Nevada-based co. on warehouse woes and expanding in ABQ

October 24, 2017

Brady Industries is growing but finding real estate that would foster the growth spurt hasn't been easy, the janitorial equipment supplier said.

Brady Regional Manager Mark Stanger said the Las Vegas-based company will be leaving 5801 Office Blvd., where it has been located for over 10 years, and head to a bigger space at 8600 San Mateo Blvd., increasing its Albuquerque location by 10,000 square feet. The goal is to have the move wrapped up by the end of November.

While Stanger said moving has been stressful, he said finding a warehouse in northeast Albuquerque also had its hurdles.

Brady had been considering changing its real estate situation for about six years, Stanger said, and with the company's lease up at the former location it was time to seriously start hunting.

"We started to look at the very limited warehouse space," he said.

Stanger said he found a variety of warehouse space on the Westside but needed to be in a different part of town for his customer base. Brady is leasing at the San Mateo location because it is convenient for customers with easy access to the interstate. Terms of the lease were not disclosed.

"It's not as competitively priced as we would've liked," said Stanger about finding a warehouse.

He also noted a lot of warehouse space in Albuquerque is about 10 percent office space and he needed 20 percent.

Stanger – who has done business for Brady in Phoenix – found it more difficult looking for new property in Albuquerque, citing an inventory issue.

"There just hasn't been a demand for Albuquerque," he said.

Albuquerque has a 6.6 percent vacancy rate in its industrial market with a median asking lease rate of $6.99 per square foot, according to a CBRE market report for this year's second quarter. Office-warehouse specific real estate had an 8.4 percent vacancy rate.

C&S broker honored for Deal of the Year under $1MM

When the average person thinks of commercial real estate, they may only pay attention to the transactions attached to big names — a lease with a national retailer, or a big Downtown building sold.

But there are so many other real estate transactions that have a big impact based on other factors, such as how much work went into closing the deal or a deal that finally closed after the project was on the market for years.

Two commercial real estate organizations, Certified Commercial Investment Members New Mexico chapter and Commercial Association of Realtors New Mexico, honored two of the best deals during the last year.

The two organizations held a gala for local commercial real estate brokers Sept. 15 at Albuquerque Marriott.

CCIM members recognized Brandon Saylor with Colliers International for a deal under $1 million. Saylor represented the property owner of a 10,000-square-foot industrial building at 500 Menaul Blvd. NW.

Saylor said the deal was memorable because he had the property listing for 31 months. The property was purchased by McElroy Metal Inc., represented by Barbara Haase of Cauwels & Stuve Realty , for an undisclosed price.

"This one was a tough one in the sense that there were a lot of people interested and we got a lot of calls on it, but not everyone had the money to do something with it," Saylor said.

For the deal of the year over $1 million, CCIM recognized Walt Arnold of SVN | Walt Arnold Commercial Brokerage and Larry Ilfeld of SVN Commercial Real Estate Advisors for selling the former First Community Savings Bank building at 100 N. Guadalupe St. in Santa Fe.

The building, which had a low occupancy rate, was purchased by two local entities, Phase One Equity and Firestone 100 LLC, for $2.4 million in May. Tim House with SVN/ Team Southwest represented the buyers.
