Elion Partners acquired the single-story Prince George’s County industrial building in 2019 for $22 million, according to property records. 

Southland Industries will use the Beltsville building for the storage of equipment and materials, as well as to house employees needed to service its customer base.

“Southland Industries is an extremely active and highly regarded vendor serving the commercial real estate industry which was in need of expansion space in response to the company’s continued growth,” Adam Nachlas, a senior vice president with MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services, who represented the tenant, told Commercial Observer. “Following an extensive search throughout the Baltimore-Washington, D.C., corridor, [the property] satisfied every important criterion including a strategic location, a large and flexible floor plate, and immediate availability.”      

The property is on a 6-acre lot adjacent to U.S. Route 1, approximately 20 miles from both Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Reagan Washington National Airport.     

MacKenzie’s Chris Bennett, along with Matt Wiley of Savills, joined Nachlas in representing the tenant in the deal, while JLL’s Dan Coats and John Dettleff represented the landlord.
