BOCA RATON, FL-New York City-based Morgan Stanley has acquired a five-building shopping center portfolio with a total of 735,920 sf for $281 million. The properties were acquired from locally based REIT Woolbright Development Inc.

The shopping centers acquired were Oak Grove Shoppes, located on the northeast corner of State Road 434 and Jamestown Boulevard in Altamonte Springs; Sea Ranch Centre, located one-half mile north of Commercial Boulevard on the west side of AIA in Lauderdale by the Sea; River Bridge Centre on the southwest corner of Jog Road and Forest Hill Boulevard in Greenacres; Murdock Carrousel, located at 1900 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte; and Galt Ocean Marketplace, located on North Ocean Boulevard, approximately one-half mile south of Commercial Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

“The sale of these properties to Morgan Stanley further solidifies our goal this year to reinvest capital into both redevelopment and ground-up development projects throughout Florida’s major metropolitan markets,” says Woolbright executive vice president of leasing and marketing Mike Fimiani.
