ORLANDO, FLA – Transwestern today announces it has closed the sale of Sand Lake Corners North, a 151,487-square-foot, Class A community shopping center shadow-anchored by Walmart and Lowe’s Home Improvement Store. On behalf of the seller, Transwestern Managing Director John Bell negotiated the sale of the property at 8115 – 8379 S. John Young Parkway in the tourist corridor and retail hub of Orlando, Florida.

“At the gateway of Universal Studios’ 474-acre expansion poised for entertainment and lodging development, Sand Lake Corners North will continue to benefit from Orlando’s record tourism and employment-driven population growth,” said Bell. “We saw robust investor interest in the shopping center, in line with Orlando boasting the second-largest retail transaction volume in Florida. With positive market fundamentals and declining retail rental rates as of mid-year 2018, we expect the asset’s value to increase as the nation’s most-visited city continues this trend.”

Sand Lake Corners North is 95.3 percent occupied by longstanding tenants, including Old Time Pottery, PetSmart, and Dollar Tree, which will provide the buyer long-term cash flow. The shopping center spans 15 acres at the high-profile, heavily travelled intersection of South John Young Parkway and West Sand Lake Road, boasting a 97,000-vehicle daily traffic count.
