In a statement, Tom Burns, managing director of Affinius Capital, said that 40 percent of the six property portfolio is fully leased and there are letters of intent currently out “on the majority” of the remaining available space. 

The portfolio provides submarket diversity and a compelling opportunity to provide financing to real estate funds managed by Ares as it leases the portfolio to stabilization,” said Burns. 

Located in Palm Beach, Louisville, Charlotte, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Dallas, the industrial properties within the six building portfolio all feature 24’ to 36’ clear heights for trucks, between 32 and 108 dock doors, and easy access to highways and major freeways. 

Ares Management did not respond to requests for comment.
