DECATUR, GA-Chapel Hill Commons, a 108,100-sf neighborhood shopping center in this Atlanta suburb, has been acquired by San Diego-based Sabatini Atlanta Enterprises Inc. for $18 million. The five-year-old retail property traded for $166.51 per sf.

Broker Bill Hain of Venture West Funding of El Segundo, CA arranged $14 million in acquisition financing with New York-based Bear Stearns for the 100%-leased, 24-tenant property at 4919 Flat Shoals Parkway. The 10-year loan is being amortized over 30 years.

The 16.35-acre DeKalb County property, 10 miles southeast of Downtown Atlanta, is anchored by a 64,905-sf Kroger grocery. Other name tenants are Goodyear, Nationwide Insurance and H&R Block.

Hain says the acquisition was made at this time because the buyer is “diversifying his portfolio of grocery-anchored retail shopping centers from a core holding of apartment buildings.” He says the buyer was coming out of a 1031 Exchange.

Hain adds the property was “not actually exposed to the open market. The buyer’s agent made an unsolicited offer.” The financing component was completed in 90 days, although a typical close is 30 to 45 days, Hain says. Additional time on this transaction was needed because the seller “exercised two options to extend the escrow period,” the broker says.
