Blackstone’s Link Logistics expanded its Pompano Beach industrial portfolio with its recent $20.7 million purchase of a manufacturing and distribution facility. 

An affiliate of Link, a New York-based industrial real estate firm led by CEO Luke Petherbridge, acquired a 93,873-square-foot warehouse at 3141 Southwest 10th Street, records show. The deal breaks down to $221 per square foot. 

A Cushman & Wakefield team led by Dominic Montazemi represented the seller, an affiliate of Miami-based Elion Partners, a press release states. In 2020, Elion paid $11.6 million for the 5.3-acre site, records show. The facility was completed in 2001 when it was leased to Bennett Auto Supply. 

The building is currently leased to The Shade Store, a manufacturer of window treatments, shades, blinds, curtains, and drapes, a press release states.
