JLL Income Property Trust Completes Retail Acquisition in Kahului, Hawaii

January 13, 2016 — Chicago

JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally-managed, non-listed, daily valued perpetual life REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX), today announced it acquired Maui Mall, a grocery-anchored retail center located in Kahului, Hawaii on the island of Maui. The recently expanded 235,000 square foot center is 91% leased and anchored by Whole Foods, Longs Drugs (CVS), Regal Cinemas, and TJ Maxx.

Maui Mall is centrally located in Kahului, Maui’s largest retail trade area and the population center of the island. Situated at the intersection of Kaahumanu and Puunene Avenues, the center is easily accessible to local residents as well as visitors arriving from the nearby Kahului Airport. The Kahului Harbor is located across the street from the center, which creates substantial traffic from docked cruise ships.

“This acquisition reflects our strategy to increase our portfolio’s exposure to high-quality, grocery-anchored centers in top national retail markets,” commented Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust. “Maui Mall is our sixth new acquisition in the grocery-anchored retail format and the property’s strategic location and compelling tenant mix combined with a high-performing grocery store should provide the fundamentals to sustain the property’s long-term performance,” added Swaringen.

Throughout it’s over 40-year history, Maui Mall has served as a gathering place for people to shop, dine and play. The seller, a venture including Alberta Development Partners, recently began upgrading the center and has already begun to see the benefit as a number of new tenants, including Max’s Restaurant, TJ Maxx and Pure Barre have signed leases. JLL Income Property Trust intends to continue the common area improvement program under its ownership and has a long-term vision of enhancing Maui Mall’s unique sense of community that has allowed it to thrive.

TJ Maxx, which opened in summer of 2015, has been very well received. TJ Maxx cited the demographic of the population surrounding the center as its primary reason for choosing the location to open its first store on Maui. “In general, when we open new stores, we look for areas with the right mix of demographics, which can include families with children, home ownership, thriving retail areas, and areas where shoppers are fashion-conscious, yet value- conscious,” said Brittany Farrell, real estate spokesperson for TJ Maxx.

In 2015, Pure Barre opened its first location in Hawaii at Maui Mall, quickly becoming popular with both locals and visitors. In December, Max’s Restaurant opened its doors at the center, marking the fast-casual restaurant’s first venture onto Maui. Owner Ernie Abarro, who also owns the IHOP at the mall, says the Maui Mall is the ideal location for his 4,200-square-foot restaurant. He said the improvements Alberta Development Partners has made to the mall have made it more attractive to anchor tenants like Regal Cinemas Maui Megaplex 12, Whole Foods and Longs Drugs, which is renovating both the interior and exterior of its space. “They really cleaned it up,” Abarro said. “And there’s plenty of parking.”

“We are looking forward to working with new ownership to complete the center’s renovation plans and to expand its merchandise offerings with new leasing opportunities for both local and national retailers,” commented Rosalind Schurgin, CEO of The Festival Companies, the management company for Maui Mall.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release may contain forward-looking statements with respect to JLL Income Property Trust. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not descriptions of historical facts and include statements regarding management’s intentions, beliefs, expectations, plans or predictions of the future. Because such statements include risks, uncertainties and contingencies, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. 

Summary of Risk Factors

You should read the prospectus carefully for a description of the risks associated with an investment in JLL Income Property Trust. Some of these risks include but are not limited to the following:

  • Since there is no public trading market for shares of our common  stock, repurchases of shares by us after a one-year minimum  holding period will likely be the only way to dispose of your  shares. After a required one-year holding period, JLLIPT limits the amount of shares that may be repurchased under our repurchase plan to approximately 5% of our net asset value (NAV) per quarter and 20% of our NAV per annum. Because our assets will consist primarily of properties that generally cannot be readily liquidated, JLLIPT may not have sufficient liquid resources to satisfy repurchase requests. Further, our board of directors may modify or suspend our repurchase plan if it deems such action to be in the best interest of our stockholders. As a result, our shares have limited liquidity and at times may be illiquid.
  • The purchase and redemption price for shares of our common stock will be based on the NAV of each class of common stock and will not be based on any public trading market. Because valuation of properties is inherently subjective, our NAV may not accurately reflect the actual price at which our assets could be liquidated on any given day.
    JLLIPT is dependent on our advisor to conduct our operations. JLLIPT will pay substantial fees to our advisor, which increases your risk of loss. JLLIPT has a history of operating losses and cannot assure you that JLLIPT will achieve profitability. Our advisor will face conflicts of interest as a result of, among other things, time constraints, allocation of investment opportunities, and the fact that the fees it will receive for services rendered to us will be based on our NAV, which it is responsible for   calculating.
  • The amount of distributions JLLIPT makes is uncertain and there is no assurance that future distributions will be made. JLLIPT may pay distributions from sources other than cash f low from operations, including, without limitation, the sale of assets, borrowings, or offering proceeds. Our use of leverage increases the risk of your investment. If JLLIPT fails to maintain our status as a REIT, and no relief provisions apply, JLLIPT would be subject to serious adverse tax consequences that would cause a significant reduction in our cash available for distribution to our stockholders and potentially have a negative impact on our NAV.
  • While JLLIPT’s investment strategy is to invest in stabilized commercial real estate properties diversified by sector with a focus on providing current income to investors, an investment in JLLIPT is not an investment in fixed income. Fixed income has material differences from an investment in a non-traded REIT, including those related to vehicle structure, investment objectives and restrictions, risks, fluctuation of principal, safety, guarantees or insurance, fees and expenses, liquidity and tax treatment.
  • Investing in commercial real estate assets involves certain risks, including but not limited to: tenants’ inability to pay rent; increases in interest rates and lack of availability of financing; tenant turnover and vacancies; and changes in supply of or demand for similar properties in a given market.
  • You should carefully review the “Risk Factors” section of our prospectus for a discussion of the risks and uncertainties that we believe are material to our business, operating results, prospects and financial condition. Except as otherwise required by federal securities laws, we do not undertake to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
  • This sales material must be read in conjunction with the prospectus in order to fully understand all the implications and risks of the offering of securities to which it relates. This sales material is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy securities. An offering is made only by the prospectus.
  • Investors could lose all or a substantial amount of their investment. Alternative investments are suitable only for eligible, long-term investors who are willing to forgo liquidity and put capital at risk for an indefinite period of time.
  • This material is not to be reproduced or distributed to any other persons (other than professional advisors of the investors or prospective investors, as applicable, receiving this material) and is intended solely for the use of the persons to whom it has been delivered.
