Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Potential Acquisition of 17600 Gillette
On May 13, 2010, Hines Global REIT Properties LP, a subsidiary of Hines Global REIT, Inc. ("Hines Global") entered into a contract to acquire 17600 Gillette, a two-story office building located in the Orange County Airport Area of Irvine, California. The seller, AJ Irvine Owner Corporation, is not affiliated with Hines Global or its affiliates. 17600 Gillette consists of 98,925 square feet of rentable area that is 100% leased to DraftFCB, Inc., an advertising agency, under a lease which expires in March 2016. The contract purchase price for 17600 Gillette is expected to be approximately $20.8 million, exclusive of transaction costs, financing fees and working capital reserves. Hines Global expects to fund the acquisition using proceeds from its current public offering. Hines Global expects the closing of this acquisition to occur on or about June 7, 2010, subject to a number of closing conditions. There is no guarantee that this acquisition will be consummated, and if Hines Global elects not to close on the acquisition of 17600 Gillette, it may forfeit its $500,000 earnest money deposit. This description is qualified in its entirety by Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, which is incorporated herein by reference.

Statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including intentions, beliefs, expectations or projections relating to the potential acquisition of the property described herein and funding sources for the same, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
