JLL closes $23.3M sale of The Shoppes at Southside

The Jacksonville retail center is anchored by Best Buy and Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park

October 15, 2019

ORLANDO, October 15, 2019 – JLL announced today that it has closed the $23.3 million sale of The Shoppes at Southside, a 112,613-square-foot, fully leased retail center anchored by Best Buy and Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park in the Southside submarket in Jacksonville, Florida.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Brixmor Property Group. CORE Investment Management purchased the asset.

The Shoppes at Southside comprises a main building with the anchors and David’s Bridal; a strip building occupied by Cold Stone Creamery, Deerwood Jewelers and Moe’s Southwest Grill; and three separate parcels leased to Starbucks, Chick-fil-a and Aspen Dental. Situated on 12.9 acres at 9930-9990 Southside Boulevard, the center is accessible to Interstate 95, US 1 and Southside Boulevard, exposing it to about 209,000 vehicles per day. The property is in the Southside Retail submarket and adjacent to both the 1.1 million-square-foot Avenues Mall and the nine-building, 90-acre Gramercy Woods office park. More than 53,700 residents earning an average annual household income of $91,039 live within a three-mile radius of the center.

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

“The Shoppes at Southside is a very successful retail property surrounded by some of the region’s most significant demand drivers and serving both Duval and St. Johns Counties,” Leonhardt said. “Brixmor strategically backfilled the former Sports Authority space into one of the hottest new family entertainment concepts in Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park on a long-term lease, setting up an ideal investment opportunity for CORE Investment Properties Fund to acquire their second Jacksonville-area shopping center.”

 “The Jacksonville market is on fire, and JLL is seeing numerous transaction opportunities in Jacksonville, especially in multi-housing, office, industrial and retail,” Peterson added. “This is the 10th capital markets transaction that JLL has completed in the Jacksonville market in 2019.”
