FLORHAM PARK, NJ – HFF announced today that it has closed the sale of a 226,515-square-foot retail condominium interest in the Rhode Island Mall center located in Warwick, Rhode Island.
HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Winstanley Enterprises, LLC. A private investor purchased the asset for $33.35 million or $147.23 per square foot. The third condominium unit (the attached vacant mall) was not included in the sale.
The Rhode Island Mall includes a 136,000-square-foot Walmart and a 90,515-square-foot Kohl’s that were built in 2000 and 2002, respectively. The property is located at 650 Bald Hill Road (Route 2) at the intersection of Interstates 295 and 95 in Warwick.
The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by senior managing directors Jose Cruz, Andrew Scandalios and James Koury, managing directors Kevin O’Hearn and Jeffrey Julien and associate director Steve Simonelli.
According to Cruz, “Winstanley Enterprises took advantage of strong demand for well located, net leased retail product. The term and credit of the tenants attracted a wide array of buyers.”
