CenterPoint Properties has expanded its portfolio of industrial properties across Southern California with three new buildings.

In L.A. County, CenterPoint purchased a 46,800-square-foot building at 1300 Palomares Avenue in La Verne, and a three-acre property at 4061 Via Oro Avenue in Long Beach.

The properties cover 16 acres altogether. Buildings only cover 30 percent of the land in the Ontario and Long Beach deals, the firm added.

CenterPoint has purchased at least 15 properties across Southern California this year. In October, the firm bought a 52,300-square-foot warehouse in Torrance — around 20 minutes from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

The deals come as the industrial real estate market continues to boom, fueled by growth in e-commerce sales, especially amid the holiday season. Industrial landlords continue to be on the hunt for properties across infill areas in Southern California.

Last week, Rexford Industrial Realty bought the largest industrial property in the Simi Valley for $46.4 million — the firm spent $126 million on acquisitions in October and November.
