Eric P. Wohl of Hanley Investment Group represented the seller in the sale of a 16,100-square-
The 16,100-square foot portion of Blythe Towne Center is located at 824-836, 862-868, 874,878 East Hobsonway at the signalized intersection of E. Hobsonway and S. Seventh Street. Situated on a .75-acre parcel of land within an Albertsons and Rite Aid anchored shopping center, the sale consisted of five tenants including Blockbuster Video, Social Security, Fashion Mart, La Florida Mexican Restaurant and Vision Center. Built in 1991, the three buildings purchased were 100% occupied at the time of sale. The seller was a private investor out of Newport Beach, Calif.
The 6,000-square foot portion within Blythe Towne Center is located at 812 East Hobsonway and is situated on a .26-acre parcel of land. The sale consisted of one building occupied by two tenants, AutoZone and Blimpies. The property, also built in 1991, was 100% occupied at the time of sale. The seller was a private investor out of Laguna Niguel, Calif.
“Blythe Towne Center is the dominant grocery/drug anchored center in the city, which was very appealing to the buyer who moved quickly to close on both offerings,” said Eric Wohl, vice president at Hanley Investment Group. “Upon moving forward with one portion of the property, the buyer also liked the AutoZone/Blimpies piece given the upside potential to increase rents on both tenants in the near future. With the acquisition of both offerings, the buyer took control of all components of the shopping center other than the Albertsons and Rite Aid.”
