JLL Income Property Trust Closes Venture Investment in 15 Property Portfolio Of New York City Retail Properties

January 5, 2016 — Chicago

JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally-managed, non-listed, daily valued perpetual life REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX), today announced it recently acquired an approximate 14% interest in a portfolio of 15 urban infill retail properties located in the greater New York City area. The portfolio is leased to a mix of grocer, consumer staple, big box, discount, and entertainment retailers strategically positioned in high-density and transportation hub locations. The purchase price for the aggregate portfolio was approximately $1.3 billion, with Income Property Trust’s interest representing an approximate $165 million gross investment, including the assumption of existing in-place debt.

The portfolio contains approximately 2.7 million square feet in highly attractive retail locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island and New Jersey and is 98.5% leased to a high-quality tenant roster and includes several national retailers’ top-grossing flagship stores. All of the properties are located at or near major transportation hubs, in urban areas with significant foot traffic and high public visibility, or along major thoroughfares.

“This investment offers us the rare opportunity to complement our growing portfolio of suburban grocery-anchored shopping centers with ownership in a diversified portfolio of Class A retail properties in irreplaceable urban infill locations in the densest metropolitan area in the U.S.,” commented Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust. “Adding New York City exposure to our portfolio also provides further diversification benefits and unprecedented opportunities for growth as New York has the lowest retail space per capita of all major U.S. cities.”

JLL Income Property Trust is a non-listed, daily valued perpetual life real estate investment trust (REIT) that gives investors access to a growing portfolio of commercial real estate investments selected by an institutional investment management team and sponsored by one of the world’s leading real estate services firms.
