Inland Real Estate Corp. acquired The Point at Clark, a 95,455-square-foot multi-level retail center in Chicago for approximately $28.8 million. The $28.8 million price tag excludes closing costs and adjustments. Inland will contribute the center to its previously announced joint venture with PGGM, a Dutch pension fund administrator and asset manager.

Inland financed the acquisition with draws under its $150 million line of credit and cash on hand. The company plans to obtain property-level financing on the currently unencumbered center. It will use net proceeds from the loan to repay advances made under its credit facility to acquire the property. It will also use PGGM’s equity contribution of 45 percent to further reduce its outstanding balance.

The Point at Clark was completed in 1996. The center is 100 percent financially occupied and features tenants including DSW Shoe Warehouse, Marshalls and Michaels. It comes with parking premises for 175 cars.

“We believe The Point at Clark, located within a bustling retail corridor with high barriers to entry, is an irreplaceable asset in the trade area,” said Mark E. Zalatoris, president and CEO of Inland Real Estate Corp., in a statement. “The contribution of this newly acquired asset to the PGGM joint venture is an exciting way to launch this investment vehicle through which we expect to increase our assets under management and grow shareholder value over time.”
