Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) has announced the sale of a 121,883-square-foot portion of Foothill Ranch Towne Center. Located at 36532 Towne Center Drive in the city of Lake Forest, Foothill Ranch Towne Center is a one million square foot master-planned regional retail center anchored by Walmart and Target.
NKF Vice Chairman Pete Bethea and Senior Managing Directors Rob Ippolito and Glenn Rudy represented the seller Foothill Ranch LLC in the $22.25 million sale to a private family trust.
The portion sold by the NKF team is 100 percent occupied by five tenants including national credit tenant At Home Furnishings as anchor. The opening of At Home’s inaugural California location in Lake Forest underscores the strength of this south County community and directly benefits junior anchor tenant Petsmart, which recently exercised its second of four, five-year options. At Home and Petsmart are further complemented by Chipotle and Red Robin restaurants along with a nail salon.
“The area has experienced explosive economic and residential growth with more than 13,000 new housing units across six residential developments in the immediate area,” said Rudy. “This investment within the dominant retail trade area among an affluent customer base with significant barriers to entry will serve as a strategic complement to the buyer’s retail portfolio in Southern California.”
