[SOLD] Park Place Purchased by Active Property Player
Park Place in Dunwoody has been sold. Coro Realty Advisors, which purchased the 82,097 square foot retail property in 2009, sold it on December 9 to EDENS for an undisclosed sum. Located at 4505 Ashford Dunwoody Road, Park Place sits on 13.5 acres and is located directly across from Perimeter Mall at the intersection of Ashford Dunwoody Road and Perimeter Center West.
EDENS now owns and operates 1.8 million square feet of retail in metro Atlanta, including Toco Hills, Merchants Walk, Andrews Square, Buckhead Market Place, Moores Mill and North DeKalb Mall, which the firm acquired in September for $43 million.
In addition to buying Atlanta assets, EDENS has also sold several Atlanta centers in recent years. EDENS sold the Target/Publix/Dick's-anchored Lenox Marketplace in Buckhead in April for approximately $73.9 million, followed by the Publix-anchored Alpharetta Commons in Alpharetta for $24.6 million in May. In late 2018, the firm also sold the Kroger-anchored Sandy Plains Centre in East Cobb for $44.2 million.
In Park Place, EDENS has acquired a legacy asset in a desirable sub-market [Central Perimeter], but one that will soon face increased competition from new and updated properties nearby.
Perimeter Mall is adding new freestanding locations of Lazy Dog and Buffalo Wild Wings to its Ashford Dunwoody facing parking lot. Ashford Lane (formerly Perimeter Place) is attempting to breathe new life into the circa 2006 power center. Upcoming new additions to the center include Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, Brown Bag Seafood, Sweetgreen, Superica and a foodhall called "The Hall." The project is also eliminating some of its vehicular drives in favor of what it calls "The Lawn," a greenspace. The new Publix-anchored Perimeter Marketplace is slated to debut in early 2022 and will bring not only a new grocer but also restaurants like Chopt, Burger-Fi, First Watch and Panda Express, among others. Last but not least, work has begun on High Street, a $2 billion mixed-use project that also recently signed its first tenant: Puttshack.
