Service Properties Trust Completes the Sale of a Las Vegas Office Building for $57 million

October 30, 2019 GMT

NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 30, 2019--

Service Properties Trust (Nasdaq: SVC) today announced it has completed the sale of a 138,558 square foot office property located at 1505 South Pavilion Center in Las Vegas, Nevada for $57.0 million, or approximately $411 per square foot. The sale is part of SVC’s previously announced disposition plan to sell up to $500 million of assets in connection with the acquisition of a net lease service retail portfolio from Spirit MTA REIT.

“The disposition of 1505 South Pavilion Center is the first step in executing on the company’s strategy to sell certain non-core assets acquired as part of the SMTA transaction,” said John Murray, Service Properties Trust’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The disposition proceeds, which represent a 6.4% capitalization rate and a record price per square foot for the Las Vegas office market, will be used to reduce the company’s leverage.”

Service Properties Trust is a real estate investment trust, or REIT, which owns a diverse portfolio of hotels and net lease service and necessity-based retail properties located in 45 states, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and Canada. SVC’s properties are operated under long term management or lease agreements. SVC is managed by the operating subsidiary of The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR), an alternative asset management company that is headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts.
