The Major Lafayette shopping center bought by the Tennessee company
One of the Lafayette most visited shopping centers is under new ownership after Tennessee-based GBT Realty Corporation finalized the purchase of River Marketplace for $ 39.5.
The mall, which covers 168,421 square feet on the corner of Ambassador Caffery Parkway and Kaliste Saloon Road, includes Total Wine and More, Books-A-Million, Buffalo Wild Wings and others. The target is a mall “ghost anchor”, which means she owns her building, but still draws customers to the mall. The target will not be owned by GBT Realty Corporation.
RBL Real Estate sold the property it acquired in 2015. JLL Capital Markets represented RBL in the sale.
The mall was built in 2003 and is the most visited shopping destination within an 80-kilometer radius, according to JLL, ranking in the top 2% of shopping destinations in the United States. The intersection at Ambassador and Kaliste Saloom is the busiest in Lafayette, with over 80,000 vehicles passing through each day.
