An affiliate of Campanelli Companies has purchased the Polaroid Americas Logistics Facility here. Before the instant imaging company’s building was even finished, it was on the block and the ink was drying on the deal.

Sun Life Assurance Co. of Canada is providing the loan; Spectrum Financial Corp. serves as the company’s mortgage loan correspondent. The site is located on 31 acres with a 336,000-sf warehouse and distribution facility.

The Waltham site put on the block consists of four buildings totaling 536,000 sf of space on 56 acres the company purchased in the late 1960s. At the time the sale was announced, a company spokesperson adamantly told the sale did not reflect financial difficulties for the company, simply a desire to cash in on the hot real estate market in the area. Grubb & Ellis is serving as the broker for that deal.
