Thor Equities Group, a global leader in urban real estate development, leasing and management, is pleased to announce the acquisition of an industrial facility in Newark, New Jersey spanning 131,205 square feet.
Located six miles North of Newark International Airport, and ten miles West of Manhattan, 241 Oraton Street in Newark offers immediate proximity to an extensive highway network and the Port of Newark. The asset’s ideal location allows distribution users to access one third of the US population within five hours. Additionally, the property features a rare 1.5-acre truck court enabling accessory trailer parking. On a total of 5 acres, the asset includes two buildings totaling 131,205 square feet and is 100% leased.
“This latest acquisition represents a rare opportunity to invest in a well-located asset with excellent connectivity. The Northern New Jersey industrial market has performed especially well, and we continue to see great opportunity in the logistics sector in the US and abroad. In recent months we have entered the Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Dallas markets and look forward to building on that momentum in 2022,” said Chairman of Thor Equities Group, Joe Sitt.
Thor recently announced the acquisition of an industrial asset in Atlanta and plans to develop a +1M square foot state-of-the-art warehouse in Adairsville, Georgia. Within the last few months Thor has also added properties in hubs including Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles to their growing logistics portfolio. In addition, Thor notably leased a ground-up development in Brooklyn to a leading e-commerce player in late 2020. Abroad, Thor acquired seventeen assets between Spain and France and sold a 2.2M square foot portfolio in the UK in early 2021.
Thor Equities launched its newly redesigned website, www.thorequities.com in November. The new website reflects the company’s status as a multi-dimensional asset manager and includes its Thor Ventures division focused on investing in technology, DTC brands and transformative businesses.
