CenterPoint is an innovator in the investment, development and management of industrial real estate and multimodal transportation infrastructure. CenterPoint acquires, develops, redevelops, manages, leases and sells state-of-the-art warehouse, distribution and manufacturing facilities near major transportation nodes. Our experts focus on large rail, port and trucking infrastructure assets.


CenterPoint began industrial real estate operations in 1984 under the name Capital and Regional Properties Corporation. After opening our Chicago corporate headquarters in 1991, we acquired and consolidated our operations with FCLS Investors Group. In the years that followed, we cemented our presence in the Midwest. Between 1993 and 2006, we completed our first development in West Chicago, opened regional offices in Milwaukee, made the biggest acquisition in Chicago history and executed the largest build-to-suit Illinois had ever seen.


Between 2008 and 2014, we grew into a truly national company—expanding our footprint to the coasts and western U.S. by opening regional offices in Los Angeles, CA, Norfolk, VA, Kansas City, MO and Saddle Brook, NJ.


Today, the company owns 275 buildings representing 63.5 million square feet in Los Angeles, Northern California, Seattle, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, South Wisconsin, South Florida, Savannah, Charleston, Greenville, New York, and New Jersey. The company is owned by a joint venture between CalPERS and LaSalle Investment Management.
