Lauderdale, Fla.

Stiles Corporation is a full-service commercial real estate development and investment company responsible for more than 37 million square feet of office, industrial, retail, and mixed-use residential projects throughout the southeastern United States.
The buyer was affiliated with Tatone Properties, a private investment firm with holdings in Florida and Canada.

Arbor Square at Connerton was completed in 2007 and features a new 45,600-sq.-ft. Publix grocery store, a SunTrust Bank located on an outparcel, and nearly 34,000 sq. ft. of restaurant and retail space.

"Arbor Square benefits from limited direct competition and serves a large trade area that includes both well established and new communities," Carson said.

"Longer term, when the economy improves and Florida's growth returns to normal levels, the area surrounding Arbor Square is poised for dramatic residential growth, which will benefit the property and its tenants."
