Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the $9.75 million sale of Duluth Station Shopping Center, a 94,966-square-foot, Publix-anchored neighborhood shopping center in the Atlanta-area suburb of Duluth, Georgia.
The HFF team marketed the property for the seller, Forge Capital Partners. Slate Retail REIT purchased the asset.
Located at 2750 Buford Highway, Duluth Station Shopping Center is on the “going home” side of a major four-lane artery that stretches through downtown Atlanta, which is 27 miles southwest of the property. More than 65,900 residents earning an average annual household income of approximately $96,765 live within a three-mile radius of the center. Duluth Station Shopping Center is 81 percent leased to a variety of tenants, including Publix, Kumon Math & Reading, Great Clips, H&R Block, St. Vincent de Paul, Panda Garden and Grand Tire.
The HFF investment sales team representing the seller included senior managing directors Jim Hamilton and Richard Reid and associates Mike Allison and Brad Buchanan.
“Duluth Station represented a rare opportunity to acquire a dominant, high-performing Publix-anchored shopping center in one of the fastest-growing and affluent submarkets of the Atlanta MSA,” Hamilton said.
