ATLANTA, Oct. 4, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $20.01 million sale of City Center Crossing, a 98,408-square-foot, LiDL-anchored neighborhood retail center located in the heart of Sandy Springs, one of the most affluent and fastest-growing submarkets in the Atlanta MSA.

JLL represented the seller, Stream Realty Partners. First National Realty Partners acquired the asset.

Originally built in 1978, City Center Crossing has undergone an extensive renovation over the last several years. The property was 77 percent leased at the time of sale and home to notable retailers, including LiDL, Goldfish Swim School, GolfTec, Ready. Set. Fun., D1 Fitness and Hudson Grille. 

City Center Crossing is located at 6331 Roswell Rd. in Sandy Springs, one of the fastest-growing and most highly sought-after submarkets in Atlanta. Since 2017, the area has seen explosive growth and development with 1,400 new multi-housing units delivered within one mile of the property. Nearly 94,700 residents earning an average annual household income of $128,647 live within a three-mile radius of the property, and the population is anticipated to grow 6.2 percent by 2025.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team that represented the seller was led by Senior Director Brad Buchanan, Senior Managing Director Jim Hamilton and Associate Andrew Michols.

“City Center Crossing is a dynamic, grocery-anchored retail asset located in the epicenter of Sandy Springs, one of the most affluent and highly sought-after suburban submarkets of the Atlanta MSA due to a high-quality school system and proximity to Buckhead and Central Perimeter, the city’s most prominent office market with more than 20 million square feet of Class A office space,” Buchanan said.
