Charlotte’s retail market continues to be red-hot. Most recently an affiliate of Lincoln Property Co. picked up the Northlake Commons retail center for $31.5 million, reported the Charlotte Business Journal. The seller, a joint venture comprised of Ferncroft Capital and a fund advised by Crow Holdings Capital, was represented by Berkeley Capital Advisors. The partnership had owned the 108,000-square-foot retail center since June 2011, when it picked it up for $22 million.
Located off I-77 at West WT Harris Boulevard and Reames Road in Charlotte, the grocery-anchored Class A retail was built in 2006. It consists of 80,000 square feet of gross leasable area and five outparcels. Anchor tenants include Dillard’s, Belk, AMC Theater, Macy’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
