Weingarten Realty Investors announces the acquisition of Urban Seattle Property from Vulcan Real Estate

HOUSTON, 2016-Mar-04 — /EPR Retail News/ — Weingarten Realty Investors (NYSE: WRI), a leading owner, manager and developer of shopping centers, announced today that it acquired the retail component of 2200 Westlake, located at 2200 Westlake Avenue in Seattle, Washington from Vulcan Real Estate. The average household income and population in the 3-mile trade area is $99,000 and 220,000, respectively. The property was purchased in a joint venture between Weingarten Realty and Bouwinvest (the “Venture”) in which WRI will hold a 65.7% interest. Weingarten’s investment is $43.5 million.

2200 Westlake is a mixed-use, vertically-integrated property anchored by Whole Foods Market. The complex also contains an income producing parking garage, an 11-story 153-room five-star Pan Pacific hotel, and residential condos. The Venture purchased 73,800 square feet of retail including the Whole Foods Market and 412 parking stalls. Vulcan maintains ownership of the hotel.

The property is located in the high-growth neighborhood of South Lake Union. The area is home to Amazon and its existing 4 million square feet of office space and one block away from the multi-million square foot headquarters campus now under construction. Over 4,000 new residential units are reportedly planned or proposed in the South Lake Union area served by 2200 Westlake.

The purchase is part of an off-market transaction in which Vulcan purchased Weingarten’s Promenade 23, a high-profile property in the Central District of Seattle for $30.9 million. Vulcan has future plans to redevelop part of the existing center as a mixed-use project that will include approximately 570 units of rental housing in two five to seven-story buildings as well as ground-floor retail.

“We are extremely excited about the completion of this transaction with Vulcan. Our team, with market expertise, sourced and negotiated this complex transaction which creates unique opportunities for both companies. The acquisition of 2200 Westlake complements our existing Seattle portfolio and Vulcan’s purchase of Promenade 23 fits well into their expansion plans, so it is definitely a win-win for both companies,” said Drew Alexander, President and Chief Executive Officer.
