Florida grocery-anchored retail center sells in Palm Bay

JLL Capital Markets completed the sale of the Winn-Dixie and Bealls Outlet-anchored Marketplace at Palm Bay on Florida’s East Coast

March 24, 2021

ORLANDO, March 24, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Marketplace at Palm Bay, a 149,752-square-foot retail center anchored by Winn-Dixie and Bealls Outlet in the eastern coastal Florida community of Palm Bay, Florida.

JLL marketed the property in coordination with Ten-X on behalf of the seller, DLC Management Corporation. A private Florida-based investment group acquired the asset.

Marketplace at Palm Bay is co-anchored by a Winn-Dixie grocer and Bealls Outlet. Situated on nearly 17 acres at 5270 Babcock St. NE, the center is visible to more than 47,000 vehicles per day and has superior connectivity and easy access to Interstate 95. Palm Bay is in the Melbourne MSA equidistant between Jacksonville and Miami and 60 miles southeast of Orlando.

In addition to Winn-Dixie and Bealls Outlet, the 92.4-percent-leased Marketplace at Palm Bay is home to Workout Anytime, Brevard Health Alliance, CSL Plasma, Healthworx and more, providing a strong health and wellness-oriented tenancy.

The JLL Capital Markets team that represented the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Brad Peterson, Senior Director Whitaker Leonhardt and Analyst Tommy Isola.

“Marketplace at Palm Bay had nearly 28,000 square feet in recent new leases, including a new Workout Anytime junior anchor, which highlights the strength of the location,” Peterson said. “Through COVID-19, we have also seen an increase in capital that wants to invest in Florida, so it was no surprise that we had more than 300 investors sign up to review this offering.”
