ATLANTA, June 5, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Lakeland Plaza, a 301,711-square-foot, grocery-anchored retail asset located within the Atlanta MSA in Cumming, Georgia.

JLL worked on behalf of the sellers, and Octave Holdings and Investments acquired the asset.

Lakeland Plaza is a super-regional, grocery-anchored retail center located in Cumming, an established and affluent submarket of the Atlanta MSA. The property is strategically located along GA-400, Atlanta’s primary north south thoroughfare that connects all of the city’s major office markets, and is proximate to multiple economic drivers, including Lake Lanier (11M+ annual visitors) and Northside Hospital, which just underwent a $40M+ expansion. Additionally, there is a robust multi-housing construction pipeline in the immediate area.

Built in 1990 and renovated in 2015, the property features a diverse line-up of anchor tenants, including Sprouts Farmers Market, Belk, Bealls Outlet, La Fitness, Joann and Shoe Gallery and offered investors upside via leasing, mark-to-mark opportunities and long-term redevelopment potential. The center is 94 percent occupied and features a Weighted Average Tenure of over 12 years.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets Debt Advisory team was led by Senior Managing Director Jim Hamilton, Managing Director Brad Buchanan and Associate Andrew Kahn.
