GBT Realty Walks Away with $17M Fresh Market-Anchored Center in Savannah

JLL has closed the $16.9-million sale of Abercorn Walk, a 69,396-square-foot retail center anchored by The Fresh Market in Savannah, GA.

A JLL team of Jim Hamilton, Brad Buchanan and Andrew Michols marketed the property on behalf of the seller. GBT Realty Corporation purchased the asset.

Abercorn Walk’s tenancy includes Ethan Allen, Soma Intimates, White House Black Market, Chicos, Nadeau, Joseph A. Bank, J. Jill, Talbots, StretchLab and Cycle Bar.

Located in the Oglethorpe/Abercorn Retail Corridor, Abercorn Walk is one of the two specialty grocers in the entire submarket and serves 81,040 residents within a three-mile radius.

“Abercorn Walk is a high-performing, grocery-anchored asset with near term value-add potential and a strategic location in the robust Savannah MSA,” said Hamilton. “Strong grocer sales have continued to drive the global pursuit of yield into the grocery-anchored sector, creating some of the deepest and diverse buyer pools we have seen to date.”
