This week witnessed some great action.
The retail asset class continues its return to consistency with a few smaller deals this week.
The largest transaction in Hamilton this week was for 250 Fruitland Rd. in Stoney Creek. This 19.64-acre piece of land sold for $23.562 million (approximately $1.2 million/acre). This is below market value for residential land. However, the parcel appears to be zoned agricultural currently.
Nearby, developer Melrose Investments purchased 4.44 acres for $900,000 ($202,000/acre), which is great value but probably includes more work than the Fruitland Rd. deal.
The largest transaction in the area occurred in Cambridge, where Argyle Capital Partners purchased a 200,000 sq. ft industrial building for $33 million ($165/sq. ft). It’s a slightly large purchase price given the market and size of the asset, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this were fair market value given the way industrial demand and industrial market lease rates continue to grow.
