MVP REIT Acquires 7-Story, 775-Space Parking Garage in Downtown Cincinnati for $15 Million

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MVP REIT, Inc. announced today that the company acquired a 70.01 percent tenant-in-common interest in Tower Place Parking Garage, a seven-story, 775-space parking garage located in downtown Cincinnati. The parking garage was purchased for an aggregate of $15 million and closed on December 9.

Located at 400 Race St., the parking garage is connected to a 13-story, 520,000-square-foot mixed-use development encompassing a Hyatt Regency Hotel and retail stores. The garage is a short walk from Paul Brown Stadium, home of the National Football League's Cincinnati Bengals, and Great American Ball Park, home of Major League Baseball's Cincinnati Reds.

MVP REIT acquired the garage with a recently signed 10-year lease in place with SP+, formerly known as Standard Parking. The Standard Parking and Central Parking brands of SP+ operate approximately 4,200 parking facilities with more than 2.1 million parking spaces in hundreds of cities across North America, including parking-related and shuttle bus operations serving more than 75 airports.

"This garage benefits from its premium location in a well-visited area near major attractions, as well as its long-term net lease to a quality operator," said Mike Shustek, chairman and chief executive officer of MVP REIT.

The acquisition was financed through a 4.25 percent fixed-rate, 10-year loan of $9 million.
