Inland Real Estate Corporation





Back to REIT Performance

Inland Real Estate Corporation (IRC), the first REIT sponsored by Inland Investments and the first nonlisted REIT to be listed on the NYSE, was formed in May 1994. IRC, now known as IRC Retail Centers LLC, is a privately held real estate company owned by funds managed by DRA Advisors LLC that acquires, owns and manages open-air shopping centers primarily in the Central and Southeastern United States. IRC internalized the functions performed by Inland, as the REIT's business manager, in July 2000. As of June 30, 2000, the last full quarter prior to the time that IRC internalized the functions performed by the business manager, the portfolio was comprised of ownership interests in 119 retail properties. IRC shared the Inland name during the time that it was listed on the NYSE solely due to a licensing agreement and was otherwise an independent company.

On June 9, 2004, IRC listed its shares on the NYSE (NYSE:IRC). IRC was self-managed as of the date of the liquidity event. The acquisition of IRC by funds managed by DRA Advisors LLC was completed in March 2016.
