After Duke closes on all the properties, the Indiana-based REIT will become the largest commercial and industrial property owner in both Broward and Palm Beach counties. The 4.9 million-square-foot portfolio was sold by Premier Commercial Realty for $450 million. The final 13 properties in the deal are expected to close before the end of the first quarter of the year. [FREJ]
