ATLANTA, GA –- Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces that it has closed the $9.125 million sale of Lovejoy Village, an 84,711-square-foot, dominant neighborhood shopping center anchored by Kroger in the Atlanta-area community of Jonesboro, Georgia. 

The HFF team marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Phillips Edison & Company, Inc. (“PECO”).  Glen Una Properties, Inc. purchased the asset.

Lovejoy Village was constructed in 2001 and is currently the only neighborhood center within a three-mile radius. 

The 98-percent-leased shopping center is anchored by the No. 1 grocer in Georgia, Kroger, which includes its own fuel station, providing long-term income security for the owner.

 It is home to a variety of national and regional tenants, including the Kroger anchor and Kroger Fuel station, Workout Anytime, Marco’s Pizza, Jersey Mike’s Subs and Young Smiles Dentistry. 

 The property is situated on 10.4 acres on the “going home” side of U.S. Highway 41, which has more than 51,000 vehicles pass by the property each day and is in the submarket’s main retail node. 

Lovejoy Village is proximate to Atlanta’s primary economic driver, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, and is strategically located only 22 miles south of downtown Atlanta in a healthy submarket consisting of nearly 1.2 million square feet of retail that is 95 percent leased within a three-mile radius.
