Eastgate 540 announces close to 150,000 SF in leasing transactions

October 17, 2019

Trinity Capital Advisors’ recent acquisition, Eastgate 540, will soon be home to several new tenants.

The property, located in Raleigh’s East Wake submarket, includes an existing 150,000 SF Class-A industrial building and additional development acreage. The existing building is now fully leased as a result of two recent transactions: CHEP USA, the industry’s leading pallet provider, leased 57,000 SF (represented by Greg Lance with Cushman & Wakefield), and All American Relocation (represented by Bryan Everett with CBRE), a full-service moving company, leased 45,750 SF.

After acquiring the park in May of this year, Trinity Capital immediately began development of a second 150,000 SF building. Trade Venture Stones has leased 46,080 SF in the building (represented by Austin Nagy with CBRE), leaving 104,000 SF of remaining availability. The building will deliver this December.

“We believed strongly in the product and the market when we acquired the asset this spring, but the activity we’ve experienced has exceeded our expectations,” said Jeff Sheehan, Partner at Trinity Capital. “To be fully occupied at one building, and have a significant lease signed at another still under development validates the location and the asset class, and we’re looking forward to continued development within the park.”

In addition to these two buildings, Trinity Capital has plans to eventually develop four more buildings, expecting to ultimately have just under one million square feet within the six-building park.

Eastgate 540 is ideally located adjacent to two major Interstates, I-540 and the future I-87, and close to I-440 and the I-40 corridor. Foundry Commercial, led by Jackson Rives (Managing Director), leases the park on behalf of ownership.
