Trophy net-leased retail building in Atlanta sells for $50M
JLL Capital Markets closed the sale of the Restoration Hardware property in Buckhead
ATLANTA, April 20, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $50 million sale of Restoration Hardware (RH) Atlanta, an iconic, 63,831-square-foot, single-tenant retail building leased on a long-term basis to Restoration Hardware in the heart of Atlanta’s Buckhead area.
JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, a partnership between an affiliate of LaSalle’s Income & Growth value-add fund series, Ferncroft Capital, Redan Group and Blackmount Real Estate Partners.
RH (NYSE: RH), a global lifestyle company, has occupied the building since it was constructed in 2014. RH Atlanta is on 1.58 acres in Buckhead, Atlanta’s most sought-after submarket and one of the most affluent submarkets in the Southeast. The generational asset is located at 3030 Peachtree Rd. NW with frontage and signalized access on Peachtree Road, which is the most prominent thoroughfare in Atlanta with nearly 60,000 vehicles passing by the property daily.
The sale included a large land parcel with significant development rights and approximately 500,000 square feet of unused floor area ratio (FAR). The area immediately surrounding RH Atlanta is experiencing a residential boom, with more than 2,000 residential units delivered since 2018 and 700 new units currently under construction within a half-mile radius of the property. Additionally, the area boasts a daytime population of 118,668 within a three-mile radius.
The JLL Retail Capital Markets team that represented the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Jim Hamilton and Coler Yoakam, Senior Director Brad Buchanan and Associate Andrew Kahn.
“RH Atlanta is an iconic asset in the heart of one of the most affluent markets in the Southeast with frontage and signalized access on Atlanta’s most prominent thoroughfare, Peachtree Road,” Hamilton said. “RH Atlanta benefits from its uber-core location with densification and value-creation potential, strong income growth and a best-in-class brand and operator in RH. Atlanta continues to prove itself to be a target rich environment for new capital sources seeking high-quality retail assets in fast-growing metros in the United States.”
