Sawgrass Home Design Center in Sunrise Sells for Nearly $14 Million

The Sawgrass Home Design Center, offering a prime location fronting the world-renown Sawgrass Mills outlet mall, recently sold for $13.85 million. The property at 13001-13191 West Sunrise Blvd. is next door to a massive mixed-used development planning to have over 2,000 homes and is near FLA Live arena, a major concert venue and home to the Florida Panthers.

FVP Sawgrass LLC acquired the 45,088-square-foot center for $5.5 million in late 2011, doubling their investment. Beth Azor of Azor Advisory Services represented FVP in the transaction. Apogee Realty Inc. and Capital Group Realty 2004 LLC represented the buyer, Harvest International Investments.

“The demand for strong-performing retail centers in densely populated areas of South Florida is more intense than it has been in many years,” Azor says, founder and CEO of Weston-based Azor Advisory Services. “There is virtually no new development and very little product available for sale, so we decided to capitalize on the market.”

Azor Advisory services leased and managed the multi-tenant shopping center, built in 1994 and most recently renovated in 2021. It is currently 83% leased with key tenants, including DXL Casual Male, Bella Salon Suites, Lighting Outlet, Compass Research and Caremax. In August 2022, a joint venture between Miami and Spanish real estate firms paid $22 million for the 70,369 square-foot, Aldi-anchored Plantation Town Center located less than a mile away at 2140 West Sunrise Blvd. in Plantation.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
