Warehouse at 3348 South Pulaski Road

California-based LBA Real Estate recently paid $38.5 million for a nearly 317,000-square-foot warehouse on Chicago’s Southwest Side.

PGIM Real Estate, the real estate arm of insurance giant Prudential, sold the property at 3348 South Pulaski Road in South Lawndale to LBA Real Estate in October, according to property records. Industrial and office developer Panattoni purchased the site for $5.4 million in 2014 and built the warehouse, which PGIM Real Estate bought for nearly $30 million in 2015.

About one-third of the warehouse is currently vacant, with almost 107,000 square feet available for lease, according to a brochure. Cushman & Wakefield is handling the leasing for LBA Real Estate.

Two tenants currently lease space at the warehouse, including Skender, which builds components for modular homes there. The modules for apartments and hotel rooms are made in the 105,000-square-foot factory and then assembled on construction sites, including vacant lots on the Near West Side where developer Sterling Bay is putting up 10 three-flat apartment buildings, Crain’s reported.

A year ago, LBA bought a 43,000-square-foot warehouse at 4100 Madison Street in Hillsdale for $14.8 million.

LBA Real Estate and PGIM Real Estate didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
