January 21, 2020

Press Release brought to you by JLL Capital Markets.

DALLAS, January 21, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged financing for the acquisition of The Shops at Worthington Place, a 139,283-square-foot, Class A, retail center that is part of a larger mixed-use property in the Columbus-area community of Worthington, Ohio.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Direct Retail Partners, to place the three-year, floating-rate loan with Bayview Asset Management. 

The Shops at Worthington Place is 92% leased to a mix of national and regional restaurant tenants, including Talbots, Panera, Orvis, Kenneth’s Hair Salon, First Watch, Aladdins Eatery and Lume Family Eyecare. Additionally, the center is shadow anchored by Kroger. The Shops at Worthington Place was completed in three phases ending in 2011 and is part of a larger, trophy, mixed-use center that includes a 190-unit multi-housing complex that is not part of the asset. Situated on 15.66 acres at 7227 North High Street, the center is at the highly visible corner of Interstate 270, the busiest highway in Ohio, and North High Street, which has traffic counts totaling 228,000 vehicles per day. This dense, infill location north of downtown Columbus has more than 94,400 residents living within a three-mile radius of the property and earning an average annual household income of $97,065.

The JLL Capital Markets Debt Placement team representing the borrower was led by Managing Directors Mark Brandenburg and Tim Jordan.
