OAKLAND, CA—Westcore has acquired a 155,000-square-foot, class A industrial warehouse located at 8380 Pardee Dr. in Oakland, CA for $40.5 million. Constructed in 2012, the fully leased distribution facility features 8,000 square feet of cold storage, 30-foot clear height, ESFR fire suppression and an excellent location adjacent to the Oakland airport.

“In addition to its excellent location, the facility offers tenants all of the features of a modern, class A building. We are excited to welcome a quality company like Anhesuer Busch to our portfolio,” says Peter Mette, managing director at Westcore, in a prepared statement. “The industrial property market remains strong, and we are bullish on the long-term fundamentals of the Oakland market and the investment in 8380 Pardee Dr.”
