ATLANTA, June 16, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of The Crossings at Four Corners, a 59,987-square-foot, neighborhood shopping center shadow anchored by a high-performing Kroger in the growing Atlanta-area community of Smyrna, Georgia.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Tri-Land Properties. LBX Investments purchased the asset.

The Crossings at Four Corners is a dynamic neighborhood shopping center with a well-curated tenant mix and is shadow anchored by one of the highest-performing Kroger stores in the Atlanta MSA. Some of the other tenants at the property include Pet Supplies Plus, DaVita Dialysis, America’s Best Vision, SuperCuts, Papa John’s, WingStop, LaVida Massage, Pita Mediterranean, Brighten Your Smile and Phenix Salon Suites. Additionally, the property included approximately 4.81 acres available for future development to add up to 35,000 square feet of retail space.  

Located at 3240 S. Cobb Rd., The Crossings at Four Corners is in Smyrna, which is one of the fastest-growing submarkets in the Atlanta MSA due to its proximity to major economic drivers, including Dobbins Air Force Base, The Home Depot HQs and the Battery – a $1-billion mixed-use and entertainment district.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team representing the seller was led by Managing Director Brad Buchanan, Senior Managing Director Jim Hamilton and Associate Andrew Kahn.

“The Crossings of Four Corners is a dynamic retail asset and was extremely sought after by investors due to the property’s well-established tenant base, ability for future development and being shadow-anchored by one of the highest-performing Kroger stores in the Atlanta MSA,” Buchanan said.
