Terrafina Signs Binding Agreement for Construction of Industrial Property in Ciudad Juarez

MEXICO CITY, Sept. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terrafina (”TERRA”) (BMV: TERRA13), a leading Mexican industrial real estate investment trust (“FIBRA”), externally advised by PGIM Real Estate and dedicated to the acquisition, development, lease and management of industrial real estate properties in Mexico, announced today the signing of a binding contract for the construction of a built-to-suit (BTS) industrial property located in Ciudad Juarez.

During the last six months, Terrafina participated in an open bidding process and was awarded the construction of an industrial BTS property for an existing tenant in the automotive sector. The total estimated investment in this property (excluding taxes) is of US$13.8 million. This property is expected to generate a development yield over stabilized net operating income (NOI) of above 12%.

The construction process will take place in two phases. During the first phase, an estimated 100,000 square feet will be developed and delivered in the next six months. The second phase will consist of an expansion of approximately 160,000 square feet with the option for an additional 265,000 square feet. The leasing contract was signed for a ten-year period.

“With this type of development opportunity, we aim to strengthen business relationships with our tenants, thereby prompting growth opportunities in the real estate sector. Together with the expertise and market knowledge of our property managers, we expect to take advantage of more active demand in the industrial space to continue promoting the manufacturing-for-export sector in Mexico.  

I also want to mention that we are initiating the process for LEED certification at this industrial property. In this manner, we seek to guarantee the application of sustainable strategies during the construction process, as well as maximizing sustainability levels during its usage phase,” stated Alberto Chretin, Terrafina’s CEO.
