    SELLS FOR $ 15.55 MILLION.


JANUARY 03, 2013– Owners of the historic property where Macy’s department store is located in downtown Miami have sold it for $ 15.55 million or $ 322.26 per square foot to New York Based Aetna Realty Group. The property comprises most of the land that the Macy’s store occupies at Flagler Street and Miami Ave., while Macy’s Inc owns a smaller parcel on the east side of Miami Ave. This sale of 48,000 square feet straddling  Miami Avenue on behalf of 22 descendants of Miami business pioneer Richard Ashby. Ashby originally leased the property to Burdines in 1917 for about $ 30,000 a year. That historic lease rate was all that Macy’s was paying on that portion of the property under its old lease. The old lease was a 99 years agreement so it  was set to expire  in a few years.     Macy’s struck  a new lease with Aetna and the store will continue operating for the time being. Ashby descendants were tracked down to Albania, Scotland, California and other locations.  Three bidders went to the finish line on the bid. Aetna will have to close on Macy’s Inc. portion if they want to develop the entire block area some day. A walking bridge, underground tunnels and the Metromover connect the two Macy’s across Miami Avenue. Anticipated changes to the tax law would have sent the deal right back to the drawing board.
