RYE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Acadia Realty Trust (NYSE: AKR) (“Acadia” or the “Company”) announced that the Company completed approximately $96 million of Fund V acquisitions and a $42 million Core Structured Financing investment. The Company will participate virtually at the Bank of America Securities Global Real Estate 2021 Conference on September 21-22, 2021.
“We are excited to add two new Fund V acquisitions and a Core Structured Financing investment as we continue to expand our portfolio with future value creation opportunities,” stated Kenneth F. Bernstein, President & CEO of Acadia Realty Trust.
Fund V Acquisitions
Fund V completed $96 million of its previously announced $170 million of acquisitions under contract and/or agreements in principle and has approximately $74 million remaining. No assurance can be given that Fund V will successfully close on such acquisitions under contract, which are subject to customary conditions and market uncertainty.
Canton Marketplace, Canton, GA. In August 2021, Fund V completed the acquisition of Canton Marketplace, a 350,000 square-foot power center located in Canton, Georgia for $51.2 million. At acquisition, the property was 87% leased to a strong lineup of tenants including Dick’s Sporting Goods, TJ Maxx and Best Buy and is shadow-anchored by Target, Kohl’s and Lowe’s. At approximately $150 per foot acquisition cost, the property is consistent with Acadia’s “only game in town” strategy, with attractive co-tenancy and a strong renewal history. The acquisition of Canton Marketplace includes the assumption of securitized debt (~60% loan-to-cost, 3.35% all-in rate) with approximately 19 months of remaining term.
Monroe Marketplace, Selinsgrove, PA. In September 2021, Fund V completed the acquisition of Monroe Marketplace, a 370,000 square-foot grocery-anchored shopping center located along the highly trafficked Route 11/15 in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania for $44.8 million and at approximately $120 per foot acquisition cost. The property is 99% leased, anchored by Giant and Kohl’s and shadow-anchored by Target. Giant’s lease term was extended to 2035 in connection with the acquisition.
Core Structured Financing Investment
In September 2021, the Company completed a $42 million Structured Financing investment secured by a first mortgage on a property located at 57-63 Greene Street in Soho, New York and included certain participation and purchase provisions. This property expanded the Company’s presence and existing cluster of street retail assets on Greene Street.
Year to date, the Company has made approximately $60 million of Structured Financing investments.
