MMG Equity Partners sold a Homestead shopping center anchored by Presidente Supermarket for $22.7 million, reflecting growing demand for commercial properties in south Miami-Dade County.
MMG Equity Partners sold the 85,714-square-foot Crystal Lakes Shopping Center at 3338 Northeast 7th Street for $265 per square foot. The buyer is VF4 Crystal Lake, LLC, managed by Jose Chacalo Hilu of Coral Gables.
The sale comes at a time when south Miami-Dade County is seeing a boom in new residential development and population. The uptick in residential growth is also leading to increased interest in commercial properties.
In addition to Presidente Supermarket, Crystal Lakes Shopping Center’s tenants include 24-Hour Fitness and Goodwill. MMG developed the shopping center in 2019. The property was last purchased in $3.9 million in 2006, records show.
Kirk Olson and Drew Kristol of Marcus & Millichap represented the seller in the deal.
