HFF closes sale of fully-leased retail center in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

PHILADELPHIA, PA – November 15, 2016 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has closed the sale of Ephrata Commons, a 54,810-square-foot, fully-leased, grocery-anchored retail center in the Lancaster County community of Ephrata, Pennsylvania.

HFF marketed the property on behalf of TriGate Capital, LLC.  Heidenberg Properties Group and its joint-venture partner, Strategic Real Estate Partners, purchased the asset free and clear of existing debt.

Ephrata Commons is anchored by Redner’s Warehouse Markets, a leading regional grocery brand with headquarters in Reading, Pennsylvania. The center is also home to RadioShack, Wild Wings & Pizza, Gehman Jewelers, Cecilia’s Beauty Salon and Tokyo Asian Cuisine.  Situated on five acres at 385 Reading Road, the property is located on the primary north-south artery through the Ephrata submarket.  Ephrata is centrally located in Pennsylvania between six major employment hubs, including Lancaster, Reading, Harrisburg and Philadelphia.

The HFF team representing the seller was led by managing director Chris Munley, associate director Michael DiCosimo and senior managing director Jose Cruz.

“Ephrata Commons has a performing grocery-anchor in Redner’s and is well-positioned real estate in the submarket,” Munley said. “The Central Pennsylvania area continues to get strong interest from the investment community due to its strategic regional location and access to employment.”
