Marcus & Millichap Senior Vice President and Institutional Property Advisors (IPA) senior director Douglas K. Mandel negotiated the sale of an 84,551-square-foot retail center located at 500 Linton Boulevard in Delray Beach.
Delray Beach-based Menin Development, Inc. purchased the 100% leased, three-building retail center for $33,000,000, or just more than $390 per square foot. Menin has acquired and/or developed in excess of 3 million square feet in Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana and Tennessee.
New Century CommonsMandel represented the seller, Linton 510 LLC, in the transaction.
The deal closed June 20.
New Century Commons consists of three unique components, all with direct frontage on Linton Boulevard, providing great visibility with convenient access to I-95. The center boasts a stunning and fresh approach to architecture, providing an upbeat, modern environment to shop and dine all in one convenient and easy to find location.
PetSmart anchors the former Costco building, occupying 28,762 square feet.
Sporting goods retailer Sports Authority currently occupies 45,173 square feet, but is scheduled to close as part of the big-box chain’s bankruptcy protection plan. The loss of the anchor tenant will temporarily hurt the property’s cash flow and negatively impact traffic at the center, creating multiple hurdles in bringing the deal to the finish line.

“We overcame tremendous challenges that occurred as a result of the center’s anchor tenant, Sports Authority, announcing a bankruptcy during the course of our deal,” commented Mandel.  “As of closing, they were selling the inventory and closing the store. However, several tenants have been inquiring about the space, as the location presents a rare opportunity for tenants to access the corridor with tremendous visibility and create synergy with the other tenants in the center. Fortunately, we were able to solidify a deal with a Buyer that recognized this and was able to visualize the growth potential that New Century offered,” he added.

New Century Commons-Aerial The northwest part of the site features a cleverly designed building totaling 7,400 square feet, which serves as the home for the vastly popular Chipotle Mexican Grill, and Cream, an Italian concept store that features handmade gelato, Italian coffees, fine wines, beers, and handmade pastries. PNC Bank occupies a third stand-alone building.
The shopping center is located on the south side of Linton Boulevard, with approximately 620 feet of frontage, located halfway between Interstate 95 and South Federal Highway (U.S. 1) in the busy Linton Boulevard/Federal Highway retail corridor in Delray Beach, Florida.
