Built in 2004, the warehouse features 18-foot ceiling heights, 5,000 square feet of office space with a conference room, 12 loading doors, a truck well and security system.
The property in Pines Industrial Park was purchased for an undisclosed client as part of 1031 tax-deferred exchange, according to David Bone. He declined to name the client or offer additional details.
The purchase entity, The Parking Co., mortgaged the property to Insignia Bank for $883,800.
