Terraces at University Place Shopping Center,
  North Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC

CHARLOTTE, NC –– HFF announces that it has closed the sale of and arranged acquisition financing for Terraces at University Place, a 65,112-square-foot neighborhood shopping center in Charlotte’s University neighborhood.

HFF represented the seller, Ziff Properties, Inc.  LBX Investments purchased the asset.  Additionally, working on behalf of the new owner, HFF placed a 10-year, fixed-rate acquisition loan with TIAA Bank. 

Terraces at University Place is located along the highly trafficked North Tryon Street, which exposes the center to 24,000 vehicles per day, and benefits from the rapid growth and transformation of the surrounding area.

Originally built in 2000, the property is now 97% leased to an eclectic blend of restaurants and retailers, including The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Que Onda Tacos, Iron Dish Korean BBQ, The Press Box Bar & Grill and Smoothie King.

 The excellent mix of experiential retailers will continue to garner significant demand from the young, entertainment-focused demographic of the nearby University of North Carolina Charlotte (UNCC) students.

Additional, as it’s situated just blocks from the recent $1.2-billion Blue Line extension, Terraces at University Place is becoming more accessible to the greater Charlotte population.

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller included director Tom Kolarczyk.

“Unanchored retail in areas near universities continue to garner exceptional demand, especially properties like Terraces at University Place that have a diverse mix of retail, service and restaurant tenants,” Kolarczyk said.

 “The growth story around UNCC is exceptional, which bodes well for commercial development and rent growth in the area.”
