A consortium of six companies recently paid about $9.4 million for the Shackleford Corporate Center, a five-building office and warehouse complex near Shackleford and Colonel Glenn roads.
A group of six limited liability companies paid almost $9.4 million last month for the Shackleford Corporate Center, a five-building office and warehouse complex near Shackleford and Colonel Glenn roads in Little Rock.
The 177,550-square-foot complex, at 4201-4217 S. Shackleford Road, is about 83 percent occupied. The tenants include Goodman Distribution, DirecTV, Sherwin Williams and Exide Technologies.
The property appraised at $8 million this year.
The sellers were SCC Properties LLC, ELAD LLC and Salcor LLC.
The buyers were RSH Investments LLC, Beaverdale Investments LLC, Oakdale Holdings LLC, DNG Real Estate LLC, Grandview Holdings LLC and 4201 Shackleford Investment LLC.
The buying companies are all Oklahoma businesses except for 4201 Shackleford Investment, which is an Arkansas firm. Andrew Holbert is manager of 4201 Shackleford Investment and also a principal with Colliers International Arkansas.
The group borrowed $6.8 million from Relyance Bank of Pine Bluff. The mortgage matures in 2028.
Colliers International Arkansas, led by Holbert, Brandon Rogers, Kevin Huchingson and Dickson Flake, represented the buyer and the seller.
"Shackleford Corporate Center was attractive to the buyer because it filled a perfect niche for them in this market," Rogers said. "The center features a great mix of both national and local tenants and represents a good value for the office-warehouse market segment."
Colliers International will continue to manage the property.
Anchor Realty Investments LLC, an affiliate of the David’s Burgers restaurant chain, paid $1.6 million last month to purchase the Mexico Chiquito building and property on Cantrell Road, also known as Arkansas 10, in west Little Rock.
