Buckner Plaza
Colliers’ Retail Investment Group is pleased to announce the sale of Buckner Plaza at 3208 Holland Road in Virginia Beach from Club Forest Buckner, LLC to VB-GC-RA 18 LLC for $6.426 million. 

Buckner Plaza is a 63,500-square-foot grocery anchored neighborhood center located on a 5.48-acre parcel along Holland Road, a major artery in Virginia Beach. Currently 95.4% leased, the center’s anchor tenants include Food Lion and Dollar General. Food Lion has occupied the center since its development in 1986. The center was renovated in 2015. 

“The committed and high-performing grocery and discount anchors, sought after essential and e-commerce resistant tenant mix, as well as the strategic location within the densely populated trade-area made Buckner Plaza an excellent investment opportunity,” said Jeffrey Fritz, vice president of investment sales for Colliers.

Fritz and Jay O’Donnell, first vice president with Colliers’ Retail Investment Group represented the seller, and Michael Ettel, senior associate with Colliers represented the buyer.
