ULX: Retail Reconstructions

October 16, 2013 in Urbanland

In 2006, two Dallas-based developers—Corinth Properties and ATR and Associates—purchased the One Hundred Oaks Mall, an 880,000-square-foot (82,000 sq m) enclosed mall. Since its opening nearly 40 years earlier, the mall had suffered as suburban competitors sprang up. By the time of the purchase, only the ground floor was fully leased, with the upper levels mostly vacant. Three miles (5 km) away, Vanderbilt University Medical Center had outgrown its hospital campus in midtown Nashville and needed to move its outpatient clinics off site. The medical center leased the mall’s second and third levels as well as its office tower, while the retail tenants remained on the first.

September 13, 2009 in Nashville Business Journal

Rachael Jones used to spend 30 minutes to park, walk and find the clinic at Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she gets an infusion of iron twice a year after her kidney transplant. Now she breezes in to a new location in about five minutes, where she's greeted by a private room, a comfy recliner and a flat panel television to spend the two hours it takes to get her infusion. The health clinic at the 100 Oaks mall is a marked change from the 21st Avenue location, a cramped space where Jones sat with about 10 other patients in one room.

Office Lease/Deals: 100 Oaks

May 8, 2008 in Nashville Business Journal

The former 100 Oaks Mall is undergoing a major rebirth with the addition of 19 Vanderbilt University Medical Center clinics. Despite the successes of the 41-year-old mall's exterior tenants, its interior had long been home to little more than mall-walker exercisers and the occasional discount outlet. The mall's prime location off Interstate 65 and closeness to downtown, Green Hills and Cool Springs intrigued Tony Ruggeri, who along with partner Frank Mihalopoulos bought the property from Belz Enterprises in late 2006 for $52.2 million.

The sale of an 850,000-sf retail asset here involved two firsts: it was the first Tennessee buy for a Dallas investment firm and 100 Oaks Mall was the first enclosed shopping mall built in Nashville, back in 1967. 100 Oaks Plaza LLC, led by Anthony T. Ruggeri and Frank Mihalopoulos, purchased the retail asset and the adjoining 100 Oaks office tower from Belz Enterprises of Memphis. The prior relationship between the two sides facilitated the Dallas-based firm's entrance into the market, a spokeswoman for the buyer tells Mihalopoulos declined to reveal the acquisition price, and tells that the cap rate is not really applicable because it is a redevelopment.
