MIAMI, Jan. 26, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $24.1 million sale of Parkway Village at St. Johns, a newly constructed, 52,070-square-foot, Publix-anchored retail center with two outparcels leased to Heartland Dental and Starbucks located within the Jacksonville MSA in St. Augustine, Florida.

The center was developed in 2022 by joint venture partners Stiles and Cantrell & Morgan. JLL represented the seller, Stiles Corporation and Cantrell & Morgan, and a private buyer acquired the asset.

Representing 68% of the GLA, the 35,413-square foot Publix at Parkway Village at St. Johns features the new “Publix Unique” concept, which includes high-end finishes throughout the store, a beer and wine tasting center, an enhanced deli section and a second-floor terrace with outdoor seating. In addition to Publix, the 100-percent-leased center is occupied by a mix of national and local retailers, including Supercuts, Orange Theory Fitness, The Loop and Starbucks and Heartland Dental on outparcels. The WALT of the property is over 13.5 years

Situated at International Golf Parkway and Commerce Lake Dr. within an expansive trade area, the property is part of the World Commerce Center development, which sits on nearly 1,000 acres and will be home to 2.1 million square feet of office, 1.2 million square feet of industrial, 950 hotel rooms and 1,200 residential units. The center benefits from an average household income of $142,371 within a three-mile radius and has approximately 1.6 million annual visitors. Additionally, the center is located 30 miles south of Downtown Jacksonville and is less than two miles away from World Golf Village.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team that represented the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Danny Finkle, and Alex Sharrin, Senior Directors Eric Williams and Jorge Portela, Director Jeff Cicurel and Vice President Kim Flores.

“The Stiles and Cantrell & Morgan teams developed a best-in-class Publix-anchored center in one of the most exciting and fast-growing areas on the Jacksonville MSA” said Finkle.  “The outstanding quality of the location, improvements, and tenancy made this a highly coveted acquisition opportunity and ensure the long-term success of this shopping center.”
