Thursday, September 30, 2021

Oak Brook, Ill. – Inland Real Estate Acquisitions, LLC (“Inland Acquisitions”), the purchasing arm of The Inland Real Estate Group of Companies, Inc. (“Inland” or “the company”), announced today that it has negotiated and closed more than 3,700 deals on behalf of Inland affiliates totaling more than $50 billion of commercial real estate across the nation since the company’s inception.

“Inland’s 3,700 purchases are mostly individual transactions, which are rare for bigger companies,” commented Joe Cosenza, vice chairman of The Inland Real Estate Group, LLC and president of Inland Real Estate Acquisitions, LLC. “Throughout all the economic cycles over the last half century one thing holds true: if I wouldn’t rent it, live in it or shop at it, then I wouldn’t consider acquiring the property.”

A few of the largest acquisitions done to-date by Inland Acquisitions include:

  • $740 million, SunTrust Bank Branches
  • $600 million, Amazon Distribution Centers
  • More than 150 Walmart Stores

Inland has collectively purchased $28 billion in retail, $8 billion in apartments, $4 billion in hotels, $2 billion in industrial, $600 million in medical office, $600 million in self-storage, and $7 billion in various asset classes.
