Commercial Real Estate Transaction Alert
Progressive Real Estate Partners, the leading Inland Empire retail real estate brokerage firm, announced today the sale of Foothill Village, a 24,895 square-foot unanchored multi-tenant retail center located at 14755 Foothill Boulevard in Fontana, California. The property sold for $5.3M in an all-cash 1031 exchange transaction. The 100% occupied neighborhood center is in a densely populated area with more than 140,700 residents within 3-miles earning an average household income of $89,700.
Progressive Real Estate Partners’ Vice President of Investment Sales Greg Bedell, CCIM and Senior Retail Specialist Albert Lopez exclusively marketed the property and represented the seller, a private Los Angeles-based investor. Bedell also represented the buyer, a private Los Angeles-based investor. In addition to helping with the sale of the center, Lopez was also instrumental in creating significant value for the ownership thru the lease-up of approximately 5,000 square-feet. Additionally he successfully renegotiated multiple leases that were month to month at below market rents to long term leases at current market rates.
Built in 2006, Foothill Village features high quality modern architecture and is home to a robust mix of 13 internet-resistant food and service retailers. The center benefits from its excellent location along Foothill Boulevard, a primary retail corridor, with visibility to over 36,600 vehicles per day. Furthermore there is a thriving daytime marketplace of 32,000+ employees in a 3-mile radius driven by the 7.3M square-feet of industrial distribution centers across from the property many of which are occupied by national brands such as Target, UPS and Mercedes Benz. The property is also adjacent to the Heritage Village master planned community with 3,300 single family homes.
According to Bedell, “Unanchored retail centers like Foothill Village have been one of the most challenging type of assets to sell during the pandemic. Fortunately most of the Foothill Village tenants weren’t significantly impacted and, for those that were affected, we worked closely with the ownership to address any rent concerns resulting in the property achieving a high level of rent collection compared to the industry average.”
Bedell added, “The property checked all the boxes for the buyer’s 1031 exchange goals including the center’s prime location, 100% occupancy, internet resistant tenant-mix and positive rent collection history. According to CoStar, Foothill Village is one of only three Inland Empire unanchored multi-tenant retail centers over $5M to have traded since the start of the pandemic.”

Progressive Real Estate Partners Arranges $6.5M Sale of Land for New Home Development in Upland, CA
COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION ALERT
Progressive Real Estate Partners, the leading SoCal Inland Empire retail real estate brokerage firm, announced the sale of 4.84 acres of land at 1400 E. Arrow Highway in Upland, CA for $6.5M in an all-cash transaction.
The Landmark Company, which is a SoCal based real estate investment and development company, purchased the land and has partnered with Century Communities to build the Rose Glen residential development.
The neighborhood will feature 64 two-story single family detached homes with two-car attached garages for an overall density of 13.2 dwelling units per acre. The homes are approximately 1,540 square-feet and will feature a Spanish Colonial and Santa Barbara architectural style. Additional neighborhood features will include open space to accommodate play areas, picnic tables, fitness stations and barbeque areas. Grading is projected to start in July with the first Rose Glen homes being available in the 2nd quarter of 2024.
Progressive Real Estate Partners’ Senior VP Paul Galmarini and Investment Land & Sales specialist Chris Lindholm represented both the Inland Empire based private-party seller and The Landmark Company in the transaction.
Century Communities, Inc. is a publicly traded (NYSE: CCS) top 10 national homebuilder, offering new homes under the Century Communities and Century Complete brands. The Colorado-based company operates in 18 states and over 45 markets including several developments in Southern California’s Inland Empire.
According to Galmarini, “Although the land was zoned light industrial the City of Upland had identified the area as being well suited for residential based on the adjacent uses and proximity to schools and other amenities. With the current housing shortage and California mandates to build more homes, cities across the Inland Empire are being very pro-active to identify new residential opportunities. The rezoning and entitlement process took approximately two years and during that time we worked closely with Landmark to obtain the necessary approvals.”
Lindholm added, “Rose Glen will be an excellent addition to the Upland community and offer prospective homebuyers a great opportunity to acquire a new home with modern interior features and convenient amenities. The property is also just a short distance from Downtown Upland which is undergoing a revitalization and features a variety of shops and restaurants with several new eateries opening this year. Additionally, the Downtown Upland Metrolink train station provides residents easy travel options between San Bernardino and Los Angeles.”

“Meadows Village Center’s traditional grocery and pharmacy offering, suburban neighborhood location, recent renovations including upgraded signage, landscaping, common areas, and more, proved to support increasing tenant performance at the property,” noted Slusher.
“CBRE generated significant offer activity from private 1031 exchange buyers and professional investors, largely fueled by the established Temecula location, Barons Market’s recent lease renewal and the seller’s investment in the property,” continues Slusher. “This sale validates that investor demand for high-performing, grocery-anchored retail continues to drive competitive bid scenarios.”
Originally developed in 2006, Meadows Village Center serves residents of Temecula’s most affluent communities, along with visitors to the region en route to wine country properties accessible along Rancho California Road (22,550 CPD), connecting Meadows Village and Interestate-15 to the west.
