Stos Partners Acquires 228,912-SF Industrial Asset for $28.9 Million in Temecula, CA

Industrial building at 42301 Zevo Drive in Temecula, CA is occupied by publicly-traded, global healthcare leader that will manufacture quick COVID-19 tests onsite at the facility.

TEMECULA, CA – Stos Partners, a privately held commercial real estate investment and management firm, has acquired a 228,912 square-foot industrial asset in Temecula, California for $28.9 million in an off-market transaction.

CJ Stos

“This was an opportunity to acquire a well-located, off-market, institutional-quality asset in a submarket that is positioned for long-term growth,” says CJ Stos, Principal of Stos Partners.

 “Temecula has undergone rapid expansion over the last several years as companies continue to relocate from other Southern California markets, driving strong demand to the property.”

Stos explains that the firm’s ability to quickly identify and source this deal in the current market landscape speaks to the strength of its deep relationships, as well as its strong track record and reputation in the industry.

“We are one of the most active buyers of industrial product in Southern California,” he says. “We are extremely well-capitalized, have a deep understanding of the local market and can move quickly to get deals done.”

   Alisa Lovas
The property is currently 100-percent occupied. A global, publicly-traded healthcare leader occupies the majority of the building and plans to utilize the facility as part of its distribution network for quick COVID-19 tests.

“This is a strategic addition to our growing portfolio with a strong in-place credit tenant,” says Jason Richards, a Partner at Stos Partners.

“The healthcare industry is one that is rarely impacted by market fluctuations as there is always demand for healthcare services and products, especially now.

Jason Richards
"An existing long-term lease strategically positions the asset for stable in-place cash flow and upside potential over the next several years.”
            The property is located at 42301 Zevo Drive in Temecula, California.

Scott Stewart of Lee & Associates represented Stos Partners as the buyer in the acquisition. Alisa Lovas of Lee & Associates represented the seller, a private investor.

Stonehill Secures Financing Facility for $100 Million in Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Lending for All Asset Classes

Anne Hill

ATLANTA, GA, May 4, 2020—Officials of Stonehill today announced the company has secured financing for $100 million of Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) lending for all commercial real estate asset classes. 

The additional, privately-funded capacity already is being used to retroactively fund multiple development projects impacted financially by the on-going coronavirus pandemic.

Mat Crosswy

“These are trying times for virtually everyone, and unfortunately, financing is one of the hardest hit corners of the economy,” said Anne Hill, president, Stonehill PACE, a division of Stonehill. 

“However, we have the financial capacity and team of experts to help owners and developers navigate these turbulent waters together. 

"We are confident that this crisis, too, shall pass, and we are here to provide a financial lifeline to tide people over during the interim.”

Mat Crosswy, principal, Stonehill, added: “With the economy currently on hold and sources of financing, like the Paycheck Protection Program, drying up almost as quickly as they come online, PACE financing is a clear alternative for everyone from developers looking to restart temporarily stalled projects to owners seeking additional operating expense capital for already completed assignments.

“Currently, we are fielding increased requests as developers contend with everything from mezzanine financing walking away from deals to the need for rescue capital.

“As direct lenders with the ability to close funding quickly and on schedule despite COVID-19 disruptions, we are doing deals right now for all asset classes.

 “To date, we’ve provided funding for multi-family and hotel projects midway through the construction process and expect to process millions of dollars more in short order.”
