Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announces the completion of a four-property retail portfolio sale for approximately $35 million. The four properties in the portfolio include a Petco located in Northridge and a Petco, Office Depot, and multi-tenant property all located in the South Bay.
NKF Vice Chairman Bill Bauman, Executive Managing Director Kyle Miller and Senior Managing Director Dan Samulski represented the seller, Beverly Hills-based investor Weiss Development, to the buyers, a mix of private and institutional investors.
The portfolio totals more than 65,400 square feet of space. Three of the properties are single tenant. The fourth property is multi-tenant and includes restaurants such as Starbucks, Subway, Flame Broiler, and Sushi Boy. The Office Depot and multi-tenant strip center are outparcels to a very successful Walmart in Torrance, while the Petco in Northridge is an outparcel to a high-volume Costco.
“There continues to be significant demand for well-located retail assets in Los Angeles. NKF advised the seller that a break-up strategy to individual investors would yield the highest value, therefore we deployed a patient strategy and targeted 1031 buyers and existing ownerships within the surrounding shopping centers. Three of the four buyers were active 1031 buyers with the fourth being an institutional owner that already controlled the balance of the shopping center,” said Bauman.
