Investment Overview

Marcus & Millichap is pleased to present the opportunity to acquire the property located at 818 North 360 West in Valparaiso, Indiana, occupied by the current owner, Archie’s Auto Recycling. The subject property consists of approximately 66,300 square feet of warehouse space and is situated on 9.92 acres of land. The two-building asset features 12 drive-in doors, a fully fenced-in yard, rubber and metal roofing, and a clear height ranging between 10’ and 23’. Zoned I2 in the General Industrial District, the property is permitted for warehousing, light manufacturing, and a special exception use for outdoor storage. In addition to the property, owner-users have the option to acquire the business which serves as an automobile salvage yard for the Northwest Indiana community. Due to zoning restrictions, this sale offers a rare opportunity to acquire an industrial outdoor storage (IOS) property with a coverage ratio of 15.3 percent. Situated along U.S. Highway 6, the property is about five miles from the onramp to Interstate 80 via Willowcreek Road.

The subject property is located in the highly sought-after Porter County submarket. With 16.5 million square feet of industrial space, Porter Country is a mid-size submarket. In recent years, new construction has largely been nonexistent, allowing the vacancy rate to drop to just 1.4 percent during Q2 2023, which is 3.2 percentage points lower than the overall Chicago market. After experiencing negative net absorption last year for the first time since 2013, the submarket bounced back in 2023 with over 180,000 square feet taken off the market through early June. Tight vacancy has allowed Porter County to maintain strong rent growth, with the average market rate up 7.7 percent year-over-year during Q2 (CoStar). As the overall industrial market continues to slow down, Porter County could act as a safe haven.
