ORLANDO, FL - HFF announced today that it has closed the sale of Publix Plaza, a 52,600-square-foot grocery-anchored retail center in Tifton, Georgia.
HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, TMall Development, LLC, an RCG Ventures related entity.  Publix Super Markets, Inc. purchased the unencumbered property for $7.043 million.
Publix Plaza is located at 620 Virginia Avenue North adjacent to the Interstate 75 in Tifton.  Completed in 2012, the Publix-anchored center is 98.1 percent leased and is situated adjacent to Tifton Plaza, which includes tenants such as Belk, JCPenney, Bealls Outlet, JoAnn Fabrics, TJ Maxx and Carmike Cinemas.
The HFF team representing the seller was led by senior managing director Brad Peterson and real estate analyst Whitaker Leonhardt.
“Due to its location and its Tifton Plaza shadow anchor, Publix Plaza enjoys an extended trade area that spans more than 20 miles. With the nearest Publix being more than 45 miles away, customers are travelling considerable distances to visit the center,” commented Peterson.
