MIAMI – HFF announced today that it has closed the sale of Plaza San Remo, a Whole Foods-anchored retail condominium in Coral Gables, Florida.

HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, LIC Coral Gables Retail, Inc., a German investment group advised by Phoenix Property Company of Dallas, Texas.  An institutional investor purchased Plaza San Remo for $38.7 million free and clear of debt.

Completed in 2007, Plaza San Remo is the retail component of a seven-story, 180,000-square-foot mixed-use development that includes retail, medical office condominiums and a 739-space parking garage.  Located at 6701 Red Road, the 99 percent leased property is across from The Shops at Sunset Place and just south of U.S. Route 1 in Coral Gables.

The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by senior managing director Danny Finkle, director Luis Castillo and senior real estate analyst Kim Flores.

“Plaza San Remo’s combination of top tier tenancy and irreplaceable location in the heart of one of South Florida’s premier residential, retail and office submarkets, made this a highly coveted investment opportunity,” said Finkle.

HFF’s investment sales team secured more than $1.7 billion in sales of retail assets nationally through the third quarter of 2013.  In Florida, HFF has capitalized more than $475 million in retail transactions across all capital markets platforms during the same period.
