HOUMA, LA, Sept. 28, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has closed the sale of Houma Power Center on behalf of Kimco Realty Corporation.  The shopping center, which is anchored by Old Navy, Michaels and Burke’s Outlet, is located in Houma, Louisiana along Highway 3040/Martin Luther King Boulevard approximately 55 miles southwest of New Orleans.  New Orleans-based Property Management Group purchased the 100 percent leased 98,586-square-foot center for $8.5 million.
