March 16, 2021

MIAMI, March 16, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $15.5 million sale of Daniels Crossing, a 112,003-square-foot neighborhood shopping center anchored by Publix in Fort Myers, Florida.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, EverWest Real Estate Investors, LLC and Stiles Corporation. Forge Capital Partners acquired the asset.

Daniels Crossing is 70.5 percent occupied and home to a high-performing Publix along with a diverse mix of essential, restaurant and service tenants. The property is situated on 15.93 acres at 6900 Daniels Pkwy. at the prime corner where Daniels Parkway intersects with Six Mile Cypress Parkway, which is visible to more 90,000 vehicles per day. This infill location within a proven retail submarket places the property proximate to nearby demand drivers, including office buildings, sports complexes and a large medical center; a daytime population of more than 100,000; and an affluent, growing customer base.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets team that represented the seller was led by Senior Managing Director and Co-Head of JLL’s U.S. Retail Capital Markets Danny Finkle, Managing Director Luis Castillo and Senior Director Eric Williams.

“Daniels Crossing is a well-positioned Publix-anchored retail center with outstanding near- and long-term growth prospects,” Finkle said. “Grocery-anchored retail centers remain in high demand from investors, given their strong performance through the pandemic and positive outlook as we move forward.”
