We accounted for the 2021 acquisition as an asset acquisition. We measured the value of the acquired physical assets (land and building) and in-place leases (absorption costs) by allocating the total cost of the acquisition on a relative fair value basis.

The total cost of the 2021 acquisition was as follows (in thousands):
Contract purchase price $ 48,000 
Capitalized acquisition costs 52 
Total $ 48,052 

We have recorded the total cost of the 2021 acquisition as follows (in thousands):
Land $ 4,798 
Building 42,079 
Absorption costs 1,175 
Total $ 48,052 

The weighted remaining average life for the absorption costs is 4 months.


We have properties under development/redevelopment and held for current or future development. As of September 30, 2021, we have invested $29.4 million, including the cost of acquired land, in a residential development adjacent to Riverside Apartments. In addition, in our residential segment, we continue to capitalize qualifying costs on several other projects with minor development activity necessary to ready each project for its intended use. We placed the remainder of the Trove development costs into service during the first quarter of 2021.

Properties Sold and Held for Sale

We intend to hold our properties for investment with a view to long-term appreciation, to engage in the business of acquiring, developing and owning our properties and to make occasional sales of properties that no longer meet our long-term strategy or return objectives and where market conditions for sale are favorable. The proceeds from the sales may be reinvested into other properties, used to fund development operations or to support other corporate needs or distributed to our shareholders. Depreciation on these properties is discontinued at the time they are classified as held for sale, but operating revenues, operating expenses and interest expense continue to be recognized until the date of sale.
We sold the following properties during 2021 and 2020:

We have fully transferred control of the assets sold in 2020 and 2021 and do not have continuing involvement in their operations.

In June 2021, we entered into a purchase and sale agreement with a single buyer to sell the Office Portfolio for a purchase price of $766.0 million. Upon execution of the purchase and sale agreement, the properties in the Office Portfolio met the criteria for classification as held for sale. We closed on the sale of the Office Portfolio on July 26, 2021, recognizing a loss on sale of real estate of $11.2 million.

In June 2021, we executed a letter of intent to sell the Retail Portfolio. During the 2021 Quarter, we executed a purchase and sale agreement for the sale of our remaining eight retail properties for a purchase price of $168.3 million and closed on the sale on September 22, 2021, recognizing a gain on real estate of $57.7 million.

The dispositions of the Office Portfolio and the Retail Portfolio represent a strategic shift that will have a major effect on our financial results and we have accordingly reported the Office Portfolio and Retail Portfolio as discontinued operations.

As of September 30, 2021, we assessed our properties for impairment and did not recognize any impairment charges during the 2021 Quarter. We applied reasonable estimates and judgments in evaluating each of the properties as of September 30, 2021. Should external or internal circumstances change requiring the need to shorten holding periods or adjust future estimated cash flows from our properties, we could be required to record impairment charges in the future.
