COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION ALERT

IHP Capital Partners, one of the nation’s most prominent providers of equity financing for residential real estate development, today announced the sale of 250 finished single family lots within the Braverde master-planned community to public homebuilder Richmond American Homes. Braverde is located in Menifee, Calif. and planned for 511 new homes of varying sizes and architectural styles. As owner of Braverde, IHP has assembled a seasoned development team to design and build the community’s infrastructure and homesites. The project’s remaining 261 lots are currently under construction and will become available to homebuilders in 2021.

The lots Richmond American acquired are located in the southern portion of Braverde and are Phase I of the project. This includes 54 5,000 minimum square foot lots, 109 5,500 minimum square foot lots, 576,000 minimum square foot lots and 30 7,000 minimum square foot lots.  Richmond American plans to begin construction in Q1 2021 and offer its first sales in Q2.

“IHP is excited to see Richmond American as the first builder to deliver new homes at Braverde,” said Blaine Peterson, managing director at IHP Capital Partners. “Braverde is a thoughtfully-designed community in the southern Inland Empire, a submarket experiencing tremendous demand for single family homes from homebuyers in 2020. Richmond American is a top-tier homebuilder with a track record of providing quality homes in this region. We believe its team will do a wonderful job bringing Braverde to life.”

Surrounded by Menifee’s spacious views and natural landscape, Braverde offers a plethora of amenities to residents seeking an outdoor-focused lifestyle. Many pocket parks and trails are strategically located throughout the neighborhood and the 15-acre Veterans Park defines the east side of the community. The large park provides ballparks, play areas, tot lots, trails and event lawns. Beyond the park, adjacent to the community is the newly built Liberty High School, which opens Fall 2021.

Driven by pent up demand for new housing in California and a shift in consumer preferences to more spacious living options in suburban environments, the Inland Empire is experiencing increased demand for new homes in 2020. According to Land Advisors Organization, a leading residential land brokerage firm that led the Braverde Phase I transaction, total new home sales in 2020 have already substantially surpassed 2019’s totals with a month remaining before yearend.

“Menifee is the most active new home submarket in the Inland Empire, supported by its highly ranked schools and accelerated buyer interest from young families,” said Brian Carricaburu, founding principal and listing broker at Land Advisors Organization. “IHP is bringing a well-designed community with a range of homes in a variety of sizes to the submarket at a time when nearby competing projects are nearing final sales. This is attracting many public homebuilders that are eager to meet homebuyer demand, positioning IHP for future success.”

IHP acquired the 170-acre Braverde property in an unimproved condition in August 2019. IHP and its development team are in progress developing the community’s remaining infrastructure, which is expected to be complete by Q4 2021.  

As a strategic partner for developers and homebuilders throughout the western U.S., IHP has 17 joint venture residential projects in various stages of development throughout Southern California, including Legado, a master-planned community comprised of approximately 1,000 residential units also located in Menifee, six miles north of Braverde.

Avison Young brokers sale of a newly developed 205,589-sf industrial building in Perris, CA

Published

Avison Young announced today the sale of a 205,589 square-foot industrial building located at 100 Walnut Avenue in Perris, CA.

Avison Young Principals Cody Lerner and Stan Nowak represented the seller/developer, Los Angeles-based developer and investor Dedeaux Properties LLC. The buyer, a private investor from Southern California, was represented by Carol Taubman of Westgate Industrial Properties.

“When Dedeaux Properties acquired the land a few years ago, the Inland Empire East submarket wasn’t as strong as it is today. It has since become an increasingly desirable area as land becomes less available,” said Lerner.

Lerner added, “We are pleased that Dedeaux entrusted us to execute its exit strategy, which has successfully enabled the company to reach its financial and operational goals for this facility.”

Nowak added, “The Inland Empire continues to be one of the hottest industrial markets in the nation, where user demand is outpacing construction deliveries despite a robust development pipeline. We believe this trend will continue for the foreseeable future and will bolster development and capital investment despite macro-economic headwinds.”

The recently construction facility is situated on 9.56 acres, and includes a 36-foot clear height, 27 dock doors and 1,200 amps of power.

Transaction Marks DCG’s 10th Building in California, Bringing Total Footprint to 3.4 Million Square Feet

Commercial Real Estate Transaction Alert

Newmark​ announces DCG Fulfillment has signed a 189,280-square-foot industrial lease at 13481 Valley Boulevard in Fontana, California. Newmark Executive Managing Directors Mark Kegans, SIOR and Ron Washle, SIOR represented DCG Fulfillment, a family-owned third-party logistics provider based in California’s Inland Empire.

