DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., July 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. (NYSE American: CTO) (the “Company”) today announced the acquisition of an approximately 64,000 square foot, single-tenant office property in Reston, Virginia (the “Reston Property”) for approximately $18.6 million, or approximately $289 per square foot. The Reston Property is situated on approximately 3 acres and is 100% leased to a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics Corporation, one of the largest defense contractors in the world. The remaining lease term is approximately 10 years and includes annual rent escalations. In 2018, the Reston Property underwent a complete renovation at a cost of approximately $17 million, the majority of which was paid for by the tenant. The initial investment yield is slightly below the mid-point of the Company’s 2019 guidance for income property acquisitions. The transaction is expected to be part of a 1031 like-kind exchange.
The Reston Property, known as Reston Metro Center II, is located at 12180 Sunrise Valley Drive with direct frontage along the Dulles Toll Road and will be served by the future Reston Town Center Metrorail Station that is scheduled to open in 2020. Additionally, the Reston Property is located just 1.6 miles from Reston Town Center and 0.5 miles from Brookfield Properties’ Halley Rise development, which includes 3.5 million square feet of housing, retail, office, public green spaces and a new 80,000 square foot Wegmans grocery store.
Including the Reston Property, the Company has invested approximately $76 million year-to-date or approximately 76% of the mid-point of the Company’s 2019 guidance for the acquisition of income-producing assets. The investments year-to-date consist of seven single-tenant properties located in six different states with a weighted average cap rate in-line with the mid-point of the Company’s 2019 guidance.
