Industrial Equity Fund 1 LLC (the “Company”, or “Industrial Equity”), a Kansas Company was formed as a special purpose entity in 2015 for the purpose of acquiring industrial warehouse, and/or distribution properties in target markets which are: Kansas City, Missouri, Louisville, KY and Savannah, GA. The Company intends to operate as a real estate investment fund with the allocation of the capital for acquisitions that will mature over a seven year period. Industrial Equity Fund 1 LLC is managed and advised by highly experienced real estate professionals, and is headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas.
The Company intends to allocate an estimated seventy-five percent of the invested capital towards property acquisitions that will require an extended duration of time to fully stabilize. The Company expects to allocate an estimated twenty-five percent of the invested capital to include; initial fund costs, projected reposition/redevelopment costs, property reserves, marketing costs & leasing commissions and other fees. The Company will identify properties suitable for acquisition, reposition/redevelopment the properties, complete lease up as necessary and reach stabilization. As position cash flow is available, distributions will be made to the investors as set forth herein.
Targeted properties will allow for repositioning through improvements to the buildings, parking and truck court areas, along with tenant improvements. Following repositioning activities, the properties will be stabilized through lease up then held for the duration of the hold period, which is expected to be seven years. At the end of the projected hold period, the portfolio properties will be liquidated and net proceeds distributed to Members. The Company’s management may engage in disposition of one or more of the properties prior to the end of the hold period if a sale prior to the end of the hold period would provide maximum value as opposed to holding for the full anticipated term.
