OAK BROOK, Ill.--()--Inland Diversified Real Estate Trust, Inc. (“Inland Diversified”) announced today the acquisition of a majority interest in the Territory Portfolio, six grocery- or home improvement-anchored retail properties located in Las Vegas. The properties were acquired in a joint venture between a subsidiary of Inland Diversified and certain affiliates of the seller, Territory, Inc., one of Nevada’s leading developers of open-air retail shopping centers. The joint venture valued the portfolio at approximately $296.3 million. The portfolio totals approximately 1.7 million square feet and was constructed between 1999 and 2009. Anchor tenants include Walmart, Sam’s Club and Lowe’s Home Improvement. Lou Quilici, senior vice president of Inland Real Estate Acquisitions, Inc., facilitated the transaction on behalf of Inland Diversified.
“We were attracted to the portfolio’s strength and mix of tenants, and as our due diligence progressed we felt the properties were a perfect fit with the demographics of their individual markets. We feel this portfolio is a great addition to Inland Diversified’s asset base.”
“We feel that this portfolio offers a strong mix of anchor tenants in key demographic areas in Las Vegas,” Quilici said. “Population around the centers averages more than 100,000 people, with average household incomes around $81,000, which indicates a very stable base of shoppers. This stability is evidenced by the long-term tenancy and strong renewal rate for the vast majority of the tenants despite the economic slowdown over the past several years.”

- Centennial Center: This 857,498-square-foot center is anchored by a Walmart Supercenter, Sam’s Club and Home Depot.
- Centennial Gateway: This 193,009-square-foot center is located next to Centennial Center. Tenants include Sportsman’s Warehouse, 24 Hour Fitness, Walgreens and Smash Burger.
- Eastern Beltway: This 525,225-square-foot center is anchored by a Walmart Supercenter and Sam’s Club. Additional tenants include Ross Dress for Less, Office Max, Petco, Hallmark and Payless ShoeSource.

“It isn’t very often a portfolio of this magnitude comes along,” commented Barry Lazarus, president and chief operating officer of Inland Diversified. “We were attracted to the portfolio’s strength and mix of tenants, and as our due diligence progressed we felt the properties were a perfect fit with the demographics of their individual markets. We feel this portfolio is a great addition to Inland Diversified’s asset base.”
