OAK BROOK, IL – CenterPoint Properties is pleased to announce the acquisition of a 778,816 SF distribution center located at 1141 Southwest 12th Avenue in Pompano Beach, Florida.  The property is 100% leased on a long-term basis to one of the largest food wholesalers in the United States. Chris Riley, Guy Ponticiello, Christian Lee, Jose Lobon and Bruce Westwood-Booth of CBRE represented the seller in this transaction.

Located on 51 acres, the facility has access to six million people in South Florida and is located within one mile of I-95, three miles of the Florida Turnpike and within fifteen miles of both Port Everglades and the Fort Lauderdale International Airport. Property features include 120,000 SF of cooler and freezer space, 60 dock high doors, 179 trailer parking positions and extra land for development in the future.
