A&B Properties To Acquire Pearl Highlands Center In West Oahu

HONOLULU, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. (NYSE: ALEX) ("Company" or "A&B") announced today that its real estate subsidiary, A&B Properties, Inc., has agreed to acquire Pearl Highlands Center, a 415,000 square-foot, fee-simple retail power center on 13.5 acres, located in Pearl City, Oahu, 12 miles west of downtown Honolulu, in a transaction that is anticipated to close in the second half of 2013. The Property is 98% leased and is anchored by Sam's Club, Regal Theaters, Ross Dress for Less, 24 Hour Fitness, and a soon to be opened Buffalo Wild Wings. The purchase price of $141.5 million is inclusive of the assumption of a $59.3 million mortgage, which matures in September 2016. Closing is subject to various conditions including the lender's approval of the loan assumption.


"The Pearl Highlands acquisition will represent a significant advancement of our strategy to migrate our commercial portfolio back to Hawaii," said Christopher J. Benjamin, A&B's president & chief operating officer. "The addition of Pearl Highlands will boost our total Hawaii commercial square footage over the 2 million square-foot mark—a 25% increase—and will make A&B the second largest retail owner/operator in the state. Of the total purchase price, $82.2 million is expected to be funded with a combination of 1031 and reverse 1031 exchange sale proceeds from transactions involving both mainland commercial assets and non-income producing land in Hawaii."

"Pearl Highlands is a centrally located, well-maintained, institutional-quality asset, anchored by some of the top performing retailers in the state," noted Lance K. Parker, A&B Properties vice president of commercial acquisitions. "It is the nucleus of a 'retail destination' that supports 220,000+ Hawaii residents who live within a 5-mile radius of the center."Benjamin added, "The Pearl Highlands acquisition not only accelerates our Hawaii growth, but it reaffirms our ability to leverage our market knowledge and relationships to acquire significant assets through off-market transactions."
