MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gladstone Commercial Corporation (NASDAQ:GOOD) (the “Company” or “Gladstone Commercial”), a real estate investment trust focused on acquiring, owning and operating net leased office and industrial properties, announced today that during 2015 it successfully concluded 14 of 16 leases set to expire in 2015 and 2016 with leasing activity exceeding 1.0 million square feet. Gladstone Commercial’s portfolio occupancy is 97.3%.
“I am proud of our team’s successful leasing efforts during a year in which we experienced the largest number of lease expirations in our history,” said Bob Cutlip, President of Gladstone Commercial. “We believe that our same store rent over the next four years will be very stable because only 5% of forecasted rental income is expiring between the years 2016 and 2019. This period of limited lease expirations will allow us to focus our capital on buying more buildings in our core markets.”
