CBRE’s Ron Rogg and Chip Wooten represented Monroe South RE LLC, the Miami-based seller.

“Selling Monroe CommerCenter South was a highly competitive process, which speaks to the strength of the industrial market and growing economy in central Florida ,” said Rogg, CBRE Executive Vice President.  “Charles Wayne was an ideal buyer, having a great track record in the market, and a reputation for closing on deals they target,” said Rogg.

Monroe CommerCenter South features office and warehouse space with grade-level rollup doors, appealing to a wide variety of tenants. The property is currently leased to a diverse and noteworthy tenant base in various industries, including services, suppliers, construction and technology, among others.

Chip Wooten
 Built in 2003, it was one of five similar “CommerCenters” developed by Small Bay Partners and NAI Realvest throughout Central Florida to meet the need by industrial users of 2,000 to 20,000 square feet. 

Charles Wayne Investment Management, LLC will handle asset and investment management functions for the property and its investors.  The NAI Realvest team headed by Principal Michael Heidrich will continue to handle leasing for the new ownership.  Charles Wayne and NAI Realvest are affiliated in this and certain other real estate ventures. 

Lightman added that Charles Wayne Properties continues to actively seek more expansion of its   commercial holdings in the Orlando market, which has led the country in job growth at 3.5% year-over-year.  Employment growth is projected to average 2.1% a year through 2023, according to Moody’s Analytics, almost 3 times faster than the national average projections of 0.8% annually.

Burr Corners Plaza, Manchester, CT

MANCHESTER, CT – Recently patrons of the Burr Corners Plaza helped to celebrate the grand opening of new anchor tenant At Home’s first Connecticut retail store.

 Luring the Texas-based home goods retailer into their new 98,000 plus square-foot space also underscores the plaza ownership group’s commitment and steady progress towards enhancing the overall shopping experience at the reinvigorated plaza.

In Summer of 2015, Winstanley Enterprises, LLC. of Concord, MA and Surrey Equities, LLC. of New York, NY acquired the 302,066 square-foot plaza for $22 million. 

The experienced ownership group quickly began investing money to make major improvements to the exterior and interior sections of the plaza, with a commitment to attract vibrant new tenants to complement existing retailers at the shopping center.

Adam Winstanley

 Some of the notable enhancements that were made to improve the customers shopping experience include roof structure repair and  new roofing, new under canopy material and LED lighting, parking lot improvements including new asphalt, curbing, seal coating and striping, improved pylon and building signage, new and enhanced landscaping.

 In addition, new LED site lighting will be installed within the next few months..

“To have a national retailer choose Burr Corners as the destination for their first store in the state of Connecticut speaks volumes regarding the visibility of this parcel, the strong mix of local, regional and national tenants, and also the unwavering support of the community,” said Adam Winstanley, a principal of Winstanley Enterprises.

“We purchased this property with a commitment to revitalize it and to lure in new tenants that our patrons would be excited about. It has been exciting to see this vison become reality.”

At Home is a home décor superstore, offering more than 50,000 on-trend home products to fit any budget or style, from furniture, mirrors, rugs, art and housewares to tabletop, patio and seasonal décor.

At Home is headquartered in Plano, Texas, and currently operates 167 stores in 36 states.

There also is additional retail spaces and a building pad available and being marketed at the property.

Edward Silvera
“When we acquired this property we knew that it had strong existing tenants, but that with improvements made could perform at a higher level.” said Edward Silvera, president and principal of Surrey Equities. “We now have a strong mix of dynamic and well respected tenants, and anticipate that trend to continue to develop.”

Burr Corners Plaza originally opened in 1989 and boasts 302,066 square feet of open-concept retail space located at the corner of Buckland Street and Tolland Turnpike. The property offers tenants strong visibility from I-84.
