HFF announces sale of 258,060-square-foot industrial park in the Raleigh-Durham MSA


CHARLOTTE, NC – November 29, 2017 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the sale of PowerSecure Industrial Campus, a two-building, fully leased, Class A assembly, distribution and R&D facility totaling 258,060 square feet in the Raleigh-Durham MSA.

The HFF team represented the seller, Scannell Properties.  Principal Real Estate Investors purchased the asset. 

Completed in 2017, PowerSecure Industrial Campus comprises a best-in-class 172,500-square-foot assembly and distribution building and an 85,560-square-foot warehousing and R&D facility fully leased on a triple-net-lease basis to PowerSecure Inc., an industry-leading product developer and solutions provider for utility companies and their large commercial, institutional and industrial clients.  The campus features 28- to 30-foot clear heights, 130-foot truck courts with 60-foot concrete aprons, HVAC throughout and attractive glass lines.  Situated on 22.6 acres at 4062 and 4068 Stirrup Creek Drive in Durham, the campus is within the 160-acre Triangle Business Center master-planned business park, which is at the epicenter of a web of major transportation arteries, including the Durham Freeway, U.S. Highway 70 and Interstates 40, 540 and 85.  PowerSecure Industrial Campus is located in the Research Triangle Park/Interstate 40 submarket, and the property provides access to several lifestyle amenities, including Brier Creek, a master-planned, mixed-use community featuring executive housing, an Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course; and 800,000 square feet of open-air retail.

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller consisted of senior managing director Chris Norvell and director Patrick Nally.

“Despite being one of the smallest per capita industrial markets in the country, the Raleigh-Durham region continues to be an extremely high performing market relative to rental rate growth and sales activity,” Norvell said. “Industrial facilities located in the RTP/I-40 submarket are well positioned to capture that momentum, particularly given the development constraints in that area.”
