BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 09, 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 the closing on the sale of a legacy asset, the 54-room Super 8 located at 1000 Grand Avenue, Mount Pleasant, IA for $1.85 million. The net proceeds from the sale will be used for general corporate purposes and for future acquisitions of hotels that meet the Company’s new investment strategy.
“Year to date, we have now closed on the sale of 13 legacy hotels including the sale of this Super 8 in Mount Pleasant, IA. These sales have generated a total of $29.3 million in gross proceeds," said Bill Blackham, Condor’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our accelerated capital recycling initiative that commenced in the third quarter last year is on track to result in at least 20 legacy hotels being sold before the end of the year with the net sales proceeds reinvested into higher quality, select-service lodging assets such as the recently acquired downtown Atlanta Aloft and the recently announced purchase contract to acquire the Leawood, KS Aloft. The Company currently has signed contracts to sell 8 additional legacy hotels although there can be no guarantee that all of these transactions will actually close,” continued Mr. Blackham.
