COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION ALERT
Deal has one of the lowest cap rates ever recorded for a single-tenant net lease QSR in the Inland Empire per CoStar records
SRS Real Estate Partners’ National Net Lease Group has announced the $2.67 million ground lease (land ownership) sale of a newly developed freestanding retail property occupied by Taco Bell at 1460 Sixth Street in Norco, CA. A franchisee for Taco Bell recently signed a 25-year ground lease at the site and opened for business.
SRS National Net Lease Group’s Managing Principals Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther represented the seller, a local developer. The buyer, a private investor from Southern California, was represented by Hunter Morgan of CURB Realty. The closing cap rate was 3.93 percent, one of the lowest cap rates ever recorded for a single-tenant net lease QSR (quick service restaurant) in the Inland Empire per CoStar records.
Situated on .49 acres, the property totals 2,558 square feet (sf) and includes a drive-thru. The asset is part of Norco Gateway Shopping Center which is anchored by an 18,000-sf Grocery Outlet and 6,000 sf of future retail shops. Other nearby retailers include Rite Aid, Stater Bros, Boot Barn, 99 Cents Store, and Dollar Tree, among others.
“This is the second asset we have sold at Norco Gateway Center as part of a break-up strategy in order to maximize the value for our seller/developer client,” said Mousavi. “In October 2020, our SRS team completed the $6 million sale of the Grocery Outlet property which sold at close to a 5 percent cap rate. Both the Taco Bell and Grocery Outlet sales were executed as pre-sale opportunities during COVID.”
“Single-tenant, QSR assets like Taco Bell are now even more highly coveted by investors in this pandemic environment as they seek cash flow with an essential, name brand tenant over the long-term,” said Luther.
The infill property has a population of more than 284,000 residents and 84,000 employees within a five-mile radius. It is also adjacent to and highly visible from the 15 freeway.
SRS’ National Net Lease Group has continued its explosive growth in the past year, and plans to continue expansion of its teams across the country throughout the remainder of 2020. SRS’ National Net Lease Group and the western region of SRS’ Investment Properties Group successfully completed more than 330 sales to date in 2020 valued at more than $1.35 billion. Of those transactions SRS’ National Net Lease Group (NNLG) has closed 250 transactions since the COVID-19 crisis began. These transactions alone are valued at more than $1 billion. Additionally, the group has more than 500 individual assets under LOI or in escrow and $1.8 billion in assets currently listed for sale. The National Net Lease Group has more than 50 net lease professionals nationwide, all collaborating on one central platform, with leadership, underwriting, and marketing efforts strategically located in Southern California.
Avison Young brokers sale of a newly developed 205,589-sf industrial building in Perris, CA
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
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.
