MIAMI, January 24, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $39.5 million sale of and arranged $26.1 million in acquisition financing for Coral Sky Plaza, a 232,727-square-foot, dominant retail center in the affluent South Florida community of Royal Palm Beach, Florida.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller. The buyer purchased the asset free and clear of existing debt. Additionally, working on behalf of the new owner, JLL placed the 10-year, fixed-rate loan with Morgan Stanley Bank N.A.

The retail center is situated on nearly 25 acres at 510-590 State Road 7 just past where it intersects with Southern Boulevard.

More than 186,000 residents earning an average annual household income of $94,469 live within a five-mile radius of the center. Coral Sky Plaza draws from an extended trade area of 13 miles, and that area is projected to grow its population by 8.5% over the next five years.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets team that represented the seller included Senior Managing Director and Co-Head of JLL’s Retail Practice Danny Finkle, Managing Director Luis Castillo and Director Eric Williams.

“Coral Sky Plaza is a premier retail center in one of South Florida’s most dynamic retail submarkets,” Finkle said. “The outstanding tenant performance from several of the industry’s leading retailers substantiates the quality and desirability of this core Palm Beach County location.”

The JLL Capital Markets debt placement team that represented the new owner was led by Senior Managing Director Chris Drew, Directors Maxx Carney and Jesse Wright and Associate Reid Carleton.

“The combination of exceptional tenant performance, strong market fundamentals and a high-quality borrower resulted in an aggressive showing from the debt capital markets for the opportunity to finance Coral Sky Plaza,” Drew added.
