Two Retail Pad Buildings Trade for $5.6M at Walgreens-Anchored Shopping Center in Inland Empire
By: Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors
"We executed a break-up strategy of two parcels to maximize the value for the seller and procured multiple qualified offers within the first month of marketing both pads," said Fryman. "We achieved an aggressive cap rate for both sales, demonstrating that well-located, multi-tenant retail assets with food and service-based, internet-resistant tenants are still in high demand."
Located at 2645 East Riverside Drive in Ontario, Fryman arranged the sale of a two-tenant, 13,381-square-
Fryman also arranged the sale of an 8,210-square-
"Investors and the eventual buyers were very attracted to the overall strength of the location and the history of Walgreens being located at the center since its opening in 2007," said Fryman. Other national and regional tenants that are located within the Walgreens-anchored shopping center, but not included in either transaction, are Chase Bank, Juice it Up!, Papa John's Pizza, Subway, The UPS Store and Verizon.
The shopping center is situated at the signalized intersection of South Archibald Avenue and East Riverside Drive with 36,000 cars per day. Other national tenants located at the intersection include AutoZone, Jack in the Box, Little Caesars, Ralphs grocery store and Rite Aid.
According to Fryman, the properties benefit from an affluent, high-growth demographic. "There are 269,000 people within a five-mile radius with an average household income of $92,000 within a one-mile radius. The population grew by a whopping 49 percent between 2000-2018 with projected growth of 8 percent between 2018-2023," noted Fryman. The properties are located across from Ontario Ranch, the largest planned community in Southern California. Ontario Ranch will consist of 46,000 homes with 150,000 residents at build out.
The properties are also easily accessible to State Route 60, which is located one mile south of the center, connecting the Inland Empire to Downtown Los Angeles.
"We will continue to see the implementation of the break-up strategy of larger shopping centers as sellers look to capitalize on a larger buyer pool that exists for properties under $5 million," said Fryman. "However, the break-up strategy has some complexities, requiring a broker who has experience in this execution to reap the financial rewards."
