CHARLOTTE, January 8, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Wendover Commons, a 151,016-square-foot, 98%-leased, super-regional power center in Greensboro, North Carolina.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Hammerford Development Co. CRS Realty purchased the asset.

Situated on approximately 20 acres at 4526 West Wendover Avenue, Wendover Commons is in the western part of Greensboro between Interstates 73 and 40 along West Wendover Avenue, which is the main retail node in the area and exposes the property to over 30,000 vehicles per day. More than 138,000 residents earning an average annual household income of $82,811 live within a five-mile radius of the property. Constructed between 2017 and 2018, Wendover Commons is home to a mix of national and regional restaurants, merchandise and service retailers, including Academy Sports, Haverty’s Furniture, Cost Plus World Market, First Watch and Outback Steakhouse, along with medical tenants.

The JLL Capital Markets team that represented the seller was led by Directors Thomas Kolarczyk and Ryan Eklund as well as Senior Managing Director Travis Anderson and Senior Director Cory Fowler. The project leasing was spearheaded by Moseley Real Estate Advisors.

“Wendover Commons is an outstanding retail development with exceptional fundamentals and highly productive retailers, spanning value merchandise, services and restaurants,” Kolarczyk said.  “Hammerford Development did a tremendous job cultivating a vibrant tenant lineup that serves the community. CRS Realty will benefit from stable cash flow, and the property adds an excellent asset to their growing portfolio.”
