ATLANTA, May 5, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $82 million sale of Conyers Crossroads, a 465,993-square-foot super-regional retail destination center with a selection of popular national anchor tenants in the Atlanta-area community of Conyers, Georgia.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, a joint venture between Hendon Properties and Harbert Management Corporation. Serota Properties acquired the asset.

Conyers Crossroads is 100 percent leased to a well-tenured and loyal tenant base with massive drawing power that includes anchors Kohl’s, Belk, AMC, T.J.Maxx, Best Buy, HomeGoods, Michaels, Old Navy, Five Below and Shoe Carnival. The Property features a high-performing rent roll with many Tenants performing at or near the top of their districts generating exceptional, record-setting sales volume. Conyers Crossroads center was completed in two phases between 2000 and 2005 and boasts a high historical occupancy averaging 97% over the last 10 years.

Spanning 47.3 acres at 1454 Dogwood Dr. SE, Conyers Crossroads is in an established and dense retail corridor that dominates for more than 100 miles. This position 20 miles from downtown Atlanta has a super-regional draw and connectivity due to its proximity to Interstate 20, leading the center to being one of the most visited retail centers in the state and logging more than 3.7 million annual visitors.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Jim Hamilton, Managing Director Brad Buchanan and Associate Taylor Callaway.

“Investor interest was very strong for Conyers Crossroads, given the exceptional tenant performance, super-regional drawing power and prime location adjacent to Interstate 20 with direct connectivity to Downtown Atlanta,” Hamilton said. “There continues to be a record amount of capital pursuing retail investments due to the yield premium compared to other asset classes, which is a theme that has carried over from 2021.”
