Podcast: The Industrial Real Estate Show with Chad Griffiths

Ryan Koehn, principal at Artisan Industrial, joins host Chad Griffiths this week to explore the world of value-add industrial real estate investment.

They’ll tackle why Koehn settled on industrial real estate as a platform of choice, what he looks for in an opportunity, and how to add value to a property, among other topics.

The interview was conducted live, so comments and questions from participants will appear in real-time in the chat window.

Koehn got his start in real estate investing by flipping residential condos in 2006. After getting the itch for larger deals, he bought a multi-family property in 2008, followed by an industrial building in 2009.

After a series of industrial purchases, sales and developments, he founded Artisan Industrial in Edmonton with his partner Kyle Jacober in 2021. The fund is fully subscribed with two assets closed and two further assets set to close in the summer.

Koehn’s portfolio is comprised of approximately 200,000 square feet, and the partners are actively look for value add/repositioning opportunities in the industrial space.
