|Noncontrolling Interest [Abstract]|
Noncontrolling interests in the Operating Partnership relate to the interests in the Operating Partnership owned by Non-Company LPs as discussed in Note 2. The noncontrolling interests in other consolidated partnerships consist of outside equity interests in partnerships not wholly-owned by the Company or the Operating Partnership that are consolidated with the financial results of the Company and Operating Partnership because the Operating Partnership exercises control over the entities that own the properties.
In 2017 and 2016, adjustments of the noncontrolling interest in the Operating Partnership were made as a result of the changes in the Company's ownership of the Operating Partnership from additional units received in connection with the Company's issuance of common shares upon the exercise of options and grants of share-based compensation awards, additional units received upon the exchange of Class A common limited partnership units of the Operating Partnership into an equal number of common shares of the Company, and units repurchased by the Operating Partnership as a result of the Company's repurchase of its outstanding common shares. As discussed in Note 13, for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, Non-Company LPs exchanged 32,348 and 24,962 Class A common limited partnership units of the Operating Partnership, respectively, for an equal number of common shares of the Company. In addition, during 2017, the Company repurchased approximately 1.9 million common shares on the open market and the Operating Partnership repurchased an equal number of units held by the Company.
