Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the sale of and the $19 million acquisition financing for Crossroads Market, a 126,895-square-foot shopping center anchored by Publix and Walgreens in Naples, Florida.
The HFF team marketed the property on behalf of the seller a private real estate fund advised by Crow Holdings Capital – Real Estate. New Market Properties, LLC, a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of Preferred Apartment Communities, Inc. (NYSE: APTS), purchased the asset. Additionally, working on behalf of the new owner, HFF placed the 12-year, fixed-rate, 3.95-percent, non-recourse loan with Nationwide Life Insurance Company.
Crossroads Market is 98.1 percent leased to a variety of national and regional tenants, including anchors Publix and Walgreens, Crunch Fitness, Giovanni Italian Ristorante, Physicians Regional Health Care, Chase Bank and Subway. Situated on 14.36 acres at 6029 Pine Ridge Road, the center is near the Interstate 75 interchange and at the entrance to the 1,400-acre Vineyard luxury golf course residential community. The center is also adjacent to the 365,000-square-foot Physicians Regional Medical Center. Crossroads Market is in Naples, one of Florida’s most affluent communities, and more than 57,100 residents earning an average annual household income of $91,549 live within a three-mile radius of the center.
The HFF team that represented the seller included senior managing director and co-head of HFF’s retail practice Daniel Finkle, managing director Luis Castillo and director Eric Williams.
The HFF debt placement team representing the borrowers consisted of senior managing director Ed Coco, senior director Nat Scarmazzi and associate Matt Casey.
“We continue to see exceptional demand for successful retail centers like Crossroads Market,” Castillo said. “The strength of tenancy and strategic location within the affluent Naples market made this an ideal acquisition for New Market Properties.”
“New Market Properties continues to build a sizeable portfolio anchored by market-leading grocers,” Coco added. “With increasing Publix sales and a highly visible infill location, Crossroads Market represents another acquisition with strong fundamentals in a desirable Naples community.”
Since January 2012, HFF has brokered the sale of 37 Publix-anchored centers and more than 26.46 million square feet of retail property sales in Florida.
