TH Real Estate acquires interest in three malls | News
TH Real Estate has acquired ownership interests from Brookfield Property Partners in a portfolio of three high-performing regional shopping malls through its U.S. Super Regional Mall platform.
With the acquisition, the platform has now successfully deployed the $1.35 billion in equity commitments raised. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The portfolio comprises over 4.7 million sq ft of retail space located in three high-quality A+ rated super regional mall assets with average sales in excess of $700 per sq ft. Each of the malls are 98% leased and feature prominent tenants such as Apple, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, H&M, Lululemon and Forever XXI, among others, as well as restaurants and entertainment venues.
"We believe that high-quality, dominant U.S. super regional malls present a sound long-term investment given the current lack of mall construction, and the shift towards consumers seeking entertainment experiences outside the home," said Scott Kempton, Managing Director and Senior Portfolio Manager for TH Real Estate. "These three assets are high-quality dominant properties that offer unique shopping environments which incorporate diverse dining options, movie theatres, fitness facilities and other attractions that can ultimately help drive traffic and sales."
The acquisition supports TH Real Estate's goal to acquire equity interests in dominant super-regional malls and retail centers with top-tier operators and locations in dominant demographic sub-markets of major metropolitan areas. These areas have above-average household incomes and projected population growth at or above the growth rate for the United States as a whole.
TH Real Estate is the second largest investment manager of retail-based real estate globally and the fourth largest for the United States, based on AUM. The company has $41.2 billion in retail AUM globally and $19.4 billion in AUM in the United States across both equity and debt. The company’s U.S. retail equity portfolio of $11.1 billion is highly diversified across 89 investments in 40 markets.
