Lancaster Commerce Center
-- IRVINE, CALIF. – Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, one of the most dominant retail investment groups in the western United States and a market leader in the sale of retail properties, announced today that the firm is now marketing for sale a portfolio of four shopping centers in southern California in Hawaiian Gardens, Lancaster, Mission Viejo and Oxnard. Consisting of approximately 513,070 total square feet, the four properties are offered for sale unpriced and can be purchased individually or as a portfolio.
“It’s a unique and exciting retail investment opportunity in today’s market,” said Edward B. Hanley, president of Hanley Investment Group. “In a time where a majority of investors are seeking shopping centers with a value-add component, specifically southern California, this portfolio offers a rare opportunity to acquire four extremely well located shopping centers that all contain upside potential to increase rents and lease-up existing vacancy.”
“These types of retail assets with some form of a value-add component are highly sought-after in today’s market,” adds Hanley. “Even though the supply of available properties on the market has appeared to increase in the last couple of months, we believe this portfolio will gain a lot of interest based on the lack of similar retail properties available in southern California and the steady demand of pent-up capital starving for retail properties with upside.”
The portfolio consists of two centers in Los Angeles County. The largest in the offering known as Lancaster Commerce Center is a 290,428-square-
foot shopping center anchored by Target (not a part of offering) located in Lancaster, Calif. Built in 1988, Lancaster Commerce Center is strategically located at the Avenue K on/off ramp to the Antelope Valley Freeway (State Route 14), which is a busy commuter freeway connecting Lancaster to the nearby Greater Los Angeles area.

Approximately 64 percent of the occupied square footage is leased to national credit tenants including Big 5 Sporting Goods, Factory 2-U, Kaiser Foundation Health, Ross Dress for Less, The Salvation Army, AAA Automobile Club of Southern California, and Aaron’s Rents.

The other Los Angeles County offering is Hawaiian Gardens Town Center, a 78,815-square-
