ASB acquires Denver industrial portfolio for $72 million

Old West Mattress Co. occupies the building at 18300 E. 28th Ave.

ASB Real Estate Investments has acquired a three-building, Class A warehouse portfolio totaling 633,193 square feet in Denver’s Airport submarket for $72 million. The investment was made on behalf of ASB’s Allegiance Real Estate Fund, a $7.5 billion core vehicle. A Blackstone affiliate, Link Properties, was the seller.

Fully leased to Subaru of America, Home Depot, and Old West Mattress Company respectively, the three buildings include 22100 E. 26th Ave. (406,959 sf) in Aurora, 9410 Heinz Way (140,630 sf) in Commerce City and 18300 E. 28th Ave. (85,604 sf) in Aurora.

Aaron Duncan, ASB senior vice president and Western Region head, said, “This extremely attractive, cash-flowing investment further expands ASB’s Class A industrial portfolio and should help further buttress our income-oriented returns over the long term. The surrounding market benefits from dramatic and dynamic residential development as well as from significant infrastructure investment in airport expansion and construction of new interstate express lanes. The prime, last-mile locations will be increasingly attractive to our high-credit tenants and other logistics users as the Denver area continues to grow.”
