HFF announces sale of suburban Orlando power center

ORLANDO, FL – January 15, 2019 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the sale of the Marketplace at Seminole Towne Center, a 484,520-square-foot, open-air power center in the northern Orlando-area community of Sanford, Florida.

The HFF team marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Weingarten Realty Investors.  A partnership between Fairbourne Properties and CBRE Global Investors purchased the center.

Marketplace at Seminole Towne Center is the largest and most dominant open-air center that serves the Sanford/Lake Mary submarket, an affluent area with more than 55,800 residents earning an average annual household income of nearly $90,000.  Situated on 45.9 acres just off Interstate 4, the center is at 1771 WP Ball Boulevard and has frontage on three heavily trafficked streets, WP Ball Boulevard (SR-417), Rinehart Road and Towne Center Boulevard, which exposes the center to approximately 76,100 vehicles per day. The center is also proximate to 7.5 million square feet of Class A office space.  Completed in 2005, the 99.1 percent-leased Marketplace at Seminole Towne Center, is home to a variety of national tenants, including Big Lots, Marshalls, Stein Mart, Ross Dress for Less, Old Navy, Ulta Beauty, Five Below, Petco, Party City, Cost Plus World Market, Smokey Bones, America’s Best, PNC Bank, Chipotle, Massage Envy, Panera Bread and AT&T.  Additionally, the center includes a non-owned Super Target and Mattress Firm.

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

“It is truly exciting to see the level of activity in the Lake Mary-Sanford area,” Peterson said.  “The office and residential markets are booming, and the completion and interconnectivity of SR/417, SR/429 and Interstate 4 will have a monumental impact on the area.  It is no surprise that we received more than a dozen offers on the property.”

HFF recently announced the closing of two other Orlando-area retail centers, The Fountains at Bay Hill and International Drive Value Center.
