Press Release (ePRNews.com) - WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - May 05, 2021 - Sterling Organization, a vertically integrated private equity real estate investment firm, has announced the acquisition of Cinco Ranch Shopping Center, a 97,266-square-foot grocery-anchored shopping center located in the Houston MSA. The property was purchased on behalf of Sterling Organization’s institutional grocery-anchored shopping center core fund, Sterling United Properties II, LP (“SUP II”), for $21.25 million or $218 per square foot.
The property is currently 94% leased and anchored by a 63,373-square-foot Kroger grocery store. The property is well-positioned in a densely populated submarket that has over 123,000 people living within a 3-mile radius of the site with an average household income of over $142,000.
“We are pleased to add an asset of Cinco Ranch’s quality to our growing SUP II portfolio,” said Brian Kosoy, Managing Principal and CEO of Sterling Organization. “Our core Fund’s strategy of investing in market-leading grocery-anchored shopping centers has provided significant downside protection during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The stability and resilience exhibited by these properties have not been a surprise to us, and Cinco Ranch Shopping Center should deliver the same consistent and durable cash flow our investor partners have come to expect. We remain optimistic about the opportunities ahead for this Fund and the sector as a whole,” he added.
Paul Mittmann, Senior Vice President of Investments, Western Region, for Sterling Organization added, “We would like to thank both Edens and JLL for another smooth transaction, our second as a group thus far in 2021.”
Sterling purchased Mill Pond Village a 94,550 sq. ft. grocery-anchored center located in the Philadelphia MSA from Edens for $19.74 million in January.
Cinco Ranch Shopping Center marks Sterling Organization’s fourth asset in Texas and the eighth in their SUP II Fund, increasing the Fund’s portfolio to eight grocery-anchored shopping centers and approximately 1 million square feet of GLA. From coast to coast, the Palm Beach, FL-based firm and its principals own more than 12 million square feet of primarily retail real estate approaching $2.2 billion in value.
