Inland Western Retail Real Estate Trust Inc. has purchased its first office property, a three-building complex in Winston-Salem, N.C. The 501,064-square-foot office property, which Inland Western bought for $60 million, features an 18-story north tower, a six-story south tower and a two-story daycare center. The buildings recently underwent a $7 million renovation, and millions more worth of improvements are still underway. The buildings, which share the address of 500 W. 5th St. in downtown Winston-Salem, will be leased by its former owner, GMAC Insurance Management Corp., for a period of 10 years under a triple net lease.  United Trust Fund represented the seller, UTF Winston-Salem LLC, in negotiations. Oak Brook, Ill.-based Inland Western, which is a public non-listed real estate investment trust, focuses primarily on retail properties. However, the company is structured so that it can buy a broad range of properties. *** What's your opinion? Send your Letter to the Edito...
