The company will use the space within the 1.1 million-square-foot industrial facility for fulfillment and logistics. CBRE represented both the landlord and the tenant.

Built originally as a large-scale grocery distribution center, the facility provides 70 dock-high loading doors and four grade-level doors. The property consists of approximately 300,000 square feet of freezer/cooler space, more than 605,000 square feet of dry warehouse and 192,000 square feet of free-standing warehouse.

Recent Improvements

“This year we have made significant improvements to the property, including increasing the building’s cold-storage capabilities,” Clifford Booth, president & CEO of Westmount, said in a prepared statement.

According to Yardi Matrix calculations, the property is valued at more than $34 million. Westmount acquired the three-building asset in 2012 from Angelo, Gordon & Co. The sale was subject to a four-year term $22.3 million loan, held by Bank of the Ozarks.
