Weingarten Realty Makes Additional Investment In Washington, D.C. Market

Weingarten Realty Investors (NYSE: WRI), a leading owner, manager and developer of shopping centers, announced today that it acquired Pike Center in Rockville, Maryland for $54 million from JBG Companies and JBG Rosenfeld Retail. Pike Center is a dominant, 81,300 square foot, community shopping center located in affluent Montgomery County, Maryland, between North Bethesda and Rockville at the heavily trafficked intersection of Rockville Pike (Maryland Hwy 355) and Bou Avenue. The center, with extensive frontage along Rockville Pike, one of the busiest and most desirable retail addresses in the D.C. region, is situated between two nearby Metro stations: Twinbrook Metro Station and White Flint Metro Station. The center’s demographics boast 145,000 people within 3 miles and average household incomes of $110,000. The property is also part of the White Flint Sector 2 plan currently under study by the County to revise and amend the existing zoning to high density mixed use development within the next three years.

"We are excited about our second investment in the Washington, D.C. market. The quality of this acquisition furthers our strategy to enhance the quality of the Company’s portfolio. Pike Center is an outstanding investment which should provide WRI with approximately a 6% return on our investment and further offers tremendous upside when the property is redeveloped at some point in the future,” said Drew Alexander, President and Chief Executive Officer.
