The Class A office building is 100% leased and occupied by BITCO.

The Property’s location in the Quad Cities aligns with our focus on acquiring superior properties with quality tenants and long-term cash flow in desirable suburban markets,” said Sentinel’s Chief Investment Officer, Dennis Cisterna.
