According to a news release, the seller, Boston-based TA Associates Realty, was represented in the transaction by CBRE Institutional Properties through a Minneapolis team led by Steven Buss, Ryan Watts and Tom Holtz.

Located at 3703 Kennebec Drive, the 155,050-square-foot warehouse, built in 1994, is currently 100 percent occupied by CITI-Cargo and Storage Co. The facility features an ESFR sprinkler system, a 26-foot clear ceiling height and efficient T-5 motion sensor lighting.
