Investors Target Retail Assets in Tennessee

JLL completes sales of CarMax properties in Nashville, Memphis

​Nashville, Tenn, June 20, 2016 - JLL’s Capital Markets today announced the sale of two CarMax properties in the Southeast: CarMax Nashville and CarMax Memphis. Thompson National Properties, advisor on behalf of the ownership group PKD GP, bought the Nashville asset, and CAR CMX TN MEM, L.L.C bought the Memphis asset, which is also managed by JLL.

Managing Director Kris Cooper of JLL Atlanta led the JLL team on the deal.

“CarMax has a great national brand and credit,” said Cooper. “Those factors, combined with the fact that Nashville and Memphis are some of the most solid markets in Southeast, helped the sales process move quickly.”

CarMax Nashville and CarMax Memphis both feature an absolute net lease structure. CarMax Nashville is prominently located in the Oaks Mall area and at the busy intersection of I-65 and I-440, while CarMax Memphis is the only CarMax store in that market.
