Here are South Florida’s largest retail sales of 2020

Top sale was $47M


Store closures and Americans’ reliance on e-commerce may have affected the top sales in South Florida’s retail market.

The region’s top retail sale of 2020, of $47 million, fell below 2019’s $96.8 million top sale and 2018’s $88 million top sale.

However, the average price per square foot among 2020’s top five retail sales bested last year’s average — $396 compared to $349.

Below is a breakdown of the top five retail sales in South Florida.

Whole Foods-anchored retail in Coral Gables sells for $47M. A fund managed by Zurich Alternative Asset Management purchased the Whole Foods-anchored retail portion of a building in Coral Gables. The Zurich-managed fund paid $46.75 million for the nearly 60,000-square-foot retail share of Plaza San Remo. Prudential Insurance Company of America sold the commercial condos at 6701 Red Road.
