Kite Realty Group Trust Sells Two Shopping Centers for $63 Million

Company Release - 3/16/2018 6:59 AM ET

INDIANAPOLIS, March 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kite Realty Group Trust (NYSE:KRG) (the “Company”) today announced that it sold two shopping centers this quarter for $63 million in gross proceeds, which were used to pay down the Company’s unsecured revolving line of credit:

  • Trussville Promenade, a 463,836 square foot power center located in Birmingham, Alabama (MSA) that is anchored by Walmart, Regal Cinemas, Big Lots, Marshall’s, and Ross Dress For Less; and    
  • Memorial Commons, a 111,022 square foot center located in Goldsboro, NC (MSA) that is anchored by Harris Teeter and Office Depot.

“We sold these non-core assets in secondary markets to further our deleveraging strategy and to continue improving the quality of our portfolio,” said John Kite, Chief Executive Officer. “These two centers had average base rents and demographics well below those for the balance of our portfolio, and this sale now completes our exit from the Alabama market.”
