I’ll begin my comments by talking about an important new lease and then discuss the new developments we have launched in the third quarter.We know that many of you have had your eye on our 692,000 square foot First Inland Logistic Center development in the Inland Empire. Rest assured, our management and regional agent teams have too. We’re delighted to announce that we recently signed a 15-year lease agreement with the facility with a leading specialty retailers.First Inland Logistics Center would serve as one of their critical distribution facilities on the West Coast; due to its proximity and access to the ports of LA and Long Beach. The lease also includes the excess truckyard which was the unique feature of our property that’s been our tenant need. The lease is expected to be reflected in our occupancy statistics in the fourth quarter.When we last spoke to you, we discussed how we believe additional developments could provide us with better investment opportunities and acquisitions and contribute to our goal of upgrading our portfolio. First Inland Logistics Center is a great example of the type of property in which we want to invest.
