Innovative Industrial Buys Gold Flora's Property For $51 Million

Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc. (IIP)(NYSE: IIPR) has purchased a 201,000 square foot industrial property in Desert Hot Springs, California from Gold Flora, LLC for $51 million. Gold Flora will then lease the building and is expected to complete additional improvements for the property, for which Innovative Industrial has agreed to provide reimbursement of up to $9.0 million. Assuming full reimbursement for the improvements, IIP said its total investment in the property is expected to be $60.0 million.

“We are excited to welcome Laurie and the Gold Flora team as our newest tenant partner,” said Paul Smithers, President and Chief Executive Officer of IIP. “Gold Flora has established a strong reputation and presence in the largest regulated cannabis market in the world, California, and we look forward to supporting them as a long-term real estate capital partner for many years to come, as they continue to expand the breadth of their operations and reach throughout the state.”

Gold Flora was founded in 2017 and is a vertically integrated operator in California, including cultivation, manufacturing, distribution and retail. The company’s team includes Chief Executive Officer Laurie Holcomb, Chief Operations Officer Greg Gamet, Chief Financial Officer Chris Martin and Chief Cultivation Officer Phillip Hague. Earlier this year, Gold Flora announced a strategic partnership with Stately Brands, including the establishment of an advisory board to Gold Flora and financing to further expand Gold Flora’s retail operations, brands, and distribution network.

“Teaming with IIP on this transaction strategically unlocks capital for us as we focus on our continued growth in California, and we look forward to working with the IIP team for many years to come as our go-to real estate capital provider,” said Laurie Holcomb, Chief Executive Officer of Gold Flora. “In a few short years, I am proud of what our team at Gold Flora has accomplished, with our best-in-class line of products and strategic relationships that I believe will continue to distinguish us in the California marketplace, as we look to expand our footprint and distribution throughout the state.”

As of October 18, IIP now owns 76 properties located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington, representing a total of approximately 7.5 million rentable square feet (including approximately 2.8 million rentable square feet under development/redevelopment), which were 100% leased with a weighted-average remaining lease term of approximately 16.7 years. In addition to that, IIP said it has committed approximately $1.9 billion across its portfolio, including capital invested to date (excluding transaction costs) and additional capital commitments to fund future construction and tenant improvements at IIP’s properties.
