Press release

Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield Sells Westfield Trumbull and South Shore Shopping Centres for $196 Mn

Transaction takes URW’s total US deleveraging proceeds to $1.3 Bn1

Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (“URW”) today announced that as of Friday, December 30th, 2022 it has completed the sale of Westfield Trumbull located in Trumbull, Connecticut and Westfield South Shore located in Bay Shore, New York to a commercial real estate investment firm.

The combined gross sale price of these wholly owned regional assets at $196 Mn is equal to their gross market value, and reflects an initial yield of 9.5% on the in-place NOI. Both assets are B+-rated2 properties, with Trumbull being 125,000 sqm and 85% leased, and South Shore being 94,400 sqm and 89% leased.

With this transaction, URW has made $1.3 Bn in total proceeds to date from the planned radical reduction of its financial exposure to the US, including the previously announced sales of The Village, Westfield Santa Anita, the Promenade development parcel, and the Palisade residential building, as well as the ownership transfer of five other regional properties.
