DWS's RREEF Property Trust Acquires Urban Grocery-Anchored Shopping Center in Chicago


DWS Group announced today that RREEF Property Trust, Inc. (NASDAQ:
ZRPTAX; ZRPTIX; ZRPTTX), its publicly registered, daily NAV REIT, has
acquired Elston Plaza, an urban grocery-anchored shopping center in
Chicago. The property is anchored by one of the metro area's leading
grocers, Jewel-Osco, and is strategically located at the confluence of
three of Chicago's busiest thoroughfares: Addison, Elston & Kedzie. The
acquisition further diversifies RREEF Property Trust's private real
estate holdings based on sector, geography and tenant base.

The property, built in 1983, totals 92,806 rentable square feet and is
currently 96% leased to 11 tenants. Jewel-Osco is complemented by a mix
of service, medical, and dining tenants including Chase Bank, Chipotle
Mexican Grill, O'Reilly Auto Parts and ATI Physical Therapy. Located in
the Avondale neighborhood, the shopping center sits east of the I-90/94
Addison entrance and 3 miles west of Chicago's Wrigley Field.

"While e-commerce is growing rapidly, well-located necessity based
brick-and-mortar sales are also expanding. Centers like Elston Plaza
drive consumer traffic by meeting area residents' daily service and
dining needs and have historically been cyclically defensive given the
lease structures and merchandizing mix," said Todd Henderson, Head of
Real Estate, Americas, for DWS. "We believe that grocery-anchored
shopping centers have an important place in a portfolio and view the
acquisition of Elston Plaza as a complementary addition to RREEF
Property Trust's growing portfolio of assets."
