Washington Prime Group is the latest domino to fall in the retail real estate / real estate investment trust sector as retailers filed for bankruptcy at a historic rate in 2020 rejecting leases and halting rental payments for months on end even when leases were assumed.

Washington Prime Group listed estimated assets of $4 billion and debt of almost $3.5 billion. The real estate investment trust said it had secured a bankruptcy loan of as much as $100 million to fund operations during court proceedings, which financing is subject to court approval. The case is Washington Prime Group Inc., 21-31948, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (Houston).
