Weingarten Realty Increases Same Store Net Operating Income By 4.9%

"Our continued rise in occupancy and excellent Same Property NOI growth is a clear reflection of our best in class operating platform. While economic activity remains sluggish, our local market expertise coupled with our quality portfolio of properties enables us to sustain this improvement in operating results,” said Johnny Hendrix, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

Capital Recycling

The Company continued its progress in selling its secondary assets and redeploying that capital into higher quality investments in its target markets. Year-to-date, dispositions have totaled $565 million. During the quarter, the Company sold ten retail assets for $66 million and continued the divestiture of its industrial assets by selling nine properties for $23 million from one of its remaining joint ventures. The Company expects to sell its interest in its other industrial joint venture by year-end. The Company redeployed $114 million with the purchase of two outstanding shopping centers and the opportunistic purchase of its venture partner’s interest in another. The Company purchased Roswell Crossing, a 202,000 square foot shopping center in Roswell, Georgia, an affluent suburb of Atlanta. Anchored by Trader Joe’s, Walgreens, OfficeMax and PetsMart, the trade area has average household incomes over $128,000 within a three-mile trade area and 66% of the residents are college graduates. The Company also purchased Pike Center, an 81,300 square foot community shopping center in affluent Rockville, Maryland. The center’s demographics boast 145,000 people within three miles and average household incomes of $110,000. Year-to-date, the Company has invested $235 million in quality shopping centers in great markets.

“We have delivered on every facet of the five-year strategic plan we laid out back in 2011. We continue to reduce the size of our secondary portfolio and recycle that capital into outstanding new properties while using some of the proceeds to reduce our leverage. We are not finished repositioning our portfolio, but our progress has been substantial,” said Drew Alexander, President and Chief Executive Officer.
