DURHAM, N.C. (June 1, 2017) – Commercial real estate investment firm, The Dilweg Companies, announced today the acquisition of a 698,000 square-foot, 7-building portfolio in the Tampa metro.

In conjunction with the acquisition, Dilweg also announced the opening of its Florida office.

“As we continue to expand our presence in Florida, it became increasingly important to have a team on the ground,” said Drew Cunningham, COO of the Dilweg Companies. “We are excited to announce the opening of Dilweg’s first Florida office at Sarasota City Center and welcome real estate veteran, Liz Madzula as Managing Director.”
