BUYER: Publix Super Markets Inc., Lakeland


PROPERTY: 36301 E. Lake Road, Palm Harbor

PRICE: $13.35 million

PREVIOUS PRICE: $5 million, July 2007

LAW FIRM ON DEED: Lowndes Drosdick Doster Kantor & Reed PA, Orlando

PLANS, DESCRIPTION: Lakeland-based grocery firm Publix Super Markets Inc. purchased the 77,596-square-foot Brooker Creek Shopping Center in Palm Harbor for $13.35 million.

The price equated to $172 per square foot.

The center is anchored by a 56,146-square-foot Publix store. Other tenants include Coaches Pizzeria & Restaurant, Pinch A Penny and Wasabi Japanese Restaurant.

At the time of the sale, it was 99% occupied and had a single vacancy. Built in 1994 the 16-space center occupies an 8.29-acre site.

“We felt it was a good investment opportunity for us,” says Shannon Patten, media and community relations for Publix. “We have no plans to make any changes. We own 20% of the shopping centers in which we operate. If it's a good opportunity for us from a business standpoint, and it makes sense for us and our shareholders, then that's what we're going to do.”

The grocery store chain operates more than 1,000 stores in five states.
