JLL Income Property Trust Office Property Earns LEED Silver® Certification and ENERGY STAR® Label

March 29, 2018 — Chicago

Pioneer Tower

JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed, daily valued perpetual life REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAXZIPTMXZIPIAXZIPIMX), today announced that Pioneer Tower, a Class A office asset in its portfolio located in Portland, has recently earned LEED Silver® certification. The 300,000-square-foot property also recently earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR® certification, which signifies that the building performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meets strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. To meet the energy reduction prerequisites for LEED certification, properties must benchmark energy consumption against similar buildings across the nation. JLL Income Property Trust completed an energy audit on Pioneer Tower, which identified several energy conservation measures to successfully meet the energy prerequisite.

“We are delighted that Pioneer Tower was able to meet the stringent criteria required to achieve both LEED and ENERGY STAR distinctions,” commented Allan Swaringen, President & CEO of JLL Income Property Trust. “As proactive asset managers focused on value-creation for our shareholders, we believe that implementing Environmental, Social and Governance principles across our portfolio has a direct impact on our investment performance.”

JLL Income Property Trust acquired Pioneer Tower in July, 2016, and has been working toward the goal of earning LEED Silver certification for the building since early 2017.

With contributions from the local property team, a sustainability consultancy and in-house energy and sustainability experts, the following project highlights were achieved at Pioneer Tower:

- 100 percent of durable goods diverted from landfills
- High-performance green cleaning program that minimizes the use of chemicals, while also providing increased air quality
- Replacing any lamps with higher mercury content with either LED or low-mercury content bulbs
- Conversion of older restroom fixtures to achieve maximum indoor water efficiency
- Engaging and educating tenants in green measures such as increasing alternative transportation methods, and also increased recycling diversion rates

“LaSalle Investment Management and JLL are proud to demonstrate their collective commitment to ESG best practices through Pioneer Tower’s first LEED and Energy Star certifications,” noted Eric Duchon, Global Head of Sustainability with LaSalle. “Much like the approach at Pioneer Tower, we will continue to seek out cost-effective methods to achieve certifications across JLL Income Property Trust’s portfolio through initiatives such as our LEED Volume Program, which achieves certification at half of the cost of historical LEED projects.”

Pioneer Tower is a 17-story, multi-tenant, Class A office building in the heart of Portland’s central business district. Set atop Portland’s leading retail destination, Pioneer Tower offers a premium office experience within an unparalleled mixed-use urban environment and direct access to Pioneer Place, Portland’s number one shopping destination, while also offering convenient access to its Transit Mall, the city’s nexus of light rail public transportation systems. Pioneer Tower is 95% leased to a diverse roster of professional service tenants whose average tenure of occupancy is over fourteen years.

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, we limit 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, we 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.
  • We are dependent on our advisor to conduct our operations. We will pay substantial fees to our advisor, which increases your risk of loss.
  • We have a history of operating losses and cannot assure you that we 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 we make is uncertain and there is no assurance that future distributions will be made. We may pay distributions from sources other than cash flow from operations, including, without limitation, the sale of assets, borrowings, or offering proceeds.
  • Our use of leverage increases the risk of your investment.
  • If we fail to maintain our status as a REIT, and no relief provisions apply, we 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.
