioned in the market.”
Prospect Park IV features 16,171 square feet of corporate offices and a showroom, 26-foot ceilings, two dock-high doors with pit levelers, four oversized grade-level doors, two van-high doors, 3200 AMPS @ 208 volts 3 phase, a 110-foot secured and fenced truck court and fire sprinklers.
The building is conveniently located only 1.6 miles east of the Commercial Boulevard/Florida Turnpike interchange and only 3.7 miles west of the Commercial Boulevard/I-95 interchange. This location provides quick access to Downtown Fort Lauderdale, Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.
Larry Genet, Harry Tangalakis and Tom O’Loughlin of CBRE’s Broward industrial brokerage team represented the buyer.
