Griffin Capital and Phillips Edison plans $1.7 billion non-traded REIT
Phillips Edison and Griffin Capital Company are set to launch Phillips Edison Grocery Centre Real Estate Investment Trust III, a $1.7 billion non-traded REIT.

In addition, Phillips Edison Grocery Centre REIT III will offer $200 million of Class A, I and T shares as part of its distribution reinvestment plan, valued at $9.40 per share.

The REIT will target shopping centres that are over 80 percent occupied, have a mix of regional and national tenants and which are anchored by a leading grocery provider in the region, according to the filing.

Investors in certain areas will have to adhere to their own states suitability requirements.

PECO-Griffin REIT Advisor will be advising the on the venture, of which Phillips Edison owns 75 percent and Griffin Capital Company owns 25 percent.

Griffin Capital Securities will act as deal manager.

Both Griffin Capital Company and Phillips Edison have been approached for comment.
