H.G. Hill Buys Mapco Express Unit

Pays $3.6 million for one-acre site adjoining Hill Center

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Shortly after an investment company purchased two Mapco Express gas stations in Memphis, Tenn., another company has purchased a Mapco Express location in Nashville, Tenn. The H.G. Hill Realty Co. LLC has expanded its footprint at its Belle Meade Hill Center, reported The Nashville Business Journal.

According to a Davidson County deed cited by the newspaper, the company purchased a parcel for $3.6 million late last month. The site, just under one acre, adjoins the company's Hill Center, anchored by a Publix grocery store.

According to the Metro Nashville Property Assessor Office, the site was most recently appraised for $1.9 million, including the value of the gas station, said the report.

Nashville, Tenn.-based H.G. Hill Realty serves Middle Tennessee as owner of one of the largest privately held real-estate portfolios in the Southeast, it said.

As reported in CSP Daily News earlier this week, BAR II LLC has bought a Mapco Express Inc. portfolio for a combined $1.2 million. The sales closed September 24 in special warranty deeds. Quitclaim deeds also were filed for the two properties, which are in Bartlett and the Rhodes College area.

The 2,560-square-foot Bartlett property that sits on 1.16 acres, appraised at $852,000, went for $700,000. The 1,219-square-foot The Rhodes College property, appraised at $238,100, went for $475,000.

Germantown, Tenn.-based BAR II, a limited-liability company, financed the purchase with a $1.4 million loan through First Capital Bank.
