WASHINGTON, D.C., September 22, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $1.7 million sale of a newly constructed 1,668-square-foot retail property ground leased to Valvoline in the Richmond-area community of Chester, Virginia.  

JLL marketed the properties on behalf of the seller, Tennessee-based GBT Realty Corporation. A private investor purchased the asset.

Valvoline (NYSE: VVV) is a leading, worldwide marketer and supplier of premium-branded lubricants and automotive services with sales in more than 140 countries. Additionally, the tenant is the second largest instant oil change chain by locations in the U.S. with more than 1,300 stores. Constructed in 2020, the property is situated on 0.64 acres at 2501 West Hundred Rd., which is only 630 yards from Interstate 95, which has a traffic count of approximately 124,000 vehicles per day. This location is the only Valvoline within five miles and the closet oil change location to I-95, which is a primary roadway into Richmond, which is 12.5 miles from the center, and into the rest of Virginia.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Brad Peterson, Director Michael Brewster and Senior Director Jordan Lex.

“Instant oil changes fit well in today’s market as customers opt for convenience and prefer to remain in their vehicles,” Brewster said. “This Valvoline proved to be an attractive offering due to the quality of the real estate and ideal tenant category.”
