CHICAGO-Prime Group Realty Trust has closed its $133-million sale of nine suburban office properties to Blackstone Real Estate Advisors, L.P., which the financially strapped REIT considered non-core assets. Prime Group, which realizes about $19 million in net proceeds to partially satisfy lenders, sheds 40% of its suburban office portfolio with the 1.4-million-sf deal.

The properties generated more than $20 million in annual rent, but at $14.59 per sf, was 11% below the overall average for the REIT’s office portfolio.
