The long term, triple-net lease with Walgreens, an investment grade tenant and the center's prime location on The Strip in Las Vegas in combination with the recently closed financing with Wells Fargo will enable this investment to generate very attractive cash flows and returns for CPA®:17 - Global and its investors."
