DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Feb. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. (NYSE:CTO) (the "Company") today announced the purchase of Perimeter Place ("Perimeter"), an approximately 269,000 square foot retail center situated on over 24 acres of land in Atlanta, Georgia, for $75.4 million, representing a going-in cap rate within the range of the Company's previously provided guidance. The weighted average lease term for the leases of all 42 tenants at Perimeter is approximately 3.6 years. Perimeter is in the Central Perimeter submarket which has approximately 29 million square feet of office space and employment levels of more than 132,000 people. Perimeter is 80% leased and anchored by SuperTarget (not a part of the Company's acquisition), Ross Dress for Less and Michaels along with a variety of restaurants such as Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Chipotle, Panera, Outback Steakhouse and Carrabba's. The three-mile population is approximately 110,000 with an average household income of over $92,000. Perimeter is located approximately 1-mile from the 1.5 million square foot Perimeter Mall owned by Brookfield Properties and approximately 1.5 miles from the new State Farm campus that is projected to employ approximately 8,000 people by the end of 2020. Perimeter will be managed by CBRE and leased by JLL on behalf of the Company.

This acquisition was purchased using the remaining approximately $65 million of 1031 like-kind exchange proceeds from the Company's sale of 20 assets to Alpine Income Property Trust (NYSE:PINE) in November 2019 (the "PINE Proceeds"). The balance of the purchase price was funded using the Company's line of credit and structured as a reverse 1031 like-kind exchange in order to account for possible future dispositions of income properties by the Company.

Mr. John P. Albright, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "The purchase of Perimeter Place represents the Company's largest asset purchase to date. We believe this premier asset in one of the strongest submarkets in the country has upside potential as the vacancy is leased up. We are also pleased that over the last 90 days we have successfully reinvested approximately $200 million of proceeds into three high-quality retail developments in the Atlanta, Phoenix and Jacksonville MSA's which concludes the redeployment of both the Land JV and Alpine transactions."
