Market at Opitz Crossing was originally acquired on November 18, 2013, via Sterling’s institutional fund Sterling Value Add Partners, LP (“SVAP”) for $17.75 million. Geoffrey Millerd and Mat Adler of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented the Sterling-managed fund in the recent disposition of the asset.

That fund’s capital has been fully allocated and, after the disposition of Market at Opitz Crossing, currentl owns 8 assets in 6 separate markets totaling more than 2.5 million square feet of gross leasable area. Sterling Organization is actively investing on behalf of two newer vintage funds: SVAP II, which focuses on value-add real estate assets where the primary value is retail; and Sterling United Properties I, which focuses on core/stabilized grocery-anchored shopping centers. In total, Sterling Organization owns more than 9 million square feet of retail real estate approaching $2 billion in value.”
