A significant portion of the Company’s land, buildings and improvements serve as collateral for its mortgage loans. Accordingly, restrictions exist as to the encumbered property’s transferability, use and other common rights typically associated with property ownership.
Assets Held for Sale and Dispositions

At September 30, 2020 assets held for sale included Columbia Fire Station, Riversedge North, Berkley Shopping Center, a .75 acre land parcel at Berkley and two outparcels at Rivergate Shopping Center, as the Company has committed to a plan to sell each property. At September 30, 2019 assets held for sale included St. Matthews.

Impairment expenses on assets held for sale are a result of reducing the carrying value for the amount that exceeded the property's fair value less estimated selling costs. The valuation assumptions are based on the three-level valuation hierarchy for fair value measurement and represent Level 2 inputs. The impairment expenses during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 are as follows (in thousands):

The Harbor Pointe land parcel sale represents discontinued operations as it was a strategic shift that had a major effect on the Company's financial position or results of operations.
All other assets held for sale do not represent a strategic shift that has a major effect on the Company's financial position or results of operations. Accordingly, the operating results of these properties remain classified within continuing operations for all periods presented.In May 2019, an approximate 10,000 square foot outparcel at the JANAF property was demolished resulting in a $331 thousand write-off to make way for a new approximate 20,000 square foot building constructed by a new grocer tenant, Aldi.
