JLL Retail Brokers the Sale of Hitchcock Plaza in Aiken, South Carolina

ATLANTA, April 28, 2014 — JLL announced today it has closed the sale of Hitchcock Plaza on behalf of Hendon Properties to Illinois based Inland Real Estate Group. The 252,097 square foot retail center was purchased for $28.9 million. Hitchcock Plaza is anchored by Ross Dress for Less, TJMaxx, Bed Bath and Beyond, Old Navy and Academy Sports.

Leading the JLL retail investment sales team on this transaction were Managing Directors Margaret Caldwell and Kris Cooper.

“Hitchcock Plaza is an extremely well leased shopping center sitting in the center of the retail corridor that will continue to perform stronger over time given the surrounding demographics and lack of competition in Aiken,” commented Caldwell.
