SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 29, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Town & Country Village, a 216,320-square-foot, dual grocery-anchored community center in Sacramento, California.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Donahue Schriber. Phillips Edison & Company, Inc. acquired the asset.

Anchored by Trader Joe’s and Sprouts Farmers Market, the 91-percent-leased Town & Country Village is also home to a diverse lineup of national and regional tenants, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Ross Dress for Less, T.J.Maxx and Five Below. The retail center was constructed originally in 1950 and most recently renovated between 2013 and 2014.

Town & Country Village is situated on 19 acres at 2601-2651 and 2717-2805 Marconi Ave. at the signalized intersection of Marconi and Fulton avenues, the main intersection in the trade area, which provides regional access and visibility to more than 60,000 vehicles per day. This irreplaceable, infill location serves a dense, mature area in Sacramento, which is currently one of the top growth markets in the country. More than 342,200 residents earning an average annual household income of $85,055 live within a five-mile radius of the center, and that population is anticipated to increase to nearly 359,900 by 2025.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets team representing the buyer was led by Eric Kathrein, Geoff Tranchina, Bryan Ley and Gleb Lvovich.

“Town and Country Village provided a unique opportunity to own the dominant center within the market,” Kathrein said. “The property provides what retail investors are seeking today from a grocery-anchored center, and we saw tremendous interest from a diverse pool of investors.”
