Published

The firm has closed the sale of a 228,912 square-foot Temecula industrial asset for $40.75M after achieving a 41% value increase; This comes on the heels of Stos’ recent San Diego cold store facility sale through which the firm achieved a 123% value increase

Stos Partners, one of the most active commercial real estate investment and management firms in Southern California, has announced the $40.75 million sale of a 228,912 square-foot industrial asset in the Inland Empire submarket of Temecula, California, bringing its total sale volume for the month of July 2021 to $82 million.

“Our two most recent sales demonstrate the magnitude of value creation that is possible in the current market with the right industrial investment strategy,” says CJ Stos, Principal at Stos Partners. “We were able to successfully turn $50 million in investments into $82 million in sales within an 18-month ownership period. This reflects the strength of our investment platform as well as the ever-increasing institutional appetite for well-positioned, well-located industrial product.”

Stos’ most recent sale in Temecula was to a San Diego-based private institution. Stos initially acquired the asset for $28.9 million in April of 2020 and implemented a value-add program through which the firm successfully secured a long-term tenant and ultimately achieved a 41% value increase.

“We recognized early on that this asset was located on a path of growth, with a tremendous amount of unrealized value,” says Stos. “This sale speaks to our expertise in acquisitions and execution, and to the depth of our broker relationships, through which we were able to identify this asset and complete its strategic lease-up and sale.”

The firm’s recent transactions also reflect continued demand in the industrial sector, buoyed by strong local fundamentals, as well as emerging and accelerated trends over the past year and a half, notes Jason Richards, Partner at Stos Partners.

“We are extremely well-capitalized and have an exceptional understanding of these Southern California industrial markets, so we are able to move and act quickly to close deals and execute our business plans when the timing is right,” says Richards.

According to Jay Boyle, Executive Vice President at Stos Partners: “While many firms hit pause and sidelined early in the pandemic, we had the foresight, confidence, and expertise to forge ahead. Because of this, we were able to create rapid value for our partners and investors, and ultimately achieve these respective 123% and 41% value increases in a relatively short hold period. These fundamentals bode well for the future, as we continue to actively acquire well-located industrial and office properties throughout Southern California and Texas.”

The firm’s most recently sold property is located at 42301 Zevo Drive in Temecula, California. Darla Longo, Barbara Perrier, Louay Alsadek and Hunter Rowe with CBRE, and Bob Willingham with Kidder Matthews and Scott Stewart with Lee & Associates represented Stos Partners as the seller in this transaction.

Hanley Investment Group Completes Sale of Chipotle Drive-Thru Anchored Pad in Palm Desert, Calif., for $3.86 Million

Published

on

Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced today that the firm arranged the sale of a fully occupied, multi-tenant retail pad property in Palm Desert, California. The property is anchored by a new Chipotle Mexican Grill with a drive-thru “Chipotlane” near the Interstate 10 freeway Washington Street on/off ramp. This transaction closed at $3.86 million, marking the 17th Chipotle property sold by Hanley Investment Group in the last 24 months.

Hanley Investment Group’s Executive Vice Presidents Bill Asher and Jeff Lefko represented the seller, a private investor based in Los Angeles. The buyer, a private 1031 exchange investor from San Diego, was represented by Omar Hussein of Beacon Realty Advisors in Del Mar, California.

“We generated multiple qualified offers and created a competitive bidding environment to achieve maximum market pricing,” said Asher. “We procured an all-cash 1031 exchange buyer and negotiated a 21-day due diligence period and a timely closing to help accommodate the buyer’s exchange requirement.”

Built in 2008, the 8,500-square-foot, four-tenant retail pad sits on 1.01 acres at 39575 Washington Street in the heart of Coachella Valley. Chipotle Mexican Grill occupies approximately 40% of the building with a new 10-year triple-net corporate lease (NYSE: CMG). Other tenants include Cornerstone Pharmacy, Luxury Nails & Spa, and Keller Williams Realty Coachella Valley | Jelmberg Team.

The property is strategically located at a signalized intersection on Washington Street, a major north/south corridor in the Coachella Valley (46,350 cars per day). It is ideally positioned one block from the Interstate 10 entrance/exit for Washington Boulevard (107,750 cars per day). Interstate 10 connects Los Angeles to San Bernardino County, Riverside County, and Phoenix, Arizona. The Chipotle-anchored property is also directly across from Sun City Palm Desert, a 1,600-acre gated community with over 5,000 homes and more than 9,000 residents.

