NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE:GPT), a real estate investment trust, announced today that it closed on the sale of one wholly owned single-tenant office building in Coventry, United Kingdom for gross proceeds of £9.0 million. In addition, the Company disposed of its 80% interest in a single-tenant logistics building located in Rugby, United Kingdom for pro rata gross proceeds of £12.0 million. Prior to the sales, the Company completed a new lease with a multinational utility company at the Coventry property and a renewal with a global logistics provider at the Rugby property. The weighted average remaining lease term for the two sold properties was 9.9 years at closing.

With these dispositions, the Company has sold over $1.5 billion of single and multi-tenant assets in the United States and Europe in 2016. These property sales are a part of the Company’s previously announced plan to dispose of select non-core assets following the merger with Chambers Street Properties.
