CBL Properties Generates $13.75 Million From Recently Closed Asset Sales


CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CBL Properties (OTCMKTS:CBLAQ) today announced that it closed on two strategic asset sales generating gross proceeds of approximately $13.75 million.

The Company has closed the sale of the former Sears building at Harford Mall in Bel Air, Maryland to SJC Ventures, generating $5.0 million of gross proceeds. SJC Ventures plans to utilize the land for a future grocery-anchored redevelopment.

“The redevelopment of Harford Mall’s former Sears building by SJC Ventures will attract considerable new traffic and activity to Harford Mall, positioning the property for an even greater transformation,” said Stephen Lebovitz, chief executive officer, CBL Properties. “Harford Mall enjoys a prime location with strong demographics and represents a tremendous opportunity to attract new uses and create additional value.”

CBL also closed on the sale of its 64 residential units at Pearland Town Center in Pearland, Texas, generating gross proceeds of $8.75 million to an institutional buyer. The units were developed as part of the original mixed-use project, which opened in 2008. The transaction takes advantage of the favorable demand for multi-family assets and is an attractive monetization of CBL’s investment.

Lebovitz added, “Year-to-date we have completed over $35 million in asset sales, which demonstrates the considerable value embedded in our portfolio. These sales supplement our strong cash position and provides capital for profitable future growth opportunities.”
