Fair Value Disclosures [Abstract]  
The following disclosure of estimated fair value was determined by management using available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. However, considerable judgment is necessary to interpret market data and develop estimated fair value. Accordingly, the estimates presented herein are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could realize on disposition of the assets and liabilities at June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022. The use of different market assumptions and/or estimation methodologies may have a material effect on the estimated fair value amounts.
Cash equivalents, receivables, notes receivables, accounts payable, and accrued expenses and other liabilities are carried at amounts which reasonably approximate their fair values as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022.
The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt, consisting of mortgages, loans payable and other obligations aggregated approximately $1.7 billion and $1.8 billion as compared to the book value of approximately $1.8 billion and $1.9 billion as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively. The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt was valued using level 3 inputs (as provided by ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures). The fair value was estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis valuation based on the borrowing rates currently available to the Company for loans with similar terms and maturities. The fair value of the mortgage debt was determined by discounting the future contractual interest and principal payments by a market rate. Although the Company has determined that the majority of the inputs used to value its derivative financial instruments fall within level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, the credit valuation adjustments associated with its derivative financial instruments utilize level 3 inputs, such as estimates of current credit spreads to evaluate the likelihood of default by itself and its counterparties. The Company has assessed the significance of the impact of the credit valuation adjustments on the overall valuation of its derivative positions and has determined that the credit valuation adjustments are not significant to the overall valuation of its derivative financial instruments. As a result, the Company has determined that its derivative financial instruments valuations in their entirety are classified in level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.
The notes receivable by the Company are presented at the lower of cost basis or net amount expected to be collected in accordance with ASC 326. For its seller-financing note receivable provided to the buyers of the Metropark portfolio, the Company calculated the net present value of contractual cash flows of the total receivable.
The fair value measurements used in the evaluation of the Company’s rental properties for impairment analysis are considered to be Level 3 valuations within the fair value hierarchy, as there are significant unobservable assumptions. Assumptions that were utilized in the fair value calculations include, but are not limited to, discount rates, market capitalization rates, expected lease rental rates, room rental and food and beverage revenue rates, third-party broker information and information from potential buyers, as applicable.
Valuations of real estate identified as held for sale are based on estimated sale prices, net of estimated selling costs, of such property. In the absence of an executed sales agreement with a set sales price, management’s estimate of the net sales price may be based on a number of unobservable assumptions, including, but not limited to, the Company’s estimates of future cash flows, market capitalization rates and discount rates, if applicable. For developable land, an estimated per-unit market value assumption is also considered based on development rights or plans for the land.
As of June 30, 2023, the Company included as held for sale two office properties totaling approximately 0.6 million square feet and several developable land parcels, which are located in Jersey City, Holmdel and Parsippany, New Jersey.
As a result of recent sales contracts in place, the Company determined that the carrying value of one office and three land parcels held for sale were not expected to be recovered from estimated net sales proceeds, and accordingly, during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, recognized impairment charges of $3.6 million and $7.0 million, respectively.
Disclosure about fair value of assets and liabilities is based on pertinent information available to management as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022.
