Apple REIT Nine has struck agreements to acquire 10 hotels with 1,289 rooms, including three properties under construction or development, for $150.8 million.

The Richmond, Va., REIT also signed a ground lease for one acre in downtown Richmond where it plans to build two hotels. The lease runs through 2098 and requires annual rent of $300,000, with payments starting after construction of the hotels begins.

The 10 hotels it agreed to buy consist of Hampton Inn hotels in Rogers, Ark., St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo.; Hilton Garden Inns in Lafayette, La., and West Monroe, La., and a Fairfield Inn & Suites in Jacksonville, N.C.

The other properties are Hilton Garden Inns that are under construction in Silver Spring, Md., and Holly Spring, N.C.; a SpringHill Suites being built in Lafayette, La., and a Courtyard by Marriott in Santa Ana, Calif., which has an application pending for a construction permit.

The three completed Hampton Inn properties have $21 million of debt that Apple Nine has agreed to assume. The loans have interest rates that range from 5.2 percent to 5.5 percent and mature in late 2015.

Each of the hotels under agreement has between 103 and 155 rooms except for the 79-room Jacksonville property and the 190-room Hampton Inn in St Louis

Apple Nine owns 45 hotels with 5,533 rooms that are in 14 states and include a 169-room Embassy Suites in Anchorage, Alaska.

The REIT, whose shares do not trade on any exchange, was launched in 2007 by a group led by Glade M. Knight, a founder of Cornerstone Realty Income Trust, a public apartment REIT that was sold in 2004 to Colonial Properties Trust.
