A Brooklyn-based investment group bought two Miami Gardens shopping centers for $47 million, as retail rents continue to climb.
One Stop Management LLC purchased Las Villas Market Square and Miami Gardens Shopping Plaza, with a combined 198,885 square feet, according to a news release. Las Villas Market Square is at 4705-4895 Northwest 183rd Street, and Miami Gardens Shopping Plaza sits diagonally across the intersection of Northwest 183rd Street and Northwest 47th Avenue, at 4500-4698 Northwest 183rd Street.
Marcus & Millichap’s Drew Kristol and Kirk Olson had the listing for both centers and represented the buyer in the deal.
Both retail plazas were recently renovated, according to the release. The sale equates to $236 per square foot.
Rents average $35 per square foot, Kristol said via email.
Records show the sellers of both shopping centers are a handful of LLCs and corporations linked to Jeffrey Rosenberg.
