Innovative Industrial Properties (IIP) said it extended its geographic footprint into Missouri through a sale-leaseback deal with CPC of Missouri-Smithville, a subsidiary of Massachusetts-based multistate operator Calyx Peak.

According to a news release, the San Diego-based real estate investment trust has agreed to pay CPC $1.5 million for an industrial property.

CPC is expected to construct an approximately 83,000-square-foot cultivation and manufacturing facility at the site.

IIP, in turn, agreed to reimburse CPC up to $26.7 million for the construction costs.

Assuming full reimbursement, the REIT said its total investment in the property is expected to be $28.25 million.

CPC will lease the property back from IIP under a long-term deal.

Missouri represents the 19th state where IIP does business. The REIT owns 75 properties across the country.
