ATLANTA, Sept. 6, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $29 million portfolio sale of two grocery-anchored retail centers, the 144,678-square-foot Cherokee Corners in Acworth, Georgia and the 185,601-square-foot Concord Village in Smyrna, Georgia.

JLL represented the seller, an affiliate of Hackney Real Estate Partners. The buyer was Sedgh Group, LLC.

Both Cherokee Corners and Concord Village are anchored by Food Depot, a well-established regional grocer with more than 40 locations throughout Georgia and nearly 35 years of company operating history. Both grocer locations have signed a recent 10-year renewal.

Built in 1984 and renovated in 2016, the 100-percent-occupied Cherokee Corners is also anchored by Woodstock Market, Dolce Furniture and Family Dollar. Located at 5570 Bells Ferry Rd., the center sits at the intersection of Alabama Road and Bells Ferry Road, providing visibility to 60,200 vehicles per day.

The 99-percent-occupied Concord Village was built in 1988 and renovated in 2016. In addition to Food Depot, other anchor tenants include Goodwill, Citi Trends, Mega Furniture Outlet, Dollar General and CSL Plasma. Situated at 3201-3209 S. Cobb Dr. at the intersection of Concord Road and of South Cobb Drive, the center is passed by approximately 56,300 vehicles per day.

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

“Cherokee Corners and Concord Village are well-established community centers with tenancy specifically designed to cater to the surrounding communities,” said Buchanan. “Both assets are located in fast-growing submarkets of the Atlanta MSA and are positioned for long-term success, given the diverse drawing power of the anchor tenants and the below market rents relative to other properties within the immediate trade areas.”
