Westphalia Dev. Corp. Reports Third Quarter 2021 Fiscal Results

Westphalia Dev. Corp. (the "Corporation") announced today its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021. Launched in March 2012, the Corporation acquired for development the 310-acre Westphalia Property (the "Property or the "Project") located in Prince George's County, Maryland, United States.

Review of Operations

The Corporation continues to actively seek purchasers and developers for the remaining lands associated with Phases 2 and 3 as well as other more immediate opportunities associated with the Phase 1 retail. The Corporation intends to renegotiate or refinance its senior debt with its lender, WWMN, LLC, and a potential new senior lender. The key activities undertaken by the Corporation during the three-months ended September 30, 2021, were as follows:

Construction Activities

  • Continued construction on the Woodyard Road Interchange project. Construction is on schedule and expected to be completed in June 2022.
  • Continued construction on the Presidential Parkway West project, which is expected to be completed by Q3 2022.

Sales Activities & Financing

  • The Corporation amended the purchase and sale agreement to increase the purchase price for the commercial / industrial land in Phases 2 and 3 of the Project.

The single-family market in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan statistical area, and specifically in the Prince George's County submarket, continues to show strength which has led to increased builders' interest in purchasing raw land for the development and construction of their own lots.

Management remains focused on strategies to maximize the returns of the Project, which include, but are not limited to:

  • The Corporation has been seeking and has collaborated with an additional potential lead senior lender for the project. The potential senior lender continues to conduct its ordinary course due diligence and documentation process, which must be completed prior to any closing. As a result, an extension of the maturity date for the existing financing with WWMN, LLC, the senior secured lender, has been negotiated and executed, extending the maturity date to December 31, 2021.
  • There are three additional sites in which a vertical stratgy is being pursued to work with national or regional retail commercial and senior living builders. The Corporation is evaluating options for consultants to be engaged for this strategy and is seeking partners to build and lease out the two commercial sites and the senior living site.
  • The Corporation continues to work with the local community, County leadership, and internal staff to re-plan additional development within the Westphalia Town Center. The Corporation also continues to work with the various consultants to implement a shift in the project's scope after having received input from those detailed above by reducing the significant retail and office space that had been previously planned and adding residential and other uses.
