Revenue Recognition and Deferred Revenue [Abstract]  
Deferred Rents Receivable



The Company is the lessor under six operating leases which contain rent holidays, escalating rents over time, options to renew, requirements to pay property taxes, insurance and/or maintenance costs, and contingent rental payments based on a percentage of monthly tenant revenues. The Company is not the lessor to any finance leases.


The Company recognizes fixed rental receipts from such lease agreements on a straight-line basis over the expected lease term. Differences between amounts received and amounts recognized are recorded under Deferred Rents Receivable on the balance sheet. Contingent rentals are recognized only after tenants’ revenues are finalized and if such revenues exceed certain minimum levels.


The Company leases the following owned properties:


  Delaware – a 45,000 square foot facility purchased in September 2016 and built into a cannabis cultivation, processing, and dispensary facility which is leased to a cannabis-licensed client occupying 100% of the space under a 20-year triple net lease expiring in 2035.
  Illinois – two 3,400 square foot free-standing retail dispensaries in the cities of Anna and Harrisburg and leased to two licensed cannabis dispensary clients each under a 20-year lease expiring in 2036.
  Maryland – a 180,000 square foot former manufacturing facility purchased January 2017 and rehabilitated by the Company into a cultivation and processing facility which is leased to a licensed cannabis client under a 20-year triple net lease that started in January 2018.
  Massachusetts – a 138,000 square foot industrial property of which approximately half of the available square footage is leased to a non-cannabis manufacturing company under a five-year lease.


The Company subleases the following property:


  Delaware – 4,000 square feet of retail space in a multi-use building space which the Company developed into a cannabis dispensary which is subleased to its cannabis-licensed client under a under a five-year triple net lease with a five-year option to extend.


As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, cumulative fixed rental receipts under such leases approximated $6.4 million and $5.4 million, respectively, compared to revenue recognized on a straight-line basis of approximately $8.5 million and $7.5 million. Accordingly, the deferred rents receivable balances at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 approximated $2.1 million and at the end of both periods.
