NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

 

Core Portfolio

Acquisition of Unconsolidated Investment

On January 24, 2019, the Renaissance Portfolio, in which the Company owns a 20% noncontrolling interest, acquired a 7,300 square foot property in Fund III’s 3104 M Street property located in Washington, D.C. for $10.7 million (Note 2) less the assumption of the outstanding mortgage of $4.7 million.

Brandywine Portfolio, Market Square and Town Center

The Company owns an interest in an approximately one million square foot retail portfolio (the “Brandywine Portfolio” joint venture) located in Wilmington, Delaware, which includes two properties referred to as “Market Square” and “Town Center.” Prior to the second quarter of 2016, the Company had a controlling interest in the Brandywine Portfolio, and it was therefore consolidated within the Company’s financial statements. During April 2016, the arrangement with the partners of the Brandywine Portfolio was modified to change the legal ownership from a partnership to a tenancy-in-common interest, as well as to provide certain participating rights to the outside partners. As a result of these modifications, the Company de-consolidated the Brandywine Portfolio and accounted for its interest under the equity method of accounting effective May 1, 2016. Furthermore, as the owners of the Brandywine Portfolio had consistent ownership interests before and after the modification and the underlying net assets were unchanged, the Company reflected the change from consolidation to equity method based upon its historical cost. The Brandywine Portfolio and Market Square ventures do not include the property held by Brandywine Holdings, an entity consolidated by the Company.

Additionally, in April 2016, the Company repaid the outstanding balance of $140.0 million of non-recourse debt collateralized by the Brandywine Portfolio and provided a note receivable collateralized by the partners’ tenancy-in-common interest in the Brandywine Portfolio for their proportionate share of the repayment. On May 1, 2017, the Company exchanged $16.0 million of the $153.4 million notes receivable (the “Brandywine Notes Receivable”) (Note 3) plus accrued interest of $0.3 million for one of the partner’s 38.89% tenancy-in-common interests in Market Square. The Company already had a 22.22% interest in Market Square and continued to apply the equity method of accounting for its aggregate 61.11% noncontrolling interest in Market Square and its 22.22% interest in Town Center through November 16, 2017. The incremental investment in Market Square was recorded at $16.3 million and the excess of this amount over the venture’s book value associated with this interest, or $9.8 million, was being amortized over the remaining depreciable lives of the venture’s assets through November 16, 2017. On November 16, 2017, the Company exchanged an additional $16.0 million of Brandywine Notes Receivable plus accrued interest of $0.6 million for the remaining 38.89% interest in Market Square, thereby obtaining a 100% controlling interest in the property. The exchange was deemed to be a business combination and as a result, the property was consolidated and a gain on change of control of $5.6 million was recorded (Note 2).

On November 16, 2017, the Company exchanged $60.7 million of the Brandywine Notes Receivable plus accrued interest of $0.9 million for one of the partner’s 38.89% tenancy-in-common interests in Town Center. The incremental investment in Town Center was recorded at $61.6 million and the excess of this amount over the venture’s book value associated with this interest, or $34.5 million, is being amortized over the remaining depreciable lives of the venture’s assets. The Company previously had a 22.22% interest in Town Center which then became 61.11% following the November 2017 transaction.

On March 28, 2018, the Company exchanged $22.0 million of its Brandywine Notes Receivable plus accrued interest of $0.3 million for one of the partner’s 14.11% tenancy-in-common interests in Town Center. The incremental investment in Town Center was recorded at $ 22.3 million and the excess of this amount over the venture’s book value associated with this interest, or $12.7 million, is being amortized over the remaining depreciable lives of the venture’s assets. The Company continues to apply the equity method of accounting for its aggregate 75.22% noncontrolling interest in Town Center after the March 2018 transaction.

At March 31, 2019, $38.7 million of the Brandywine Note Receivable remains outstanding (Note 3), which is collateralized by the remaining 24.78% undivided interest in Town Center.
