Avistone principal Richard Kent commented on the favorable risk profile of this multi-tenant investment, "this property is leased to 43 tenants and no tenant occupies more than 8% of space, therefore no single tenant can't significantly affect the cash flow of the Northgate Business Center, which reduces risk compared to single tenant industrial property.
Kent added that "purchasing the business park for a price that is below replacement cost also helps to reduce risk. Mr Kent went on to comment that "business trends, especially the growth of e commerce and the recent federal funding of large levee projects in Sacramento, favored the growth in value of multi-tenant industrial real estate in this market."
