February 6, 2019 – Mission Capital Advisors, a leading national real estate capital markets solution firm, today announced that its Asset Sales Group is marketing Marketplace Retail and Office Center, a five-building, 121,406-square-foot, mixed-use property located at 110 2nd Street South in Waite Park, Minnesota. The Mission Capital team of Will Sledge, Kyle Kaminski and Tom Karras is marketing the property on behalf of the seller, a CMBS special servicer. The properties will be auctioned on the RealINSIGHT Marketplace platform, with the bidding window opening on March 4 and closing on March 6.
Located in the western portion of the St. Cloud submarket, Marketplace Retail and Office Center consists of a four-story, 88,190-square-foot building containing a mix of retail and office space, and four single-story retail buildings, ranging in size from 1,740 to 19,716 square feet. The property’s total occupancy is 65.7 percent.
“With five separate buildings, and room to build significantly on the property’s existing tenant base, this offering will provide strategic investors with various opportunities to create value,” said Kaminski. “In addition to increasing cash flow by leasing up the vacant space, the buyer will be able to consider a range of other value-add plays, including selling off some of the outparcels, or redeveloping parts of the property.”
The property’s retail tenant mix features several national and retail chains, including Starbucks and Pizza Ranch. The property is shadow-anchored by Dick’s Sporting Goods, Five Below and Fresh Thyme Farmers Market. With its location in the prime retail area of St. Cloud and Waite Park, it is less than a mile from the popular Crossroads Center, offering convenient access to Macy’s, JCPenney, Sears and Target.
“This is the perfect investment for a buyer who combines a creative approach with a strong leasing and management team that can increase the property’s occupancy,” said Kaminski. “With its strong location in the local market, we anticipate significant interest from local and national investors.”
