During the quarter, Regency purchased one property, on a wholly owned basis, at a gross purchase price of $59.5 million and a cap rate on in-place income of 5.0%. Located at one of the most desirable intersections in San Diego, Balboa Mesa is a 189,321 square foot in-fill shopping center anchored by Vons, Kohl’s and CVS. Regency will commence a $12 million redevelopment of the shopping center in early 2013 that will include the addition of 16,000 square feet of new retail space. Once the redevelopment is complete, the estimated NOI yield increases to approximately 6.0% as a result of an estimated incremental return on the redevelopment of more than 8.0%.
Developments and Redevelopments
At September 30, 2012, the Company had seven projects in development with estimated net development costs of $241.7 million. Additionally, Regency had three redevelopment projects in process with estimated net incremental costs, including its pro-rata share of co-investment partnerships, of $13.2 million.
Capital MarketsUnsecured Credit Facility During the quarter, Regency amended its existing unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) and increased the Facility by $200 million to a total of $800 million (the “Amended Facility”). The Amended Facility bears interest at an annual rate of LIBOR plus 140 basis points (inclusive of a 22.5 basis point facility fee) and is based on the higher of the Company’s current corporate credit ratings from Moody's and S&P. The maturity date on the Amended Facility is extended by one year and will expire in September 2016. Additionally, the Company retained a one-year extension option. Preferred Stock During the quarter, Regency issued $75 million of 6.00% Series 7 Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (“Series 7 Stock”). The Company used the proceeds for the redemption of its 6.70% Series 5 Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (“Preferred Redemption”). Beginning in 2013, the Preferred Redemption and the issuance of the Series 7 Stock will result in annual preferred dividend savings of approximately $525,000.
