Uptick in investor appetite for power centers with strong, in-place anchor tenants

CHICAGO, July 9, 2015 – JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the sale of Kendall Marketplace on behalf of an American multinational banking and financial services corporation. Chicago-based Kendall Holdings I, LLC., purchased the 191,736--square-foot, class “A” power center located in suburban Chicago. The property is currently anchored by Dick’s Sporting Goods, Marshalls and PetSmart, and shadow-anchored by Super Target, Home Depot and Kohl’s.

Managing Director Kris Cooper led the JLL team on this transaction.

“The sale of Kendall Marketplace illustrates the continued recovery of retail centers in suburban Chicago, especially those with in-place solid anchors. The new ownership has an opportunity capitalize on the tremendous growth potential in the area, and attract tenants to the available outparcels and to develop the additional 155,000 square feet of retail space as the market demands,” added Cooper.
