ORLANDO, FL – November 19, 2018 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the sale of a partial interest in The Fountains at Bay Hill, a 103,961-square-foot, upscale, mixed-use retail center with office space along “Restaurant Row” in Orlando, Florida.

The HFF team marketed the property on behalf of the seller.  An affiliate of Core Investment Properties Fund purchased 50 percent of the asset.

Situated on 9.93 acres at 7535 Sand Lake Road, The Fountains at Bay Hill is located along the famed “Restaurant Row,” a prestigious and thriving one-mile stretch of Sand Lake Road between Interstate 4 and Apopka-Vineland Road that appeals to tourists and residents in the nearby upscale communities of Isleworth, Windemere and Bay Hill.  More than 46,631 residents earning an average annual household income of $124,120 live within three miles of the center.  The Fountains at Bay Hill is home to a variety of national and regional tenants, including Ruth’s Chris Steak House, The Melting Pot, CVS Pharmacy, MoonFish, Steak on Fire, AT&T and My Gym Children’s Fitness Center.

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller included senior managing director Brad Peterson, senior director Whitaker Leonhardt and associate Michael Brewster.

According to Leonhardt, “Fountains at Bay Hill is located in one of the most highly desirable infill retail locations in Orlando, surrounded by some of the region’s top-performing restaurants, desirable Bay Hill and Dr. Phillips neighborhoods, world class Orange County Convention Center, and Orlando’s prolific surrounding hotels, theme parks and attractions.  This is a tremendous property and a great addition to Core’s portfolio, and is the seventh asset that HFF has sold or financed along Sand Lake Road’s Restaurant Row corridor.”
