Located in the Northwest submarket of Houston, DCT Claymoore Center encompasses a bulk and light industrial facility and is 95.8 percent occupied. The multi-tenant facilities offer direct access and visibility to the Sam Houston Toll Road. They were constructed in 2001 and feature highly-functional rear load and cross dock buildings. This sale was an off-market transaction in a highly-sought-after submarket of Houston.

“DCT Claymoore Center is an excellent addition to our Houston Portfolio and this acquisition represents our continued effort to grow our footprint within the Northwest Submarket of Houston,” said Justin Bennett, Regional Vice President for DCT Industrial Trust. “We are very pleased to acquire these Class A facilities through our existing relationships within the market.”

This acquisition brings DCT Industrial’s Houston portfolio to 3.5 million square feet and 98.1 percent leased.
