97% Leased McCalla Centre in Santa Ana Sells for $31.8 Million, 3.76% Cap Rate
SANTA ANA, CALIF. – December 09, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — CBRE Executive Vice President Philip D. Voorhees announced today that he and the National Retail Investment Group – West (NRIG-West) team completed the sale of McCalla Centre, a 110,620-square-foot neighborhood shopping center in the city of Santa Ana, Calif., anchored by a high-performing Northgate Market and CVS/pharmacy, along with a synergistic mix of retail and shop tenants. The sale price was $31,800,000, representing a 3.76% cap rate on high occupancy.
CBRE’s retail investment experts Voorhees, James Slusher, Megan Wood, Brad Rable, Matt Burson and John Read represented the seller, an Orange County-based private investor partnership and the center’s original developer. The buyer, also represented by Voorhees and the NRIG-West team, was a San Diego-based private real estate investment fund manager.
Built in 1986, McCalla Centre is located on 8.72 acres at 230 N. Harbor Boulevard in Santa Ana, near W. 1st Street. The shopping center was 97% occupied at the time. “McCalla Centre possesses the extremely solid real estate fundamentals all seasoned investors covet and pursue: a densely populated, infill Orange County location, low anchor lease rates providing tremendous embedded value and creating a future upside, and like Northgate Market, many of the tenants perform at high sales volumes,” said Voorhees.
According to Voorhees, the CBRE team’s marketing system distributed more than 384 offering memoranda to investors and brokers, and through the team’s “managed bid” offer process, generated more than 14 offers to purchase the property. The purchase price exceeded CBRE’s pricing guidance to the ownership.
“At McCalla Centre, pricing surpassed seller expectations,” said Voorhees. “And, the purchaser will be an excellent steward of this asset for years to come. This was a wonderful execution for all parties.”
With this closing, CBRE’s NRIG-West team has closed 162 transactions since the start of 2012 for a total consideration of $3.0 billion. In total, the NRIG-West team has listed and sold more than $9.0 billion in retail transactions.
