The facility features a ground-floor loading area, commercial loading docks and retail supplies on site.The HFF team representing the seller in the Treasure Island Retail transaction was led by managing director Chris Munley.
The HFF team representing the seller for the Treasure Island Storage transaction was led by managing director Richard Schontz and director Barbara Guffey.“The Treasure Island Storage and retail property is a unique asset developed by the seller, who owns several types of commercial real estate investments,” Schontz said. “Prior to going to market, we advised the seller to create a condominium structure to allow for flexibility in the marketing process. We were able to offer the property to the market as one asset or individual assets and uses, which allowed us to access the appropriate buyer pool for each use. Ultimately, were able to create more activity, yielding 15 offers and a significant premium in the sale price by selling each condominium to separate buyers.” “This is a great example of how HFF approaches each deal by putting the best team on the field,” Munley added. “We were able to work as a team across our product specialties to think creatively and execute on a complicated deal.” HFF has closed the $6.4 million sale of Nottingham Shopping Center, a 24,396 s/f retail center with a freestanding Walgreens in Hamilton, NJ.
HFF arranged the sale of the property on behalf of the seller, Mercer Realty, LLC. The buyer, an affiliate of privately-held real estate investment firm PAG Investments, was represented by Chaim Dahan Esq, of The Dahan Law Firm.The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by managing director Chris Munley and senior managing director Jose Cruz. “With retail cap rates continuing to compress in the Mid-Atlantic, acquisitions that have a value-add component are in high demand,” Munley said. “The security of the Walgreen’s credit and cash flow, compounded by the ability to develop further retail on the site, made this property a highly sought after asset.”
