Dalfen America Corp. has acquired Alum Creek Business Center, a 303,000-square-foot industrial property located close to Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus, Ohio. With the addition of this asset, the company’s Columbus industrial portfolio adds up to approximately 1.1 million square feet.  

The rapid growth of e-commerce has led to an increasing demand for quality warehouse space and Columbus continues to be one of the nation’s top locations for distribution,” said Sean Dalfen, DAC’s president, in a prepared statement.

Located at 6959 and 6969 Alum Creek Drive, Alum Creek Business Center consists of two buildings completed in 1993 and 1996. The property features 54 dock-high doors, 24- to 26-foot clear ceiling heights, T-8 lighting and a large parking lot.

Distribution centers in the nearby area include facilities for Cardinal Health, Walmart, L Brands, FedEx and Amazon. Dynamic industrial activity has pushed down the vacancy rate in Columbus to a little under 5 percent as of 2017’s third quarter, according to a Colliers International report cited by Dalfen.
