									Inland Real Estate Acquisitions, Inc. Announces
the Purchase of Waxahachie Crossing Shopping
Center in Waxahachie, Texas for $15.5 Million
Property acquired on behalf of Inland Diversified Real Estate Trust, Inc.

March 10, 2011 01:34 PM Eastern Time 

OAK BROOK, Ill.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Inland Real Estate Acquisitions, Inc. announced today the
acquisition of the 97,011-square-foot Waxahachie Crossing shopping center in Waxahachie, Texas for
approximately $15.5 million. The property was acquired on behalf of Inland Diversified Real Estate Trust, Inc. and
the purchase was facilitated by Mark Cosenza, vice president of Inland Real Estate Acquisitions.

“Located 28 miles south of Dallas, Waxahachie Crossing benefits from the area’s excellent industrial and distribution
job base, with a nearby Walgreen’s distribution center and major facilities for Owens Corning, Dart Transit, Baylor
Medical and U.S. Aluminum,” Cosenza said. “The surrounding area’s strong demographics and healthy household
incomes are reflected in the center’s high occupancy rate. In addition, the diverse tenant mix allows us to draw
shoppers from 25 miles away or more.” 

The property was constructed in 2009 and tenants include Best Buy, Ross Dress for Less, PetSmart, Famous
Footwear, Maurices and an AT&T cellular store. The shopping center was more than 96 percent occupied at
closing and is shadow-anchored by a Home Depot and a JC Penney, which were not acquired by Inland Real Estate
Acquisitions.

“As our first retail acquisition in Texas, we believe Waxahachie Crossing is a strong addition to our growing
portfolio,” said Barry Lazarus, president and chief operating officer of Inland Diversified. “We believe in the
fundamentals of the Texas market due to a combination of relatively low unemployment, strong growth and a tax-
friendly environment.”
