Boynton Beach, FL. – June 13, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Stiles Realty and BBX Capital announced today the sale of BBX Capital’s Quantum Village, a 93,144-square foot Publix-anchored retail shopping center located at 1005 West Gateway Boulevard in Boynton Beach. Fort Lauderdale-based Stiles Realty, represented BBX Capital. The transaction represented the sale of the leasehold interest only, with a 33-year term.
Stiles Realty Broker Associate Kimberly Barbar and Vice President of Retail Leasing Ryan Karlin were involved in the property’s sale to Illinois-based RMS Properties, LLC.
“While Quantum Village is a quality asset with frontage on Boynton Beach’s main thoroughfare, the sale was particularly complicated due to the nature of the land lease,” said Barbar. “We marketed the property to local well capitalized buyers with whom we have very strong relationships.”
Quantum Village is situated on a more than ten acres along Gateway Boulevard with easy access from Interstate-95. This neighborhood center developed in 2007 features a 45,600-square foot Publix Super Market and 47,544 square feet of inline space, as well as a potential outparcel of 3,500 square feet. The Property is currently 71 percent leased to various national and local tenants, including CrossFit, Fire House Subs, The UPS Store, Allstate, Supercuts, Tropical Smoothie, Between the Bun, and Pro Health, among others.
“This transaction is another example of the progress we continue to make towards effectively monetizing our legacy real estate portfolio with the goal of allocating capital to support our core business growth,” commented Seth Wise, President of BBX Capital Asset Management. “This sale also reflects Stiles’ dedication to quality work as well as our combined abilities to maximize even the most complicated investment structures.”
According to Karlin, the asset’s location, strong retail sales and potential development opportunity made it an appealing investment for buyer RMS. “They outbid three strong competitors,” he added.
