The property was acquired by a successful Mexican investor represented by Miami-based EXAN Group. “While EXAN’s name might be commonly associated with the office and industrial sectors, this property is a good example of the type of well-located, long term, conservative retail deals that we actively seek”, said Juan José Zaragoza, EXAN’s Founding Partner, as they continue to successfully complete transactions, from beginning to end, during the pandemic.
Randy Blankstein and Jimmy Goodman of The Boulder Group represented both sides in the transaction. The seller is local real estate owner and the buyer is a real estate investment firm based in the southeast.
CVS Pharmacy has more than ten years remaining on their lease. CVS Pharmacy is the nation’s drugstore chain and total prescription revenue and operates 9,800+ locations in 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Brazil.
