Exhibit 99.1


September 23, 2021

Dear Investor,

We are writing to give you an update on the progress toward the liquidation of HGR Liquidating Trust (the “Trust”), formerly Hines Global REIT, Inc.

Since we determined our new estimated net asset value (“NAV”) of $2.09 per unit in March 2021, we have been hard at work with our continued marketing and disposition efforts. We are pleased to report we completed the sale of The Rim for a contract sale price of $219.7 million. We are actively marketing the remaining four properties in the portfolio – two international office properties and two U.S. retail properties – and remain committed to completing the sale of these properties and distributing the sales proceeds in the most efficient manner possible to maximize value for our investors.

Based on current estimates, we do not expect the Trust to generate taxable income to investors for 2021. However, this is subject to change to the extent gains on assets sold are higher than currently estimated. As a reminder, for tax purposes, unitholders will be taxed based on their share of all income, gains, loss deductions and credits of the Trust.

As a result of our recent activities, the Trust’s board of trustees has declared a special distribution of $0.80 per unit to be processed on or around September 29th to unitholders of record as of September 29, 2021. After this special distribution is paid, we will have paid aggregate distributions of $13.89 per unit to holders who have been invested since the inception of Hines Global REIT, Inc. The following table provides more information with respect to distributions paid and payable to investors since inception:

Regular operating distributions paid from inception through June 2018
Special distributions paid in 2018 and 20
Special distribution paid in July 20
Special distribution paid in September 2020
Special distribution payable in September 2021

Additionally, as the following table illustrates, the special distribution of $0.80 per unit will reduce investors’ remaining investment in the Trust. Therefore, after the special distribution, the NAV will be $1.29 per unit.

We are encouraged by the interest in the remaining properties that we’ve received through the marketing process and are hopeful we’ll have additional information to share with you in the coming months. We appreciate your continued confidence in Hines to manage your investment. If you have any questions about your investment in HGR Liquidating Trust, please contact your financial professional or call Hines Investor Relations at 888.220.6121.

Jeffrey C. Hines
Chief Executive Officer and Trustee

1 The amount of regular operating distributions received by each investor depends on when the investment was made and will be lower for those who invested after inception. Special distributions include liquidating distributions and other special distributions that are deemed a return of invested capital and reduce the investors’ remaining investment in the Trust.

2 The new estimated NAV is not based on updated appraisals of the Trust’s remaining assets. There can be no assurances that investors will receive additional special distributions equal to the new estimated NAV.
