The Greenery Mall, also known as Dadeland Square, a popular mixed-use landmark located at 7700 North Kendall Drive, was acquired by Dadeland Greenery, L.P., from Cofe ZM Dadeland, LLC, on Sept. 15, 2023, for a total of consideration of $58 million subject to assumption of an existing $39 million mortgage. With a vision to cultivate a dynamic and flourishing site for existing and new tenants, ownership aims to enhance the property’s potential and optimize its prime location on Kendall Drive and the Palmetto Expressway, just west of Dadeland Mall.
The 8.38-acre property comprises 129,585 square feet of prime street-level retail attached to an eight-story 84,913-square-foot suburban office building with 743 parking spaces. Major retail tenants include T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods, Guitar Center, JoAnn Fabric, Mattress Firm, Starbucks, Don Pan, UPS, and Jamba Juice.
The land is located in the Kendall SMART Plan Mixed-Use Corridor and the Rapid Transit Activity Corridor due to its proximity to the Dadeland South Metrorail Station and the South Dade TransitWay Bus Terminal.
“Based on its attributes, the land offers significant long-term redevelopment opportunities,” said Joseph Sanz, co-manager of the general partner of Dadeland Greenery, L.P. and Orion Capital Partners, LLC, the project’s sponsor.
Over the past three years, Orion has acquired more than half a million square feet of retail and office space in the Dadeland and Pinecrest Submarket, which has one of Florida’s highest per capita income ratings.
“As one of South Florida’s first true mixed-use projects, the Greenery was ahead of its time, and we intend to leverage its unique design, zoning and location to create a truly vibrant and prosperous hub for tenants and the community,” said Kevin Sanz, co-manager of the general partner of Dadeland Greenery, LP and president of Orion Real Estate Group. “With a focus on enhancing the overall tenant and guest experience, we plan to integrate a variety of exciting, modern, and diverse retailers, restaurants and entertainment options.
Orion Real Estate Group will manage the property and lease the retail space with other brokers and tenant representatives. Fairchild Partners will continue to lease the office building.
Danny Finkle, Eric Williams, Jorge Portela, Ike Ojala, and Kim Flores of the Miami office of Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, Inc. represented the seller, and John Crotty and Michael T. Fay of the Miami office of Avison Young consulted with both parties on the transaction.
