IRVINE, CALIF. – Hanley Investment Group, a nationally-recognized boutique real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced today that the company has negotiated the sale of two southern California shopping centers in separate transactions, totaling nearly $27 million. Both centers, Vineyard Plaza in Oxnard and Palmdale Promenade in Palmdale, demonstrate investors’ continued appetite for well-located value-add opportunities.  

In Oxnard, Calif., Hanley Investment Group’s President Ed Hanley, Executive Vice President Bill Asher and Senior Vice President Kevin Fryman represented the seller, a Los Angeles based private investor, in the sale of Vineyard Plaza. The purchase price was $17,600,000. Built in 1988 on 5.47 acres and remodeled in 2004, the 64,421-square-foot Vineyard Plaza is located on Pacific Coast Highway at 2311-2385 North Oxnard Boulevard in Oxnard. Tenants include Big 5 Sporting Goods, US Bank, Carl’s Jr. (NAP, not a part of the sale), Circle K, US Armed Forces, H&R Block, State Farm and Waba Grill. The center was 85% occupied at the time of the sale.  

“Supply for well-located value-add retail investments in southern California remains very low,” said Fryman. “We generated multiple motivated and qualified offers based on the quality of the location and future upside the property presented with 15% vacancy and various short term leases at below market rates.”  

“We strategically negotiated and structured a contract that was mutually beneficial to both parties while helping the buyer timely satisfy a 1031 exchange,” Asher said. The buyer, 23560 Crenshaw LLC based in Los Angeles, was represented by Nick Borrelli of Coldwell Banker Commercial NRT in Arcadia, Calif.  

In Palmdale, Calif., Hanley and Asher represented the buyer and seller in the sale of Palmdale Promenade, a 96,352-square-foot shopping center located at 412-442 W. Rancho Vista Boulevard. The purchase price was $9,270,000. Palmdale Promenade is anchored by Home Depot (NAP), Burlington Coat Factory (NAP), and 99 Cents Only Stores. Other national tenants include HomeTown Buffet, Leslie’s Pool Supplies, Payless ShoeSource and Subway. Built in 1991, the center is situated on 5.52 acres and was 82% occupied at the time of the sale. Both the buyer and seller were private investors from the Los Angeles area.
“We procured multiple offers from southern California investors and ultimately selected a buyer that had a long-standing banking relationship which helped facilitate the appropriate financing based on the current occupancy at the property,” said Asher.

“Palmdale Promenade and Vineyard Plaza represent prime examples of shopping centers offering approximately 150-200 basis points higher in yield compared to a traditional grocery-anchored center in a core location. Non-institutional buyers typically can’t compete when pursuing a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s anchored center,” Asher noted.  

“Properties like Palmdale and Oxnard have become attractive alternatives for private investors seeking better returns outside Los Angeles proper with non-traditional grocery anchors or no major anchors at all,” Fryman added.   

“This is a trend we’ll continue to see prevalent in today’s market and in the near future,” said Fryman who noted Hanley’s recent success with transacting these types of retail properties in Santa Clarita. Fryman noted Boot Barn Plaza, a 51,385-square-foot shopping center is currently in escrow; Stevenson Ranch Plaza, a 29,817-square-foot shopping center has multiple offers and heading toward contract; and Seco Canyon Village, a 42,134-square-foot CVS/pharmacy-anchored center Hanley sold last year.
