Jones Lang LaSalle Income Property Trust, Inc., an institutionally-managed, non-listed, daily valued perpetual life REIT, today announced the results of its execution on a number of strategic initiatives in the first quarter of 2014, capitalizing on market opportunities to better position its portfolio of diversified core properties for future growth and enhancement of stockholder value.

During the quarter, it closed on three new acquisitions for a total of nearly $62 million. These newly acquired properties include:

  • Oak Grove Plaza, a Kroger-anchored retail property located in a high-growth residential corridor in northeast suburban Dallas. This $22.5 million acquisition was financed with a ten-year $10.5 million fixed rate mortgage loan at a 4.17% interest rate. The loan to value on this property is 47%.

  • Grand Prairie Distribution Center, a 277,000 square foot, state-of-the-art industrial building located near Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Grand Prairie, TX for $17 million. The property is 100% leased to a single tenant for ten years with two contractual rent increases over the lease term.

  • South Beach Parking Garage, a 340 stall, seven-level parking garage located on South Beach in Miami Beach, FL for $22 million. The property is strategically located on a highly trafficked area of Collins Avenue with more than 120 hotels within a one mile radius.

"These activities, combined with the execution of an expanded lease agreement with Amazon at our Monument IV property in the D.C. area and the advantageous financing we put into place on a number of our recent acquisitions continue to drive portfolio value and enhance our dividend coverage," commented Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of Jones Lang LaSalle Income Property Trust.
