Black Creek’s capital fundraising, acquisitions, development and leasing milestones include:

  • 6.9 million square feet of leasing across industrial, office and retail sectors bringing the firm’s 67.0 million square feet of holdings to 94.3 percent leased.

“What we have accomplished so far in 2019 speaks to both the strength of the Black Creek team as well as our healthy growth trajectory,” said Raj Dhanda, Black Creek Group’s chief executive officer. “Commercial real estate fundamentals remain strong and closing on $290 million of equity commitments from institutions in the first half of the year demonstrates the continued demand for the asset class, especially for high-quality, core industrial solutions.”

Industrial fundamentals still top all property sectors as the asset class continues to deliver healthy rent growth and strong demand closely linked to the growing ecommerce sector. With ecommerce continuing to expand, the demand for industrial is expected to increase as users need more warehouse and distribution space.
