ATLANTA, GA –– Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced it has closed the sale of the Colonnade, a 127,031-square-foot retail specialty center in Birmingham, Alabama.   

HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, DRA Advisors LLC, on behalf of its institutional clients.  A group led by Shannon Waltchack purchased the asset free and clear of existing debt.

The Colonnade is located along Highway 280, Birmingham’s most heavily-trafficked retail corridor, and is surrounded by Birmingham’s most prestigious neighborhoods, including Mountain Brook, Vestavia Hills, Homewood and Hoover.

 The property is shadow-anchored by The Summit, Birmingham’s premier shopping destination, and offers the ideal amenity base for the surrounding office buildings that boast more than 100,000 daytime employees.

 At the time of sale, the property was 91 percent leased to a variety of national and regional retailers, including Gold’s Gym, Edgar’s Old Style Bakery, Taziki’s Mediterranean Café, Scottrade, Cracker Barrel, Johnny Ray’s BBQ, Jimmy John’s, Asian Rim Sushi Company, Drapery Studio, Teach Me Beauty and Schaeffer Eye Center.
