VISTA, Calif. — (RealEstateRama) — CBRE Vice Chairman Philip D. Voorhees announced today that the National Retail Partners-West (NRP-West) completed the sale of Vista Village in North County San Diego, Calif., a dominant 195,009-square-foot entertainment-focused neighborhood shopping center with key tenants including Frazier Farms, Cinepolis, Wave Waterpark (not a part of the sale), Pets Plus, Crunch Fitness, and others. The sale price could not be disclosed.
CBRE retail experts Jimmy Slusher, Eric Shain, Voorhees and CBRE San Diego-based Reg Kobzi and his retail team represented the seller, SITE Centers (formerly DDR), an Ohio-based real estate investment company. The buyer, also represented by the NRP-West team, is CFT Vista, LLC, a real estate investment firm based in Las Vegas, Nev.
“Seasoned investors covet high-performing, grocery-anchored centers in Southern California coastal markets,” said Voorhees. “The combination of Frazier Farms and Cinepolis provides two ideal anchors for this project. CBRE expects Vista Village will produce marvelous returns for the buyer now and into the future.”
Built in 2003 with a contemporary slant on traditional retail architecture, the property benefits from frontage along Vista Village Drive, one of the trade area’s main arterials along with immediate access to Highway 78. With proximity to new multi-family developments located inside Vista Village (41 units at The Vista Creekside apartment homes) and adjacent along Main Street (126 units), Vista Village offers growth and high demand from locals.
“In addition to growing residential density around the asset, Vista Village offered a blend of traditional and experience-based tenancy alongside a high performing natural grocer, all in strong demand from investors,” said Slusher. “The non-traditional site plan was complemented by a city-owned water park and served by a heavily trafficked light rail, making Vista Village a staple of the surrounding community.”
According to Shain, CBRE’s marketing efforts produced more than 314 confidentiality agreement/offering memoranda distributed and through the team’s “managed bid” offer process, generated multiple offers to purchase the property.
“CFT’s ability to move quickly and with confidence made the difference in this competitive bidding process,” noted Slusher.
