Situated within the fast growing region known as the Inland Empire, Temecula is located in southwest Riverside County and approximately 40 minutes north of San Diego. The development of Winchester Commercial Center is required to meet the needs of the community’s rapidly expanding residential base.
All six office buildings in the center have been pre-sold and the retail portion of the project is about 30% pre-leased. Construction of the center will commence during the second quarter 2007 with a projected completion date of December 2008. The Ontario, California office of CB Richard Ellis is handling the sales and leasing of the center.
Falcon provided $7.7 million of equity to fund the development of the Winchester Commercial Center. United Commercial Bank has provided a $17.6 million construction loan to finance the development. The total development costs of Winchester Commercial Center are expected to reach about $25.3 million.
“With current yields for stable assets so compressed, development joint ventures such as the one we completed for Winchester Commercial Center are a natural extension of our business platform,” said Scott Sweeney, Executive Vice President of Falcon Real Estate. “Falcon has allocated additional funds for similar projects.”
The architect is Designers Collective Incorporated of Concord, Calif. A general contractor has not been selected yet.
