SAN ANTONIO—Industry professionals say infill cold storage assets will become more valuable in light of limited supply and high build costs. Fitting that description are two facilities totaling more than 500,000 square feet that Provender Partners recently sold in San Antonio and St. Louis for nearly $64 million.
