Shopping center REIT KIMCO Realty (NYSE: KIM  ) announced yesterday that it sold to an affiliate of Starwood Capital Group its InTown Suites company and related real estate assets for $735 million, including $609 million of existing mortgage debt. Upon closing, KIMCO realized approximately $103 million in proceeds.

With a book value of approximately $83 million, the InTown Suites portion of its portfolio represented the REIT's single largest remaining non-retail investment. It consisted of a portfolio of 138 extended-stay properties with approximately 18,000 rooms across 21 states in which KIMCO held a 75% interest through a joint venture.

KIMCO's non-retail investment balance will now be approximately $200 million, or less than 2% of its gross assets, the lowest level since the company initiated the monetization of its non-retail investments in 2010.

Citigroup served as the financial advisor on the sale to the owner of the portfolio, InTown Hospitality Investors.

    Another interesting sale. It seems these companies aren't shy about selling to tighten up their book.

    Kimco, First Potomac, & GE Capital recently. Also highly respected Boston Props is reported to have the Times Square Tower on the block for around a billion, after Carlyle Group was thought to have sold a nearby prop for $1.3B.

    Maybe something to keep an eye on.
