Walgreens is the sole occupant of the 15,020 square foot retail building that was developed in 2001.

Highway 6 South is a major thoroughfare in the area and experiences traffic counts in excess of 56,400 vehicles per day.

Additionally, the immediate area includes Home Depot and LA Fitness. The property is fully leased to Walgreens with over seventeen years remaining on the primary lease term.
Randy Blankstein and Jimmy Goodman of The Boulder Group represented the seller, a Midwest investor, in the transaction. The buyer was a high net worth individual based in Texas.

Walgreens is an investment grade rated company with a Standard & Poor’s rating of BBB and has over 8,500 locations nationwide.
