Stonecrest, Ga. — Hallmark Venture Group Inc. has acquired The Mall at Stonecrest, a 1.2 million-square-foot regional mall in metro Atlanta. The seller and sales price were not disclosed, but The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the mall was last appraised at $84 million.
Hallmark Venture is planning to transform the 29-acre mall site into a mixed-use destination that will include apartments, a sports and entertainment complex, cosmetic superstore, aquarium, medical offices, transportation facilities and restaurants. A construction timeline for the redevelopment was not announced.
The Mall at Stonecrest is home to more than 100 retailers including Macy’s, Dillard’s, J.C. Penney, H&M, Forever 21, Victoria’s Secret and Round One. The mall’s occupancy rate was more than 90 percent at the time of sale, according to Hallmark Venture.
The Boca Raton, Florida.-based buyer is retaining Urban Retail Properties to manage and lease Stonecrest. The Chicago-based firm has managed the mall since 2012 and will oversee the development of the mall’s next phase.
