American Realty Advisors Acquires 278,747 SF Retail Center in Miami, Florida

GLENDALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 30, 2007 -- American Realty Advisors is pleased to announce that it has completed its acquisition of Kendall Mall, a Class A shopping center located in a densely populated submarket of Miami, Florida. Anchored by JCPenney Home Store, Staples and one of Florida's dominant grocers, the Property is fully leased to a diversified roster of national tenants including CVS, Subway, Blockbuster, Starbucks, and Bally Total Fitness and also encompasses an outparcel ground leased to Bank of America. The Property is situated at the intersection of North Kendall Drive and 107th Avenue and enjoys excellent visibility and high traffic volume. In 1996, the Property underwent renovation, which included a full redevelopment of the facade and expansion of the grocer anchor space. The acquisition was completed on behalf of one of the firm's commingled funds and marks American's fourth retail investment in Florida.

Greg Blomstrand, Principal and Managing Director of Portfolio Management, stated, "In the current environment where opportunities for well-positioned retail properties of the quality represented by Kendall are few, American's acquisition of this outstanding high-profile property, located in a strong retail growth market, represents excellent potential for increased long-term value to our portfolio."
