Gadsden Growth Properties Acquires $240 Million Mixed-Use Asset in San Francisco Bay Area

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gadsden Growth Properties, Inc., a privately-held real estate
corporation, (“Gadsden”), which signed an agreement in November 2018 to
merge with FC Global Realty Incorporated (OTC Pink: FCRE; TASE: FCRE “FC
Global”), today announced that it has acquired Mission Hills Square, a
mixed-use ground up development that includes 158 residential apartment
units and 53,900 square feet of retail space for approximately $240
million in a combination of cash and stock.

“This acquisition is indicative of our core strategy of buying strong
retail and mixed-use assets in secondary markets with robust economic
and socioeconomic tailwinds,” stated John E. Hartman, Chief Executive
Officer of Gadsden Growth Properties, Inc.
“Fremont is a secondary
city to both San Jose and San Francisco and is more affordable by Bay
Area standards. We believe this asset significantly increases the
Company’s NAV and enhances the overall quality of our portfolio.”

Mission Hills Square is a new mixed-use development located in Fremont,
California and slated for completion in October 2019. Situated in the
foothills of the San Francisco Bay Area along Highway 680, Mission Hills
Square will offer 158 residential apartment units above 53,900 square
feet of commercial retail space. Mission Hills future commercial tenants
are anticipated to include retail stores, sit-down restaurants, and
casual eateries that will serve not only the residents of Mission Hills
but also the populations that live in the surrounding areas, as Mission
Hills Square will be an easily accessible shopping and dining

As a suburb of the San Francisco Bay Area, Mission Hills Square benefits
from a high quality of life, and a well-educated work force boasting
median incomes that exceed $100,000 within a 5-mile radius. The project
is in proximity to major employers, such as Facebook, Apple and other
high-tech companies. In addition, demand for housing, coupled with low
supply and high occupancy in the area, supports an inherent demand for
both apartments and retail.
