Tampa, FL – June 1, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — A mixed-use team of capital markets professionals from CBRE’s Tampa and Atlanta offices has been retained as the exclusive advisors for Redstone Investments, the new owners of Tampa, Florida’s Austin Center. The CBRE team includes Jay O’Meara, Dale Peterson, Dave Conn and Sean Williams – a combination of capital markets experts focused on office, retail and multifamily.
Redstone Investments closed on the five-building, 10-acre, 300,000-sq.ft. mixed-use retail and office space in April 2015. The property was developed by the late Tampa civic leader Al Austin in the late 1960s and has remained in the Austin family until Redstone’s recent acquisition.
Drawn to the prestige and prime location of the iconic Tampa development in the heart of Westshore district, a premier urban destination, Redstone is considering options and seeking the expertise and direction from CBRE. The primary responsibility, according to Lyle Fogarty, President of Redstone Properties, is to provide a smooth transition for the tenants in place, as the new owners and CBRE determine the most viable long-term strategies for the project.
The property’s owner is looking for a visionary development and investment partner to jointly determine the most viable long-term strategies for the property.
