CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 19, 2015) - JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally-managed, non-listed, daily valued perpetual life REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX) (NASDAQ: ZIPTMX) (NASDAQ: ZIPIAX) (NASDAQ: ZIPIMX), today announced it acquired Skokie Commons, a newly constructed grocery-anchored shopping center located in Skokie, IL. The 93,000 square foot center is 97 percent leased, with Mariano's supermarket, a leading specialty grocer in the Chicago market, as the anchor tenant. Strong national tenants Starbucks, Bank of America, Long Horn Steakhouse, and Noodles & Company further enhance the ongoing stability of the property. The purchase price was approximately $48.5 million. The acquisition was financed at approximately 50 percent loan to value with a fixed interest rate loan at 3.31 percent for 10 years.

"This investment provides exposure to a major metropolitan city and builds upon our other recent grocery anchored acquisitions in California and Texas," commented Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust. "Skokie Commons is anchored by a strong, New Age grocer in a demographic area ranking in the top five percent in population density."

Skokie Commons is Mariano's 30th store in the Chicagoland market and the entire chain is considered to be a cutting edge grocer producing high volumes of sales on a per store basis. Positioned at a major intersection, the center is strategically located just outside Chicago in an infill location within a developing retail hub that will draw customers from several neighboring towns.
