During 2010 we continued to execute on our strategy of repositioning our holdings toward properties inside the Beltway, near major transportation nodes and in areas with strong employment drivers and superior growth demographics. Our portfolio repositioning has been, and will continue to be, funded with proceeds from the disposition of properties that no longer meet our investment criteria, equity, and debt or cash on hand. We have a strong interest in refining our diversified property holdings to focus on high quality office, medical office, retail and multifamily. We are also exploring the sale of industrial and flex properties to facilitate this long term strategy, said George Skip McKenzie, President and Chief Executive Officer of WRIT.
Acquisitions and Dispositions
In the fourth quarter, the Company sold an office building and three industrial properties that no longer fit into the Companys long term growth plan. The Ridges, a 104,000 square foot office building in Gaithersburg, Maryland was sold for $27.5 million. The sale generated a net book gain of $4.4 million and produced an unleveraged internal rate of return of 11% over the four year holding period. In a separate transaction, WRIT completed the sale of three industrial properties, Ammendale I and II and Amvax, totaling 305,000 square feet in Beltsville, Maryland for $23.0 million and a net book gain of $9.2 million.
