Easterly Government Properties Announces Close of 49,420 SF Facility in Orlando, Florida to Expand Mission-Critical Portfolio


Easterly Government Properties, Inc. (NYSE: DEA) (the "Company" or "Easterly"), a fully integrated real estate investment trust focused primarily on the acquisition, development and management of Class A commercial properties leased to the U.S. Government and its adjacent partners, announced today the closing of the previously announced 49,420 square foot facility 100% leased to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and located in Orlando, Florida ("ICE - Orlando").

ICE - Orlando features a 20-year lease that does not expire until August 2040. The asset helps facilitate the agency's mission to enforce immigration laws and conduct criminal investigations to preserve national security and public safety. These mission-critical operations executed within the facility will directly combat illicit activity including narcotics smuggling, human trafficking, child exploitation, gang violence, money laundering, and other crimes in the Central Florida region.

"This strategic acquisition underscores our commitment to advancing the unwavering, mission-critical U.S. Government operations that fortify the safety of the country," said Darrell Crate, Easterly's Chief Executive Officer. "The closing of this asset further solidifies our external growth trajectory and track record in delivering stable, attractive returns for our shareholders."

With this acquisition, Easterly owns directly or through the Company's joint venture, 93 properties totaling 9.1 million square feet.
