The mostly light industrial buildings were built between 2003 and 2005, and were purchased by Principal in 2008.

The property was 89 percent leased at the time of the sale to Stockbridge, according to JLL (JLL), which represented the seller in the deal. Tenants include a medical equipment manufacturer, pool supply store, general contractor, and several fitness facilities. 

The San Francisco-based Stockbridge is active nationwide and has $33 billion of assets under management. It has been busy in South Florida recently, purchasing a newly built multifamily property just this month in Doral for $156 million. The purchase of the Lyons Technology Center portfolio, which consisted of three separate transactions, appears to have been managed out of the company’s Atlanta office.

The JLL crew representing Principal included Luis Castillo, Cody Brais and Wells Waller from the industrial capital markets team in Miami, as well as analysts Taylor Osborne and Aaliyah St. Louis.

JLL and Stockbridge did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
