Glimcher Realty Trust, (NYSE:GRT), one of the country’s premier retail REITs, announced that the purchase of the 80% indirect ownership interest in Pearlridge Center in Honolulu, Hawaii from affiliates of Blackstone Real Estate Partners VI (“Blackstone”) was completed on May 9, 2012. The purchase price for this ownership interest was approximately $289.4 million including Blackstone’s pro-rata share of the $175 million mortgage debt currently encumbering the property, resulting in a cash purchase price for Blackstone’s interest of approximately $149.4 million.

The Property has in-line tenant sales of nearly $500 per square foot and an occupancy rate of more than 99%.
