JLL Income Property Trust Acquires Retail Center in Durham, NC
CHICAGO (July 26, 2022) — JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX) with approximately $6.7 billion in portfolio assets and advised by LaSalle Investment Management, announced today the acquisition of Patterson Place a 25,000-square-foot retail center in Durham, North Carolina. The retail property is anchored by Duke Medical Plaza, which was recently acquired by JLL Income Property Trust. Patterson Place was acquired for approximately $14.5 million.
“Patterson Place is a well-located, medical office-anchored retail center that we believe benefits from strong foot traffic generated by the recently acquired Duke Medical Plaza along with a strong tenant roster and a prime location at the intersection of two major thoroughfares that connect dense population centers,” said JLL Income Property Trust President and CEO Allan Swaringen. “We have conviction in the Raleigh market and believe the outlook for retail with a strong anchor tenant looks positive as pandemic restrictions ease and consumer spending remains elevated. All of these factors point to a strong investment that should yield long term, stable cashflow for our stockholders.”
Constructed in phases between 2010 and 2015, Patterson Place tenants include national retailers such as Five Guys, AT&T and Moe’s. The weighted average lease term is greater than five years. In addition to its strong tenant roster, Patterson Place benefits from local demographic tailwinds. According to LaSalle Research & Strategy, Raleigh’s in-migrations is expected to outpace the US rate with a high-concentration of prime-age workers over the next 10 years. Within a one-mile radius of the property annual population growth is projected to grow twice as fast as the US average, which should drive continued consumer demand.
The property’s location just off of Interstate 40 puts it at the center of a key regional connector between Durham, Research Triangle Park and Raleigh and makes it accessible to Duke University and University of North Carolina, both of which are just a 10-minute drive.
JLL Income Property Trust’s retail allocation is 14 properties in 13 key markets valued at $789 million and representing approximately 13 percent of its overall portfolio.
JLL Income Property Trust is an institutionally managed, daily NAV REIT that brings to investors a growing portfolio of commercial real estate investments selected by an institutional investment management team and sponsored by one of the world’s leading real estate services firms.
