“Doraville Plaza is a dominant shopping center in an irreplaceable location in the heart of one of Atlanta’s most dense, diverse and vibrant submarkets,” Taylor tells “More than 250,000 people live within five miles of these assets.”

Located at 5706 Buford Highway, Doravile Plaza was built in 1968 on more than 20 acres. The property is 100% leased. Burlington Coat Factory leases 45% of the shopping center. The balance is leased to local merchants that M&M says reflect the diverse nature of the submarket. Some of the tenants have been in place for nearly 20 years.

“We received 25 offers for the four pad sites alone and were able to sell them at a premium,” McMinn tells “This level of activity is typical of the high demand we are seeing for quality net-leased retail assets. The scarcity of inventory creates a very competitive environment for offerings such as these.”
