"These are all well-maintained shopping centers, each with a desirable tenant mix and proximity to high-traffic retail corridors," Schmoldt said.
Schmoldt added the owners have maintained the properties for decades, and recently decided it was the right time to sell. He said the sellers received 11 offers, some of which were for the full portfolio while others were for individual properties. Interest came from local, regional and national buyers.
The offering represented an opportunity for Baceline to "substantially increase the size of its portfolio in Wisconsin," said Schmoldt.
According to its website
, Baceline owns seven other Wisconsin properties, all but one of which are located in the Milwaukee area. Other recent acquisitions by Baceline include the Woodlands Market
in Menomonee Falls for $2.7 million and the Sequoia Center
in Milwaukee for $3.6 million.
