Gorman and Shover of CBRE Group, Inc. broker $7.2 million sale of Tollgate Commons
Lansdale, PA — CBRE Group, Inc. (CBRE) has arranged the sale of Tollgate Commons, a 100% occupied, 21,293 s/f multi-tenant retail center located at 1650 Sumneytown Pike in Lansdale for a sale price of $7.2 million.
CBRE’s Matthew Gorman and Michael Shover listed the property and represented the seller, a local developer based outside of Philadelphia and the buyer was represented by Keller Williams Commercial out of the Lehigh Valley.
“Tollgate Commons is a low-management multi-tenant retail property in a dominant location that offers more yield than a traditional net lease property, but appeals to a very similar buyer pool due to the passive nature of the investment,” said Gorman. “We’ve been much more active in this segment of the industry as we’ve experienced a strong market response to each opportunity we list for sale.”
“A big challenge for investors in today’s market is finding a high-quality piece of real estate with a good return and little to no management,” said Shover. “In this case we are able to offer all of those characteristics to the buyer pool, generating numerous offers and ultimately closing at 98.5% of the list price.”
Gorman and Shover, both senior vice presidents, lead CBRE’s Net-Lease Property Group Mid-Atlantic Team along with Marc Mandel, a first vice president and Stephen Schrenk, an associate.

The CBRE Philadelphia retail capital markets team, led by executive vice president, Brad Nathanson, focuses on shopping center investment sales within the greater Philadelphia region including New Jersey and Delaware.
