Hassler, Senior Managing Director with Newmark Zimmer. Mark Long reports “The amount of interest that this property generated from a broad base of diverse buyers confirms the increasing demand for industrial product in the Heartland Region. Our expectation is that this demand will only increase in the coming months. “
