MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gladstone Commercial Corporation (NASDAQ:GOOD) (“Gladstone Commercial”) announced today that it completed the acquisition of a 103,334 square foot, single-tenant Class-A office building located in the Philadelphia, PA suburb of King of Prussia for $25.5 million at an average cap rate of 8.7%.
The acquisition of this property, leased for 15 years to Radial, Inc. (“Radial”), illustrates Gladstone Commercial’s commitment to acquiring mission-critical real estate leased to quality tenants. Radial provides logistics and related services to support traditional retailers’ and consumer products companies’ e-commerce business. Radial is the recently combined operations of eBay Enterprise and Innotrac. The property serves as Radial’s corporate headquarters.
“This is our first acquisition in the King of Prussia submarket of Philadelphia, which continues our strategic expansion into both primary and strong secondary markets in the U.S.,” said Matt Tucker, Managing Director of Gladstone Commercial. “The 15-year triple-net lease to Radial will provide attractive stable returns to our investors over the long term given the attributes of the real estate and strong macroeconomic drivers of the Philadelphia economy.”
Bob Cutlip, President of Gladstone Commercial, agreed, “This transaction is an excellent acquisition in a sound market and continues our historical program of placing attractive fixed rate debt on our properties. This strategy protects our going-forward returns should interest rates rise.”
