OMAHA, Neb. – Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced today that the firm arranged the sale of a 98.6%-occupied, 112,005-square-foot shopping center anchored by a high-volume Hy-Vee grocery store in Omaha, Nebraska. The sale price was $17.2 million.
Hanley Investment Group’s Executive Vice Presidents Jeff Lefko and Bill Asher represented the seller, Woodsonia Real Estate, Inc. of Omaha. The buyer transacted all cash and was a family office based in Portland, Oregon.
“We generated tremendous interest and competitive offers from the private investment community for an institutional quality shopping center during a time in the market when institutional buyers had pressed pause on acquisitions for these types of grocery-anchored assets,” said Lefko.
Lefko added, “The buyer was attracted to Hy-Vee’s strong store sales, its long-term operating history at the center and the recent, substantial capital that Hy-Vee had invested into this particular location. The subject property also offered immediate stability for the buyer with long-term sustainability and future upside due to the below-market rent in the Hy-Vee lease.”
Lefko noted that Hanley Investment Group achieved an aggressive sub-6% cap rate for a stabilized grocery-anchored shopping center in the Midwest.
Applewood Centre, which was built in 1989 on 12.81 acres, is located at 9707-9765 Q Street in Omaha. Hy-Vee has occupied space at the property since the shopping center was built and, over the last 10 years, has expanded and renovated its space by adding a drive-thru to their pharmacy, an interior Starbucks and Wahlburgers, and a full wine and spirits store. Additionally, in 2021, Hy-Vee renovated its gas station outparcel (not a part of the sale) to its new “Fast & Fresh” concept demonstrating its further commitment to the site.
According to Placer.ai data, the Hy-Vee at Applewood Centre ranks in the top 15% of all grocery stores tracked in the U.S.
Hy-Vee, Inc. is an employee-owned corporation operating more than 285 retail stores across eight Midwestern states with sales of $12 billion annually. Hy-Vee was voted “America’s Top 5 Most Trusted Grocery Retailers” by Newsweek in 2022 and the #2 “Best Supermarket in America” by USA Today in 2021.
Nearly 80% of the tenants are national or regional daily needs tenants, including Hy-Vee, Edward Jones, Great Clips, H&R Block, Papa John’s, Pet Supplies Plus and Sun Tan City.
Applewood Centre is located blocks away from Omaha’s largest concentration of distribution and manufacturing employers resulting in a significant daytime population of over 156,000 employees within a five-mile radius, noted Lefko.
Omaha is ranked in the top 10 for both per-capita billionaires and the concentration of Fortune 500 companies. Also, four Fortune 500 companies and five Fortune 1000 companies are headquartered in Omaha.
