Principals Steve Bruce and Matt Weaver of Lee & Associates represented both the seller, Maganda Corporation, and the buyer, American Assets Trust, in this off-market transaction. Maganda is a privately-held family corporation and American Assets Trust is a full-service real estate investment trust that owns, operates, acquires and develops retail, office and multifamily properties in California, Hawaii and Oregon.
According to lead broker on the deal, Steve Bruce, this deal is one of the largest coastal commercial land transactions to sell in the past five years. American Assets Trust purchased the land with the intention of redeveloping the site for commercial/residential use.
“The site has been in great need of redevelopment. American Assets is an excellent owner who will develop the land to its highest and best use, while also giving the Solana Beach community a much desired mixed-use project,” said Bruce.
