Are you interested in investing in Commercial Real Estate or have 1031 money available for reinvestment?

HCS is very active in the local Bi-State Commercial Real Estate Development Market.  We are always on the lookout for undervalued and value-added opportunities especially in the small to midsized warehouse market.  This niche is a key strategy for strong returns as it generally requires lower initial and long-term re-tenanting costs.

  • Existing industrial buildings, preferably built after 1980.
  • Value-added opportunities, determined by a vacancy of 20%+, some curable obsolescence, or poor marketing/dealmaking.
  • Transaction size of $1million - $5 million
  • Single free-standing buildings or portfolios
  • Single and multi-tenant buildings
  • Sale and Lease Back or excess property situations
  • Preferred markets are the St. Louis County Missouri, and SW Illinois
  • Opportunity and Enterprise Zone Properties or other incentives that provide equity partners with additional tax opportunities.

Contact us today for a list of current opportunities or call 314-581-2667 to speak with Tom.
