The property is 100% leased to Pacon Manufacturing ("Pacon") with 13.1 years of remaining lease term.

This property functions as the mission-critical manufacturing and distribution headquarters facility for Pacon, and we are pleased to add another high-quality building to the portfolio," stated EJ Wislar, Senior Vice President of Gladstone Commercial.
"The acquisition of the Pacon facility continues our core strategy of acquiring well-positioned assets in strong logistical locations. This location provides access to I-40 and I-95, which connect the Port of Wilmington and the Wilmington Terminal Railroad to major markets both North and South," said Buzz Cooper, Co-President of Gladstone Commercial.
Bob Cutlip, Co-President, agreed, "This transaction builds upon our strategy to increase our portfolio allocation to industrial buildings. Wilmington has emerged as a leading competitive Southeastern industrial hub and port, and we are excited to add a new credit-worthy tenant to our portfolio that improves our weighted average lease term."
