The two joined up to buy a four-property portfolio from Birdland Properties, a subsidiary of local meat distributor Economy Packing, a neighborhood fixture for over 80 years. NGKF Capital Markets represented both parties in the transaction.

The 83,516-square-foot portfolio consists of 934-938 W. Fulton Market, 939-943 W. Fulton Market, 312 N. Carpenter St. and 328 N. Carpenter St., plus about 35,000 square feet of additional air space.

These properties are all located within a three-minute walk of the new stop.
