Prudent Growth Partners has acquired Mint Hill, North Carolina-based Lawyers Square neighborhood retail center. The purchase price was $6.4 million.


Prudent Growth Partners, LLC, a Chapel Hill, NC based private equity real estate firm, has completed its acquisition of the Lawyers Square neighborhood retail center, a 54,000 square foot Dollar General anchored shopping center in the rapidly growing Charlotte suburb of Mint Hill. The transaction price was $6.4 million, with $2.3 million raised from its equity investors to complete the purchase.

Lawyers Square, located at 9229 Lawyers Square Road at the intersection of Lawyers Road and Wilson Grove Road, has many popular local tenants, including Dollar General, Cor-Fitness Martial Arts, Pizza Hut, Dunamis Church, and several popular restaurants.

“This is exactly the kind of neighborhood center we like to own,” said Tom Hahn, President of PGP. “It is well established, nearby residents all support it, and it should benefit from the continued growth in the area. We are planning some nice updates and improvements to the property in the coming months.”
