New Jersey Home Depot building trades for $16.4M

JLL Capital Markets arranged the sale of the single-tenant, triple-net-leased property, demonstrating the strength of net lease assets with strong credit tenancy

February 11, 2021

MORRISTOWN, N.J., Feb. 11, 2021JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $16.4 million sale of a 128,715-square-foot, single-tenant retail building triple net leased to The Home Depot on a long-term basis in the Northern New Jersey community of Bloomfield.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Acadia Realty Trust. Benderson Development purchased the assets.

JLL Research found that net lease assets captured nearly a fifth of all commercial real estate investment activity in the second and third quarters of 2020, doubling the average over the last cycle. The retail sector saw the most pronounced shift to net lease, as investors targeted new investment on tenants deemed essential – like The Home Depot – in the wake of the pandemic.

Completed in 1997, The Home Depot (NYSE: HD) has occupied this property since 1994. The Home Depot (NYSE: HD) is the seventh largest retailer in the world. Home improvement stores were deemed “essential businesses” that were permitted to stay open during the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, and sales have soared for Home Depot and nearly doubled in 26 states. Additionally, sales at this high-performing Home Depot are helped due to limited local competition.

The property is situated on more than 11 acres at 60 Orange St. in Bloomfield, a suburban New York community, at a highly visible location adjacent to the Garden State Parkway and within five miles of Interstates 280, 78 and 95. Approximately 357,000 residents live within a five-mile radius of the property.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Jose Cruz, Director J.B. Bruno, Senior Managing Director Kevin O’Hearn, Senior Directors Michael Oliver and Steve Simonelli and Analyst Jordan Altman.
