MILL VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Four Corners Property Trust (NYSE:FCPT), a real estate investment trust primarily engaged in the ownership and acquisition of high-quality, net-leased restaurant and retail properties (“FCPT” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that it has signed a definitive agreement for the purchase of 7 outparcel properties for $17.1 million. The transaction was priced at a cap rate in range with previous FCPT transactions. The portfolio includes six single tenant restaurant properties and one non-restaurant retail property (AT&T, BJ’s Brewhouse, Hook & Reel, IHOP, Krispy Kreme, Taco Bell, and an additional restaurant). FCPT expects the acquisition to close in the third quarter of 2022, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.
The properties share similar qualities with FCPT’s existing outparcel assets and have contractual rent stream growth, net-lease structures, and strong tenancy with credit-worthy operators. The retail outparcels are located within a highly trafficked and populated corridor in El Paso, Texas. Each property has a separate, individual lease and the leases have a current weighted average remaining term of approximately five years.
Bill Lenehan, CEO of Four Corners Property Trust, stated: “We are excited to continue opportunistically acquiring outparcel real estate leased to strong credit operators. Our team has developed an expertise in this category and will continue to grow our pipeline with low-rent outparcel properties in dense retail centers.”
