Jones Lang LaSalle Closes $3.4M Walgreens Sale in the Orlando Submarket

Firm expects to close more than $1 billion in single-tenant, net-leased sales in 2013

ORLANDO, Aug. 5, 2013 — On behalf of Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co., Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has completed the sale of a freestanding Walgreens located in the Orlando submarket of Kissimmee, Florida for $3.4 million.  The Walgreens property operates on a NN lease with six years of remaining lease term.

Managing Director Guy Ponticiello and Associate Matt Berres led the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction.

“This sale represented an attractive opportunity for an investor to acquire an asset backed by an investment grade tenant in a strong, primary market within a major retail corridor.    Current investors in the marketplace value the secure cash flow of investment grade credit properties, notably drug stores,” said Berres.

“In the past, Walgreens was developing, on average, 500 stores per year and now you see them with a target number of around 150.   Significant demand for the brand new stores coupled with a constrained supply, has forced investors to seek out stores with seasoned leases.  We have witnessed approximately 75 basis points of cap rate compression over the past 12 months in the shorter term leases,” added Berres.

In the past 12 months, Jones Lang LaSalle has closed more than $500 million of single-tenant, net-leased properties across the country, making the firm the nation’s leading seller of such properties.  In addition, JLL has nearly $750 million in single tenant net lease offerings currently in the market.

“The ability for sellers and occupiers to capture strong pricing due to the attractive, low cap rate environment is continuing to be a motivating force and we expect a significant amount of new offerings to hit the market in the second half of the year,” concluded Ponticiello.
