rare feature in the submarket. The campus is currently 100% leased to seven tenants in industries including technical education and distribution. Both industrial parks have an average tenant tenure of over a decade. “Faropoint’s relationship- centric strategy, reliable fund- ing and use of proprietary data and technology is what allows our investment teams to transact with accuracy and certainty when vetting and underwriting potential deals,” said Adir Levitas , CEO and founder of Faropoint. “The urban infill industrial product we specialize in has gained popularity in recent years due to the sector’s incredibly strong fundamentals, and we look forward to continuing to pursue similar opportunities in supply-constrained markets across the country in the years to come.” Faropoint entered the NNJ market with its first transac - tion in the winter of 2021. Since then, the firm has deployed roughly $300 million in capital across the region. Faropoint’s

• Allendale Shallow-Bay Industrial Park, located at 1-3, 5-7 Pearl Court and 59 Rte. 17 in Allendale, spans 35.1 acres and includes seven industrial buildings totaling 370,064 s/f. • Mahwah Industrial Center at 16, 70-82, 91-97 McKee Dr. in Mahwah is a three-building portfolio totaling 400,000 s/f across 33 acres. Both parks offer direct ac- cess to major throughways including Rte. 17, I-278, I-87, Rte. 208/4, Rte. 202, and the Garden State Pkwy.. Both sites also provide access to the NYC metropolitan area and the New York/New Jersey ports. “North Bergen County is one of the tightest industrial submarkets in the state and continues to demonstrate posi- tive market rent growth, leas- ing velocity and compelling fundamentals that make it a vital area for investment,” said Orry Michael , Faro- point director of acquisitions in Greater NY. “Faropoint has and continues to recognize a compelling opportunity within the light industrial and shal- low bay arena, distinguishing

itself from the conventional larger box industrial develop- ments prevalent in the NYC metro and Northern New Jer- sey (NNJ) industrial markets. These high-quality buildings offer much-needed flexibility, divisibility, and functionality desired by a broad spectrum of infill and last-mile users seen in the market today.” • Allendale Shallow-Bay Industrial Park, built in the 1970s-80s, is core-plus real estate with unique shallow bay design that offers divisibility and functionality sought by a diverse array of infill and last- touch users in the NNJ area. Its accommodating design and shallow bay product allows for greater leasing flexibility, re - sulting in higher rental rates. The park is currently 100% leased to 18 tenants spanning a variety of industries. • Mahwah Industrial Center was built in the 1960s with strong lease terms in place that provide steady cash flow at an attractive basis. The center offers an abundance of parking – 1,463 spaces total – an extremely desirable and

success in the highly competi- tive Northern New Jersey in- dustrial market is a testament to the firm’s demonstrated ex - ecution capabilities amid recent economic disruptions. “The fact that both facilities are 100% leased to reputable, credit-worthy tenants of- fers an opportunity to gener- ate sustainable long-term returns, aligning perfectly with our investment strategy which emphasizes growth and stability at an irreplaceable basis,” said Itay Ron , North- east Market Office at Faro - point. “These industrial parks offer a unique combination of flexible warehouse space in a central location that serves a range of high value tenants in the Northern New Jersey region. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with the owners and operators who serve this region in the future.” Cushman & Wake- field’s Gary Gabriel, Kyle Schmidt, Ryan Larkin and Seth Zuidema facilitated the transaction, representing the sellers.
