SAN DIEGO, Calif. – (RealEstateRama) — CBRE Executive Vice President, Philip D. Voorhees announced today that he and the National Retail Partners-West (NRP-West), in conjunction with San Diego-based Senior Vice President Reg Kobzi, completed the sale of Riverdale Shopping Center, a neighborhood retail center in the submarket of Mission Gorge of San Diego, anchored by CVS/pharmacy, along with a synergistic mix of food, service and retail co-tenancy. The sale price was $10.1 million.
CBRE retail experts Voorhees, Jimmy Slusher, Kirk Brummer, Megan Wood, Sean Heitzler and Kobzi represented the seller, a partnership advised by San Diego based commercial real estate investment firm SENTRE, including Peckham Properties, Inc., Commercial Sites Limited, and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., in its fiduciary capacity as Trustee of McKinney Survivor’s Trust. The buyer, also represented by Kobzi, was San Diego-based Becker Properties, LLC, who purchased the property as an addition to its portfolio.
“The shopping center is an infill property and 50 percent of the tenants have been on the property for more than 20 years,” said Brad Becker, Principal of Becker Properties. “The sales volume for the tenants are excellent, the rents are well below market and there is an opportunity to refresh the appearance and tenant mix in the near future. This completes Becker Properties fourth acquisition in San Diego County and seventh overall in Southern California in the past 24 months.
“Historically we have been a developer and value-add investor; we see this property as more passive; however, with our planned value-add components, we believe we will keep this property for years to come,” said Becker who has built and/or bought 50 shopping centers and NNN investments in his career.”
“There is great visibility of this center from Friars Road and the surrounding retail makes this center a very attractive investment for the buyer,” said Kobzi.
Built in 1980, Riverdale Shopping Center is a wholly-owned 66,416 square-foot shopping center on 10.22 acres of leased-fee and fee-simple land and situated at 10320-10370 Friars Road. The single-level CVS-anchored retail center was 100 percent leased at the time of sale and includes tenants Black Angus, and Armstrong Nursery.
“The acquisition of Riverdale Shopping Center provided an opportunity for an investor to purchase a stabilized shopping center with increasing cash flow,” said Voorhees.
According to Voorhees and Kobzi, the CBRE’s joint marketing efforts distributed more than 509 offering memoranda and through the teams’ “managed bid” offer process, generated more than six offers to purchase the property.
“The San Diego retail market fundamentals remained positive in the third quarter of 2017, as average asking rates increased $0.01 quarter-over-quarter to $2.29 triple net, the highest rate since the recession,” Kobzi said. “Due to strong net absorption, total vacancy rates declined 20 basis points quarter-over-quarter to 4.8 percent.”
