MORRISTOWN, N.J., August 13, 2019 – JLL announces that it has closed the $17 million sale of Hubbards Commons, a 65,970-square-foot, grocery-anchored shopping center in the Long Island community of West Babylon, New York.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller. ShopOne Centers REIT purchased the asset.

Hubbards Commons 98% leased to a variety of tenants, including Best Market, Rite Aid Pharmacy and Orangetheory Fitness. The one-building center was renovated in 2017 and is expandable through the development of a 10,900-square-foot building on an adjacent 1.8-acre fully approved pad site. Situated at 713-761 Sunrise Highway, Hubbards Commons is close to major highways, including Southern State Parkway, Sagtikos Parkway and Babylon Northport Expressway. Additionally, the center is adjacent to a residential neighborhood and more than 143,023 residents earning an average annual household income of more than $109,000 live within a three-mile radius.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller included Jose Cruz, Steve Simonelli, Kevin O’Hearn, Michael Oliver, Andrew Scandalios and Grace Braverman.

“Hubbards Common’s location as well as tenant mix drew strong interest from local and national buyers. Grocery anchored centers continue to be highly sought after by the investment community,” Cruz said. “We are very pleased with the outcome of this transaction.”
