Stonepeak Completes Sale of 1.3 Million Square Foot Omni Industrial Campus in Charleston, South Carolina
NEW YORK, NY – October 24, 2023 – Stonepeak, a leading alternative investment firm specializing in infrastructure and real assets, today announced that it has completed the sale of Omni Industrial Campus, a three-building, 1.3 million square foot logistics portfolio in Charleston, South Carolina. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Omni Industrial Campus is strategically located along Interstate 26 between Interstate 95 and the Port of Charleston, which is expected to double in capacity by 2033 as a result of continued share-shift from West Coast ports to East Coast ports, population growth, and growth of manufacturing in the greater Charleston area. The Port’s expansion is driving additional demand for warehouse space from customers entering and expanding in the Charleston market, making Omni Industrial Campus a prime location for customers given its proximity to strategic transportation infrastructure.
“This transaction demonstrates Stonepeak’s ability to identify and execute investments at the intersection of real estate and infrastructure,” said Phill Solomond, Senior Managing Director and Head of Real Estate at Stonepeak. “We leveraged insights from our leading infrastructure platform to build conviction around this submarket, which has seen strong logistics growth as a direct result of the expanding Port of Charleston.”
Stonepeak’s real estate team invests thematically in real estate assets that demonstrate infrastructure characteristics. The team draws on its deep experience from prior leadership positions within leading investment firms to invest behind high conviction sectors including supply chain, residential, healthcare, and technology real estate. Drawing upon the strength and insights of the broader Stonepeak platform, the team targets opportunities supported by strong macro tailwinds that have durable cash flow profiles, embedded demand drivers, high barriers to entry, inflation protection, and are mission critical to the businesses and communities they serve.
