CHARLOTTE, NC – September 7, 2016 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has closed the $29 million sale of a two-building, rail-served industrial distribution complex totaling 511,891 square feet in Charleston, South Carolina.

North Rhett Commerce Center features up to 32’ clear heights, 44 dock-high loading doors, two drive-in doors and 20 rail doors served by an active CSX rail spur that links the property directly to the adjacent Port of Charleston North Container Terminal, the most productive port in the nation and one that can handle post-Panamax vessels.  The two buildings are 81.5 percent leased to Frontier Logistics, JBE Incorporated and Wainwright Industries, Inc.  Situated on 34.12 acres at 5801 North Rhett, North Rhett Commerce Center has direct access to Interstates 526 and 26 and Charleston International Airport.  The complex is located in the Berkeley County submarket.

The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by senior managing directors Chris Norvell and Bruce Strasburg.
