JLL closes sale of neighborhood center in Albuquerque

The Walmart Neighborhood Market-anchored center is fully leased

October 22, 2019

DALLAS, October 22, 2019 – JLL announced today that it has closed the sale of Juan Tabo Plaza, an institutional-quality, fully leased, 74,393-square-foot neighborhood shopping center anchored by a Walmart Neighborhood Market in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Phillips Edison & Company, Inc. Samco Properties purchased the asset free and clear of existing debt.

Anchored by a dominant Walmart Neighborhood Market, Juan Tabo Plaza is home to a mix of grocery, hair salon, restaurants, tax preparation and health tenants. The property has been institutionally owned and maintained since the seller acquired it in 2014. Located at 11000 Montgomery Road NE, the center is positioned on the corner of Montgomery and Juan Tabo Boulevards, which is visible to more than 50,900 vehicles per day. It is positioned on the “going home” side of the road and is proximate to multiple area economic drivers, including the University of New Mexico, Kirtland Air Force Base and Intel’s campus. Additionally, the center is in the heart of Albuquerque’s most infill and affluent areas, and more than 118,700 residents earning an average annual household income of $82,569 live within a three-mile radius of the property.

The JLL Capital Markets team was led by Senior Managing Directors Chris Gerard and Ryan Shore, Director Aaron Johnson and Analyst Wesley Gilmer.
