Cushman & Wakefield Selected to Provide Leasing Services


INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 16, 2016 – Cushman & Wakefield, a global leader in commercial real estate services, announced today that a joint venture, OVB Indianapolis Industrial, LLC, comprised of Biynah Industrial Partners and Olympus Ventures, has purchased eight modern bulk buildings totaling more than 3.8 million square feet and a 42-acre land site in Greater Indianapolis. The firm has selected Cushman & Wakefield’s The Weishaar | O’Neil Team – Senior Managing Director Michael W.M. Weishaar, SIOR, and Associate Scott O’Neil, J.D – to provide leasing services.

“The Weishaar | O’Neil Team are consummate professionals and well-respected within the Indianapolis brokerage community,” said Andy Bennett of Biynah Industrial Partners. “We have the utmost confidence in their abilities and know that our current and future tenants will find them a great group to work with alongside the new owner.”

Within the Southwest submarket, four of the buildings are located in Airwest Industrial Park; two buildings and the vacant land site are in AmeriPlex in Indianapolis; and an additional building is on South Girls School Road near the Indianapolis International Airport. The remaining building is located in Brownsburg in the West submarket. Best-in-class tenants occupy these facilities, including OHL, Sur La Table and the U.S. Postal Service, to name a few.


While most buildings in the portfolio are occupied, 216,600 square feet at 7452 Tempelhof Drive and 42 acres of vacant land at Decatur Boulevard and Thompson Road, are immediately available; both are located in Indianapolis. Another 315,000-square-foot space will be available on May 1 at 3100 Reeves Road in Plainfield. Both facilities feature cross-dock configurations, modern lighting and easy access to the Interstate 465 and Interstate 70 corridors, as well as close proximity to the FedEx hub at the Indianapolis International Airport.


“We have a successful, long-standing relationship with Biynah, including current listing assignments in the Northwest and East submarkets,” said Mr. Weishaar. “We couldn’t be more pleased to assist them once again with best-in-class marketing services for this portfolio.”
