Laguna Beach, CA – April 12, 2024 – Dornin Investment Group (“DIG”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of a 20 building 413,172 SF portfolio of light industrial properties in Reno/Sparks, Nevada and select retail and medical office assets in Northwest Reno, Nevada.

The comprehensive 20-building portfolio totaling 413,172 square feet was sourced off-market after purchasing two adjacent light industrial buildings in December 2024 and came to fruition through a long-standing relationship with The Ribeiro Companies as a tenant over a decade ago.

DIG CEO, Chris Dornin remarks, “Mr. Ribeiro and his team have set a remarkably high standard of how to carry properties from development to multiple decades of stewardship. The Ribeiro Companies has an incredible reputation throughout Nevada and it’s evident in the condition of the buildings, the quality of the rent roll, and the team’s professionalism throughout the transaction. We look forward to carrying on the Quail’s legacy in the region.”

The majority of buildings were constructed between 1977 and 1991, with retail assets built in 2005-2006. The portfolio collectively has over 180 total tenants with a median unit size of 1,640 SF. The office buildout of the warehouse units is 21.7%. The industrial building clear heights range 12-16 feet. Given the diversity of units sizes, building proximity, and thoughtful ownership, the portfolio has helped tenants to “grow” in the buildings as their businesses expand, enabling tenants to take on additional space and combine spaces as circumstances permit. The average tenancy has been in place since 2019 with some tenants in place since 1994. At acquisition, rents were on average 30.5% below market rates and had a WALT of approximately one year.

The Reno/Sparks industrial submarket is underpinned by robust market fundamentals, including a mere 3% vacancy rate for the sub 5,000 SF spaces and a remarkable 6.6% annual rent growth over the past decade.

DIG’s business plan focuses on rolling rents to market, addressing specific capital improvement items, and implementing targeted cosmetic upgrades. The properties despite their age have been well maintained with limited deferred maintenance. DIG overcame varying obstacles inclusive of transactions with 10 distinct entities, 20 buildings across product types and varying unit sizes; a ground lease, seller carry debt structure, minor environmental exposure, and multiple rolling leases through closing. DIG capitalized the transaction with seller financing and bridged high net worth capital with equity from Prime Finance.

Commenting on the acquisition, Philip Smith, Director of Acquisitions at Dornin Investment Group, stated, “We are thrilled to add this portfolio to our expanding real estate investment portfolio. The acquisition aligns with our strategic vision of acquiring well-located industrial assets with strong upside potential in dynamic markets. Ed Yuill and Autumn Gardner with The Ribeiro Companies helped make a smooth transition on this complex transaction.”

Mark Nicoletti, Maxwell Shapiro, and Julia Lewitt of Allen Matkins provided legal expertise and were instrumental throughout the complicated transaction. Bill Bernard and Tami Haworth of Stewart Title provided title and escrow services.
