"The portfolio includes 12.7 million sq. ft. of shopping center space that is scattered throughout the U.S.

...While the pension fund will consider bids for the whole portfolio, sources believe that it will ultimately be sold to multiple buyers. Pension funds, REITs, foreign investors and private investors are expected to bid on the properties, most of which are located in the mid-Atlantic region."
