Bridgewater, MA On behalf of Clarion Partners, JLL’s capital markets experts completed the sale of 140 Laurel Street, an industrial facility within greater Boston’s Rte. 24 corridor. 47 Brand, a leading lifestyle company, purchased the 465,000 s/f property for $15.6 million.
JLL managing director Frank Petz said, “The 140 Laurel St. offering included one of Boston’s last large blocks of available warehouse, which created a rare value-add opportunity and generated strong interest from the investment community. As a long-time Boston-based company, 47 Brand emerged with a clear desire to own the property and to commit their distribution operations to the area for the long term. The company will benefit from 140 Laurel’s great physical attributes and location only 20 miles from Boston.”
Managing directors Petz and Jessica Hughes, and associate George Gregory led the JLL team on the transaction.
Founded in 1947 and headquartered in nearby Westwood, 47 Brand is a licensed apparel partner with the four professional American sports leagues: MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, as well as over 900 colleges. The company succeeded amidst competition to purchase the warehouse facility because they recognized the value of limited options in Boston’s industrial market.
