”The JLL Income Property Trust portfolio today exceeds $3.1 billion in assets…”
“The JLL Income Property Trust portfolio today exceeds $3.1 billion in assets with a significant underweight to traditional office properties at just 7% – a property sector that some estimate to be 40% of the commercial property investable universe,” said Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust.
“While we intend to maintain an underweight to the office sector, this investment at an over 40% discount to replacement cost and with in-place rents well below current market comparables presents an attractive addition to our portfolio. Further, asking rents in this submarket have grown by an astounding 50% over the last five years and Tempe continues to boast strong market fundamentals,” he added.
