The transaction of the property sale was facilitated by Maggie Holmes of Northmarq’s Atlanta office who represented SkyREM. According to Marc Civitillo, Managing Director at SkyREM, the sale of the property was a strategic move. He said, “It’s the perfect time to exit the asset due to the strong market characteristics and high demand for smaller industrial properties.”
