MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin – An affiliate of Phoenix Investors, a private commercial real estate firm headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has acquired an approximately 880,000-square-foot industrial facility on 105 acres adjacent to the Coffeyville Municipal Airport in Coffeyville, Kansas.

The original facility was a built as a distribution centre for Golden Books in 1978 and was occupied as an Amazon fulfillment centre from 1999 through 2014.

The property is located within proximity to State Highway 169, 166, Interstate 35, Interstate 70 and Interstate 44, and features clear ceiling heights up to 39 feet, 70 dock doors, 3 drive-in doors, air conditioning and 630 surface parking spaces. It was built in phases from 1978 to 1999, having an optimal layout for multi-tenant occupancy.

Phoenix has leased the entire facility to Array Technologies for the distribution of single-axis solar tracking equipment.

“The property is in excellent condition and it is ready for immediate occupancy. Coffeyville has a strong labour pool that can accommodate various industrial uses,” said Anthony Crivello, executive vice-president of Phoenix.

“Given the geographic location in the center of the United States, it represents an ideal location for national and regional distribution uses.”
