Agellan said it was forming the REIT to own and operate a diversified portfolio of industrial, office and retail properties in the United States and Canada, although it has not yet determined how much it will seek to raise.

The REIT plans to name Derek Dermott to serve as president and use Agellan Capital Partners Inc. (ACPI) as the asset manager of the properties it acquires.

Founded in 2003, ACPI has acquired more $1.3 billion of commercial real estate assets on behalf of its clients and has managed commercial real estate assets totaling up to 8 million square feet. ACPI currently acts as the asset manager of 22 of the 23 initial properties slated for inclusion in the REIT.

Fuquay Crossing was purchased for $13.1 million (about $105/square foot). The asset is 94% occupied, anchored by a Kroger grocery store on a long-term lease.

To date, Slate U.S. Opportunity (# 1) Realty has acquired nine assets since completing its initial public offering in April 2012. The trust was established for the primary purpose of indirectly acquiring, owning and leasing a portfolio of diversified revenue-producing commercial real estate properties in the U.S. with a focus on anchored retail properties.
