PMAT Is Acquiring 1,000,000 SF of Suburban Open-Air Retail in 6 Months

CHICAGO, IL / ACCESSWIRE / May 16, 2024 / PMAT has continued the "1.000 Batting Average" for closing acquisitions with over 1,000,000 square feet of value-add, anchored Suburban Open-Air Retail (SOAR) centers across three transactions in the last six months.

These three value-add, anchored suburban Chicagoland assets include:

  • Crystal Point, a 315,000-square-foot SOAR center located in Crystal Lake, IL
  • Shops of Romeoville, an 83,000-square-foot SOAR center located in Romeoville, IL
  • Orland Park Place, a 650,000-square-foot SOAR center located in Orland Park, IL

In November 2023, PMAT acquired Crystal Point at 87% occupancy with anchors such as Best Buy, TJ Maxx, Ross, Fresh Market, Steinhafels, World Market, and Ulta. With numerous tenant renewals and two executed national credit tenant anchor leases that bring the property to 100% occupancy, this asset is already stabilized.

One month later, PMAT acquired Shops of Romeoville at 65% occupancy with anchors such as TJ Maxx, Petco, and Discovery Clothing. Since acquisition, the team has renewed key tenants, executed a national credit tenant anchor lease, and sourced multiple letters of intent with the potential to bring the property to 100% occupancy.

In March of 2024, PMAT acquired Orland Park Place at 88% occupancy with anchors such as Dick's Sporting Goods, Nordstrom Rack, Hobby Lobby, Marshalls, Ross, Ashley Furniture, Barnes & Noble, and more. Although this acquisition just closed recently, the leasing progress has been encouraging with multiple existing tenant renewals and letters of intent from a myriad of new tenants with the potential to bring the property to nearly 100% occupancy.

Since inception in 2003, PMAT has maintained a perfect track record of closing every acquisition that the team has put under contract-a 1.000 batting average for 21 years. When Sellers need a reasonable transaction process with certainty of close, PMAT Performs.

PMAT remains extremely active in the capital markets and is seeking additional JVs and direct purchases of anchored value-add SOAR (Suburban Open-Air Retail) assets typically in the middle-market deal size of $10-50 million in suburban secondary and tertiary markets. Larger middle-market deals in the $50-150M+ deal size are also of interest as are deals below $10M where there is a significant value creation opportunity.
