JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX) today announced the results of its execution on a number of strategic initiatives in the third quarter of 2017, which helped drive operational and investment performance while positioning the company for future growth and enhanced stockholder value.

During the quarter, it closed on three new acquisitions totaling $185 million, adding two apartment communities and one grocery-anchored neighborhood shopping center. These newly acquired properties include:

  • Apartments – The acquisitions of Jory Trail at the Grove in Portland and The Reserve at Johns Creek Walk in Atlanta added 534 additional rental units, increasing the apartment allocation to 27 percent of the overall portfolio and nearly $650 million in gross assets. Both investments represent a continuation of our core apartment investment strategy to acquire properties in suburban locations within highly-rated school districts with attractive demographics and significant barriers to entry.
  • Retail – The acquisition of Montecito Marketplace in Las Vegas demonstrates our preference for necessity-driven shopping formats with complementary tenant rosters and high credit quality cash flow, located in strong submarkets with above-average population and income growth profiles. These acquisitions bring the aggregate retail portfolio allocation to 30 percent, at more than $745 million in gross assets.

“We are very pleased that we have been able to identify and close on these three premier properties in the third quarter, further strengthening and diversifying our portfolio across multiple property types and geographic markets. These acquisitions, combined with our sustained focus on operational excellence and investment performance, continue to drive shareholder value,” said Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust.

JLL Income Property Trust ended the first quarter with $2.5 billion in total assets made up of a geographically diversified portfolio of 69 core properties spanning the retail, apartment, industrial and office property sectors. The portfolio is highly leased with an overall occupancy of 94 percent, and an average remaining lease term of 6.1 years, supporting JLL Income Property Trust’s investment objectives of generating attractive income for distribution to stockholders.
