MIAMI (Aug. 22, 2023)–Indigo Properties and Linkvest Capital today announced the acquisition of an eight-acre development site located at N.W. 138th Street and N.W. 107th Avenue in Hialeah Gardens, FL for approximately $5.83 million. Through the entity Linkvest HG, LLC, the buyers acquired the site from The Alan Kombluh Revocable Trust, The Harris Family Living Trust and The Sidney Crown Revocable Trust. Closing took place Aug. 21st.  

Through a strategic partnership, Indigo Properties and Linkvest Capital plan to develop a vibrant mixed-use project comprising several free-standing retail parcels and a proposed storage facility, enhancing the local community and addressing the growing demand for commercial needs in the area.  

Led by industry veteran Alex Sanchez, Indigo Properties brings over 25 years of real estate experience to this collaboration. The partnership leverages the synergies of both teams, who have previously worked together on over a dozen successful commercial projects and acquisitions across the southeast and marks the continuation of their co-investment strategy in commercial real estate. 

“This acquisition echoes our commitment to the community, responding to commercial demands with strategic investment,” stated Alex Sanchez, founder and president, Indigo Properties.  

“Our history of successful collaboration with Indigo Properties sets the stage for this new chapter, and we look forward to working together to help infuse this area with a dynamic mix of tenants,” added Camilo Niño, principal, Linkvest Capital. 

“This project will replace a long-neglected site at a key intersection and help improve the quality of life for many residents,” said Day Pitney Attorney Daniel “Danny” Diaz Leyva, who represented Linkvest HG LLC in the deal. “The joint venture’s vision and experience will deliver a project that will help expand the city’s tax base and bring much-needed quality retail to the neighborhood. I am excited to be a part of a seasoned team of developers.” 

The site is ideally situated at a signalized corner intersection and boasts approximately 1,300 linear feet of frontage on N.W. 138th Street with recent traffic counts of over 26,000 vehicles daily. Northwest 107th Avenue is fully approved for lane expansion to accommodate several million square feet of new industrial development to the north of the property.  The intersection is the ideal hub for a plethora of retail tenants. 

Recent years have witnessed remarkable development in the area, highlighted by the construction of numerous apartment complexes, townhomes and industrial expansion. This accelerated growth has led to the construction, permitting, or initiation of more than 4,000 new homes within a two-mile radius of the development site. Notably, the area has also attracted prominent retailers, employers and distribution centers including Boeing repair warehouses and CGI impact window distributors. 

The Hialeah Gardens submarket is bounded by I-75, Hialeah Gardens Blvd, SR 27, and the Florida Turnpike. Within a half-mile radius, prominent commercial establishments such as Publix, Home Depot, TJ Maxx, Home Goods and Burlington contribute to the area’s growth. Additionally, with a median household income of $87,091 within a 1-mile radius, the project is well-positioned to attract national retail tenants seeking to connect with an affluent consumer base. The site’s accessibility is enhanced by its proximity to key transportation routes. Less than a mile from Okeechobee Road and with quick access to the Florida Turnpike, the site is strategically positioned to serve the expanding population in the surrounding areas.  

Indigo Properties and Linkvest Capital are committed to delivering a transformative mixed-use project that aligns with the evolving needs of the community and capitalizes on the flourishing growth in the Hialeah Gardens submarket.
