Other Details:  Globe originally purchased the property from Savage Universal 1/26/2000 for $4.7 million.  Savage moved out at the end of the lease term February 2015.  Globe restored to building to Class A condition, held out for a single tenant user and leased the building to Amazon.com December 2016 for a 5 year lease term with extension options.   Decided to take some profit off the table and sell the building due to significant institutional buyer interest for high-quality industrial assets leased to public companies, particularly Amazon.  Globe put the proceeds into 1031 exchange and is looking for other opportunities to defer the substantial gain.
