CT Realty has sold four industrial buildings in Southern California. General Atomic Aeronautical Systems—a manufacturer of remotely piloted aircraft systems, radars and electro-optic systems solutions—bought one of the properties, a 339,328-square-foot industrial building, for $44 million. The new owner will occupy approximately 57 percent of the building.

CT Realty bought the asset in 2015 from Cohu, which occupies the remaining 43 percent of the building, for $34 million, while also renovating the property. Located at 12367 Crosthwaite in Poway, Calif., in the Poway Business Park, the building is one of the largest in northeast San Diego County. Kidder Mathews Executive Vice President Mickey Morera and Colliers International Senior Executive Vice President Ted Cuthbert represented both parties in the transaction.
