AT&T Continues to Convert Ownership to Tenancy. Is this a Trend?

Following the formation of WarnerMedia, AT&T is converting most of its real estate holdings into long term tenancy due to the acquisition of Time Warner, which still carries a $150M debt obligation. The biggest deal was a sale-leaseback deal with Related Cos. last year in New York for $2.2B. AT&T also sold its Dallas headquarters in 2018. Here are the remaining assets on the market:
