Amazon warehouse in Ruskin fetches massive sales price

Amazon.com Inc.’s massive fulfillment center in Ruskin has been sold for a massive price tag.

The million-square-foot warehouse sold to Cole Office & Industrial REIT II, a Phoenix-based real estate investment trust, for $103.6 million, according to a Hillsborough County deed filed Wednesday. The price breaks down to $100 per square foot.

The deal closed Tuesday, according to the deed.

The seller was San Antonio-based USAA Real Estate Co., which bought the land to develop the warehouse for Amazon in 2013. It paid $14.6 million for 80 acres, according to property records.

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture.  For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments.  Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.  I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
