TIAA-CREF and APG's joint venture targets dominant super-regional malls located in major U.S. markets – generally those within the top quartile of super-regional mall assets – through joint venture acquisitions with major mall operators.

"TIAA-CREF continues to seek opportunities in regional retail properties with strong income streams as part of a well-diversified real estate portfolio," said Phil McAndrews, managing director, TIAA-CREF. "We believe opportunities to invest in high quality assets with experienced operators are attractive for our investors over the long term."

"The acquisition of an interest in this market–leading asset is a compelling addition to the super-regional mall portfolio that APG has assembled globally," said Steven Hason, managing director and co-head of Americas Real Estate at APG Asset Management US.  "We look forward to participating in the ownership and continued success of International Plaza."

"We're delighted to align ourselves with two great institutional partners," said Robert S. Taubman, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Taubman Centers. "This transaction strengthens our balance sheet and highlights the extraordinary growth of this powerhouse asset."

International Plaza is located adjacent to the Tampa International Airport, at the center of the Tampa metroplex. The 1,202,000 square foot center, which opened in September 2001, is anchored by Dillard's, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom. Taubman will continue to lease and manage the center.

The seller was represented by Eastdil Secured, LLC.
