BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Condor Hospitality Trust, Inc. (NASDAQ:CDOR), a hotel-focused real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered and incorporated in the state of Maryland, today announced that it has executed an agreement to purchase the 156 room Aloft Leawood-Overland Park located within Park Place Village at 11620 Ash Street, Leawood, KS, 66211. The purchase price for the hotel is $22,500,000. The hotel will be managed by Presidian Hotels and Resorts.
“The Aloft Leawood is a high quality hotel that fits squarely within our targeted investment strategy of acquiring premium-branded select-service assets in major secondary markets, ranked as the 21st through 60th largest by population. Kansas City is the 30th largest MSA, and the Aloft Leawood is attractively located in the Park Place Village lifestyle center adjacent to Sprint’s World Headquarters Campus and AMC Theatres’ operational headquarters. Since the hotel’s opening in 2009, guests at the Aloft have had the benefit of being contiguous to a lifestyle center that includes restaurant and retail venues serving the hotel, the adjacent office complexes, and the community in general. We are very excited to add this asset, along with the Atlanta Aloft closed last week, to our growing portfolio of new investment platform hotels,” Bill Blackham, Condor’s Chief Executive Officer stated.
Refer to the Company’s Form 8-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a further description of the terms of the transaction. The closing of the acquisition of the hotel is expected to occur late third quarter or early fourth quarter, but is subject to customary closing conditions including accuracy of representations and warranties and compliance with covenants and obligations.
