Case Studies

Here are several examples of how we have acquired and redeveloped under-performing assets. We take pride in our ability to see potential and create success stories for our investors and the communities in which we work.

Homosassa Regional Shopping Center Case Study

We purchased this 70,000 square foot building from Wal-Mart; it had been operated as a Wal-Mart store for years, until a new Supercenter was built in the trade area. At the time of purchase, the building was approximately 35% occupied, with Tractor Supply as the sole tenant.
