RYE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 11, 2019-- Acadia Realty Trust (NYSE:AKR) (“Acadia” or the “Company”) today announced that, subsequent to the third quarter of 2019, the Company completed approximately $83 million of transactions. Year to date, the Company has completed approximately $561 million of transactions – $318 million of fund acquisitions, $78 million of fund dispositions, $142 million of core acquisitions and a $23 million Core disposition.

“We are constantly looking for ways to strengthen and grow our portfolio – whether that be through new acquisitions or selective dispositions” stated Kenneth F.

Core Acquisitions

8436-8452 Melrose Place, Los Angeles, CA. As previously announced, in October, Acadia completed the acquisition of 8436-8452 Melrose Place in Los Angeles, CA for $47.7 million. The five contiguous store fronts are leased to high-quality, luxury tenants including Chloe (a subsidiary of Richemont), Oscar de la Renta, The Row, L'Agence, Violet Grey and Melanie Grant Skincare. This transaction is consistent with its strategy of acquiring critical mass on key urban streets with high barriers to entry.

45 Greene Street, New York, NY. In November 2019, as part of its previously announced New York City Street retail assets in Soho, Acadia acquired 45 Greene Street for $12.2 million. The Company executed a lease with L’Agence in conjunction with the closing.

As previously announced, the Company has acquired, or entered into contracts to acquire $121.8 million of New York City street retail assets in Soho. Of the $121.8 million, $86.8 million have closed and $35.0 million remains under contract to date. The Company expects to complete the remaining properties under contract in phases through 2020. No assurance can be given that the Company will successfully close on the remaining acquisitions under contract, which are subject to customary closing conditions.

Core Disposition

Pacesetter Plaza, Pomona, NY. In October 2019, the Company sold Pacesetter Park Shopping Center, a 95,000 square-foot suburban shopping center located in Pomona, NY, for $22.6 million in an off-market transaction. As previously announced, the Company had successfully executed a lease for re-anchoring its grocer. This strategic disposition allowed Acadia to capitalize on attractive pricing and accretively reinvest the proceeds into higher growth street and urban assets.
