Plainwell, Mich.

The Hampshire Companies, a full-service, private real estate investment firm with equity in assets valued at over $2 billion, has announced the acquisition of a 113,481-square-foot retail property located at 1227 Michigan 89 in Plainwell, Mich. from AC Green Associates, LLC.

The property, consisting of 98,839 square feet of retail space and an 18,642-square-foot garden center, is fully leased to The Home Depot, the world's largest home improvement specialty retailer. Conveniently located near the intersection of state highway M-89 and U.S. Highway 131, the property offers high visibility along a heavily traveled retail corridor, providing easy access and excellent signage opportunities. 

"Having a long-term lease deal with a strong-credit, national tenant like The Home Depot already in place made this an excellent opportunity for us to expand our retail portfolio," said Rob Schmitt, a Principal of The Hampshire Companies.  "The property's premier location in a high traffic area coupled with The Home Depot's strong customer base fit perfectly within our retail investment strategy."

Christopher Rider, Esq. of Day Pitney, LLP represented The Hampshire Companies in the transaction.  The seller was represented by John R. Marquis, Esq. of Warner, Norcross & Judd, LLP.
