Industrial has become the darling of commercial real estate, particularly on the West Coast and in Southern California. Within the popular asset class, multi-tenant industrial properties have become a popular choice for investors. BKM Capital Partners is among the most active multi-tenant industrial buyers in the Western US. Last year alone, the firm’s multi-tenant industrial acquisitions totaled $545 million and 3.5 million square feet. This year, it has purchased a two-property portfolio in San Diego totaling 99,187 square feet. The firm is bullish on the niche industrial class as both defensive play and a way to reduce operating costs.

“We like to think of our product type as apartments for the industrial user,” Brett Turner, managing director of acquisitions for BKM Capital Partners, tells GlobeSt.com. “With its low turnover costs and short-term leases, BKM has the ability to raise rents to market quickly earning a high cash yield. Its also a defensive play, as no one industry accounts for more than 12% of our rent roll leading to minimal credit loss, even through an economic slow down.”
