HFF Announces Sale and $11M Acquisition Financing of Southwest Florida Grocery-Anchored Community Center


Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the sale of and $11 million acquisition financing of Northpoint Shopping Center, a 115,906-square-foot, grocery-anchored community retail center in the southwest Florida community of Cape Coral, Florida.

The HFF team marketed the property on behalf of the seller.  ALTO Real Estate Funds purchased the asset free and clear of existing debt.  Additionally, working on behalf of the new owner, the HFF team placed the 10-year, fixed-rate acquisition loan with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.

Completed in 2008, the 96.9-percent-leased Northpoint Shopping Center is home to Bed Bath & Beyond, Michaels, PetSmart, ALDI, Five Below and more.  Additionally, the center is shadow anchored by an adjacent Publix and BJ’s Wholesale Club.  Situated on 15.5 acres at 1803-1851 Northeast Pine Island Road, Northpoint Shopping Center is positioned along the trade area’s busiest thoroughfare and primary retail corridor.  More than 132,473 residents live within a five-mile radius of the center, and the population is expected to increase by nearly 10 percent over the next five years.

The HFF investment advisory team that represented the seller included senior managing director and co-head of HFF’s retail practice Daniel Finkle, managing director Luis Castillo, director Eric Williams and senior associate Kim Flores.

The HFF debt placement team that represented the new owner consisted of senior director Nat Scarmazzi.

“We are very excited to add this top-quality property to our portfolio,” said Scott G. Onufrey, president and managing partner of ALTO Real Estate Funds.  “This investment marks the first deal ALTO is doing without a partner and it aligns perfectly with our strategy to invest in well-located, core-plus assets at attractive prices.  We are focused on acquiring assets in growing markets with strong demographics.”

“The seller did an outstanding job creating value through the stabilization of Northpoint Shopping Center via the additions of ALDI, Five Below and Keke’s Café,” Finkle added.  “The property’s strong performing tenancy and ideal location make for an outstanding long-term investment for ALTO Real Estate Funds.”
