Brookfield, Elion Partners announce $1B partnership

Brookfield Asset Management and Elion Partners, a vertically integrated industrial specialist and sponsor of institutional real estate vehicles, announced a $1 billion strategic partnership this week that will expand Brookfield’s Real Estate Secondaries’ logistics portfolio across core infill markets.

Brookfield recapitalized Elion Logistics Park 55, a Chicago master-planned industrial park with the potential to develop approximately $1 billion of industrial real estate. The project includes five existing Class A industrial assets totaling four million square feet that are 100% leased, as well as the potential to develop up to 15 million square feet of additional industrial properties going forward. The master-planned logistics park is located near the BNSF railway, offers several tenant amenities including essential travel and repair services, and benefits from tax increment financing. Park Madison Partners acted as the exclusive capital advisor for recapitalization.

“Industrial logistics real estate continues to experience positive momentum, and now is the logical time to seek long-term capital,” Elion Managing Partner Juan DeAngulo said in a statement. “This partnership structure and Brookfield’s support will enable Elion to fulfill the long-term development plans for ELP 55.”

“We’re excited about the partnership with Elion and the opportunity to gain exposure to high-quality industrial assets in supply-constrained markets with significant potential upside,” Brookfield Managing Partner Chris Reilly said in a release.

The investment also included an $80 million equity commitment to Elion’s latest affiliated value-added fund, Elion Real Estate Fund V. The fund held its final closing last month as it reached its hard cap of $500 million. A majority of Fund V’s portfolio was prespecified upon Brookfield’s commitment, representing more than 3.2 million square feet of logistics real estate across infill coastal markets.

Brookfield, one of the world’s largest investors in real estate with over $200 billion in AUM, launched its Real Estate Secondaries business last year. The strategy is focused on GP investors who are looking for flexibility and liquidity in managing their private market investments.
