The properties, located in Texas and Massachusetts, include a multi-building Allstate corporate campus, the corporate headquarters for The Men’s Wearhouse and a newly constructed office building housing a multi-specialty medical practice operated by Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates. CCIT invests primarily in strategic single-tenant, income-producing, necessity corporate properties leased to creditworthy tenants under long-term net leases.

“These high-quality assets exemplify CCIT’s investment criteria,” said Robert Micera, chief investment officer for office and industrial at Cole. “Strategic properties with creditworthy corporate tenants, under long-term net leases, are our primary target. These properties are well-located in major MSAs and are mission critical for the corporate tenants.”

With these recent transactions, CCIT’s real estate portfolio consists of 35 wholly-owned properties located in 17 states, totaling approximately 5.6 million square feet and with an aggregate purchase price of approximately $921.1 million. The overall weighted average credit rating of the rated tenants in the portfolio is A-, and the weighted average remaining lease term is nearly 11 years. More than 63% of CCIT’s portfolio consists of tenants rated by Standard & Poor’s, and of those tenants more than 88% are rated investment grade.
