“Despite the cyclical challenges and long-term secular shifts impacting the retailing industry, our company remains well positioned, as indicated by our solid first quarter results,” stated Kenneth F. Bernstein, President and CEO of Acadia Realty Trust. “First, our high-quality core portfolio contains several in-process value-creation opportunities; at the same time, this portfolio’s urban and street-retail focus, in a handful of gateway cities, and its strong tenancies, provide significant downside protection. Additionally, our complementary fund platform remains active on all fronts, with continued, profitable dispositions and plenty of dry powder, enabling us to remain opportunistic in today’s dislocated marketplace.”
