WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Easterly Government Properties, Inc. (NYSE: DEA), 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, announced today that it has sold its 59,322-square
foot U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facility located in Chula
Vista, California (“CBP – Chula Vista”).

Constructed in 1998, CBP – Chula Vista is a build-to-suit property that
serves as the San Diego Sector Headquarters. The facility covers all of
San Diego County and oversees eight CBP stations in various submarkets
for total coverage of 7,000 square miles. The facility is 100% occupied
by CBP and the lease was recently renewed for a 10-year term, expiring
in 2028.

“CBP – Chula Vista was acquired as part of our formation transactions at
the time of our initial public offering,” said William C. Trimble, III,
Easterly’s Chief Executive Officer. “With a recently executed lease
renewal, we were well poised to earn an attractive yield on this
disposition while simultaneously lowering the average age of the
Company’s overall portfolio.”

With the recently announced purchases of JSC – Suffolk and FBI – New
Orleans, and the sale of CBP – Chula Vista, Easterly now owns 66
properties totaling 6.1 million square feet and maintains 100% portfolio
occupancy.
