Mixed-use redevelopment opportunity brought to market in Mexico

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, MEXICO Sept. 12, 2011 – Jones Lang LaSalle has been retained to seek bids to acquire Calle Corazón, a mixed-use redevelopment site in the heart of Playa del Carmen. The 2,576 square-meter (27,727 square-foot) property is ideal for mixed use redevelopment.
Leading the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this assignment are Director of Jones Lang LaSalle Mexico, Hector Klerian and Vice President, Santiago Mancebo.

“This offering represents an exclusive opportunity for investors to capitalize on an unrivalled redevelopment opportunity in the heart of Playa del Carmen,” said Klerian. “Calle Corazón is zoned to accommodate a potential mixed-use renovation encompassing retail space, a 31 -key hotel and 27 condominiums.
