Austin, TX, June 16, 2012 --( CASE Commercial Real Estate Partners (CASE) is pleased to announce the sale of The Northshore Marina at the Hollows -- a 198 rental slip marina on 12.281 acres of land located on the north shores of Lake Travis -- to Huffines Communities, a Dallas based real estate development and investment group. The marina is located at 6612 Lantern View Drive in Jonestown, Texas, about a 30-minute drive from Austin, within the master-planned community of The Hollows lakeside community, a 1,400 acre development presenting resort-style living in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.

CASE’s Bruce Endendyk, Managing Director; and John Endendyk, Senior Director; marketed the asset on behalf of the seller, Branch Banking and Trust (BB&T Bank), a leading financial-holding company, that foreclosed on the property in December 2011.

“As soon as we listed the property back in December of last year, we had several buyers immediately interested,” says B. Endendyk. “Huffines plans to continue to operate the marina and to open a ship store that will serve the boating community’s needs for drinks, ice, and fuel. We are excited to have found an enthusiastic buyer that will serve the needs of boaters on Lake Travis.”

The marina is comprised of a deep water floating marina containing 196 covered boat slips with electricity, cable television, phone connections and fresh water supply, a ship store with filling station, and two wave attenuators. In addition, the Property offers an office with a small kitchen and a covered common area with a barbeque pit and lounge chairs. Constructed in 2002, the site includes a 7.28 acre parcel associated with the marina itself as well as a 5-acre parcel containing the 148-space concrete parking lot.

The Northshore Marina at the Hollows was twice distinguished as Marina of the Year out of over 200 fresh and salt water marinas by the Texas Marina Association in 2006 and 2009.
