Jones Lang LaSalle Retail Awarded Leasing for Regency Village

Firm appointed leasing agents for the 83,000 square foot shopping center in Orlando

ORLANDO, February 16, 2009 — Jones Lang LaSalle Retail has announced that it has won the leasing mandate for the Regency Village Shopping Center in the heart of Orlando’s tourist corridor.  The 83,000 square foot center is located on the intersection of International Drive South and Vineland Avenue.  The property owned by Cohen Commercial Properties is anchored by a 54,000 square foot Publix store and is home to retailers such as a Sony JVC, Subway, The UPS Store and Outback Steakhouse.
“This property is ideally located in the Buena Vista tourist area, adjacent to Orlando Premium Outlets, the area’s most successful outlet mall,” said Mike Longmore, head of Jones Lang LaSalle Retail’s Open Air Division.  “This is a great selling point for retailers who have a ready-made customer base in the area.”
Leasing for the property which is 88 percent occupied, will be lead by Brigette L. Johnson.
Regency Village was acquired earlier this year by Cohen Commercial Properties for $13.75 million from developer Tinwood LLC, a joint venture between Regency Centers and Publix which built the property in 2002
