HFF closes sale of multi-tenant net-leased property on the Texas Gulf Coast


HOUSTON, TX – October 12, 2016 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has closed the sale an 84,584-square-foot, recently-redeveloped, fully-occupied, multi-tenant, net-leased property in the coastal community of Port Arthur, Texas.

HFF marketed the asset on behalf of the seller, Baker Katz.  Agree Realty Corporation purchased the asset for an undisclosed amount. 

The property is situated on 5.75 acres at 2770 Highway 365 in Port Arthur, a coastal community in southeastern Texas approximately 90 miles from downtown Houston.  The asset is located at the southeastern corner of Highways 365 and 69, which has combined traffic counts of more than 65,000 vehicles per day, and there are more than 36,200 residents living within a three-mile radius of the center.  Originally built in 1996 and renovated in 2014, the center is fully leased to Hobby Lobby, Party City and PetSmart and shadow anchored by Walmart.

The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by senior managing director Ryan West and associate director Matt Berry.

“There has been significant commercial activity and development occurring in Port Arthur, including the Natural Gas Project Golden Pass LNG Terminal, which has created thousands of jobs in the area,” West said.  “Strong retail sales and demand for space in this trade area is a testament to Port Arthur’s strong economy.  The property is ideally positioned in the trade area and it will prove to be a great investment for Agree Realty.”
