As of December 31, 2016, the Company owned a controlling interest in 65 Malls and non-controlling interests in nine Malls. The Malls are located in middle markets. The Malls are generally anchored by over two or more department stores and a range of mall stores. Anchor tenants own or lease their stores and non-anchor stores lease their locations. Additional freestanding stores and restaurants that either own or lease their stores are typically located along the perimeter of the Malls' parking areas. The Company classifies its regional Malls into Stabilized Malls, Non-stabilized Malls and Excluded malls. Its Stabilized Malls are the malls that have completed their initial lease-up and have been open for more than three complete calendar years. Its Non-stabilized Malls are the Malls that are in their initial lease-up phase. The Company excludes Malls from its core portfolio if they fall in three categories: Lender Malls, Repositioning Malls and Minority Interest Malls.
Lender Malls are the properties for which the Company is working or intend to work with the lender on a restructure of the terms of the loan secured by the Property or convey the secured Property to the lender. Repositioning Malls are the Malls that are being repositioned or where the Company has determined that the format of the property no longer represents the best use of the Property and the Company is in the process of evaluating alternative strategies for the Property. This may include redevelopment or an alternative retail or non-retail format, or after evaluating alternative strategies for the Property, the Company may determine that the Property no longer meets the Company's criteria for long-term investment. Minority Interest Malls are the malls in which the Company has 25% or less ownership interest. As of December 31, 2016, the Company had two Malls classified as Minority Interest Malls. As of December 31, 2016, the Malls had approximately 6,360 Mall stores.
As of December 31, 2016, the Company owned a controlling interest in 20 Associated Centers and a non-controlling interest in three Associated Centers. Associated Centers are retail properties that are adjacent to a regional mall complex and include one or more Anchors, or big box retailers, along with smaller tenants. Anchor tenants typically include tenants, such as T.J. Maxx, Target, Kohl's and Bed Bath & Beyond.
As of December 31, 2016, the Company owned a controlling interest in four Community Centers and a non-controlling interest in five Community Centers. Community Centers' customers include supermarkets, or value-priced stores. The tenants at the Company's Community Centers offer necessities, value-oriented and convenience merchandise.