Surrounding retailers include Stater Bros., EOS Fitness, Bank of America, DaVita Dialysis, Del Taco, McDonald’s, Starbucks, Taco Bell, and Walgreens. The property is less than 2.5 miles from the new Acrisure Arena, an 11,000-seat indoor arena that opened in December 2022 and is home to an NHL minor league ice hockey team.

Palm Desert is the geographic center of the Coachella Valley, a rapidly growing region in Southern California. The average household income within a three-mile radius is over $110,000. The population within a three-mile radius of the investment property has increased by 65% between 2000 and 2021. Within one mile, the number of households has increased by 44% during the same period.

The Coachella Valley attracts over three million visitors each year and hosts major events such as the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (the world’s largest music festival, attracting over 250,000 visitors), the Stagecoach Festival (the second largest country music festival with over 85,000 visitors), and the Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival (attracting 315,000 visitors). The region is also home to four casinos and more than 130 golf courses.

Asher adds, “Chipotle is one of the more sought-after QSR drive-thru tenants in the marketplace right now, and it showed based on the high-interest level we received on the property. The sale of the Chipotle-anchored pad building in Palm Desert demonstrates there is still an active buyer pool for top-tier multi-tenant retail pad investments in today’s market.”

Hanley Investment Group has sold $1.8 billion in retail properties in the Inland Empire, including $470 million in volume in the last 48 months.

CBRE’s NRP – Newport Beach Retail Investment Team Closes 1,000th Retail Investment Transaction, Launches Retail Private Capital Team

Published

on

CBRE’s NRP – Newport Beach Retail Investment Team announced the completion of its 1,000th retail investment sale transaction with the closing of Komar Desert Center in La Quinta, California. Komar Desert Center consists of multiple pad retail buildings shadow-anchored by the only Costco in the Desert. The property sold for $26.4 million to a private capital investor, completing a 1031 exchange.

Led by Phil Voorhees, the Newport Beach, California team, successfully closed 1,000 retail investment sale transactions, including 359 anchored shopping centers, 267 strip shopping centers, 356 single-tenant-net-leased (STNL) investments, and a variety of other retail properties, totaling nearly $14.8 billion in value and encompassing over 75 million square feet throughout the west. Since 2012, the team achieved an average of 97% of the list price on 581 closed transactions, amounting to nearly $8.8 billion. The team consists of 19 members and leverages CBRE’s extensive resources to deliver exceptional results for institutional and private clients.

“This is a day that is – at the same time – hard to imagine and inevitable,” said team leader Phil Voorhees, Vice Chairman at CBRE. “When I arrived at CBRE in 2001, Todd Goodman (retired) and Preston Fetrow already managed one of the few retail investment teams in the country focused solely on retail investments. Now we have closed the 1,000th retail investment sale transaction and expanded the team’s footprint to include strip centers and STNL investments. The team’s remarkable track record of accuracy and consistency over more than two decades is extremely gratifying.”

With its 1,000th successful transaction completed, Voorhees is stepping down from CBRE’s National Retail Partners platform to focus on private capital assets and clients, and personal investments. Voorhees and his longtime partner, John Read, will co-lead the private capital team and expand throughout the region.

Jimmy Slusher will assume leadership of the Newport Beach National Retail Partners team, concentrating on institutional clients and premier retail assets. The Newport Beach NRP team is part of CBRE’s National Retail Partners platform, a national group covering every region around the country advising real estate investment trusts (REITs), operators, developers and pension fund clients, the institutional cohort targeting larger format retail investments.

“In hindsight, the team laid a foundation of success, one successfully closed transaction at a time,” noted Slusher, regarding the 1,000th team transaction. “We’re grateful for many repeat clients and working at a great company that has supported the team over the years.”

Read added, “Variety is the spice of life, and that could not ring truer than with the variety of clients and retail investments our team represented over many years. While our 1,000th sale is a significant milestone, we approach every assignment and transaction with the same level of passion and process, regardless of its size. We are grateful for our clients’ trust in our ability to execute and represent their best interests, which has been instrumental in our success.”

Going forward, Slusher will lead National Retail Partner’s efforts in the region while Voorhees and Read will handle private client opportunities. The two separate teams will be positioned to service a wide variety of retail investment matters across the region. Long recognized as industry-leading retail investment experts, the teams continue to specialize in portfolio sales, anchored centers, strip centers, single-tenant assets, specialty retail projects, REO and Receivership assets and parcelized disposition strategy opportunities. Based in Orange County, California, the teams consist of specialists with institutional and private client relationships that leverage institutional quality knowledge and service across unparalleled access to private capital investors and the brokers who represent them, domestically and around the world.
