ATLANTA, Dec. 14, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $16.2 million sale of Crossroads South, a 201,404-square-foot, Kroger-anchored retail center in Atlanta, Georgia.

JLL represented the seller. First National Realty Partners acquired the asset.

Crossroads South is 92 percent leased to a loyal and well-tenured rent roll that includes multiple anchors, including Kroger, Plant Fitness, Badcock Furniture & More and Roses. It is also home to inline tenants such as Subway, H&R Block, Shoe Show and Top Nails. Kroger generates strong sales at this location and recently executed a long-term renewal with plans to construct and operate a Kroger Fuel Center at the Property.

The property is situated on 23.39 acres at 7965 Tara Blvd. in a highly visible location at the intersection of Tara Boulevard and Highway 138, which is traversed by approximately 81,000 vehicles per day. Located in the highly sought-after Atlanta MSA, Crossroads South serves a trade area that includes more than 77,800 residents living within a three-mile radius.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team that represented the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Jim Hamilton, Senior Director Brad Buchanan and Associate Taylor Callaway.

“Demand for grocery-anchored investments is the strongest we’ve seen in nearly two decades,” Hamilton said. “We have seen many investors shift their strategy to retail investments, with grocery-anchored being the most highly sought after.”
