"We consider RK and Whole Foods to be the perfect combination and believe they will be the catalyst for development of the remaining acreage in Alexandrine Place." JoAnn S. Wheless

JoAnn S. Wheless, Associate Broker with Sealy Real Estate Services, a leading Shreveport based commercial real estate firm, announced today the sale of a portion of Alexandrine Place to RK Commercial Properties, Inc. of Houston, Texas, project developers for Whole Foods Market.

Whole Foods plans to build a 39,000 square foot facility at this location, its first in North Louisiana. A total of 8.2 acres will be utilized for this portion of the development which will allow for some additional retail shop space to be built across from Whole Foods. Construction is scheduled to begin first quarter of 2014.

“There have been multiple offers over the years for the same parcel of land as that being sold to RK Commercial Properties, Inc. for lease to Whole Foods Market. A combination of factors resulted in this successful transaction. Of importance to the land owners were first, the quality and track record of the developer seeking to purchase the property for development; and, second, the end user represented by that developer. We consider RK and Whole Foods to be that perfect combination and believe they will be the catalyst for development of the remaining acreage in Alexandrine Place.”

JoAnn Wheless is the representing broker for the seller, Querbes Land Company, L.L.C. JoAnn has worked with the Querbes Land Company, L.L.C. on the Alexandrine Place project since September 1997. Beginning with 130 acres of vacant and available land, she has guided the process through master development planning, zoning, contract negotiations, transaction closings, and the upcoming closing of the transaction with RK Commercial Properties, Inc.

Located on East 70th Street in Shreveport, Louisiana, Alexandrine Place is a mixed use development which is home to Pierremont Place Subdivision, Orr BMW, Community Trust Bank, Ouichita Independent Bank, Time-It Lube Car Wash, SportSpectrum, the Design Center, Iberia Bank, and the Urgent Care Center.
