September 24, 2019

ATLANTA, September 24, 2019 – JLL announced today that it has closed the sale of Hitchcock Plaza, a 252,311-square-foot, 88.7%-leased, dominant retail center in Aiken, South Carolina.

Hitchcock Plaza is the premier shopping center in Aiken and home to 19 national and regional tenants, including an anchor line-up of national and credit-worthy tenants such as Ross Dress for Less, TJ.Maxx, Bed Bath & Beyond, Academy Sports, Old Navy and Petco. The sale includes a .85-acre outparcel development site that could be used to expand the center. Situated on 24.04 acres at 427 Fabian Drive, the property is in a dominant retail hub in Aiken. More than 30,000 residents earning an average annual household income of more than $92,000 live within a three-mile radius of the property, but Hitchcock Plaza’s nearest competition is at least 25 miles away in Augusta, so the property serves an extended trade area. Additionally, the property is at the highly trafficked intersection of Whiskey, Pine Log and Silver Bluff Roads, which results in visibility to approximately 68,500 vehicles per day.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Managing Director Margaret Caldwell, now with Arden Capital Advisors, and Vice President Margret Jones.
