DALLAS– Hillwood Investment Properties, a Perot company, acquired Rickenbacker 8, a new 484,216 SF Class A industrial warehouse located in the Southeast submarket of Columbus, Ohio.

This Class A, cross dock facility was completed in late 2014 and offers Class A amenities such as 32’ clear height, 135’-185’ truck courts, trailer storage, ample car parking, ESFR sprinklers, and a 15 year 100% tax abatement. This is U.S. Industrial Fund II’s first acquisition in the Columbus industrial market.
