Published

on

Planet Fitness is projected to open in early 2020 & will occupy a portion of a former Kmart store

Rancho Cucamonga, CA – July 16, 2019  – Progressive Real Estate Partners, the leading Inland Empire retail brokerage firm, announced today that it has completed a lease with Planet Fitness for a new 24,345 square-foot location at 1670 E. Fourth Street in Ontario, California.

Planet Fitness will be occupying a portion of a former approximately 100,000 square-foot Kmart store that is being sub-divided into three anchor spaces. Progressive Real Estate Partners is currently marketing the other two spaces.  The site is part of the Vineyard Freeway Center with excellent identity and visibility to over 237,000 cars per day on the heavily traveled I-10 freeway which is a major east/west thoroughfare running from Los Angeles to Palm Springs.

Progressive Real Estate Partners’ Senior VP Paul Galmarini and VP of Leasing and Sales Paul Su exclusively marketed the property and represented the lessor in the transaction.  Townsand Cropsey with SRS Real Estate represented Planet Fitness.

The new fitness center is expected to open in early 2020 and will be operated by one of the top Planet Fitness franchisees with over 30 locations.  Members will enjoy a wide selection of high-quality, Planet Fitness-branded cardio, circuit and weight-training equipment. The gym will also feature a Beauty Angels area with tanning booths, massage chairs and hydro massage beds.  With over 1800 locations and 13.6 million members, Planet Fitness is well-known for its affordable $10 a month standard membership plan and commitment to a welcoming, non-intimidating environment called the “Judgement Free Zone”.

The 151,000 square-foot Vineyard Freeway Center is currently undergoing an extensive exterior renovation that will include new storefront facades, the addition of more parking and upgraded pylon and monument signage.   The center is occupied by a variety of retail, service and food users including a recently opened Golden Corral restaurant.  The dense in-fill location also enjoys excellent demographics with more than 386,000 residents with an average household income of $73,000+ in a 5-mile radius.  Furthermore, there is a strong daytime population of 190,000+ employees within 5-miles.

According to Paul Su, “We faced a number of hurdles in leasing this space and worked closely with the landlord to make the deal happen.  In addition to facilitating the termination of Kmart’s lease, the CC&Rs had to be modified to allow the use which also required obtaining the City of Ontario’s approval.”

Paul Galmarini added, “The strong demographics, excellent location, outstanding freeway signage and visibility were all very attractive to Planet Fitness making this a perfect site for them to open a new location. It is also good news for the shopping center having a new anchor tenant that will help drive more traffic to the property. As consumers have become more health and wellness conscious, fitness centers have rapidly become popular anchor tenants.”

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

Published

on

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.

Newmark Represents DCG Fulfillment in 190,000- Square-Foot Warehouse Lease in California’s Inland Empire

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

on

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.