“We are happy to have completed another successful transaction for DCG Fulfillment,” said Kegans. “With vacancy in the Inland Empire below 1%, options for tenants are few, and we were pleased to secure this prime distribution location for the company.”

DCG’s new space is part of a larger 600,080-square-foot industrial warehouse property located in the Inland Empire West. The property features cross-dock loading, approximately 5,000 square feet of office space, 35 dock-high doors, one grade-level door, 32-foot clear height, K-17 sprinklers, 800-amp power and parking for 116 automobiles and 150 truck trailers.

The property is situated just off Interstate 10 in Fontana, approximately 45 miles east of Los Angeles. The location provides access to major logistics and transportation locations along the West Coast, including Los Angeles International Airport and the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

According to Newmark Research, industrial vacancy in the Inland Empire remains the lowest in the U.S. at just 0.8% as of the second quarter of 2022. Occupancies of new construction deliveries propelled quarterly net absorption of 3.9 million square feet. There is currently 39.9 million square feet of industrial space under construction in the market, a record high. As the California Federal Reserve continues to increase interest rates to battle inflation, a gradual cooling of the unprecedented industrial market fundamentals across the U.S. is likely. However, as the nation’s top industrial market, vacancy will likely be better insulated in the Inland Empire if a recession occurs.

SRS’ Investment Properties Group Brokers $35 Million Sale of Major Portion of One Eleven La Quinta Center, a 154,383-SF Retail Community Center in La Quinta, CA

Published

SRS Real Estate Partners’ Investment Properties Group (IPG) announced it has completed the $35 million sale of a 154,383-square-foot portion of One Eleven La Quinta Center, a retail community center located at 78959 CA-111 in La Quinta, CA.

SRS Senior Vice Presidents Chris Tramontano and John Redfield represented the seller, a Coachella Valley-based private family office. The buyer, Anaheim, CA-based Milan Capital Management, represented themselves. Terrison Quinn and Casey Mahony of SRS Real Estate Partners have and remain exclusive leasing agents for the asset which was 79% occupied at the close of escrow.

Tenants in the center that were part of the property sale include Ross Stores, Staples, Petco, Big 5 Sporting Goods, among others. The center is shadow anchored by tenants that include Stater Bros, Hobby Lobby, and Kohl’s.

Built in phases between 1992 and 2002, this is the first sale of the center since development over 30 years ago. One Eleven La Quinta Center totals 852,465 square feet and is situated on 19.57 acres of land. An irreplaceable highly-successful center, One Eleven La Quinta Shopping Center is located at one of the best intersections in all of the Coachella Valley, Washington & 111 visible to over 70,000 cars per day.

“The sale of One Eleven La Quinta Center was a very detailed complex transaction with several obstacles to overcome, including multiple loans on different portions of the property, a rising interest rate environment and a new Panera Bread pad development still in the contingency period that was critical to the proforma NOI that was underwritten.  I’m proud of our investment sales and leasing teams for coming together and providing excellent execution for both the seller and buyer,” said Tramontano.

“After 30 years of successful operation of One Eleven La Quinta, the seller was ready to pass the baton to a great southern California operator. This transaction had its challenges and many moving pieces, fortunately all outside of the high-quality real estate that was purchased. Chris Nichelson and the Milan Capital Management team demonstrated at great lengths their expertise in completing this transaction. This was a team effort and I’m excited to see the value Milan and the SRS leasing teams add to take the center to new heights,” said Redfield.

“We have been working with the seller and the SRS team for many years to acquire this well-located asset,” said Chris Nichelson, President of Milan Capital Management. “Their professionalism and diligence helped us overcome numerous challenges to get this deal done in an increasingly difficult environment. We are excited to have the opportunity to continue the original developer’s legacy, and to take this property to the next level.”

“One Eleven La Quinta Center is one of the preeminent retail centers for the Coachella Valley since its inception. It was important for the seller that the project’s legacy of success endures. Milan Capital Management’s level of sophistication and vision for the center made it clear they were the perfect buyer. The collaboration with the SRS capital markets team was critical to completing what was a very complicated transaction to the benefit of both parties. Under the stewardship of Chris Nichelson and Milan Capital Management’s team, we already have several new tenants in negotiation and the new Panera drive-thru is scheduled to open this fall,” shared Mahony.

Located along Highway 111, the region’s major retail corridor, the property is within a dense, affluent trade area with a population of 160,000 and more than 58,000 employees within a five-mile radius.

In 2021, SRS’ Investment Properties Group (IPG) and National Net Lease Group (NNLG) completed more than $3.1 billion in deal volume comprised of 899 transactions in 49 states, and currently have more than $2 billion in property on the market, with nearly 200 properties sold year-to-date in 2022.
