Healthcare Trust of America, Inc. (“HTA”), a self-managed, non-traded, real estate investment trust, announced that in 2009, HTA completed 13 acquisitions comprised of 54 medical office buildings totaling 2,257,634 square feet and one real estate-related asset.
The total purchase price of these acquisitions was approximately $494,259,000. As of December 31, 2009, HTA’s portfolio included 7.4 million square feet of gross leasable area, which is approximately 91% occupied, and brings HTA’s total portfolio to approximately $1.46 billion based on acquisition price. As of July 2009, HTA completed its transition to self-management. During 2009, HTA maintained a patient and prudent acquisition strategy which allowed it to build strong cash position.
