JLL Income Property Trust Acquires Suburban Chicago Distribution Center

JLL Income Property Trust | January 14, 2022

JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX) with $5.9 billion in portfolio assets, today announced the acquisition of Elgin Distribution Center, a Class A, two-building industrial property totaling 407,000 square feet and located in the northwest Chicago suburb of Elgin, Illinois. The purchase price was approximately $47 million.

The Elgin Distribution Center fits squarely within our industrial investment thesis as a well-located, newly constructed property with strong tenant profiles, The Elgin warehouse submarket stands out for its access to a robust labor pool and close proximity to Chicago, along with O'Hare International Airport, which we believe will drive long-term value for these properties. Industrial remains an overweight target for our portfolio given our belief that it will provide strong, long-term cashflow to our diverse portfolio. Our aggregate industrial allocation is now over $1.7 billion, or approximately 30 percent of our $5.9 billion portfolio, and includes 54 properties across 13 key markets."

Allan Swaringen, JLL Income Property Trust President and CEO.

Recently constructed in 2020, the properties are built to state-of-the-art design specifications. The larger building, which totals over 326,000 square feet, is cross-docked with 33-foot clear heights. The smaller building, which totals more than 80,000 square feet is rear docked and has 29-foot clear heights and includes a front-office. The properties are 100 percent leased with a weighted average lease term of approximately 10 years.

According to LaSalle Research & Strategy, the Chicago metro is the country's second largest industrial market, with 1.2 billion square feet of industrial space. Chicago's central location, proximity to irreplaceable transportation infrastructure and access to a large population make it a critical hub for national distributors. Over the four quarters ending in Q1 2021, Chicago's industrial market experienced 18.5 million square feet of net absorption and a steady decline in vacancy rates. Chicago also has the highest going-in yields of any gateway industrial market in the U.S. The Elgin Distribution center also benefits from access to a growing population and large labor pool, as well as excellent access to major transportation nodes including Interstate 90, Route 31, Randall Road and Route 47.

Voxtur Signs Exclusive Platform Agreement with The Mortgage Collaborative

Globenewswire | May 19, 2023

Voxtur Analytics Corp. (TSXV: VXTR; OTCQB: VXTRF) ("Voxtur" or the "Company"), a North American technology company creating a more transparent and accessible real estate lending ecosystem, is pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive platform agreement with The Mortgage Collaborative (“TMC”), America’s largest independent cooperative network for the mortgage industry that includes both community banks and non-bank lenders. Voxtur will make available to over 250 TMC members its complete digital ecosystem to support the mortgage lifecycle. More specifically, Voxtur’s mortgage asset trading platform, Blue Water, will deliver a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution to facilitate the purchase and sale of mortgage assets, including first mortgage agency whole loans, mortgage servicing rights, second liens, and non-QM mortgages. The Blue Water platform facilitates pricing, trading, reviewing, transferring, and funding of mortgage assets and portfolios in the secondary market. “This is a tremendous opportunity for Voxtur, TMC, and its members,” said Gary Yeoman, CEO of Voxtur. “Our mortgage asset trading platform is built to deliver high volume trading and create efficient liquidity. We have successfully deployed similar platforms and I am confident that TMC and its members will realize value.” As the market recovers, lenders need increased revenue and liquidity. For mid to small sized lenders with small servicing portfolios, operational friction and high costs result in reduced investor demand and opportunities. Further, smaller portfolios command lower proceeds which naturally disadvantages many originators and prohibits optimum liquidity. TMC can now provide its members with the most sophisticated, efficient, and unique platform for trading asset portfolios of any size. Blue Water’s all-digital trading solution verifies critical loan data, conducts a high-level review of underwriting and investor eligibility, and offers real-time exception remediation management to minimize underwriting risk and avoid costly rep and warrant claims. Blue Water’s data transfer application does not use sampling, but instead verifies every loan file, and does so at an attractive price point. “This is a compelling use case for our members, and I expect that we will see meaningful adoption," said David Kittle, Chairman of TMC. "These have been difficult times for so many of our members and this type of platform will provide tremendous value to support them in driving revenue and solving for liquidity needs at scale.” The Blue Water-TMC platform is expected to go live within the next few weeks with a soft-launch at the Mortgage Bankers Association Secondary and Capital Markets Conference and Expo in New York early next week. About The Mortgage Collaborative Based in San Diego, California, the Mortgage Collaborative was founded in 2013 to empower mortgage lenders across the country with better financial execution, reduced costs, enhanced expertise and improved compliance, as well as helping members access the dynamic and changing consumer base in America. The cooperative is managed by its founding members, John Robbins, CMB; David Kittle, CMB; Gary Acosta, CEO of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP); and Jim Park, former chair of the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA). Robbins and Kittle are former chairmen of the Mortgage Bankers Association of America. About Voxtur Voxtur is a transformational real estate technology company that is redefining industry standards in a dynamic lending environment. The Company offers targeted data analytics to simplify tax solutions, property valuation and settlement services throughout the lending lifecycle for investors, lenders, government agencies and servicers. Voxtur's proprietary data hub and workflow platforms more accurately and efficiently value assets, originate and service loans, securitize portfolios and evaluate tax assessments.
