(1)Included in the line entitled “investment in unconsolidated real estate joint ventures” on our consolidated balance sheets.
(2)Our investment in B RE COPT DC JV II LLC was lower than our share of the joint venture’s equity by $7.3 million as of June 30, 2021 and $7.4 million as of December 31, 2020 due to a difference between our cost basis and our share of the joint venture’s underlying equity in its net assets. We recognize adjustments to our share of the joint venture’s earnings and losses resulting from this basis difference in the underlying assets of the joint venture.As described further in Note 4, on June 2, 2021, we sold a 90% interest in two data center shell properties in Northern Virginia and retained a 10% interest in the properties through B RE COPT DC JV III LLC, a newly-formed joint venture. We concluded that the joint venture is a variable interest entity. Under the terms of the joint venture agreement, we and our partner receive returns in proportion to our investments, and our maximum exposure to losses is limited to our investment, subject to certain indemnification obligations with respect to any nonrecourse debt secured by the properties. The nature of our involvement in the activities of the joint venture does not give us power over decisions that significantly affect its economic performance.
