KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Macerich, one of the two companies in a joint venture that owns the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri, announced an "impairment charge" in its 2023 annual report.

In a filing Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Santa Monica, California-based real estate investment trust announced an impairment charge of $101 million on the Country Club Plaza.

The company blamed an increase in its net loss in part on the impairment charge from the Country Club Plaza.

Macerich and Plaza joint partner Taubman Realty Group said last May the non-resource property loan default in the amount of $295.2 million.

The group acquired the Plaza as part of a 2016 transaction.

In the annual report released Monday, Macerich said the joint venture — of which Macerich controls 50.1 percent — is still in negotiations with the lender on the terms of the non-recourse loan.

A non-recourse loan allows the lender to foreclose only on the collateral, not on the value of the loan.

Last October, multiple sources said a Dallas-based developer was interested in acquiring the Country Club Plaza. Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Quinton Lucas visited the developer at a December meeting in Dallas.
