The property is being leased to Marengo Cannabis, a subsidiary of Millennium Cannabis.

The latter is a subsidiary of Millennium Investment & Acquisition Co. David Lesser is CEO of both Power REIT and Millennium Investment & Acquisition.

The 20-year lease will provide annual rent of approximately $5.1 million, according to the release.

Per the agreement, Power REIT is funding additional improvements to the property, which is near the town of Battle Creek, on the same terms as the original lease.

The fresh budget for the second phase of the facility will focus on transitioning it from pepper farming to cannabis cultivation, the release says.
