ECHO Realty purchased the 72,301-square-foot The Shoppes at Price Crossings for $20 million.
The price equated to $277 per square foot.
The 11.7-acre property features two strip center buildings that were both constructed in 2007. The center is anchored by a Publix grocery store. It had a single vacancy at the time of the sale.
The purchase was done as part of ECHO Realty's acquisition of a portfolio of eight grocery anchored retail centers across the Southeast. The portfolio included five Harris Teeters-anchored centers and two other Publix-anchored centers: Partin Village in Kissimmee and Riverwood Town Center in Evans, Ga.
The eight-center portfolio adds more than 500,000 square feet to ECHO Realty's shopping center inventory.
