JLL Income Property Trust Fully Subscribes DST Offering with Premier Suburban Atlanta Apartments

June 17, 2020 — Chicago

JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX), announced today the full subscription of JLLX Johns Creek DST, a 1031 tax-deferred exchange offering designed to provide accredited investors with the opportunity to defer taxes on gains from the sale of appreciated real estate.  Structured as a Delaware statutory trust, the syndicated offering owns the Reserve at Johns Creek Walk, a highly amenitized 210-unit apartment community located in the affluent Atlanta suburb of Johns Creek.  Investors in Johns Creek, DST defer the recognition of capital gains from the sale of their appreciated real estate, eliminate the responsibility of actively managing replacement properties, and participate in the cash flow and any future appreciation of the Reserve at Johns Creek Walk.

This apartment community is located in USA Today's “3rd Best City to Live in the United States” and is part of a 26-acre mixed-use development which includes a neighborhood shopping center providing walkable access to restaurants, fitness studios and other retail services.  Residents have access to a highly desirable public school system which has attained LaSalle Research’s Gold Level, with a high school rated A+ by Niche.com.

This offering marks the first entry into the 1031 exchange market by a daily valued, perpetual NAV REIT advised by an institutional investment manager and sponsored by a leader in global real estate services.  The JLL Exchange (JLLX) program plans to offer a series of private placements through the sale of interests in Delaware statutory trusts (DSTs) holding real properties sourced from JLL Income Property Trust’s portfolio or from third parties.

“We are extremely pleased by the market’s strong, positive response to JLLX Johns Creek” said Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust, noting the offering was fully subscribed at a near record pace.  “Since the launch of our market redefining core daily NAV REIT program nearly eight years ago, the most asked for solution from financial advisors has been a companion 1031 exchange offering, and the market’s rapid response to our initial offering has exceeded our expectations.”

“Demand for Johns Creek and the overall interest in the JLLX 1031 strategy outpaced our projections,” said Drew Dornbusch, Head of the JLLX 1031 Platform.  “We believe the lower fees, higher quality properties, and institutional management offered by JLLX will continue to drive significant interest in our offerings.”  Dornbusch further added, “The strong reception to our platform supports our belief that high net worth and ultra-high net worth investors were previously underserved by the syndicated 1031 market.”
