Single-tenant retail building trades for $2.2M in coastal Florida

JLL Capital Markets completed the sale of the highly visible property leased to a fast food restaurant in New Smyrna Beach

August 20, 2020

ORLANDO, August 20, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $2.2 million sale of a single-tenant retail building ground leased to the highest grossing fast food chain in the world in a high-traffic location in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Regency Centers, and procured the buyer, SRE Holdings.

The tenant is the No. 1 highest-grossing fast food chain in the world, serving nearly 69 million customers daily in nearly 120 countries. The New Smyrna Beach property is housed on 1.6 acres at 3181 FL-44 in front of the only Walmart serving the coastal community of New Smyrna Beach and about 15 minutes from the beach. The property, which features a drive-through, is along Interstate 95, which is the longest north-south interstate in the U.S. and carries 47,000 vehicles per day.

The JLL Capital Markets team that represented the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Brad Peterson and Director Michael Brewster. The JLL Capital Markets team that represented the buyer included Senior Director John Krzyminski and Analyst Max Krzyminski.

“Investment capital continues to gravitate towards real estate safe havens and single-tenant retail assets,” Brewster said. “In addition to the essential nature of this tenant, this coastal location continues to experience robust tourist demand.”

“The building sits on an oversized parcel with a double drive-through, a rarity in this market,” John Krzyminski added. “Additionally, the retail property is situated at the apex of multiple development opportunities, including multi-housing and single-family residential, healthcare and hospitality projects.”
