MIAMI, Oct. 11, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $12.7 million sale of Columbia Promenade, a 65,853-square-foot, Publix-anchored shopping center in the Orlando-area community of Kissimmee, Florida.

JLL represented the seller, PMAT Companies, in this off-market transaction after introducing the buyer to this targeted deal.

As an entrepreneurial platform funded by private capital, PMAT was able to acquire the property at opportunistic pricing amidst the dislocation in capital markets during the Global Health Crisis in mid-2020 and to, thereafter, quickly complete lease-up and stabilize the rent roll, resulting in a prime acquisition profile for the buyer.

Completed in 2000, Columbia Promenade is 98.6 percent leased to a diverse tenant roster led by Publix, H&R Block and MetroPCS, to name a few. Situated on 9.7 acres at 1251 W. Columbia Ave., the property is in a high-traffic location with frontage along John Young Parkway, which provides regional connectivity. Columbia Promenade is in a dense, infill location with nearly 75,000 residents who live within a three-mile radius. The area has a strong projected population growth of 8.2 percent within the next four years.

The JLL Capital Markets team that represented the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Danny Finkle and Brad Peterson, Senior Directors Eric Williams and Whitaker Leonhardt and Vice President Kim Flores.

“Columbia Promenade represented an attractive opportunity to acquire a high-quality Publix-anchored asset in one of the Orlando MSA’s most rapidly growing trade areas,” Williams said. “PMAT did a tremendous job positioning the property for long-term success, and Columbia Promenade will serve as a great addition to the buyer’s portfolio.”
