DALLAS, TX – HFF announced today that it has closed the sale of a 14-building, 1.4 million-square-foot industrial portfolio in Dallas, Texas on behalf of Cobalt Capital Partners, L.P., advisor to Cobalt Industrial REIT.  The portfolio was 96 percent leased to 28 quality tenants with an average remaining lease term of six years.  The buildings were purchased between 2003 and 2007 and remained well-leased during Cobalt’s ownership.

“This portfolio of assets was well-leased to a group of financially strong tenants, which made it attractive to market the buildings for sale,” said Lewis D. Friedland, Cobalt’s managing partner.  “Our asset management and property management teams did a great job of creating value through leasing activity and tenant retention, which maximized the value for our investors.”

HFF’s Randy Baird, Jud Clements and Robby Rieke exclusively represented Cobalt in the transaction.
