UPDATED March 19, 10 a.m.: Publix Super Markets just purchased two shopping center it anchors in Hialeah and Miami.

The Lakeland-based grocer paid $15.7 million, or about $245 per square foot, for the 64,260-square-foot Paraiso Plaza shopping center at 3339 West 80th Street, according to property records. The seller is a joint venture between DDR Corp., a publicly traded retail-focused real estate investment trust, and Madison International Realty.

DDR paid $9.65 million for the 7.3-acre property in 2003. The shopping center, built in 1997, is home to an IHOP, Little Caesars Pizza and Chase Bank.

In Miami, Publix paid $21.58 million, or about $254 per square foot, for the 85,060-square-foot Plaza Del Paraiso shopping center at 12100 Southwest 127th Avenue. Records show DDR paid $15.3 million for the 9-acre shopping center in 2003. Other tenants include a T-Mobile, Subway and Dollar Tree.

The sales in Hialeah and Miami are part of a 732,000-square-foot, nine-property acquisition for Publix in Florida and Georgia.

Publix has continued to purchase shopping centers where it has locations. As of December it owned about 32 percent of its locations – an increase from the 11 percent it owned in 2007, according to the Palm Beach Post. A year ago, Publix said it planned to invest $1.53 billion to buy its store-anchored shopping centers, as well as build and remodel additional stores.

In April, the company paid $23.2 million for the new location in West Miami and $29.6 million with its joint venture partner Echo Realty for a shopping center in Pompano Beach.

DDR owns and manages more than 300 open-air shopping centers across the country. In June, Madison International Realty refinanced a portfolio of 52 shopping centers it owned via a joint venture with DDR for $1.05 billion, and upped its stake in the portfolio to 80 percent. That portfolio included the nine shopping centers the joint venture just sold in Florida and Georgia.
