The site of the former Harley Davidson headquarters in Fort Lauderdale traded hands recently for $4.8 million.

Stiles Realty brokered the sale of the 45,000-square-foot showroom, warehouse and office space, according to a press release.

“With 200 feet of direct frontage on U.S. 1, the Harley Davidson store benefits from a highly visible location within Fort Lauderdale’s premier retail corridor, which includes Target, Publix, Bed Bath and Beyond and Best Buy,” Kimberly Barbar, Stiles broker associate, said in the press release. “Featuring retail and warehouse space, the showroom has been impeccably maintained and remains turn-key ready for a single-use tenant.”

2201 Wynwood, a Fort Lauderdale-based LLC, was the buyer. Felipe Yalale is listed as a registered agent on the buyer’s corporate filings.

Rossmeyer Fort Lauderdale Motorcycle LLC was the seller. The property at 2871 North Federal Highway last sold for $1.6 million in 1999, according to Broward County property records. It sits on a nearly 2-acre lot.

“Because of its vertical design, the Harley Davidson property offers significant signage opportunities on US1, an area where very few retail opportunities of this size remain,” Barbar continued. — Katherine Kallergis
