MPG, through its affiliate Market Street Realty LLC, acquired 1.279 acres at this intersection in August  2012 for a price of $1,176,000.  The property was leased to and occupied by First Bank & Trust at the time.  Following the acquisition, MPG negotiated a termination of the First Bank & Trust lease and secured a new 20 year ground lease with McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE:MCD).

MPG sold the project to The Christopher Trust for a sales price of $2,000,000 on March 17, 2014. The Bolder Group represented the Buyer and Mid-Atlantic Real Estate Partners, Inc., represented Market Street Realty, LLC.  McDonalds is expected to open in the second quarter of 2014.
