CHARLOTTE, March 30, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Twin Lakes Center, a fully leased, 18,594-square-foot, multi-tenant retail building anchored by Wegmans in the Raleigh-Durham area community of Cary, North Carolina.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Leyland Alliance. L&B Realty Advisors acquired the asset on behalf of an institutional separate account client.

Twin Lakes Center was completed in 2020 and is anchored by the only Wegmans in Cary. The fully leased shopping center is also home to a complimentary mix of national and local tenants, including Hollywood Feed, Great Clips, Mezeh Mediterranean Grill, Premier Martial Arts, PM Pediatrics, Paris Nail Bar, Bul Box, and Gulli Boys.

Situated on 1.72 acres at 1125 Hatches Pond Lane, Twin Lakes Center is adjacent to two premier residential developments, which will add over 400 new housing units to the immediate area. The center is also the newest retail center along Davis Drive, a popular and established retail corridor in one of the most affluent and fastest-growing areas in the Raleigh-Durham market. The property serves a trade area that includes 66,557 residents with an annual household income of $134,353 within a three-mile radius, and that number is projected to swell to 72,922 residents within two years.

The JLL Retail team representing the seller was led by Senior Director Thomas Kolarczyk and Director Ryan Eklund.

“Twin Lakes is a Class A+ development with a thoughtful layout, excellent connectivity, and superior fundamentals,” Kolarczyk noted. “We had significant interest from all sources of capital, including many institutional investors and publicly traded companies. The premier caliber of this project, diversified tenant base and highly affluent and growing trade area make this an awesome long-term investment.”
