  San Marcos Place is the first acquisition for NAI Investment Fund’s recently raised Fund II, and the purchase of this asset marks the fifth transaction completed in 12 months by NAI Investment Fund, which is led by Senior Vice President Andrew Pappas.

Completed in 1985, the center received capital upgrades in 2015.  The center is situated on 6.59 acres at 900 Bugg Lane in San Marcos, which is halfway between Austin and San Antonio along the Interstate 35 corridor and named the fastest-growing city in the United States. 

 Less than a mile from the 38,000-student Texas State University, San Marcos Place is visible to more than 132,000 vehicles per day from Interstate 35 and proximate to The Lyndon, a new, premier mixed-use development with student housing and retail. 

Walter Saad

HFF’s investment advisory team representing the seller included managing directors Cathy Nabours and Walter Saad and director Drew Fuller. 

Mark Shields and his partners have owned San Marcos Place since the early 1990s, and, at just over 80 percent occupancy, the center will be a great value-add investment for NAI Investment Fund,” Nabours said.

 “This was our team’s first time working with this buyer and look forward to the opportunity to work with Andrew and his team again in the future.”
