PLANS, DESCRIPTION: Fort Myers investor Mark Turnbull purchased the 49,573-square-foot Colonial Center retail building for $3 million.
The price equated to $61 per square foot.
Jim Boback of Boback Commercial Group handled the transaction.
The bank-owned property was 46% leased at the time of the sale, according Boback. The property included 6,000 square feet of shell building space. The Florida Academy of Massage and Skincare currently anchors the center.
“This was owned by a bank out of California that failed and was taken over the by the FCIC and sold to a successor bank under a loss-sharing arraignment,” Boback says. “The bottom line was there was a lot of tenant demand for the property, but the landlord really wasn't interested in doing deals. It was bought by a local investor that owns a center of similar size.”
Further, three existing tenants have already agreed to expand, he says.
