and signage. The seller is the original developer, and he did an amazing job collecting an all-star cast of tenants to cater to the local submarket and community.” said Dougherty. The buyer, a limited liability company, was secured and represented by Dougherty and Woodard. “Both buyer

and seller should be com- mended for their patience and perseverance throughout the process. We put the deal under contract a few weeks before the initial quarantine and faced additional chal- lenges such as new zoning and land approvals, two instances of severe property damage,

and the escrow timeline being extended out for almost a year but both buyer and seller stuck it out.” said Woodard. Hunting Park Plaza is lo- cated at 4221 N Broad St. in Philadelphia. The center contains multiple national credit tenants including Pop- eyes (Subsidiary of Restaurant
