Patterson-Woods/CORFAC International Sells Brownfield Site for Retail Development

Wilmington, Delaware (February 4, 2014)Patterson-Woods Commercial Properties/CORFAC International President Duncan Patterson, CCIM, announced today that Joe Latina represented Ace Petroleum Inc. in an investment property sale located at 2801 Concord Pike in Wilmington.

The buyer, HP Concord LLC paid $850,000 for .35 of an acre and a 1,296-square-foot garage building that it plans to demolish and make way for a new retail development on the land.

According to Latina, the buyer has entered the property into the DNREC Brownfields Development Program as a first step toward cleaning the site for redevelopment. DNREC is an abbreviation for The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and the state entity that oversees brownfield-site redevelopment.

“The buyer paid a premium for the land on a per-square-foot basis (the equivalent of slightly over $2.4 million per acre) but given the strong demand for Class A retail along the Concord Pike corridor, and the lack of available opportunities, I am confident that they will be able to redevelop the property and demand a strong enough rent get to a good return on their investment,” said Latina.

It is the second investment property sale on the Concord Pike corridor completed by Patterson-Woods/CORFAC International this year. Last month Tom Ryan (with Patterson-Woods) sold a retail property located at 2702 Concord Pike that is occupied by Delaware Gold Exchange and Casapulla’s Subs.
