HFF named to market for sale a super-core trophy retail project adjacent to Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, IL

CHICAGO, IL – The Chicago and Dallas offices of HFF (Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P.) announced today that they have been named to market for sale The Streets of Woodfield, a 711,402-square-foot, super-core retail project in Schaumburg, Illinois.

HFF directors Kenneth Glomb and Daniel Kaufman, along with senior managing directors Matthew Lawton, Jim Batjer and Barry Brown,  will market the property exclusively on behalf of the ownership.

The Streets of Woodfield is 98% leased on a long-term basis, and anchored by Carson Pirie Scott, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Crate & Barrel and Whole Foods Market. The Streets of Woodfield also includes a 20-screen AMC Theatre and the U.S. flagship store for LegoLand Discovery Center. The property is located at 601 North Martingale Road immediately adjacent to Woodfield Mall, (bottom left photo) a 2.2 million-square-foot super regional mall.

“The center features a dynamic, thoroughly modern architectural design, which appeals to the area’s sophisticated shopper base; and the open-air circulation allows excellent visibility into the project from Interstate 290 at the entrance to Woodfield Mall,” said Glomb.

“The Streets of Woodfield is a well-seasoned retail landmark in suburban Chicago which sits at a main-and-main location adjacent to one of the nation’s top 25 super regional malls. The center’s A+ retail location, outstanding / productive tenant mix, and upside potential are highly coveted by retail real estate investors today,” said Kaufman.

“The trade area offers retailers an exceptional demographic base featuring 270,000 people within a five-mile radius of the property and an $87,000-plus average household income.

Approximately 250,000 cars per day travel past The Streets of Woodfield on I-290 and Higgins Road.

 As a result of the area’s outstanding demographic characteristics, the Woodfield Mall submarket is a tier-one location for retailers doing business in the United States and The Streets of Woodfield is a first stop location for those retailers.

The property’s retail tenants report consistently high sales including top 10% of chain performance for a number of the retailers, and Whole Foods’ recent addition and long-term commitment to the center further demonstrates the strength of this location and the appeal of The Streets of Woodfield,” added Glomb.
