BLT Enterprises has leased three of its industrial assets in Southern California, totaling 94,960 square feet of building space and 11,311 square feet of land. Two of the buildings are located in Irvine, Calif., and one in Santa Monica, Calif. BLT’s transactions come following the firm’s closing of a number of other Southern California industrial leases last year.

“We create environments for our tenants that are uniquely suited to their needs and adapt with them so that they can lease from us long term,” said Bernard Huberman, founder & president of BLT, in a prepared statement.  “We are able to find them new locations within our portfolio of properties, as well as perform our own entitlements and construction process if a tenant requires additional space over time.”
