The Securities and Exchange Commission filing by publicly held Dividend Capital says that it has “entered into a definitive purchase agreement” to acquire the 79 bulk distribution, light industrial and service center buildings from a joint venture between TIAA-CREF and Rreef. The agreement names the subsidiaries of the joint venture as a series of LLCs under the names Cabot Industrial Venture and CW Industrial Venture.

The new properties are scheduled to become part of a Dividend Capital Trust portfolio that totaled 44.8 million sf at the end of the first quarter ended March 31, according to the REIT’s latest quarterly financial statement, which it filed Monday. During the first quarter of this year, the company acquired 3.4 million sf of distribution space.

Monday’s filing said the 44.8 million sf comprised 280 properties either owned, managed or under development. The buildings are in 23 markets and are leased to more than 600 corporate customers.
